The Anti-Poem

November 24, 2011
This is an anti-poem
It is not a poem
I refuse to admit that it’s a poem

I deny this is a poem
I deny being in denial
Don’t argue with me, this is my anti-poem

This is my poem
I refuse to admit it’s a poem
But then, just because you ignore something doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

Niiiiiiiiiiice, love all the contradictions, and love the last line ^_^. Flow could've been a bit better, but that's just how I am lol. Good job :)

Anti-Poems don't have as much flow because they are evidently, not poems.

Holy cow, endless, how can someone who writes so awesomly ever have something so normal as writters block? This is good! my favorite stanza is the second, and my favorite line is "don't argue with me, this is my antipoem."

Awesome.  Short, but good.  My kind of poem. :)

I like how it's self-contradictory; saying "I deny being in denial" first, but then saying "This is my poem, I refuse to admit it's a poem" the next.

This is pretty short, but it was etertaining to read. :D I like it.

Thank you, that was the goal. Contradictions, short, and entertaining.
