  1. Old fart speaking………..
    The title of your poem does not do justice to the beauty of it. I think it sells you short as a writer.
    Like I said though, that is just an old fart’s opinion!πŸ™‚

    1. Haha!! No problem at all. All opinions are welcome here my friend – old farts and all! πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

      I think when I came up with this title I was just intrigued by how changing the emphasis and tone of words can change their meaning.

      Fuck Boys (apart from the modern term of a ‘fuck boy’ being someone who is more interested in casual sex as opposed to meaningful relationships) can be interpreted in a few different ways depending on the emphasis used.

      Fuck Boys – a poem written about heartbreak after a break up with a man using the definition above.

      Fuck Boys – a poem written about heartache after a painful break up where a future with any and all men is now off the table.

      Fuck Boys – a poem written about heartache after a painful break up with a man so, perhaps, next time the author may try a relationship with a woman instead.

      Fuck Boys – a poem written about heartache after a painful break up so the author is now going to embark on a string of casual encounters instead of a meaningful relationship and risk getting hurt again.

      Of course, I know what you mean about the stark contrast in tone between the title the poem – thank you for your kind comments on that by the way. But the devil in me can’t help but play around with juxtaposition! 😁

      Plus, you know me and my love of profanity my friend – I just could resist!

      The fact that I’ve managed to mention the word ‘fuck’ seven times now tells you everything you need to know!!

      1. Wow. Thank you so much for this comprehensive reply. Now you’ve explained it (which you didn’t need to do) I understand what a clever title this actually was. Sorry I put my foot in it, I’ll think carefully before I open my big gob next time!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

        1. Honestly, there’s no need to apologise at all my friend!! You didn’t put your foot anywhere!! 😁

          I only gave such a comprehensive reply as, genuinely, I’m not even sure which one I meant and I wrote the damn thing! 🀣🀣

          One of the things I love most about WordPress is seeing what other skilled and talented writers – such as yourself – think about what I write and chatting about it sometimes too! πŸ‘

          I have the thickest of skins so you could never offend me. Please, please comment away on my posts whenever you like and don’t worry about that!!
