    You all have great poems.I enjoy reading them. I wrote this poem that is currently untitled. Please read it and tell me what you think. Maybe you guys can help me think of a name.

    Sitting here
    is a long wait.
    Seconds feel like minutes,
    minutes feel like hours.
    I'm waiting for your arrival,
    not knowing who you are,
    or what you will look like.
    I have wanted you
    for the longest time.
    Years and years
    have gone by,
    still no sign of you.

    I am gradually posting a collection of poems called RTFM (an acronym much used by technical support people) which may amuse members. The collection has as its theme the nature of poetic thought and the use of words as an artistic craft. Point PoemHunter's search engine at Stewart McKenzie to view the collection.

    Hiya everyone you peoms are great please have a look at my recent one and see what u think?

    Desperation for Love

    My heart eagerest for things unknown
    Unknown but wanted but needed
    Needed, since it is my heart that aches
    Aches for the sweetest touch of your hands
    Hands exploring my body, comforting my heart
    Heart lies open, so vulnerable but uncaring
    Uncaring yet guarded, yet persistent
    Persistent but hesitant and scared
    Scared for it may be hurt
    Hurt haunting my dreams spoiling my pleasure
    Pleasure in which I seek
    Seek I do but unsuccessfully
    Unsuccessfully is my life
    Life without love
    Love is all I want
    Want but cannot have

    Thanx everyone hope u enjoy

    constricted by Time

    as i sit here waiting
    Time flying by like a hawk
    im the mouse to be its prey
    constricted by Time
    never enough
    always too much
    how can we survive in a life
    constricted by Time

    one of my first poems
    any suggestions or tips would be great! !

    In trying to structure a poem it's good to remember the Four E's:

    Good for presentations as well as prose, poetry, ads, &c.

      Whoa, this is completely too restrictive. Why should a poem entertain? Is it necessary for it to? What of creating a feeling of discomfort in the participant? A poem does not need to have a defini ... more
