I don't like the word "Sad" what about "Melancholy"?

sad should be in a diff. category, because sad suggests respect and contemplation. Dark suggests horror and gore...

admin said:Many categories have been suggested over the years, and like this one, often they are good ideas. However, I'm not planning any changes to the categories at the moment as there's a much bigger project in the pipeline related to keyword tagging poems.

Also, there's a problem in that most people post poems in order for them to be read. People may post to a "sad" category, but would people seek that category out to read from?


Good point but I think people would wanna read from a sad category.. let's face it, most of us have a very dark and or sad side. Sometimes reading sad poetry allows a reader in a mood to be able to relate..

I concur with Zazzles. My writing strength is at its peak when I experience sad moments and would definitely love to express those moments in such a category.

I agree that "sad" is a little off putting.  I personally would not want to click on it. A better word for a good idea. Yes

I think junk food should be cut out and stores should get more healthy things so people can't gain weight.....

I believe the 'dark' category encompasses this well enough. But that's just my 2 cents :p

There should be. I have a lot of sad drug-related poetry to share.

In response to that question I do beleive many would seek out the funny catagory.

If you click the "Random Poems" on the bottom right of the page there is the " Random Poems" link, you will find many poems based on popular searches, including sad poems or depressing poems.

Anyway i think, like many said, a sad poem doesn't really fit the dark poem section.
