    or would the only type of poem that can be considered as music be a ballad? @iluvreading bc i wouldnt suggest a haiku be turned into a song lol

    no, songs have a melody and harmony and counter melody and such. Words are just something to say while you sing the melody. It would be different if people were posting lyrics from their own original songs, but it's straight poetry which is literature not music. Music: The art or science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion. I don't see poetry mentioned in there. Do you? Yes, I suppose music contains poetry in a way, but poetry does not contain music.

    ok, great, if you a melody to go with your lyrics then I think that's fine to post them. however, I would ask that you also post the actual. Strictly poetry without music is literature and should be posted in the literature section. I don't understand how anybody disagrees with that.

    noise is noise. not as in garbage. its noise how would you describe it besides sound? it would be noise. Im just saying that music with no lyrics is just noise or sound. but music with lyrics has more meaning more soul.

    Yes they are because what are ballads any poem written in similar style. Any light, simple song, especially one of sentimental or romantic character, having two or more stanzas all sung to the same melody.

    Actually, if you think about. You don't even need words at all. It's just been a nice addition to music through the years, but poetry is not required to write a song.

    At least write songs to go with them then. And then you can post the song and the lyrics and it would be applicable to the music section.

    poetry is literature. it would be music if you added a melody.
