[Poem] Not Sure Of A Title
Posted 01 April 2012 - 02:31 PM
Who hid his face or so it seemed
Who followed me through ancient towns
Who walked by me and also ‘round
Thrice circled, I was by you
Although you hid your face I knew
I knew one day you would find me
And this you did so unexpectedly
My vampire, my love I now know too
These dreams, for years i've had were you
And all this time i’m sure you knew
But you had chosen to bide your time
Knowing one day we’d meet online
Me unto you and you unto me
In memories that span centuries
And so now the dreams continue
Old worlds and new with me, with you
Bound we are by soul and heart
‘Ever we go, we’ll never part
By ancient love and ancient law,
we are forever entwined with awe

Plagiarising work is against the rules.

Or the fact that the OP is a dude and the original creator of this poem is called 'gothchick', but, less likely things have happened which is why they got a day to come up with believable proof.
The solid proof would be OP's lack of creativity to make a title, or originality otherwise.

What also confuses me, like, really confuses me is this: You have to pay to register something as copyright yourself, it's about $35-50 according to the US law (which, by your flag, I'm assuming you're from). You paid this filing fee for a poem you wrote four years ago, which you don't seem to even have bothered to think up of a title for?
Few more things: I'm not sure how the support system for that website worked in '09, but now they don't feel the need to post their address and phone number at the end of every email, and why would you feel the need to give your contact number to someone who already has a means to contact you (IE, your email address is now known to them to contact you back on). Again, assuming this work is yours, I found no evidence from my searches that proved you ever published this poem originally. It has been posted a few times on other forums and art related sites, but they all were posted after the link I showed you, and with the same name "Vampire". Did you report these other sites too? If not, why not? You reported the other site.
The reason I ask all this is because I want to know the facts, clearly there's some airtight piece of proof I can't argue against, like a screenshot of this supposed email you sent (and seem to still have saved in your inbox 3 years down the line). If you're telling the truth, though, I admire your vigilance in protecting your poem from being stolen and resubmitted, because you found your poem which you originally wrote posted by some darned faker just a day after it was submitted by them! Hats off to you, if someone stole something I copyrighted, it would be months (if ever) before I found out about it. A whole day and you caught them out, kudos to you, sir!

I don't love to destroy things. I'm more of a fan of preserving the rightful owners of artwork and poetry, don't think I'm picking on you in particular because I make sure every thread that comes through here gets checked into for plagiarism. If I find a poem that has been posted here to have been posted somewhere else, I will bring it up regardless of who you are.
I do thank you Steve for removing it and I won't be posting another poem here either way. I don't need people that love to try to destroy things just to get their kicks off stressing me out over something that is very simple. Once again thank you for removing it, it's much appreciated and btw answer my pm xD
I base my accusations on fact and common sense. The only facts I know for certain are
1. This thread was posted in 2012
2. You are a male
3. This poem has been posted a few times on separate boards, under completely different aliases, the earliest of which is presumably posted by a girl, in 2009.
Your email is suspicious too. It was supposedly sent a day after the poem I linked you to was posted originally, which, unless you have an account on that particular site and visited it frequently enough to scour the site daily for new works, seems very unlikely to have happened. Regardless, the odds of you being the original publisher of this poem are very low, considering all the facts. If, however, you do come up with some form of solid proof that this poem is actually yours, fair enough, I'm wrong and I'll apologise for grilling you. Until then, though, I'm locking this thread and you will be warned for plagiarism.
One last thing - $35 x 70 = $2,450. That's a lot of disposable income for hobbyist poetry copyrighting.
