    Have any of you guys read Ben Jacobson's poem Feast of Booths, i think it's really good. Arthur Rimbaud like. It's not to over complicated as so many poems often are, it's just right.

    in writing poetry
    there are only two rules
    give your verses some mystery
    and let your words be tools

    Dear poets, one small, but substantial change was made to my latest poem

    Eclipsing Untimely Queues On Whims Of Practical Intuition,

    which has made it all the more readable now, as I think, in its final form. Still, I'm always open to any suggestions by yourselves on matters of how to improve on my writings linguistically, dear poets, especially by you poets born with the English tongue (I, a German, was held and spoken to as a baby for some time by a colored American G.I.'s wife who then lived with us as tenants) .
    Please don't be hesitant to inform about anything in my use of language, or even of style, for that matter, in case something had striked your senses on reading my poems. Thanks a lot for your attention. It'll be a rewarding thing!

      Erhard, English, much like German, does lend itself to the condensing of language. You can shorten and intensify your line if you give thought to the vernacular that you employ. Granted, all poetry is ... more

      I have read several of your poems and was very impressed. I intend to read all of your posted poems soon, and would encourage you to post more. Without a doubt, my favorite one right now is Greed 2.

    Hello fellow poets.
    I have written several poems on this site, and I have shown them to a few of my close friends and teachers. I was just looking for feedback on them, because I would love to get them published sometime in the near future. (Even though I'm only fourteen, I set extremely high goals for myself.) I would truly appreciate it if you would read them and let me know what you think! Thanks!

    May the darkness embrace you,
