Girls Who Write Poetry

I’m nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there’s a pair of us—don’t tell!
They’d banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!

—The deranged Emily Dickinson

If a girl tells you she writes poetry, or God-forbid she actually tries to recite you some of her poetry, run. Run hard and run fast because she is dramatic and unstable. Poetry is a form of ambiguous, obtuse communication, and a girl who takes to creating it is one that will be especially unable to serve a man’s principal need of easygoing, drama-free companionship. The most damaged and insane girls I’ve met have considered themselves budding poets. You were warned.

I remember in the early days of AOL, I met a girl in a chat room who had a cute pic. We started IMing, and she insisted I take a look at her many poems, which she cut and pasted.

My response to her proto-emo woe-is-me crap?

“lol.”

women can’t write shit. it’s all whiny, suicidal crap. They’re Irish Poets without the charm and interest of booze-fueled anger; women’s anger is ovarian. The minority bitches like Maya Angelou are popular because it’s PC.

It’s all depressing, boo-hoo crap. Bronte sisters. Sylvia Plath blah blah. Pseudo literature like Gone With the Wind and My Secret Garden.

Leave them to bodice-rippers and bjs.

Agreed on *writes* poetry being the key word – I know former poetesses who are happy and stable and fantastic, but if you ask them about their poetry, they roll their eyes, wave it off, and refuse to share.

I have to say male poets are also to be avoided at all costs. In addition to the traits you outline for women, then also possess an extraordinary level of self-infatuation that can at first mask the other traits… terrible mess.

I used to have to work in a hall in college that rented rooms. I also had the shitty Friday night shift.

So there was a poetry slam group on campus. Every Friday, I had to hear that crap. From the typical sources: feminist bitches, skanks, unshaven hippies, black kids who think because they’re black they’re deep, and, of course, protester types.

All very loud. All cheered each other like they were Nazis cheering the second coming of fucking Hitler.

People, randomingly throwing out phrases about “peace” and “light” and “racism” does not a poet make, no matter how loud you yell it and no matter how many claps the audience gives you.

Come to think of it, a few musicians should hear that as well.

Run hard and run fast because she is dramatic and unstable

I feel so guilty for laughing. This is a somewhat true stereotype and the same rule applies for men. Male poets are some of the world’s biggest hoes. The left brained weasels will talk a weak willed woman out of her draws in 5 seconds flat.

To give them their due, from the stories I’ve heard some are very talented*wink wink* in the art of love. That’s why spoken work poets frequently have rows of groupies at their readings.

lurker is 100% correct.

All the Jareds and Brittneys write in the style of their educational training. Everybody gets a ribbon and applause – especially those in 35th place.

The Rasheeds and Tayshawnas get that, plus free f00d and rent for themselves and their as of yet unborn 13 new siblings.

I remember only 2 chances where girls were trying to write poetry and showed me their shit.

OMG, it was atrocious.

Not all poetry is bad, though. Although I do prefer prose, some poets can be really good. I think Blake kicks ass in the English language.
And some Brazilian poets from the early XX century too.

Well said, lurker, musicians should be watched carefully too, but only when they try to make their own lyrics, because that’s poetry as well.

i struck up a conversation with a hipster chick at a house party a few months ago…she didn’t display her hipster streak with mere poetry, instead she gave me a little sampling of a track off her upcoming “album”. girls who record hipster-ish music are much worse than poetry writers.

I’ve written poetry, been doing so for many years but as for the above comments on the woe is me crap, does everybody read mainstream writing now? There are lots of other writing that is way better than the above mentioned poets, but to say every woman is the same when she tells you she writes poetry so beware is like saying well every black person or every white person is the same, so I can assume every black person will rob me at some point and every white person is a religious bigot who will try to.control me at some point. To put everybody into one category is really ignorant being as most people just get their opinions off of media anyways. So assuming that people have had bad experiences with female poets, well is it really us thats messed up or you for falling for us? You do know that certain people have a mutual connection for a certain reason, other like minded people get along with their own however brief of time that may be, whether people realize that common fact I dont know.

Roosh’s observation creates ‘food for thought’. I.e. what about girls who ‘express themselves through painting (crap?) ‘ I guess these are just as bad as drama-queens as the ones who define themselves ‘poets’.

I myself am a musician, and music is made of very strong emotions. I am crazy about music and I feel the urge to create. I think in this respect Roosh is no different, in a sense he’s an artist too. I could say that making music is ‘drama’ too, but I now understand my role as a man, which means I keep my musical thoughts to myself.

My music is instrumental, though, ah ah. No lyrics. And I fucking hate cheesy love songs.

Nowadays I don’t even give a fuck about what music a woman listens to, or even if she’s a musician herself. Sad, but all I care is to fuck her, end of story. My point is that, really, what else can you do with a woman, other than fuck her? They are crazy, drama-addict, and full of shit. So I just simplified it all. I don’t give a fuck about all her shit anymore, and I keep mine to myself. She is free to listen to whatever music she wants and do what she wants, as long as I fuck her and she doesn’t give me any shit, she can be in my life. For sex.

Just because you’re not man enough to handle an intense girl and prefer running away doesn’t give you the right to advise others to do the same. Does everybody have to be emotionally dead to please your need for “easy going” and “drama free” ? You’re a fool. And I hope every girl you date is unable of emotion, of empathy, or of loving you to the point of having to write a poem about it. smile Yes, may your life be as drama free as you wish it to be, because no deep girl in her right mind would want you as her companion. Empty girls will suit you better. ♥
