    I feel I am becoming the reincarnation of Gabriel Rossetti & William Blake! !
    No wonder my poetry is terrible! ((:

    Free is the only form of true poetry.
    Outside the lines, we paint our pictures of words and worlds like children
    fingerpainting in color.

    How remarkable the connection between speaker and listener.

    It's the freedom to feel the expression of another and that's the form itself.

    The expression is shared and takes the shape of what it is, of who you are,
    the poem.

    free form is a form of poetry where there is no wrong, i must say though if a free form poem does not spark from your heart then it is just words on paper.

    'The Same Damn Day'

    I'm praying so fervently
    That my life is beginning to ache
    Due to a build up of lactic acid
    In my faith.
    When is metamorphisis?
    How long til a change comes?
    Give me reasons to panic,
    To cry,
    To cherish,
    To feel.
    Stars don't leave bed til morning's light:
    Magnify the swelter of a sunny day.
    Validate me.
    Fascinate me.
    Incinerate me!
    I'm weary of the same sheets and pillows
    That I die in every night anyhow.
    I don't want to drink from 'my' coffee mug in the morning
    After a shower with the same damn shampoo and conditioner again.
    I need to die, but I need to live!
    I want to live to see another day,
    But I don't want to live in yet another day.
    I have before given birth
    To a new day, not tomorrow,
    But to a new day
    Where I was happy
    And new,
    But only dreaming...

    Kyle S. Hamp

    I comment on poems. So if you would like to know what i think about one of your poems then send me the title. I'll read it and comment. Im on Monday-Friday from 9-11am. This is in the United States. Eastern standard time. A few things to remember though... I enjoy reading poems that rhyme, it's like candy to my mind. ALSO, dont't forget, a good poet takes criticism into consideration.

    Free Form is an oxymoron. How can something be expressed freely if it has to have a particular form. The definition of Form is: the manner or style of arranging and coordinating parts for a pleasing or effective result. So in fact the verses at least need to be arranged so that they are pleasing. And Free: exempt or released from something specified that controls or restrains. So How can I be released to freely write my poetry if I have to do it in a manner or style that has effective and pleasing results? What if my intention is to rake my fingernail down some ones chalk board, which is how I write only with rhythm and rhyme, then I can’t call it Free Form? I will call it Free Verse instead.
