What is poetry?
Poetry is many things
But there are far more things that poetry is not
Poetry is not a style of writing
Poetry is not a rhyme or a limerick
Poetry is not something you can read
Poetry isn't just seen or heard, but seen, heard, and felt
What is poetry, then?
I can't tell you that, no one can
But you can only know
And even then you can't tell anyone what poetry is
Because poetry isn't words
Poetry is a feeling you get in your chest
Poetry is a chill that runs through your body
Poetry is a knife that slices your soul
Poetry is ...
Fire, burning fire,
Brilliant flames ablaze;
Crimson, yellow, orange fire
A wild and radiant haze.
Smoke of black, deadly, choking,
Fatal smoke of grey:
Arise from glowing embers
In a twisting sort of way.
