A short story or mere gathering of words written with feeling, often foreshadowing an underlying theme or emotion.Poems do NOT require any specific punctuation or format.Can be used to convey a certain mood to the reader, making it as if the reader is experiencing the written text. Poems also normally have strong emotional impact on those who gratefully understand good literature.
Positive poem:
I look at the world gratefully
Yes our world.
The one others think of as dull
I see as pure beauty.
From the squirrel on the ground
To the lone drifting cloud.
Beautiful each and every thing
In its own unique way

Negative poem:
Why am I here?
Why must I suffer?
What have I done
To deserve being

Left here?


In a sea of people
So many people
Careless people.
Was it me?
Is it my fault?
Have I done something

Have I forgotten
A past deed undone?
Who knows.
But for now I am stuck.
In this world.
Why am I here?

Psychotic poem:
What's this?
A bug.
A small little thing.
No importance?
No purpose?
How do we know this bug is not
The almighty?
How do we know that all that is
Anything in this world
Isn't just a figment
Of this bugs
We know not of where

We came from.
We can only hypothesize.
Be gone small bug.
For if I take your life
Who knows what could happen
To the world?
Be gone bug.
Be gone.

A group of words phrazed together to create a peice of writing. Generally, it is short, but a poem can be anything that shows something--a feeling...a sound...a color...a thought... Most of them rhyme, but some don't. People sometimes have poetry slams, in which people read these poems aloud. People argue over what can be defined as a poem. Can "Hello, my name is nono, what's yours?" be considered as a poem? Nobody knows. I think it can.

The saddest thing I see—
People who walk, not knowing where they are
Wanderers, dropped on this earth by mistake
Empty eyes, like pebbles, dropped in a lake.
They see only images
A dim outline in the fog of appearance.
Like words that you’ve said so many times they have no meaning
These people are just clones
With shadows of who they could have been.
Of whom they are not.

Is there a cure for those who do not care?
Is there a way to save all of the lonely people of this world who don’t know who they are?
Is there a way to help the people who don’t know they need it?
The cure?
The cure is love.

*A thing that teens use to vent. Written by unusually gifted people, nerds, goths, emos (although their poetry most always sucks), and of course, those poor, pathetic souls that think they have absolutely nothing to live for.

*Written in the form of whatever you feel like
How can I give an example of a poem? Okay...I'll try. Ahem.

I like poems.
They rule.
This poem sux ass.
But I'm really cool!

tee hee hee!
