^^the poster three posts above yours is the main moderator on this site and has been for several years. you can see that by the red moderator word and the mod hammer at the end of his post.

furthermore, the person *cowboy* who started this thread was the other moderator until very recently. the rest of us are just fellow posters who have offered what we felt might help clarify things for you based on our own understanding and experiences here....that's all.

none of this is to be hard on you, or anyone...it is simply asking for basic consideration that we post all our own poetry in one thread so we don't fill up the pages with individual poems....and we do all try and honour that rule (as it really is a site rule, whether you believe it or not...please see below).

there are also some poetry threads that are continuous where many posters participate, following from the poem before....so that's another avenue one can join in here and enjoy each other's writing.

it's really a great part of the site and there are many supportive people here. i hope you find it a good place to stick around and share your poetry.

Edit to add: I took a look myself to see where in the rules this issue is stated and here it is....scroll way down to the poetry forum one and...voila.....not so hard to find actually.
(i've made it bold, so easier to see).

PLENTYOFFISH POSTING GUIDELINES
Please Click on any Underlined Links

What Constitutes A Valid Thread

A valid thread consists of you posting a topic, a question, or an opinion on a subject that applies to the forum you are posting to, and to which, the subject of your thread must have the potential to be discussed, or debated in a back and forth dialogue between you and the other members. If you are simply asking for opinions, It would be helpful to start the discussion by you also posting your own opinion.

Polls/Lists/Surveys/Redundant Subjects/Libel Threads are not valid discussion topics for general posting unless it's by the Admin for site ideas/feedback or for Event Hosts to generate ideas for their events.

Please give your thread a clear Subject relating to its content, as this will help facilitate topic searches via the Automated Thread Search Function. The most important part of posting is to remember that you are discussing the subject matter, not the member who posted the thread.

How To Create A Thread or Reply to a Thread

Replying To A Thread Subject or Post

RULE ONE

Insult, Troll, hurl obscenities, be excessively rude, towards anyone, or a group, directly or indirectly, either initiated or in reply to an insult, and your posting rights will be suspended or revoked. If you want to express opinions, do so within the rules and in a civil manner befitting the privileges extended to using the site.

If you're caught with copyright pictures of any noted personality/celebrity/pets/stupid net pictures (in other words anything but you) - all your posts and threads will be removed and your rights suspended for a period to be determined.

ZERO Tolerance for the Following Forums

RULE TWO

Reply to the thread topic or to other relevant on topic replies ONLY.

Please ensure that all your replies are to the topic and nothing else. If your reply isn't related to the actual topic, then it's considered off topic or simply chatting, and will be removed. Replying to another post other than the original post is obviously permitted as long as what you are replying to, is also to the topic. As soon as you start replying to off topic comments, the thread is in jeopardy of being hijacked or derailed - leave off topic replies alone or the thread, if unsalvageable, will be deleted.

Note the following from the Acceptable Use & Posting Rules

D) Any Thread Topic that includes, discusses or makes Reference to, and in any Form names an Individual or Group of Forum Poster(s), whether specifically stated, insinuated or suggested, a POF Member or any Administrative Personnel, is not allowed.

What Does it Mean

As soon as you utter any personalized characterizations about a poster, addressing them by name, making a direct character judgement, or a trolling indirect generalized character judgement, that is meant to include them for the purpose of belittling or insulting them, you have just turned your reply to a personal one and is subject to deletion and your posting rights suspended or removed permanently depending on severity. The full list of infractions can be found in the Acceptable Use & Posting Rules

You discuss the subject matter, not the poster or any character aspects of the poster - period.

As there are two types of forums, the Global Forums, or the Local Forums, Canadian Provincial, US State, UK, Ireleand and Australia, it is perfectly acceptable to have a Global topic in a Local forum, as long as it's not the same member posting both.

Road Tripping
Do Not Post to Local State/Provincial or Country Forums that you are Not a resident of.

Please post either in the Globals or your own Local Forum and ensure you post your topic to the Correct Forum

Keep all private emails off the forums.

Multiple Profiles will be suspended and all threads and posts removed

Do I dare bring this up again for air???

If you're new to the poetry forum, there's one rule here that's a little different....

"Poems and Quotes and Humour - Post your poetry and jokes in these forums, however, do not create a single thread per poem or joke. Create one thread, and add all your poetry or jokes to it. Do not flood the forums with one thread per joke or poem."

The mods have also suggested you can also add onto another poet's thread, if you prefer.

Enjoy...and welcome!

whatever.. here's some cheryl crow.. prolly spelled it wrong. sorry, cheryl.

Hit it!
This ain't no disco
It ain't no country club either
This is LA!
"All I wanna do is have a little fun before I die,"
Says the man next to me out of nowhere
It's apropos of nothing
He says his name's William but I'm sure
He's Bill or Billy or Mac or Buddy
And he's plain ugly to me
And I wonder if he's ever had a day of fun in his
whole life
We are drinking beer at noon on Tuesday
In a bar that faces a giant car wash
The good people of the world are washing their cars
On their lunch break, hosing and scrubbing
As best they can in skirts in suits
They drive their shiny Datsuns and Buicks
Back to the phone company, the record store too
Well, they're nothing like Billy and me, cause
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard
I like a good beer buzz early in the morning
And Billy likes to peel the labels
From his bottles of Bud
He shreds them on the bar
Then he lights every match in an oversized pack
Letting each one burn down to his thick fingers
before blowing and cursing them out
And he's watching the bottles of Bud as they spin on the floor
And a happy couple enters the bar
Dangerously close to one another
The bartender looks up from his want ads
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard
Otherwise the bar is ours,
The day and the night and the car wash too
The matches and the Buds and the clean and dirty cars
The sun and the moon but
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard
Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard

I would like to post my poems, but I'm guessing they would be deleted for self pity, because well a lot of them are self pity.

Poem:...Have Ur Heart Forgotten Me?...

Where are u my love?....
Have ur heart forgotten me?...

My cries go on... silently in the night... but... have fallin to deaf ears...
I quiver and shake in my bed... but, not from the cold...
But... from the chill of ur heart...

Where are u my love?...
Have ur heart forgotten me?...
Am i just a device of ur needs and desires...
How could u have forsaken me?...

Do I not have needs?...
Do I not need love?...
Am I not... a woman?...
Then... why can't u treat me as such?...

Have ur heart fallen into the arms of another?
For the other side of my bed is... cold... and lonely...
And... only tears fill it....
Tears... and memories.... of days gone by.....
Tears and memories of u....

Am I such a child... to believe that love can still exist between two people?
To.... believe... two people can be in love?... and it can last forever?...
That... such a love... can be... infinite?....
I want that kind of love in my life.... I need that kind of love in my life... I crave that kind of love with u.......

Where do ur thoughts leave u now?....
In the arms of another?....
Or... here......
back with me?

For me... ur arms are as the brittle limbs of winter...
for... they have fallen..... and withered away....

The painful seas of ur eyes... has me gasping for life.... for in them... i am drowning....
And....as death comes near... to swallow me up....
who will rescue me now?

There are many forms of beauty.... But inner is the most revealing....
Not only of the soul... but of the heart....
If ur chest was opened.... what would it reveal to me?...
I'm afraid to see it....

Please tell me that my fears are unwarranted...
That ur love to me is true....
That ur love to me is unending....

Please... Tell me where u are my love?
Have ur heart forgotten me?...

Etiquette of combat,
the challenge is issued,
the gauntlet is thrown down.

The question of pistols
has never arisen,
at sword's points they must meet.

One falls in the meadow,
His foe runs for his life,
Is "honor" satisfied?

Well ... Thank U Brawnydog... :)

I misunderstood the whole thing... i thought we were allowed to create a thread to post more of our poems so we wouldn't over run anyone else's thread... I was only trying to be a consideration neighbor....

Most are more of a romantic nature.... and should be read one after another..... more about little pieces of my heart.... but... if I offend anyone.... i'll remove them...
That's totally not the reason that they're there.... :)
Been keeping an eye on me?... That's really sweet.... Thank U.... :)
