Lipstick, Cherry red kisses lie Smothered by, Smeared, Disgracefully rouged over Velveteen Lips . . . She whispers ' Oh Dear Me . . . ' As another moral boundary slips. Well then . . . Might as well just Rub me up buttercup Play to the tune Of fingertips tracing Their delicate way To more playful places Wearing 'Dirty' expressions Upon both out faces As I begin to lose myself Within this space we occupy Known more commonly as Lust The Instance where need becomes must . . ?

I like the poem very much - good luck with setting it out better. (I too copy and paste from a word document and have had no problems.)

My sister has had the same problem - I think she had to edit it all once it was up - she managed to resolve it one way or another but it took her time.

Like Graham, I always cut and paste from word. I've never had a problem with that.

I like your poem too. It's hard to read properly at the moment with the structure not being right. I like the way you have used rhyme but not become a slave to it - the mixture works well. I think you should make the effort to set it out right, one way or another.

Hi Dominic - I was just about to reply to your message to me about this but now I see that all I can think of is what other kind folk have already suggested. I think some people have had this prob if they try and download from a mobile phone but it sounds like yu are doing everything "right". I'll ask around a bit more. When you have written the poem in the box does it look OK to you at that stage?

Try writing it as a word document and then cut and paste it.

Not sure about the line alignment but have you tried clicking on the left align button or centre align because(maybe it's automatically on 'justify' ) which is the 4th button of the 4 align buttons on the bottom left of the buttons above the typing area box?
Elsewise all I can think of is editing it once you have blogged it. This may be OK with a short poem but would be tiring with a blockbuster.

I like 'Rouge' especially the 'Oh dear me...'
Just one query - why have you put 'smothered by' but not said by what? - rather leaves one hanging. XX
