Devil's Song

wicked i might seem
and i do it for my own greed
but what may seem and what may be
might differ, did u ever stop to think m'dear?

now wickedness in all its sense
has a very fragnant essence
one i simply love to perfection balance
it has been known to conqure and kill m'dear.

wickedly ways of my nature
i love to feed and nuture
and i would not care to change for future
for it serves me well and of others i do not think m'dear

my wicked ways might seem odd
one might even call me a fraud!
atleast i do not stink like a rotting toad
its an eternal feat thhat will last longer than you m'dear.....

    Good. You've got the flow and the rhyming. Now try using the iambic pentameter. It is the hardest, and you'll learn to swear sooner than you finish even one stanza, but in the end you'll be making world class poetry.

    PS. - I just don't have the patience to compose poetry unless I am really madly romantically involved with someone. I do have a couple of really, really good poems written, buuuut... you know, they are the property of the people I've wrote them for, and they are very 18+ Audiences. (Which quite effectively excludes babies, might I add.) - Mym

    hey waylander, your poetry's really good, I've just read some of it.

    I'll try to sketch in a brief description of the iambic pentameter. Well, to tell you the truth, it is the most commonly used "meter" in English poetry.

    Meter, huh. So, when you read poetry, when you read poetry, you will notice that your voice goes up and down, and you stress on particular parts.

    The meter is like, a pattern of repetitions of these up-downs and stressing.

    So, the so called, "iambic pentameter", has a pattern where it interchanges between weak unstressed syllables and strong stressed syllables... to make a ten-syllable line (weak strong/weak strong/weak strong/weak strong/weak strong).

    An example of John Keats's "Ode to Nightingale...

    U S U S U S U S U S
    Forlorn! the very word is like a bell
    U S U S U S U S U S
    To toll me back from thee to my sole self!

    (U = Unstressed, S = Stressed)

    Of course, there are huge varieties of meters and style, but I think it's better to use a style than writing blank verse, ne? Hope this clarifies.

    Edit: I meant to vary the distances between the U, and the S's, but it seems that Blogger doesn't want that.
