Yes, roses are red
And violets are blue
But you have to understand
Who said they had to,
Its about imagination
Emotion and orignality
Not the reiteration
Of dead men's practicality
These words,
They are your sentence
To a world that has to listen
As you create the difference
Whether it be
With angst poem against love
Or how you set your heart free
To fly like a dove,
For these words
Whether or not they be true
Their beauty and ideals
Will be used to define you,
So yes,
Hope ,in fact, has feathers
And like a caged bird it sings
But these words will only be tethers
That strip you of your wings,
Those are their words
Meant for their time
And meant for their herds,
But this your time
Meant for your words
And whether they  be meaningful, stupid
Or completely absurd
I'm sure they'll be amazing.
For those of you who recognize this ,welll i now pronounce you a avid reader of deviantart. i have in fact stolen another theme. OH THE HUMANITY. Why must all the good themes be stolen by writers i admire like =BleedTheDream180 or in this case *DearPoetry (oh yeah someone should probably note her about this i wanna see if she likes my version). Well i technically didn't steal since in each seperate case they each got got the idea i used from different sources. She supposedly heard about this on tumblr and i particularly liked her take on it so i made my own. Hope everyone enjoys the ramblings of a destitute plagiarist (and before anyone gets on my case about this i'm JOKING). People never read this thing anyway. Hope everyone enjoys :D

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
It may be a cliche
We all know that much is true
But it's a good starter for those who
Don't want to come up with something new.

Tht was really great! It made me think of this

Roses r red
Violets r blue
Sugar is sweet,
And so r u
But the roses r wilting,
The violets r dead,
The sugar bowl is empty,
And so is ur head!😈

Nice- I still like the Emily Dickinson poem you referenced, regardless of the age! However, poetry is a very fluid and evolving art, as the poem demonstrates.
SpiderMilkshake Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2013  Professional General Artist
Oh, very nice, this. I like this valuable lesson--there comes a time when copying and mimicry will get old and tiresome, and no one's going to be impressed with the same-old same-old. Fanfiction's fine for the off-time--time to write something no one knows about already. :D
WotanTyger Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I say that, to a varying extent, everyone's poetry sucks, including my own on far more occasions than I'd like to admit.

Yet, to steal a line from Kipling:

Just like the dog returns to its vomit,
And the sow returns to her mire...

So does every poetaster just keep on feeling the urge to try and try and try and hope that someday, somehow, something will stick.

Verse in simple words abounds.
Verse unrhymed abandons sounds.

^^ not bad at all.
ladypenn Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2013
This is lovely. I don't really think using a particular theme is "stealing", otherwise everyone who has ever written a love poem is a liar and a thief. While the former is probably sometimes true, the latter is debatable. Either way, theme-stealing or no, I like this.
