Of course I didn't write this poetry...but isn't beautiful?!

I hate the way you talk to me
and the way you cut your hair
i hate the way you drive my car
i hate it when u stare
I hate your big dumb combat boots
and the way you read my mind
I hate you so much it makes me sick
It even makes me rhyme
I hate the way your always right
I hate it when you lie
I hate it when you make me laugh even worse when you make me cry
I hate it when your not around
and the fact that you didn't call
but mostly i hate the way i don't hate you
not even close
not even a little bit
not even at all
Yes it it.
I hate it when it goes so slow.
thanks maj
"I hate when it goes so slow"... is this part from the poem?

Hey teenager witch

I remember that film. 10 things I hate about you. I don't remember the name of the actress who reads out the poem, but she's in the Bourne Identity (plays FBI) and she's really good – especially at being *** off at her sister.
Reading your post made me think of the first time I saw The Outsiders, (written by S.E.Hinton and filmed by Francis Ford Coppola). I was 13 and not used to poetry. But there was a poem in there written by Robert Frost:

Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold
Her earliest leaf's a flower
But only so an hour
Then leaf subsides to leaf
As Eden sank to grief
As dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay

It's about coming of age I suppose, but every time I remember it, I think of Matt Dillon crawling down the road, calling out to his friend, after the police have shot him.
It's the only poem I know off by heart.
Hope you like it.


I have to say the movie the outsiders has always been one of my all time favorites. I read it in highschool. Boy that seems like a long time ago. : ) I now have the movie. But that poem was something that I held on to, well I still do. A friend of mine barrowed me a the book and from then on we both use to write "stay gold" on all of our notes we passed back and forth at school. I haven't thought of him in ages! It's funny the things you hold on to. I still write "stay gold" in alot of my letters and cards, referring back to what the poem said to me. Thanks for the flash back and the smiles today! Have a great day!

Sorry for the walk down memory lane, bad habit of mine : )

Yeah, I'd forgotten about the 'Stay Gold' thing. I'm glad it reminded you of your friend from long ago.
It was important to me too, like a talisman or spell to ward off bad stuff.
I can't believe that at some point I left it behind me. Thanks for reminding me and if you don't mind, I think I might pick it up again.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Trent , Trystwithmyheart thank for your reply
It is realy very nice poem Trent.
I am happy to remember you about all that beautifull memories.

I don't hate you, but I hate that I have grown to be too fond of you to the point that I am willing to forgive everything you did.
