Poetry (1). A highly intelectual (and in some cases also romantic) way of explaining/describing an emotion a place a situation or a person.
Poetry (2). The worst possible form of torture that you can possibly put a living creature through.
Here is some poetry to show you some examples of the different definitions.
1. I wrote your name in the sky,
but the wind blew it away.
I wrote your name in the sand,
but the waves washed it away.
I wrote your name in my heart,
and forever it will stay. - Jessica Blade
2. As I opened the refrigator I felt all of my hair fall of.
It landed in a nice pile on the floor and hurriedly hid under the trash can.
As I took a deep breath I felt my toenails crack and my left hands fingers fell of.
I saw my nose turn black of gangrene and a second later it joined my fingers.
As I bended forward my heart stopped beating and the world fell into darkness.
It was then I understood that I should have gotten rid of the medwurst a long time ago. - Sebastian Viklund Åsberg
3. There's everything in this movie,
Everything that fits.
From the Meaning of Life in the universe,
To girls with great big tits.
We've got movie stars and foreign cars,
Explosions and the lot
Filmed as only we know how,
On the budget that we've got.
We spent a fortune on locations
And quite a bit on drink
And there's ever the odd philosophical joke,
Just to make you buggers think.
Yet some parts are as serious
And as deep as you could wish
But largely it's all tits and ass
And quite a bit of fish.
Other bits are fairly childish
And some are frankly rude
But at least we've got a lot of nice girls
All banging around in the nude.
So take your seats, enjoy yourselves
And let's just hope it's funny
Because it's not only done to make you laugh
But to make us lots of money.
So sit back and have a good time
With your boyfriend or your wife
Relax and just enjoy yourself
For this is the Meaning of Life - Eric Idle
4. The dead swans lay in the stagnant pool.
They lay. They rotted. They turned
Bits of flesh dropped off them from
Time to time.
And sank into the pool's mire.
They also smelt a great deal. - Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings
