I made a story with rhymes when I was younger. I was and still am quite proud of it. I might copy/paste it here if I can find the file....

This one is one I wrote and keep in my wallet. I usually look upon it for advice. I wrote it for a girl

Roses are red,
Violets are blue
I'm going to break the flow
Tomas the train
I love you
My poetry is that of a good poet
Now my lady
Drop your pants
I'm going in
To make you
Wednesday's can
I'm getting bored
So ima end it here



BEST POEM EVER LMAO

I'm not a huge poetry fan but this one happens to be one of my favorites.

A Voice On An Answering Machine
by: Yusef Komunyakaa

I can’t erase her voice. If I opened the door to the cage & tossed the magpie
into the air, a part of me would fly away, leaving only the memory of a
plucked string trembling in the night. The voice unwinds breath, soldered
wires, chance, loss, & digitalized impulse. She’s telling me how light
pushed darkness till her father stood at the bedroom door dressed in a white
tunic. Sometimes we all wish we could put words back into our mouths.

I have a plant of hers that has died many times, only to be revived with less
water & more light, always reminding me of the voice caught inside the
little black machine. She lives between the Vale of Kashmir & nirvana,
beneath a bipolar sky. The voice speaks of an atlas & a mask, a map of
Punjab, an ugly scar from college days on her abdomen, the unsaid credo,
but I still can’t make the voice say, Look, I’m sorry. I’ve been dead for a long time.
