you’re a
temperamental bitch
that moans when I go.

You compare
alcohol
to happiness.

You creep
from throats
& bones
like some
hungry monster.

But Poetry,
language
was invented
for you.

You awoke
a rhythm
between my
fingertips
that still
taunts
me.

You’re either a
vital organ,
or blood.

However, Poetry,
are you cheaper
than the women
in the empty spaces
of my life-

or the secrets
I write
between my thighs?

Poetry,
I am Fifty Shades
of girl.

Why should I feed you?

Do you know
what to do
with my body
when you are merely
ink stained fingers
soaked in passing

& the fevers
conjured
within burning stars?

I didn’t think so.
Another randomly generated facebook status poem.

Holy crap, this poem is the product of randomly generated Facebook statuses? :O That's incredible!

I cannot believe that you had the patience to write something like this, and use such an interesting technique. The poem didn't feel disjointed at all which sometimes can happen when you do something like this, but this poem of yours just flows so beautifully. Also, once again you have displayed your brilliance at crafting such mouthwatering imagery. :heart:

A relation between love/hate to the poetry itself? Not bad, sounds powerful :) Isn't poetry a double edged sword to love the inner land of our feelings and hating the darkness of the world we are on?

Jeez this is great. Thanks for introducing that app. It gets the creative juices flowing. Its neat haha.
this is my favorite line:
"You awoke
a rhythm
between my
fingertips
that still
taunts
me.

You’re either a
vital organ,
or blood."

Those words hit hard.

Do you like, use a generated status per line?

DearPoetry Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Well
"Poetry, you're a temperamental bitch..."
"You compare alcohol to happiness."
"language was invented for you."
were all generated lines that I just made it to be read like a poem, while adding some things help with flow.

But basically every line came from some generated status.

You get what I'm saying? :)

I honestly hate poetry: I hate to read it, to learn about it, to hear it, because all I can find are pretencious and cold written doodles. But somehow, I love this one, it doesn't matter if it's randomly generated: it feels natural and young and spits on everything like an artistic revolution. Goes to my favourites!

Not all poetry is pretentious and cold, you should look at some of the poems in my favs.  If you're interested. :)

So true, so true. And when it becomes decoded, smashed on the floor, stepped on, the flavor's gone. So hard to get that back, it dies too easily.
