No, I hate poems that don't rhyme, I believe it can't truly be a poem unless it rhymes, I find rhymes to be beautiful.
I'm not trying to be mean btw, just saying my opinion.
I've tried before, mine were mediocre. I love reading ones though, especially emotional ones with meaning, just like the one you have here. Except with rhymes.
I don't just write love poems... heck most of mine are about other stuff!
I Stand You There
I stand you there
In a place I need you
Stand so still
And so tall
Feel so rigid
Spread your legs
Hold right there
Stand for me
Locked in place
Stay so steady
Are you ready
What would I do
If not for you
My trusted friend
My steady companion
My one and only
I think I read this poem or episode similar to this..good poetry..words if rhymed and melodious would have got you an A..but then..look at the path getting transformed into a road....why do EP has love poetry more than on roads and highway..hmmmm because not evry highway was a path....:))
I love the story but I'm a philistine. I prefer poems that rhyme.
I personally do not like this poem.
And why do people at EP write only love poems? Well I don't think that's true.
And it's even arguable if the stuff you find at EP could be called poetry.
But that's just my opinion : )
Because they are anxious self-conscious teenagers.
