I like that. I wish I could write poetry. I'm too confined by the fear that I am 'doing it wrong'.


Thanks!

Like lucimay said there are no poetry rules - which is why I find poetry so enticing. It is difficult to explain how I write poetry. so you will not like the answer. It just come bursting out based on a emotional moment. Most of the time I find it easier to write sad or reflective poetry. When I try to write happy or romantic etc I feel too Hallmarkish and end up mostly tossing it - lol.

As far as meter. like I said I write from emotion and so the meter just kind of exists based on that emotional moment. If I "feel" a pause in the emotion a line in the poetry has something that expresses the pause. As Lucimay says look at non conventional poets. I read a LOT of e e Cummings as a teenager. His stuff to me is amazing.

Lucimay! great poetry and thanks for posting some here! I am glad you joined here and hope others post some as well! Sorus give it a shot!!

Move On

Sometimes you are broken
the tunnel ahead dark

you keep walking
- because you must -

you trip and fall
life demands you get up

you look back
- because you doubt -

grey skies
bearing down on you

your mind will not
give you solace

you look down
- because you're giving up -

breathe deeply
hear the air ring your ears

step
step
step

you keep moving
- because you are trying -

next silence

you can cry
not in sadness
no touch your tears
the relief is there

you lift your head
- because there is hope -

a small light beacons
- that is the end

it is there

you walk proudly
- because you are -

this moment
touch it
feel it
live it

move on.

Ok a stab at a "romantic' poem one that I didn't toss - lol

Tenderness
Tenderness falls
like a soft feather
my embrace will soften your soul

Tenderness calls
stand up and listen
my embrace is meant to hold

Tenderness galls
when it is forgotten
my embrace longs to hold you

Tenderness has walls
when it was broken
my embrace seeks to find you

Tenderness calls
give it a hand
my embrace will remind you

Tenderness falls
and loves completely
my embrace will show you

Tenderness calls
when tenderness falls
my embrace breaks down those walls

My embrace will be there
when tenderness calls

Sightings II

Douglas Ray Tucker stands before me
in ballcap and grin, hair nappy,
clothes lurched all to one side,
holding a cup, and says
jus' 'cause you have a cup don't mean nuthin',
I'm a man!
I'm tryin' to make some progress here.
I'm from Florida.
People different here.
People don't see nuthin' but the cup.
Butchoo a different kinda woman, he says.
I got a sister wears glasses, he says.
You might wear glasses,
butchoo see better than most!
There is a God, he says.
We might meet each other
another time down the road!
Faith before reason, he says,
and keeps on grinning,
faith before reason.
