Reading more poems helps even if you are poet or not. You need to know others' styles. Thanks.

I have discovered the best way to improve my poetry is to connect to my readers by asking questions. Is my poem interesting?Does it have a purpose?Does it produce the right emotion?And most importantly does my poem really communicate to the reader. Another crucial element is to not limit the poem, sometimes it has a mind of its own. To do this I do not make hard and fast rules, second even though I do not make hard and fast rules I strive to not title my poem until it is done (unless during a workshop) , and I always read my poem out loud. It may seem simple, but I got this sinking feeling that many amateur poets like me skip out on this part.

We need to write about anything and about everything just to show things in a poetic style, then people will enjoy later on.

Writing poetry is not a joke or a farce,
what you said in poetry is also not final,
It is just to ignite the fire, that is there
as before and you have nothing to
do more but to declare it is there.

The main thing when writing poetry is that you enjoy writing it. Whether it is written to send a message, as a cathartic process or exercise or purely to write a beautiful flow of words describing an experience, or of anything that has inspired you, it doesn't matter. People often try to defend their style of poetry by denigrating others. I say it doesn't matter, ignore them, choose your own style, work on it, improve on it until you are happy with the results. Everybody has their own preference when it comes to poetry and you can't please everybody, so stay true to yourself and write what comes naturally to you. It's not some competition of who can write more intellectually than somebody else, it's about passion and getting that over the best way you can. I write purely for the enjoyment of it, should any of my poetry get published then that would be a bonus. So, good luck and just keep working at it.

Before we start writing poetry, we need to ask ourselves about the aims of writing poetry. Do we write just for any aim or just for fun?Writing poetry is a great job that depends on the person himself or herself anytime.

Hi everybody?I started writing songs when I was 16...Now I m 24...I m from Serbia, but I write songs in english...
I would like you to tell me, what do you think of this little thingy :)
Tell me..Will you dance for rain tonight?
Ask her to remedy your scars...
And before it touches the ground...
Cut her open with your smile...
Tell me...Is your darkness any brighter
When I hold your hand?
Does your heart beat any faster
When you know, love commands...
Tell me...won`t you tickle the evil that lies under your bed?
Put your walls of sorrow down, and enjoy the show,
Ask it to ravage the souls of ones who left you for dead..
And your sun will shine before tomorrow...
Tell me...do you revel in those blue notes that you play?
Ask them to ease your mind...
And before the echo reaches your ears
Silence it with your tears...
Tell me...is it morning already?.

Writing poetry gives an opportunity of expressing feelings of the events we noticed, observed, and came to know about and the important events we looks in our own angles and perfect forum to inter act with noble minds.
