This is my first time posting poetry outside of Teen #2, so let me first say hello to everyone. HI     I wrote this poem about 5 minutes ago in response to a thread in the philosophy forum, hope ya like it.


Day after day I hear the same,
"I want a nice guy, even if plain,
To him I would be a Queen,
No matter what, he wouldn't be mean."

I aspire to be all they crave,
But am treated like some kind of knave.
Over the jocks they swoon,
Wanting princes but finding baffoons.

Vicious cycle, never ending
Lust indulged, emotions pending
Try looking beyond the skin,
For it is deceptively thin.

I guess once we all grow older,
I can be a little bit bolder,
To find someone willing to be mine,
Because right now, you are all wasting my time.

Great poem, Mistikman....I would've given an arm and a leg to find a guy that liked poetry back in high school (which wasn't too long ago! LOL)!!!!  To hear from a guy's point of view on this subject is interesting.

you like my signature? Thanks, I thought it up all by myself  
Thanks for the positive remarks, I was a little anxious about posting here, seeing as the average post is much better than in the teen forum. I thought I would be ignored for having such lackluster poetry

mistikman: *sniff* yet another one of the teens is posting in the grown-up forum now *wipes back a tear*... seriously though, i dont think you have to worry too much... you're stuff is always good... including this one... i read the posts in the philosophy forum and i think you do a good job expressing yourself here    in fact, you inspired me to write a follow-up poem to this one... i posted in here in this forum... let me know what you think...

sincerely,
jerome the boy with no brain

As e'er beneath a waning moon was haunted
By woman wailing for her demon-lover!

No need to be nervous...we don't bite here...hard anyway!! In reply to your poem...you lack nothing that I can see...you need to stop wasting your time with girls that take advantage of you...and one day you'll find one that praises you dear!!

Bobbycat- Guys like me exist in every high school, we tend to not stand out though   Thanks for the praise.

Breathe~- likewise  

Jerome- Great to get a response from you, and as always thanks for the supportive remarks   The teen forum will be my home for another 2 years or so, so dont worry about me leaving just yet  

Devina- Thanks, but I am currently interested in 1 girl, and I am not wasting my time on her. She isnt the reason I wrote this poem.   Course, she still wont go out with me, but I have the big guns coming out on valentines day, so well see what happens

I know the exact feeling in this poem.  It wasn't until after High School that females really started to take notice of me.  Either that or I was just too oblivious to realize it.    I like the poem.  It is good and well written.  Keep it up and keep posting in here every once in a while.  Atleast for me.

Welcome to Open Forum...I like this very much. I especially like that you can express your emotions...it's a trait that girls look for in a guy, trust me!

Somewhere in that mess of girls, one will stand out from the crowd and see you for the gentle soul you are!

Very nice poem, you write beautifully!

Poet deVine- Oh I hope it comes soon, if I am horribly alone much longer I dont know what I will do. All this affection building up with no one to shower it on!

Corinne- Yea and I think I have found her, I am now working on convincing her I am a nice guy that she would want to go out with   Thanks for the reply!

jcthaman- Gee, now I feel bad for stealing your thunder. I doubt yours would have been worse than mine, mine isnt that great   Thanks for the positive feedback anyway

I, too, am glad you've chosen to post here sometimes, although I don't get to read as much as I'd like, but will look for your work.  

As for this piece, you've crafted it wonderfully!

Mistikman-This is a very sweet and endearing poem.  I also wish I could've met someone like you in high school, most of the guys I knew I found to be superficial and immature.  Trust me you have a special talent that will be appreciated by someone someday.

Great writing.  First I have seen of your work and welcome to open.  Keep sharing your heart with the ladies...One will be worthy in time to keep it.  Share what you are for you are what you share.  Good luck

Seymour Tabin- Thank you!  

Gemini- Heh, that seems to be a common response here, why dont you all come and go to my High School?  

First__Knight- Thats what I been doing in the hopes that it will eventually work. I'll keep you posted
