Poetry Dreams In Overdramatics This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

I'd like to see you write a poem.
Because it's oh so easy, right?

Well.

Here are the rules-


No Break Up poems.

Nothing about pretty butterflies


Or flowers



or Trees




Or nature in general.

No angsty 'I hate you!' poems

Or "my life sucks and here's why" poems





Don't tell me your life story.
I assure you, I don't care about your melancholy childhood or your family skeltons.

Life.
Death.
We'll have none of those overdone topics.

They're kind of like the dream topic. With it's overdramatics and whatnot.


And don't waste my time



telling


l


i

.
Love poems are deifinitely out of the question.
(Highly overrated, and hardly ever well written)

Those are the rules.







Now.
I'd like to see you write a poem.

Because it's oh so easy.

.........Right?

Haha.
True.
In certain circumstance.
After all, there are exceptions to EVERY rule.
And there is ALWAYS artistic license.
:)
Good poem.
