Dear Stupid Blank Page

by Snazzy


Dear stupid blank page,

why must you stare?

Waiting for some inspiration

that's not even there?

~

Dear stupid blank page,

why are you so cruel?

Laughing at me so,

and saying I'm a fool?

~

Dear stupid blank page,

why don't you care?

About a poor idea-less child,

who's pulling out her hair?

~

Dear stupid blank page,

why must you be so plain?

No lovely words or phrases,

don't you know you're a pain?

~

Dear stupid blank page,

I'm ready to sue.

Because stupid blank page,

I really hate you.

Hi, Snazzy!

Liberty500 is here to drop off a review for you! :D

You kinda made my job really hard. This is a fabulous poem! It had zero spelling mistakes, zero grammar mistakes, and zero things that bugged me! I really love this poem. You just made my day! Now, I know someone else who I can actually relate to! This is so good! Okay, I gotta stop with the complimenting, it's probably getting annoying. XD

Well, you also did really good with the rhyming. And, the title is just so perfect that it's TOO perfect. I'm gonna go read some more of your poems. :)

Keep on writing!

wow, I really needed to read this actually, it made me laugh a little. I've been going through some writers block and this poem really brightened me up. The last line too, that's how it always feels when the page offers no help to the blockage. I love how you talk about the plainness of the page too, nice poem.

I loved it! :D

You superbly described those days without inspiration and that bastard blank page that just keeps staring at you.
I also loved those rhymes and humorous repetition of ''Dear stupid blank page''.

Keep up the good work! :)

Hey snazzypencil. This poem really made me laugh. Every writer knows the struggle of staring at a blank page. A couple things: I'd change idea-less child in the third stanza to clueless child, as it seems to flow better. And in the fourth stanza, end of the third line, I think that's dash would be more appropriate there because it provides a stronger break. Those are just my opinions. I really enjoyed this poem!

First I wanted to say sorry for my stupid mistake of posting a review with nothing on it.
Okay about the poem. hahahahahahahahahahaa........I never thought anyone could write about a blank page. You are no idea-less child. You're awesome. IT was a lovely cute poem that really brings out the worst in a blank page. I used to feel pity for a blank page but now it pure revenge.This is pretty easy to read and it's great.

It's alright. :D Thanks for the review! :)

Hello!

Haha this was very humorous. I especially like the part when you wrote:

"Dear stupid blank page,
why don't you care?
About a poor idea-less child,
who's pulling out her hair?"

I found it to be quit amusing because I often think this when I am writing(I also pull out my hair). Overall, Really enjoyed this piece. Keep writing!

I loved this. It's a very relatable poem, because I'm pretty sure every writer has experienced this at some point. The rhyme scheme was simply and easy to follow, and it had a nice, quick rhythm to it. The repetition of "Dear stupid blank page" is probably my favorite part. I sit and stare at paper while saying that all the time. Overall a good piece.

This was so freaking awesome.
The flow of your verses (?) was really good, and the way that you described writer's block was really interesting. We can all relate to writer's block eh? Do you ever get the feel that you can only write if there is a significant thing that happens in your life? Only when you are heartbroken and sad, or elated. I feel the best works come out of pain, what about you?




Snazzy says...


Yes, or boredom. ;) :D Thanks! :D

Hello there

You have certainly did a wonderful work here. The poem is relatable to every one who write! The entire poem is very nicely written.

(Um.. what to say more, what to say more, what to say more!)

Oh yes!

I have got terrible fun reading this. It rhymes! Some facts i have loved the most.

a) The way you have used "Dear stupid blank page" repeatedly.
b) Punctuation using.
c) Easy to read!
d) No use of extraordinarily hard words >_<

Haha. That's all. No, that's not all. Wait.

This "Four" I have loved bit more!

"Dear stupid blank page,

I'm ready to sue.

Because stupid blank page,

I really hate you."

Overall, totally awesome! Keep writing wonderful stuff like this! ^_^

P.S. I too hate blank pages.
Oh blank page, you nasty dinosaur!

Hello SnazzyPencil. What a fun and relatable(;_;) poem you've made! :)

I love it overall, but my favorite part would be:

Dear stupid blank page,
why must you stare?
Waiting for some inspiration
that's not even there?

Seriously, this is what I think most of the time when I sit in front of blank pages. Like some kind of instinct, I force myself to write something smart, amusing, and inspirational. When it doesn't have to be like that, right? We can write whatever we want, but we often push ourselves to become impressive. This part of the poem expressed it so well, and I loved it! :D

Also, this may seem something trivial, but I really liked how you used simple easy words. With poems, lots of people (including me T^T) try to use fancy and expressive words to improve their writings. Ironic enough, simple and less expressive words express more, don't they? Also, the simple words made the rhymes land stronger, and I liked that too.

I wouldn't say there's anything to change in the poem... But I did wish that the last verse kept up with the rhythm of the whole poem. Was it on purpose to make it simple and put the rhythm to the stop? I'm not saying it's bad, but merely asking since I'm really curious. I'd like to know more about writing poems. :)

Loved it, and I hope I can see more of these beauties(poems xD) come out from you. :D

- Verdigris




Snazzy says...


:D (Is it bad that I just spent about five whole minutes trying to type a smiley? I finally realized caps lock was on... :D ) I have read some that have stopped rhythms on purpose, to try and make it funny, but I didn't...and I did at the same time. :D At first I didn't mean to, but after I did, I sort of like it...so...yeah. :D Anyway, thanks for the review! :D

Omigosh, this thing had me laughing the whole way through! :D Yet all the while I could feel your frustration and can seriously relate! (My family has rural internet and it is simply awful and so half of my stuff doesn't save sometimes and I can never rewrite it the same)

I think on of my favoritist parts of this was "About a poor idea-less child,/who's pulling out her hair?" So relatable! Lol!!

I think "cruel" and "fool" while they don't have the same type of spelling signatures, rhyme just fine. In fact, I would probably be staring at a blank page for awhile before I came up with something like that. I thought it was very creative.

The only thing I would change is on the very last line and I would change it from "I hate you" to "I really hate you" because the syllables just seem to add up better and second, I really do hate blank pages.

Okay, thanks for the review! :D :D :D :D (stupid, dirty, ugly, terrifying, disgusting, blank pages... :D )

I love this poem, because it is so easy to relate to. I also like the sense of irony that in this case, the writer's block became the inspiration for the poem.

Hi Snazzy! Thanks for reviewing my poem, even though you haven't in a while. The subject for the poem was very real and practical. The typical writer's block that everyone gets once in a while. I easily related to this poem and it was a good read.
\My favorite Line don't you know you're a pain?

Favorite Verse
Dear stupid blank page,

why must you be so plain?

No lovely words or phrases,

don't you know you're a pain?

I really love the rhyme and how the poem flows.

Thanks! :D :D :D

Hey, Snazzy! I saw this on the poetry page and couldn't resist reading it. So firstly, good job with the title.

The subject you based your poem on was very realistic and quite funny as well. This made your poem easy to relate to and fun to read.

The repetition used in your poem also made it really nice to read aloud. Your rhyming pattern was also very good- it flowed well and didn't sound forced at all.

Next, here is my favourite stanza:

"Dear stupid blank page,
why must you be so plain?
No lovely words or phrases,
don't you know you're a pain?"

For some reason that I myself don't know, I liked to read this stanza aloud- it just sounded good to me.

However, there is just this one little thing that I felt was out of place. Maybe it is just my opinion but just check it out. All the last words of line 2 and 4 of each stanza rhyme in your poem but "cruel" and "fool"? I did not quite like the sound of it.

A very well written poem- you really have done a great job.

- Anshira.




Snazzy says...


Yes, I must find a word that rhymes better with cruel... :D Thank you! :D :)

This is funny but true. This is what describes me opening my Microsoft Word but ends up wasting an hour about thinking what to write, not even the title is there.

Who knew you could write something about something that you couldn't write about? Wait that was confusing, but you get the irony right?

Although the rhymes and syllables seemed free, it's still music to my ears, the poem flowed quite gently and the idea made sense.




Snazzy says...


I know right! :D :D Thanks! :)

Sunset here for a review!
Give yourself a pat on the back, Snazzy! This is clearly a wonderful peice of work! Though I have nothing to edit in this poem, I would like to tell you how much I like it. Which.. You probably now know.
Anyways, you way of ending it really surprised me. I thought the person was going to continue asking questions, but the they totally ended it! I think that's a great way of ending it and a great strategy. Hope to expect that from you again.
Another thing I really love was the ryhme and rythm you put to life in this. It has a beat that you get really used to, and the ryhme goes with it. Many poems here don't have rhyme in it- which is ok-but I really like the poems with ryhmes in it.
In the second stanza,

Dear stupid blank page,
why are you so cruel?
Laughing at me so,
and saying I'm a fool?

Here is the only thing that really "caught my eye" (in a not-so-good sort of way). I don't know if it's just me, but "cruel," and "fool," don't rhyme the best. I get that it was probably the best way to do it because it was the only two words that make sense, but I know from you your rhyming is a lot better.
For overall, though, I'm definetly going to "heart" this. It makes me smile and cheers me up, for some reason. Oh, and great job, making the spotlight! This poem surely deserves it!
~Sunset101




Snazzy says...


Thanks! :D Yes, I was having a hard time finding a word to rhyme with cruel. It's a mean word to me...almost rhymes with absolutely nothing. (not rhymes with those words, I mean it doesn't really rhyme with much... :D ) Such a mean word...like orange. ;) Anyway, thanks for the review! :D :D



BlueSunset says...


No problem, it was my pleasure. I agree too. Some words can just be so stubborn. :)

Tigerlilly here to review!

This is incredibly funny! How many times, as writers, do we do this? Stare at a blank page while it sits there, taunting us with ideas? Who knows! I must say this is just amazing, and I love the repetition you used in it. Quite frankly, this sums up the life of a writer. I cant find all that much to critique about it, because its just a beautiful piece of work, but please keep writing! This is truly hilarious and I know many people can relate. I look forward to reading more of your works! :)

This is lovely and just made my day, and the entire time I was reading this I had the mental picture of a child sitting in a school desk looking down at a page in a note book saying I hate you the entire time. well enough with my rambling. This is very cute and I do hope you keep on writing this is truly lovely.

That's sooooo funny!!! I read it aloud to my sister, and she almost fell off of her chair laughing. You better be careful with those poems, they could cause some major fatalities. Just KIDDING! Anyways, I've been rambling on too long. Good job, and I really mean it. Also, good luck! May you find a four-leaf clover today. (I'm Irish <3 <3)

Snazzy says...


:D Thank you! :D :D Tell your sister to be careful when she falls out of chairs! ;) Thanks again! :)

I told her. She continued laughing. <3 <3 <3
