Poetry Hates Me

A Poem By KatieSara // 3/12/2009

A rather exaggerated account of being frustrated with an uncooperative poem.

**********************************

Obstinate words! refusing to rhyme,
Simply becoming a waste of my time.
Crumple the paper, drop the pen.
Don't even want to SEE that line again!

Why do I bother? The more I insist,
The more these stubborn syllables resist!
I'm no poet, why even try?
One more failed idea...I'll start to cry!

I need a breather; now my head hurts.
I'm taking a break from these heartless words!
I'll try again later, but for now I believe
That poetry hates me, and-- GAH!
I need a word that rhymes with believe!
*sigh*

Ha ha! you sound like Alecia! I love this poem. It makes me laugh. And yeah, OFG, the internet is poetry saving (or life saving as the case may be). If I ever put together a book full of all my favorite poems, this will be the poem that I put on the inside cover.
