My first attempt at poetry. Warning: May contain humor!
Please enjoy

Booksie, Oh Booksie...

This site is just so right,

You'll help me to realize my dreams

I'll write all through the night.

Booksie, ahh Booksie,

I have comments and fan requests!

Surely they can't be all for me,

I'm nowhere near the best!

Booksie.. Erm Booksie....

What is going on?

I've imported two more chapters now,

The format's all gone wrong!

Booksie, oh Booksie...

You really take your time

I wouldn't mind it all that much,

But I suck when I attempt a rhyme.

Booksie... No Booksie....

You seem to really tease.

Wha'd you want... My hair pulled out?

Me begging on my Knees??

Booksie, dear Booksie....

I've REALLY done my best

I've had to shut down eight times now,

And still, you're such a mess.

Oh Booksie, Please Booksie...

Just TRY to bloody load

If I didn't need this Laptop now,

I'd fling it down the road!

Booksie... WHY booksie?

You've caused me to explode...

I put my fist right through the screen,

And ended my first ode.

I don't mean to sound rude but not everyone can be a poet. And poems don't have to ryhm, it sounded a little forced. And usually what makes a poem come out the way you want it is if you write about your strong opinions or beliefs. If it's something that has little importance to you than your work willl always be incomplete. Your writing should be an extension of yourself, the reader should be able to learn a little bit about the writer. If not than your words have no meaning to you, and if they have no meaning to you, the writer, how is anyone else supposed to. You need put yourself into your writing, just write as if you were talking. I, along with everyone else, want people to understand. I know that if they don't undersant my writing they don't understand me. The trick is to find out what is truely important to you and why, and than try to find a way to explain it to others.
Please note that I still haven't perfected my poetry either. This is only how I am able to write. It's what I've found most effective so far. But crtics always help too. Hope I didn't sound mean in anyway, I just feel that if I put good I like it or something like that, nothing woulg be gained. In fact it would be information lost, I hate to be unproductive.-Ariel

Hiya Ariel :)
I totally agree with you - Not everyone can be a poet! I know a poem need not rhyme, but I was just messing about, trying something different :) I wrote it to sound a bit stressed, As that is the feeling you have, when trying to get things done (And nothing wants to work!). As I mentioned in my miniblog(?), I'm not a poet - (was I out of my comfort zone? Oh yes!) I like poetry, I'm just more passionate about writing stories; and unfortunatley I had little time for poetry... There was always another book to read, Or documentary to watch, etc. I only ever dealt with poetry when school required it. I tend to hope that (In a sense, anyway) my style of writing gives the reader glimpses into who I am. If more information is needed - Then no one should feel too afraid to ask! :) Please don't feel that you have been too harsh, or mean, or rude... You haven't. You have been honest, and helpful - For this I thank you! Kindest regards

chuck is my world

Hi, my name is Kiara. I am new to booksie and I just finished reading your 'Ode To Booksie'. It was very cleaver and I enjoyed reading it. Are you a fan of My Favorite Cousin New Yorker?? I heard that her page is REALLY good. I'll have to check it out. (I heard a rumor that My Favorite Cousin New Yorker was sexually abused by her dad's best friend when she was little.) I found out that the rumor is confirmed and my heart aches for her!:( The poor thing!!!:(

Anyway, I also write lyrics and stories in my spare time so I am going to get a LOT of my work published on this site for anyone to look at. My goal is to have a LOT of fans that I can become friends with.



Fri, January 14th, 2011 12:21pm


Hi Kiara, Thanks for liking "OtB", I'm glad you enjoyed it :) My favourite cousin New Yorker is a very talented writer, and her page is really good, this is true! A rumor on the other hand, is just that... It's what somebody else has "heard", and unless it is stated to be true by the person Directly involved; then I wouldn't wish to either comment on it, Or put too much 'faith' in it. And you should not either.
Check out her page, and read her work. Ask her about her inspirations etc, but let Rumors die on the floor where they belong. (Sorry, I find rumors to have little basis in fact, and they annoy me) Ok, on to you! I'll check out your writing, And you never know, if people like what you write then you'll gain fans pretty quickly. But it can take time also.
Regards, and best wishes

lol nice poem. Much better than my attempts anyways. XD I totally relate to the insane loading times. I've only been a member for a few hours and I already feel like strangling my computer. ):

Fri, January 14th, 2011 4:28pm


Hehe thanks :) Inspiration for poetry hits randomly! To me (weird as I am) It's abit like lightning! It'll blow your Nikes off; it might just kill you, but it never strikes the same place twice! Anyway.... Rambling on lol
Keep writing, & keep smilin' :D
