It's no use: I can already see the tongues-in-cheeks brigade emerging victorious from this lyrical skirmish :rolleyes:

I've read through this thread properly now, and my vote definitely goes to Dreama

Sorry everyone else

Jimbo was a happy cod, as happy as could be.
He never worried or complained; his life was trouble-free.
When Jimbo's friends would ask him "what's the secret to your glee?"
He said "I'm just a cod - what the hell could bother me?"
:rolleyes:

what, so happy poems that make light of life aren't as worthy as teenage angst and love poetry?
I personally prefer darker poems, thus I gave you the chance to vote for the one you think is the best so it is not completely biased against lighter poems.

I never inferred anything of the sort. I was merely acquiescing, pre-emptively, to the likely prospect of a crushing defeat :rolleyes:

Personal preference is all well and good, but I just didn't like what I thought was an implication that lighthearted poetry isn't as thought out and "legitimate" as some heartbroken angst fest straight out of livejournal. [not that any poems I've read on here are of that kind of calibre]

I'm just saying that poetry doesn't have to about cutting yourself and crying over ex- boyfriends to be good or even deep.
I second that!

Quite. I sympathise entirely.

If you have a look at some of my poetry, it is very dark but at the same time very sensative and beautiful as I also weave love into it, so dark does not mean angst.

I know dark doesn't mean angst. Angst is commonly misconstrued as clever and dark. It's generally not (:
I made a like-minded point, earlier on, as one component of my justification for esteeming Dreama's work over that of numerous others on this thread. Nothing grates more than generic angst.

So is there non-generic angst then?

ooo ooo i got a poem....it's a sonnet....I wrote it during a lunchtime a few years ago when all my friends who do english were inventing sonnets, it looked fun so I had a go! Basically it's a Sonnet about what a Sonnet is, or what it is to write a sonnet!

Of A Sonnet

This sheet is but a canvas for my mind
A slate to draw the deepest of my dreams
Express the thoughts within that I may find
But ne’er it is as simple as it seems
The words are trapped within the rules of verse
Ensnared are visions that I wish were shown
But liberated they will soon disperse
Set free by words of beauty I’ve not known
The sweetest song they sing of thoughts of love
My words, they flow like a leaf in a stream
Into the sea they fly just like the dove
And in their light my soul’s painting will gleam
Into my thoughts the reader gently glides
And in the cushions of my mind he hides

I have a dream,
And want to shout it out, for all to hear,
People might want to just whisper it from Ear to ear,
My dream may be a shimmer of light;
That struggles in day,
But becomes real at night.
It has exciting jungles,
But far away fear;
It has animals from the littlest ants;
To the biggest stag and deer.
My dream may not come to true,
But I want to play my viola,
on a big stage to you

here's a line or two from my poetry (cant put the full thing as its been published and would be against copyright laws)

I glanced at her
Softly, tenderly
Like flowers
Forever Radiant was her face
