Poetry: Date Me Already


“Hi, let’s be friends.” I’d say to


As a general rule of thumb, I don’t like poetry.

I refuse to write it unless some professor decides to assign it, and then my desire for good grades kicks in. This was written back in 2012 when it seemed that everyone was dating and cuteness abounded. I was the sourpuss writer sitting in the corner rolling my eyes at the absurdity, but secretly kind of wishing someone might want to date me.

I unearthed this poem to share with you all in hopes you might think it’s sweet or something.

What About You?

Do you like poetry and if so who is your favorite writer? Yes, do try to change my opinion on poetry.

      Thanks, Ali! I still hate poetry so I don’t think there will be many more poems here. But every once in a while.
