Everything is cliché these days

Everything is cliché these days

Nothing can be true

Falling in love is cliché these days

Saying I love you


Nothing is not cliché these days

Everything is fake

Romantic days are cliché these days

Boat trip on the lake


Every emotion is cliché these days

Noting observations

Trusting is cliché these days

Secret conversations


No lie is not cliché these days

Every fake strained smile

Fearing is cliché these days

When you’re busy for a while


Every tale is cliché these days

Nothing ever stays

Broken hearts are cliché these days

Going our separate ways


Surprises will surprise these days

Flowers near my door

People can surprise these days

A letter on my floor


“Love can be cliché these days

 Trusting is an issue

 Ever after is cliché these days

Saying I love you”


Marriage is cliché these days

Writing invitations

Choosing which day you want

In the Spring Vacations


Smiling is cliché these days

Flying without wings

Diamonds are cliché these days

Magic wedding rigs

 So basically what happened is, the girl/ boy (you're choice who it is...) fell in love, then she/ he started getting suspicious about his/ her partner...but at the end it turned out he/ she (the partner) was planning a marriage.

Everything is cliche these days. We've lived too long to make anything not cliche. People make it seem as if nothing can be original because everything is cliche- but its not. 

The only thing that is cliche is our perception on things, somehow even though we have changed so much in looks and technology- we (sadly) have the same stereotypical, thoughts at the back of our mind. No matter what, the majority of us constantly judje people. 

I write a wide range of poetry and I still haven't found out my main style. I write anything that comes to my head which is why there are hardly any similarities in my poems. Each one is different...
Sorry for the inactive...ness (that's not a word I don't think) but my Internet has grown its own mind and decides itself when it does or doesn't want to work. :/

Hope you like it!

I have sat and thought about this quite often and of course I'm not the only one :P but anywho I really like this. I would say it's a decent poem and the content is relatable ^U^ thanks for sharing bruh

Haha, it's so true. Like everything becomes a cliche. But I guess that's just because, like you say, humans lived for so long and it seems that almost everything already was there once. But I also think that doesn't mean we can't turn an old idea into something with a new original touch that makes it unique. Or something like that xD

Very good write, my only question - is it meant to be "rigs" at the end, or rings?

Just so as you know, this is on the second page of the 24 hour popular filter. ^^

While it can be frustrating for you to not have found your own style, I think that can certainly be a positive thing- you will still continue to search for new ways to express yourself in poetry, and won't box yourself into the same style. Well, I think so, anywho.

Personally, I find it fun to play with clichés- as people expect it to be 'another' x, y or z, and because of this expectation, they are blind to other outcomes, letting you surprise them more when you conclude it differently. In that way, you also encourage people to be more open, and not expect everything to be a cliché. 

This piece really should get more attention, though. Very thoughtful and beautiful- it's certainly refreshing to find some rhyming poetry on the popular filter, too, for that matter. xD

Thanks for telling me that it was on the second page of the 24 hours popular filter! I'm happy to know that :>

I guess (in a way) it is good that I still haven't found my own style, it might possibly widen my readers or audience, I don't think that I would be able to stick to one style even if I wanted to, even if I tried to. 

Personally, I don´t mind cliches that much. What matters is how you plan out your cliche...and cliches are very confusing. A few years before it was cliche for girl in the movie to be girly, now it is cliche for people not to do the cliche and make the girl in the movie a hard core tomboy. Similarly, it is, or rather used to be cliche for girls to love the colour pink, now it is cliche for girls not to like pink. (Get it?) So cliches are changing regularly. 

Before I write a whole essay on that, thanks for the comment! It really made my day ;D This wasn't one of my best works (in my opinion) but thanks again.

Well, I think it's a good thing, anywho- and it's a brilliant way to broaden your horisons and gander some more knowledge regarding your field. ^^

Yeah- I agree entirely- they sort of go in and out of fashion, so to speak. I really do wish they would stop exaggerating personalities in movies so much, though- and always give said personality the outfit and measurements to match. Because we won't understand that he likes computers if he doesn't have an eye deficiency, will we? I guess it's nice for things to be so liquid in that way, though. If they were always the same people would get terribly bored. xD

Well, I shall have to remember to look at some of your other works, then. Do you have a particular piece that is your favourite?
And thankyou for sharing your work, and composing a thoughtful reply to my lengthy ramble. xD

Me personally, I don´t mind clichés that much. What matters to me is how well you can make the story you´re trying to tell and how you do it. Clichés are all fine and dandy as long as they´re thought out well enough and to make sure it´s not uncalled for and that there really is a reason for them to be there in the first place.

That´s probably the reason for why movies like "How to train your dragon" is so loved by so many. Even though the story has been done to death, the way it was told and the pacing is what sold it for a lot of people, myself included.

Family movie cliches are an exceptation I guess, I love movies like 'How to train your Dragon' and 'Pirates of The Caribbean' 
I just don't like how people think that everything is cliche these days" 
Thanks for taking the time to write this comment :>
