Biography of Eli MorenoDrew
Hey everyone! I'm 18 and live in a up-in-coming town called El Centro. Well i've been writing poetry for about two years now. Not to toot my own horn, but it just comes really naturally to me. My mom (who sadly was my English Teacher) taught me all the elements of poetry which i already know completely by heart. Some of my poems are good, some aren't. It's like sports, ya win some ya lose some. I also notice that i have Amadeus syndrome where i really don't like to change what i've written. I'm completely open to suggestions and criticisms. Thank everyone soooo much! i really appreciate it.

Don't rhyme, Poetry. Our thoughts and tongues don't think that way. Steer clear of meter, sweet Poetry. I'm tired of counting and scanning.

For Your Protection
Now I know how my mother felt I cannot pull out of this driveway, I ask you: Please put on your seatbelt.
These hands, calloused and dry like my sense of humor are scarred and tremble
Maybe my admiration For Jacques Brel Lies solely in the fact That I can’t understand him
I’ve come to realize

Over-rated British band
Without you singing along with them
And when I kiss you
I feel happy, inside.
