Me and my boyfriend both right poetry and when I was in the hospital for my eating disorder the day I nearly died, he wrote me a poem and today he sold the god damn poem OUR poem it had so much sentimental value to us and he went and he sold it for three dollers is it alright to feel sad over this (I keep crying it hurt my feelings
I think you need to make sure you have an original copy that can prove that you are the original author and all otherwise plagiarism is gonna be a a real bitch. Imagine if those people that bought your poem claim your work as theirs or something and made additional profit of it, as if that was the case I'd know I'd be very upset and blame who caused this big mess.
I would have to say it was indeed very immature and inconsiderate of your boyfriend to sell YOUR poem WITHOUT your permission or authorization in the first place! It's still your property even if it was written by the both of you and therefore both parties must always come to mutual agreement before doing anything else to it, such as changing it, selling it, getting it published, etc.
Thats very disrespectful to you and your relationship. A poem, something that was meant for you especially must of meant a lot. Its not okay what he did, you should talk to him about it and tell that what he did hurt you a lot. somethin like that should be meant for your eyes and no one elses.
I know most will tell it's wrong, it is somehow. But i will point out some things. Was that poem about you exclusively? Did he asked u before selling? If may have sold it, but it doesn't mean he doesn't remember it , a pic would be enough. I don't know why he sold it, maybe he had reason. But he shouldn't have.
