    Re: why does it seem like all the poems that people come up with are sad/dark?

    i noticed that,too. i am part of the school publication and i noticed that almost all poems submitted by our schoolmates were about dark stuff or heartbreak.

    i agree that somber emotions are easier to express, for most people, that is. sometimes, when you're happy, well, you're just happy, and you don't have things bugging you all the time. as for loneliness (and other related emotions), you feel as though you want to release all the things that are occupying your mind, and you put them down on paper. or maybe you write just to take away the numbness.

    besides, in a writer's point of view, dark emotions have a bigger impact than light ones, much like darkness is more appealing than light.

    They say you can't use oversized signatures here on AO.

    not all poems are sad...there are lot of poems were writers write how one look into the sky make his/her day happy...and when he/she put that on papir (i know it sounds stupid)...it's very nice
    when i write poem it's usually about somenone beeing heartbroken...and i don't know why...it's not that i have been heartbroken...it's just thing anyone can feel...and it can sound very nice...and it calms me if i am mad...which is very rear

    Well to put it in real words is, the reason most of the people put dark/sad poems is because they want to show what they feel inside themselves and most of the time they show it is because what may represent them and some of my poems may be happy and adventurous, but behind them it shows the darkness inside them there is always a dark side between poems and real personalities sometimes we cannot show them because we may think all of you can get worry about it so this is what i truly believe in and most importantly it is alrite to be in that type of situation.

    Re: why does it seem like all the poems that people come up with are sad/dark?

    Personally I like all kinds of poetry. I do not care for poetry that is like "rip out my soul, drink my blood, slitting my wrists wah wah wah" I am sorry...that stuff is not poetry at all. It is crap in my opinion. I do like dark poetry and sad poetry but that other stuff doesn't count in my book.

    i think its because people find it harder to put happy into words

    Sometimes I still dream of you, even though you were so cold

    Re: why does it seem like all the poems that people come up with are sad/dark?

    im not goth or even a person who likes
    happpy things what i write is more about
    real life like a few of my poems most have liked.

    i mean when writing about life there isnt any real
    hapiness unless someone puts it there and im not
    abput to change things just because i want a better
    poem , i would rather write about life as it is which
    not rainbows or chirping birds thats stuff is a pack
    of lies .

    thats becuase its about life in genaral who wants tohear a lie that somoen thingks is real? i mean what i write isnt happy but it isnt emo either its real life and you cant base poems of something that isnt real.

    well you can but it isnt as good
