Hey fellow poets, I'm L.A.H./Love_And_Hate/Lyle_Ashwyn_Holland_...
Notice the pun between my real name's initials and my alias??? ;)
Anyway, that's just to show the balance we have in our lives
And the balance In my poems will be the same for you.
The yin and the yang. The good side and bad side.
The " Love_And_Hate" we share about everything...
So check my poems out, about anything and everything.
If real people can real-ate(relate) ...
My 1st poem will be titled: " Dreams" !

Hi everyone... I'm having a very hard time getting my poems reviewed. I'm not sure what will help but I will review your poems if anyone would care to take a look at mine. Constructive criticism is very welcome. My poems can be a tad dark at times and I tend to use a lot of metaphores. Because of this, my poems often have different meanings for different people. It would be great to get different perspectives.
Thank you.: 3

You. Yes you....... Hi. My Name is Leon, I’m 21 years old and a service member of the United States Coast Guard, I'm very new when it comes to posting poetry but I've been informed in the past that I am a decent poet. Whether or not this is true has yet to be seen however. So if you (that’s right YOU!) would please go ahead and look at my page. Back ground on me I’ve been writing for a long time, I have about 127 pages typed out in Microsoft Word but I’ve only published a select few so far. If you enjoy them please feel free to comment and rate, if you don't enjoy them please message me so I can bear the shame in private. I’m sure there will be plenty of that.

YOUR TOWER OF TIME
America, have you forgotten
the very sun that warms your face and your feet?
, have you forgotten
the miracle that paints your afternoon streets
a solemn orange and silent red;
do you stare at the ground instead?
look up, the sun is calling;
'I'm disappointed in you', it is softly saying
'get off your knees, stop praying'
your Tower of Time is falling.
This is one of my newer poems - - - If i had to describe my writing technique, it's kinda like pulling off a band-aid. i let the emotion behind my poems build up inside of me...i pretty much ignore them (poetically) until the force sort of sneaks up on me and i can't prevent it from coming out. Also, I don't have a particular writing pattern, i.e. once a week, twice a day, etc. - - - my writing is very sporadic. a lot of people will cry or punch a wall when emotions come to a boiling point (and i do my share of that too) , but, i try to harness that emotion and sit down and put it in words, get it out quickly, and try to stay very focused. i would actually call it a mental state of heightened awareness, which probably causes me to temporarily have conscious access to a larger portion of my entire vocabulary and other abilities of effective communication. (that state only lasts maybe 45 minutes at most for me, but most often only for like 2-6 minutes...) to me it seems too intense to stay in that mental state for too long - - it's almost tiresome in a way. I think many people would equate poetry metaphorically to weeping or loudly celebrating. but most people, when they genuinely cry, only do it probably for 2 minutes or so, so it would make sense that intense poetic writing would only come in short bursts usually for most people. does anyone else share my feelings about this, or have any totally different approaches to writing?
