Poem with the most romantic 1st line and least romantic second line!

    mistyhorizon2003posted 7 years ago

    Some years ago the Washington Post ran a competition around Valentine's Day asking for a two line rhyme with the most romantic first line and the least romantic second line.

    I came across the results to this competition and was so amused by some of the answers I actually published many of them as a hub. In the spirit of Valentine's Day 2010 I suggest we resurrect this competition and open it to all Hubbers. Just to give you a few ideas here are a selection of the original entries from my published hub.

    "I see your face when I am dreaming,

    That's why I always wake up screaming"

    *****

    "My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife--

    Marrying you screwed up my life."

    *****

    "I thought that I could love no other

    Until that is, I met your brother."

    *****

    "I want to feel your sweet embrace,

    But don't take that paper bag off of your face."

    *****


    There are more on the hub itself, but this is just to give you a few ideas in the hope we may get som even funnier responses.

    Go for it fellow Hubbers and I'll check in again tomorrow (Saturday) to see how you have done.

      The precious moment that you're a part of my life. I cannot move on the way I could. Because I'm living in the past with you always.

    Her Visage
    by Shadesbreath - an original poem.

    When first I gazed upon your face
    I puked.

    I've searched my whole life for you honey;
    Someone with loads and loads of money!

      Yeah.
      I think we're pretty much alone in this thead.
      I'll go brush my teeth, maybe it's my morning breath......lol


      I have another one:



      You shall be my sweetheart forever

      If you please me in each endeavor.

        Shame, I was sure this thread would be popular because of the humour and the laughs.

        Another good one from my hub on the subject is:

        "Roses are red, violets are blue,

        sugar is sweet, and so are you.

        But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead,

        the sugar bowl's empty and so is your head".

    Your bum looks great inside those jeans,
    but best you fix the splitting seams.

    What a shame they're made of glass!

    Excellent answers so far, here is another from my hub:
