Writing Poetry

    Dear poets, one small, but substantial change was made to my latest poem

    Eclipsing Untimely Queues On Whims Of Practical Intuition,

    which has made it all the more readable now, as I think, in its final form. Still, I'm always open to any suggestions by yourselves on matters of how to improve on my writings linguistically, dear poets, especially by you poets born with the English tongue (I, a German, was held and spoken to as a baby for some time by a colored American G.I.'s wife who then lived with us as tenants) .
    Please don't be hesitant to inform about anything in my use of language, or even of style, for that matter, in case something had striked your senses on reading my poems. Thanks a lot for your attention. It'll be a rewarding thing!

      Erhard, English, much like German, does lend itself to the condensing of language. You can shorten and intensify your line if you give thought to the vernacular that you employ. Granted, all poetry is ... more

      I have read several of your poems and was very impressed. I intend to read all of your posted poems soon, and would encourage you to post more. Without a doubt, my favorite one right now is Greed 2.

    Read my poem! Fellow poets, you will surely take it with you!

    Hello fellow poets.
    I have written several poems on this site, and I have shown them to a few of my close friends and teachers. I was just looking for feedback on them, because I would love to get them published sometime in the near future. (Even though I'm only fourteen, I set extremely high goals for myself.) I would truly appreciate it if you would read them and let me know what you think! Thanks!

    May the darkness embrace you,

      You can try if you want some excellent feedback. Be warned, though, that they don't sugar coat anything there. It can be a pretty tough place for newer poets. If you want to check ... more

    poetry is truly the writer's. you don't have to make it rhyme for anyone or be a certain way...that's why it's hard for me to write what someone tells me to. just use your emotions as your medium-anything tangible can be poetic. I have about 66 poems on the site, whosoever will may write comments

      You are right - you should never write in the way anyone tells you too. That was good advice given to me when I started and is worth sticking with...
