Grrrrr Frogdroppings, how can I enter this thread now after such a nice compliment and complain about how all this vile niceness makes me vomit a little in my mouth. This be some kind of Frog trickery (but many thanks, love you too).
Does that mean I have to be nice to the person above me now? Being nice doesn’t come naturally to me but I’ll try: BC is a man of great humor and strong opinions, sometimes I love to hate him, sometimes I hate that I love him, but he’s certainly never dull.
I want to know the whole bag of marbles. You know I wrote two poems, they are simplistic and way to easy to understand. I want to learn more about metaphors with them so I can better recite to my wife. She likes poems but I can't say them smoothly. I always end up pausing for like twenty minutes while thinking of something that ryhmes with the last word I said. I can write one down but I edit it like a hundred times. Any ideas?
the best advice i can give you..... as honestly i know nothing about how to write poems i just do it
write every day..... keep a book and if it is for your wife, jot down the words just as they tumble out about her for at least a week at different times of the day to catch different moods..... don't look back on any of it til you finish at least a week.... use the words that spill out the most in your affection for her, and of course what you feel she would like to hear also...... then let us see it. Anyone who really wants to write well can but it is all about practice. Listen to romantic music while you are doing your writing that could help. Favourite photos of her to to inspire you.... and of course the real person.... do you need more than that...
Nah that will suffice for now, I'm going to publish a lot of stuff when I get back from leave. I was supposed to leave wednesday morning but got stuck here till later on.
