people often claim that I think too much, to which I reply if you thought half as much as I did you might not be stupid. so I say to you dear reader or if I am lucky readers, when it comes to people keep your expectations low and trust no one.

not sure who said this "it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than it is to speak and remove all doubt"

or this"never argue with an idiot, he will drag you down to his level and beat you senseless with his experience"

I find it best to speak in generalities. for example: I generally don't jump off cliffs without a parachute. this leaves wiggle room which is very important when dealing with devils or gods.

not sure who said this either "those that fear the darkness have never seen what the light can do"

I have never eaten a live baby.....see that's funny because you have to cook them first lolololol

nothing is worse than being stagnant. embrace chaos like you would moderation.

 just how weird am I. I had a dream where I went to a park and Charlie sheen was doing stand up for a small group of people sitting on some bleachers. and this is the joke I here him tell. "so you have people that say they are women trapped in a mans body. so what happens when two people that are women trapped in a mans body get together. there not gay if they are women are they lesbiens if they have the wrong piping. I propose we call people in this situation gaybiens." no one is the crowd laughed and he tapped his microphone saying is this thing on

    Good evening my dear friend Nathan. For me I especially find difficulty in writing poems which the greatest, professional, true and born poets are inclined or adept to write like free verses, epic and other long forms of poems which they skillfully and spontaneously write. I wish I'm so good on these forms.Thank you so much. love lots, Leonora

    I find a sonnet very hard..actually one of the more beautiful but most difficult.I never managed to write a sonnet..Hope i ll get to it in the future.. Sestina and Villanelle even harder then..Nathan.

    And for a longer form a strict Ballade with 3 stanzas of 8 lines and one stanza of 4 lines (28 total) with a rhyme scheme of ababbcbC (three times) and an envoy of 4 lines bcbC with the large C being a repeated line. Also done in strict iambic tetrameter or pentameter.

    Hi Nate, Because of the difficulty most have with meter I think for a short form Sapphic Stanza-The Sapphic Stanza is made up of three unrhymed lines of eleven syllables and one of five. Each line consists of two trochees, one dactyl and two trochees. This line is termed a Sapphic. The (fourth) last line consists of one dactyl and one trochee, and is termed an Adonic.

    There is something called a CROWN sonnet? That could be hard for someone who does not even write regular sonnets. Just off the top of my head, I 've always found sestinas a bit difficult, but mostly I just don't like to read them. So to write one that keeps a person's interest could be a great challenge! I know there are other forms, so If I think of more, I'll let you know!
