Love is fantastic. So are poems. Unfortunately, it seems to be only on rare occasions when the two actually go together like peas and carrots, kool aid and sugar, Forrest and Jenny. So, this is what I have to say about love-- groan all you want but hey, it rhymes!
Can you do better, and by that I mean worse?
The Loveliness of Love
I love you more than bears love honey,
I love you more than hoes love money,
I love you more than fish love the sea,
I love you for eternity,
I love you more than big bird loves yellow,
Hey, do you want to be my fellow?
I love you more than dogs love poo,
I love you more than my left shoe,
Love me, love me, love me do,
Love me as much as I love you.
I love you more than a mosquito loves a face,
I love you more than an alien loves space,
I love you more than a cheater loves a hint,
I love you more than a belly button loves lint,
I love you more than an anteater loves ants,
Do you want to get in my pants?
I love you more than Brits love tea,
Love me dear, or let me be,
I love you more than you love me,
Why must this end in tragedy?
Please feel free to post your own most terrible love poem, a link to your rotten love apple, or just a few lines for our reading pleasure in the comments section. Let's have some fun with two things that are often taken way too seriously, love and poetry!
Note: Please only share stuff YOU have written. This should be a fun game, not an excuse to pick on anyone or make fun of their writing.

Adorable hub....the poem and the pictures. Voted up on EVERYTHING!
I'm yours til the Catskill Mountains have Kittens
I'm yours until the three little kittens find their old mittens
I'm yours until beauty becomes a beast
I'm yours until beer loses its yeast
Where I'm going with this I have no idea
So it's clear that I'm not always quite there...hmmm
Have a fun day!

My wicked love/hate. =)
I love sweet oranges. I do.
I go big lengths to eat them too.
The only problems that I have
I've got an allergy to that.
It doesn't stop me. No sir!
I drink them chilled,
I eat them raw,
I chomp them peeled,
In Danish pastries, overfilled.
What happens next, you wonder?
Oh, well, behold sweet darlings,
Here is thunder!
My stomach rumbles,
Loud and stuffy,
My skin is itchy,
Face is puffy!
All that consumed creations
Return in blessed retaliation…
You won't see me long around,
I'm sorry people, 'scuse me now,
I have important rendezvous,
(I've got appointment with loo.)
Oh well, again,
And I'll eat another one…

Cheers Kerri, and welcome to Hubpages!

Creative and naughty poem:) I enjoyed dreading it.

Once there was a girl from spain
she says love me if you have half a brain.
But her guy wasn't thinking right
and always went out alone at night.
and that's why she went insane.
Anaya M. Baker (author) from North Carolina on July 21, 2011:
Actually, Ghost, my last name isn't Baker :) Real last name is is an obscure, unpronounceable, Gaelic word involving a sound that could possibly hock up a good amount of phlem. In creating my internet alter ego, I thought it might be fun to run among the obscure masses of Tailors and Carpenters and Smiths and such.
I tend to avoid the forums these days, mostly because I recognize the all too easy potential to spend way more time there than would be humanly good for me. However, I have never actually made my way over to the sandpit. I just may have to do that. Word games make the world go round. Thanks:)
Ghost32 on July 21, 2011:
Actually, Anaya, I'm kind of slumped in my computer chair right now, not really standing...:)
Incidentally, when I'm not being a HubPages Ghost, my last name is Baker. First name's not Anaya, though.
In the Forums (if you haven't been there, just look up at the top of this page--there's a button), especially in "The Sandpit", Hubbers sometimes start silly threads just for the fun of it. Some of those threads involve games such as, "Add another sentence, but the first word has to be the last word of the previous sentence." Then another dude or dudette comes along, posts, "Sentence me to death, but deliver me from politicians!" #3 then goes, "Politicians rule! Peasants drool!" And on like that.
Or any simple rules you-the-thread-starter decide to post when you fire one of these up.
Anaya M. Baker (author) from North Carolina on July 21, 2011:
Ms. Sallly, I loved the end, "I guess its good we live where it snows...." Funny, but kind of true in a way :)
Ghost32, what is this forums game you speak of? I'm intruiged. I'm also pretty impressed, 7 wives and you're still standing?!
Thanks for the laughs! And keep 'em coming!
WillStarr from Phoenix, Arizona on July 21, 2011:
How did I miss this gem! Creative, naughty, hilarious, and absolute wonderful in an awful way.
Voted up and straight across.
Augustine A Zavala from Texas on July 20, 2011:
You had me at "hoes love money." They shoo do.
This is poem could be on a card, maybe one sold at Spencer's. Seriously, it's that good!
Ghost32 on July 20, 2011:
A silly Forums game called a Hub? Why not? By the numbers, though:
1. The title got my attention.
2. The lead-in left me wondering, "Who the heck are Forrest and Jenny"?
3. The photos are too cool for words.
4. The poem itself--fell out of my chair laughing, nearly squashed the cat (he's fast, thankfully), and--
"I love you more than hoes love money"
That alone gets a Vote Up and Across, every button in sight. Never mind the "in my pants" line, which is really the topper.
Huh. Me add one? Hm...I've got six ex-wives and one not-ex. Should be some base material there.
Number one I loved despite her growing size
But man, that girl could criticize
Number two was fine with a sweet young touch
Though she didn't really care for the bed that much
Number three was jealous, pure monster green
Craziest chick I think I've ever seen
Number four was hot, had me set on stun
Till she jinxed our deal, put me on the run
Yep, I loved them all, and ya know, I still do
They all had great butts--hey, I'm shallow, that's true
Number five was tall with electric blue eyes
We really fit together, she was just my size
Number six should have worked till I killed her boat
After that you know the marriage wasn't going to float
Number seven--that's Pam--with her copper red hair
We're hooked at the hip; we're one helluva pair
She loved hot loving till her body broke down
Now she's just quit smoking and I need to leave town
Ya know I gotta love her
'Cause I'm wore plumb down!
Ms.Sally on July 20, 2011:
Thanks for sharing this super cute hub! I love the pictures and your oh so terrible love poem. ;-) It brought a smile to my face. Here’s a little something I whipped up in hopes of returning the favor (although I may have wandered away from the theme).
Roses are red,
violets are blue,
I love ice cream,
but I love you too.
It’s just like a dream
when we’re together
no matter the day
and no matter the weather,
except on occasion
when it’s really hot.
Then to feel your touch,
I’d much rather not -
but when it’s cold
there’s nothing better
than to be in your arms,
and that old brown sweater.
I guess it’s good
we live where it snows
this romance blows.

Thanks epigramman! I thought it would be fun to have a collection of verses...and I had a lot of fun writing my own!
epigramman on July 20, 2011:
.....my tongue is not in my cheek when I say this but this is one of the best love poems I have ever read - because it's not pretentious, it's very clear and to the point and there's a sense of zany irreverence - and anyone who can put this hub next to a hub about the Holocaust is definitely a hero of mine and deserves my rapt attention as a follower ......
lake erie time 9:47pm
this is another hub by the way I will post to my Facebook page with a direct link back here so hopefully we can start a participation process here - you really deserve more readers and input on this one.
