Used as a euphemism for Sex. Sexy sexy sex. Particularly between Arthur and Merlin. Term is used primarily as an excuse when others catch Merlin and Arthur in the act. Rarely works as everyone knows exactly what "poetry" Merlin is teaching Arthur.
Gwaine : Hey Leon, have you seen Merlin?

Leon : Yes. He was with Arthur. In the corridors. Alone.

Gwaine : What was their excuse this time?

Leon : Poetry.

Gwaine : They aren't fooling anyone.

A scramble of words that may or may not make sense to the reader, but always means something to someone.
Poetry isn't excluded to any genre of emotions or audience ages.

FIRE AND ICE BY ROBERT FROST
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if I had to perish twice.
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.


WARNING BY SHEL SILVERSTEIN
Inside everybody's nose
There lives a sharp-toothed snail.
So if you stick your finger in,
He bite off your nail.
Stick it farther up inside,
And he might bite your ring off.
Stick it all the way, and he
May bite the whole darn thing off.

>> Good Poetry
Indirectly stating what you mean or directly stating something that parallels what you really mean. Adding depth and making the reader use their wit through parallels in indirect examples allows for powerful connections and is characterized as poetic writing. Commonly created by patience in organization and witty connections.

>> Cliche Poetry
Often misused and abuse by depressed teen girls (see self proclaimed genius) as they vent a conversation of themselves talking to about or to something that they have relationship problems with. They address the thing they have emotional conflicts with as "you", spoon feed their emotions, add some rhetorical questions, repetition, sometimes end rhyme, and call it a poem. (see venting tool) Common themes are, you don't know me, why are you so mean, definitions of; love, death, innocense, etc., you'll cry when I die, and you'll never understand me.
1. Listen to my venti...poetry ^^ I wrote it in 20 seconds, amn't I a genius!?
2. You goth, go write your poetry. Don't sit at our table.
3. That was great poetry! It really said many things between the lines and was very intelligently organized.

A form of art that uses language. Poets use the beauty of a language and its words to create a feeling or convey a message to the reader, whether the wording is soft, sweet, sunny, and a lovely walk through a meadow... or clotted, ugly, grungy, and conjures up images of a slum. Just like artists use images and colors to create a mood or message, poets use words to do the same thing.

Poetry has been around for over 5,00 years and it's still young, vibrant, and growing. Poetry might even go further into the past, since most people memorized poetry and passed it on orally; 5,000-year-old poems from Mesopotamia could have already been old when they were written.

The practice of memorizing poetery and passing it on by word of mouth is pretty much gone.

Humans change, but maybe their nature doesn't change very much; practically everything that could be said through poetry has already been said, often many times, albeit in different ways. Poets must be original and avoid any cliché if they want to look competent.

She is one of the most independent and quiet people you’ll ever meet. She’s shy and keeps her thoughts to herself at first but once you get to know her she’s amazing, bright, and very loyal when she wants something she gets it, but most of the time she over thinks things and she usually hesitates in the moment, She smart, talented, when she tells you something she really means it she’s kind hearted and selfless, very very dramatic. But don’t let her shyness and kind heart Fool you she can be very bitchy at times, when she gets mad it takes her some time to get over the situation.
Guy 1: Damn why is Poetry so shy?
Guy 2: You have to get to know her, and once you do she’s the best person ever

Guy 2: whoever dates her they’re so lucky

1. (noun) A feeling or an idea. A common misconseption is that poetry has to use big, complicated words and only written by the "highly classed, intelligent people" when the truth is that it may not use words at all. Poetry could be in the view out your window and does not have to be spoken or written to BE and/or to be real.


Poetry is used in songs, musicians are NOT always highly intelligent or highly classed people.
