You use a ****ing emoticon in the poem.

You use "walking on air".

Eliminate both of these things and it will still be horrible, but not to the point that it's insulting the intelligence of the reader.

edit: it appears you have fixed the emoticon. Good for you.

The poem is littered with cliche phrases. there's really nothing else I can say about it. It's just bad. You need to be a bit more original; give us something a bit more inspired and not completely cliche.

It probably is because of the following:

A lot of the posts were from the same people.

There's this trend of trailing off largely from the poem to other posts.



Not saying that's necessarily wrong, but it does contribute to the excess of posts for a weak thread.

I think poems are generally pieced together to leak feelings that are unexplainable.
Everything you described was explainable and very simple. Your spotlight was your "Angel" and you used uncreative metaphors to spice up your simple minded thoughts.
Also, you might be implying your girl has bony shoulders thus wings could pop out at any moment. That's one less blow job mister.

Nah, I actually wrote that other poem for an English assignment last year and was posting it as a mockery, since it contains a similarly repeated term of endearment.

I've been mocking you since about here.
