If you check on the main site you’ll find that poetry about love tends to be the most popular, in fact a large proportion of all poetry written, that is being written, or will be written is on that very subject. The reason seems to me to be pretty clear, love is a pretty strong emotion and emotionally driven writers tend to let out those emotions in the form of poems. The consumer, or reader, is also guided when in such a state to seek out and read these emotional outpourings.
The cliches, overused words and sappiness you describe is probably due to the fact that the writer is either:
A) A beginner, in which case he/she will probably get better from being here.
B) Called Craig, in which case he probably won’t.
C) Overcome by the above mentioned emotion, in which case he/she is past redemption (and good luck to them)
Thanks for the chance to read and reply.
Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.
