you go to edit post on your first post of the thread (only if you were the first post on the thread) and at the top of the screen theres a delete button, check the box and click "delete" that does it.

Why are the majority of the poems posted here creepy and depressing? I'm not trying to be mean or anything, I'm just curious. Poetry can be about happy things. Think Silverstein!

Yes, poems can be happy and perky. But some people ( like me ) wanna get their emotions out through words..and sometimes their emotions arent the..best..things ever.

I think the answer to that question is... We're all teenagers! But look around a little more, you'll find that it's not all creepy and depressing.

Oh, and "The Great Smoke Off" is on of my favorite Shel Silverstein poems. Very humorous.

Ok, so you kind of use poetry in a therapeutic way? That's actually a pretty good idea.

magicpie325 - Not all teenagers are angsty and dark, that's just a stereotypical portrayal. I'll like for some happy ones. :)

Right, I'm just saying that many teenagers tend to write poems about "those" days. Don't get me wrong, I'm not placing a stereotype on anyone -- just explaining why there'll be a lot of dreary poems around here.

:) I have my fun poems as well.

yeah poetry is the BEST way to get your feelings out!! it's better than blocking it all up inside and then suddenly bursting one day and breaking down............ O__________o and yeah again, you can write fun poetry, i'm all for that, but the only problem is that when i write poetry about my feelings im usually down, so when im happy i dont always feel the need to write...therefore most of my poems are depressing with the rare fun one! does anyone else feel like that or am i just being weeeeeeiiiiiirrrrrrrrrrrrrrdddd?

You know though poetry is cool it doesn't relly do that much for me. I mean i guess my mind is just too analytical for poetry. I always feel that the whole thing is ridiculous.

I agree it always seems like ones that are sad and depressing are the good ones.. It seems like People write better when they are writing about TRUE feelings and only feel like writing when they are hurt or upset
