Let's throw away the princes,
the knights in shining armor.
No servant boys and princesses.
No magic, no villains.

Because our story isn't like
a fairytale. There were no
battles. There were no wars.

We both know that neither of
us has read Romeo and Juliet,
and I doubt we resemble Elizabeth
and Darcy.

There were no family feuds,
and no love triangles to
throw us off balance.

Because we're anything but a classic.
THIS ARTIST HAS REQUESTED CRITIQUE ON THEIR WORK

I had a different version of this written out, and I was about to post it when I must have accidentally clicked "Cancel". All that work was deleted. :faint:

So, I tried to remember every line I had written down, and I think I got 90% of it right in this revised version. Sadly, I couldn't remember that last 10%.

Hopefully this is acceptable, and not too terrible. Have a good early Valentines Day!

I found this poem very interesting because it had a very medieval feel to it.
I feel as if you have taken language from Romeo and Juliet in the 4th verse which I really like.
It flowed perfectly and I enjoyed the sharpness and the rhythm of each line. The verses are well balanced and I felt the poem was the perfect length. I think the last line really hits the spot, it's very powerful.
I think it sums up how I interrupt this poem. Overall I really like this poem and I am very impressed. Keep up the good work :D

Well of course.  If you were a classic, then you wouldn't be unique, now would you?  ;P

And typically I write everything out in MS Word/Notepad, since I've had similar situations/my internet crash on me, and I lose everything... and then I just copy/paste from there.

Indeed!

Same here. I also save them in my Sta.sh sometimes. :nod:

I haven't used Sta.sh yet.  Then again, I haven't really been around... so it's not like I've really had a chance to yet.  ;P

Is it reliable?

I would say yes, though it may depend on the speed of your computer. :nod:

Hmm, I doubt speed would be an issue - but the internet connection, I'm not so sure.  I do live on campus, after all. =P

I quite enjoyed this lovely little poem, I think it flowed quite nicely with an even beat.  For me, the message comes across as something like this:  "We don't live a fairytale, princes and knights in shining armor don't exist; they're not going to come and sweep you off your feet.  It's time to wake up from your fantasies and live in reality."  Another way I interpreted the message, was something like this: "Our lives aren't perfect magical tales filled with romance and grand events, but that's okay, because we're anything but a classic."

It does have a "very medieval feel to it," as another commenter stated, which to me, also gives it a mystical aura and a feeling of awe.

My thoughts all in all, is that this is an amazing piece that gives me many good emotions as well as a very strong feeling that I can't quite comprehend.  Beautiful job. :clap:

You're very welcome!  I think people deserve to hear nice comments on their work every now and then, especially if they work hard on it.  I personally find it a bit disappointing when I put a lot of effort into something and feel very proud of it, and all someone says is "Nice job."  It also makes me happy when I make others happy.  So thank you!

wow, this gave me chills when I read the last line, beautifully written!
I thought it flowed very well. I'll admit when I read the first line my thought was "good grief another overplayed fairy tale metaphor" but you put a really nice spin on it by allowing your subject to expand past just fairy tales to all classics.
To me, this poem meant that the relationship spoken of isn't perfect or tragically romantic or overly dramatic - it's all the things that people don't realize love is, just kinda simple. So I felt like there was a really positive vibe throughout the poem, and then at the end you kind of stomp on the fairy tale view of love and say "you know what, we don't need that tangle of cliches to have love, we're better this way."

I thought this flowed nicely. I really like all of the allusions to other works in comparison to the love story in this poem. They showed that the love story wasn't like the ones most people dream about (because, realistically it's not going to be) but it is still beautiful in its own way. Well done! :)

I really like this poem! I think it flows quite well, and the message seemed pretty clear. Their love story is something original and new-so it doesn't follow any fairytale. It's better and brighter than anything that came before!:D
