Poetry Dedicated to Leonardo DiCaprio

The Leonardo DiCaprio Poetry Site This is a poetry site totally dedicated to the talented actor Leonardo DiCaprio / Without whom / Our lives would be empty of all inspiration. There would be no work of art for us to gaze at / No timeless melody to listen to.

Some of it's quite sincere: Must. Not. Heh. Snicker. . .

The Day I Fell in Love with Leo: It was at that moment that I [...] was struck by Cupid’s arrow. It was like being hit in the chest by a 10 ton truck. My breath was trapped in my lungs, I couldn’t breathe, my heart was hammering so hard I was sure it would leap straight out my throat. I felt ill, like I was going to throw up.

Here I was, a 40 year old married mother of two, head over heels over a man who was young enough to be my son. [...] I had this hunger raging through me, I had to see as many of his movies as I could. I gorged myself on Leo.

Discussion points: Celebrity Stalking Incidents: an Empirical Study (abstract); Do men, and not just women, build such communal shrines to the objects of their frustrated desires; Envy; and the utter waste of creative energies.

It's easy to be snide, but I've been interested in this for a while: what is all this about? An emptiness and a dissatisfaction with life as it is? For further study: The Viggo Mortensen Fan Base (I'm not going to link to it, as it's easy to find, and they've moved to member-only reading and posting in the last week, so you can't wander around wide eyed reading hundreds of obsessive posts any longer. I hasten to add that I am not and never will be a member; curiosity brought me there, gawking made me stay for a while).

My poem for Leo:

DeCaprio, you like a young Brando,
But you are going to seed
twenty years earlier.

Lovely shot. Cut off the ends of her lower legs why don't you, Mr. Photographer? And why is she so aroused by the sand? Maybe she's hot for Leo?

Based on my personal appreciation of mr. DiCaprio, here are some lyrical suggestions:

Titanic rhymes with panic
Gangs of New York rhymes with dork
Leonardo rhymes with retardo

There you go. Now just let your muse do the rest.

p.s: Spell Check suggestion-- DiCaprio<--- diaper
