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 ...
You know that feeling
Like you're not really there?
Sometimes I just want to sit and observe
And not be a part of life at all
Just watch all the little people from high above
And wonder why they do those things they do
Wouldn't life be grand
If there was no such thing as reality?
If life was like being in the TV?
