So do women really swoon over sappy over-the-top romantic poetry?

:rofl:

I showed this one of mine to a friend and she was surprised when I forced to to swear that she would never show/tell of it to anybody. It's just so unlike anything I've ever written that it's... well... awkward.

Thank you very much everyone. I appreciate the wonderful comments.

Ariel:

I am glad you like my website. Did you check out my music at all? I think you would like a lot of it. Not the typical stuff you would here on the radio. I do a lot of "on the edge" type stuff, a few band remixes, some love songs, some rock stuff.....even a song about my nightmares. It's a nice mix.

Hey Magus:

I'm not a woman, but I would say from experience that it depends on the woman and the person writing the poem.

If I write something that is highly romantic (as you say, sappy), its coming from my heart and it is an expression of my feelings and emotions, but a lot of guys just write a bunch of crap in the hopes that it gets them "farther" with their girlfriends or wives.

Or they may purchase a poem which was written by an author who had specific feelings in mind when they wrote it, but it gets bought by a guy looking to impress the female in his life.

Some women love a guy who expresses his true feelings.....the ones he doesn't share with his friends. Some women wish their man would. Some women couldn't care less and look at it as bull anyways.

I think it is not the poem itself that defines whether the act is sappy or overly romantic.....it depends on the people involved with the exchange.

Just my two cents.

it really depends on the mood i'm in at the time and the level of sap in the poem. usually i dont like sappy stuff. unless i am in an emotionally fragile state as tends to happen about ince every month or so...then i curl up with my boyfriends (ben and jerry) and watch me some old movies and maybe read some sappy poety or books or something...cause i'm cool like that

SUPER SAPPY ROMANTIC POEM (ala Magus):



Sing me a song of silver swans,
Tell me a tale with carillons.
Hum me a hymn of days long past,
Bring me a ballad of lovers chaste.

Call to me with carols of better times,
Pen to me sad poems and bitter-sweet rhymes.
Whisper words of wings on high,
Murmur sad melodies of sad good-byes.

Quoth again “The Raven”,
Repeat the loss of Lenore,
Tell me, please, that I’m no craven,
Say not to me ‘Nevermore’.

Don’t tell me tales of Juliet.
Say not what, in the end, lovers get.
I don’t want to be a Montague.
Don’t paint my love a crimson hue.

Tell once more of Gwynevere,
Who out of her tower she did peer,
To spy the noble Launcelot.
But we all know what their love wrought.

Write me letters of sad farewells,
And banish my heart beyond torturous Hells.
But now our time of parting is nigh,
“And thus with a kiss I die.”


I look at it and just see a lot of assonance, a lot of alliteration and annoying rhyming couplets (Most of my poetry is free-verse).

I was afraid of that at the beginning. I didn't rip it off of the movie... although they do sound a little familiar, yes?

Sappy, I knew. :rofl: So to counteract it I give whoever's reading it a gallon of ice-cream? O.K...

:wink:

This is the side of women men are attracted to, the kind that drown their problems in dairy.
