      It would still be there, just with strict forms, lots of dry rhyme and hard rythym. Oh, and draconian penalties for anyone deviating.

      Now children, a sociopath is not a person without feelings.It is not possible to be a sociopath without having/experiencing feelings. As to the world being a better place without feelings, that is pu ... more

      For me, it's wanting poems of mine to be 'out there', when there are so few other avenues for publication. Ratings do matter to me though. I haven't had an 'out of ten' for a couple of months now - ju ... more

      Community - I think that for me Declan's hit it. I've just looked up the ecological sense of 'community' -a group of interdependent plants or animals living together. And isn't that the very history o ... more

      Sonja, I guess that depends on whether you mean post poems here or just comments. I get the impression just posting poems on Poemhunter will get you more comments on the subject matter than on the sty ... more

    Hello everyone :) I was wondering what your opinions of poetry.com aka: The International Library of Poetry are? They have monthly poetry contests, big gatherings once or twice a year, and also publish poetry books. Kim

      Kim, RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY! If you mean poetry.com you should google it. I believe you'll get results under 'poetry scams', if you know what I mean. Their contests are legit (pay out is real) but be ... more
