    Discuss ways to improve your poetry.....THIS DOES NOT MEAN POST YOUR POEMS HERE.
    Post your techniques, tips, and creative ideas about how to write better....AGAIN, THIS DOES NOT MEAN POST YOUR POEMS HERE.

    It is so annoying to see these self obsessed attention seekers destroying these forums.And even more pathetic the few who reply to them and encourage it.
    Get help and stop posting ya crap here ffs

      What is worse in my opinion, is that when someone does use the forum for its intended purpose, no one will respond. Is communication a dying, (or dead) , art?

    Forget

    I forgot to forget
    I remembered to remember
    Winter sun sparking your eyes
    Setting them alight –
    warming me,
    Memories
    Aspirations
    Dreams
    that you spoke
    Still etched in your face
    for my witness,
    Lost in the breeze,
    Twirling through the trees,
    Dancing in the wind,
    As we watched the seasons pass
    Nonchalant
    Coolly unconcerned – by definition,
    I tried
    But the wind blows past
    I breathe in the dance
    And I forget to forget.
    I remember.

      There is a whole lot that is very nice in this poem, the cleverness of the first two lines and the imagery to help the reader understand the abstraction of the emotion. I think it could be tighten up ... more

    Only providence knows what tommorow holds
    Only Thy knows whose time it is to leave
    Only He knows for how long it would take
    Only Thy as the total control
    , , , , So Dear, , , , , , , , ,
    Would always be with you
    Either though times or smooth
    Would always be by you side
    Either you need me or not
    Would always be by your call
    Either you say a word or not
    Would always stretch an helping hand
    Either you need an help or not
    Would never make you sad
    Either you wrong me or not
    Would never make you cry
    Either you offend me or not
    Would never leave you
    Either you here or far away
    Saying all this from the depth of my heart
    But am not promising
    Because am not sure i would wake up tommorow

    Hey Merry if ever you need any advice I am not the one to ask. It is Midnight Voice - Thomas A Robinson along with Valerie Dohen and Unwritten Soul. These 3 really have something to give to others. Thank You

    Hello friends, would you say, if you understand the following, which a few bugs and how authentic it sounds, thanks.

    What people know, what people know
    about a road out of the blue snow.
    Oh bro, some say: it's, where the wind always blows,
    where Dawn is slow, and it seems now -
    it was a long-long time ago.
    But in the ghostly mist the lonely star calls go.

    What people see, what people see, -
    boat leaves the endless empty sea.
    His flags dissolved in smoke like passing fantasy.
    But even, if in ecstasy,
    he confidently promised,
    you always knew - the germ is only where the seed.

    What people need, what people need,
    does not know even the free wind.
    And those, who sought, wandered while doing it.
    But even our little band also prefers the happy end.
    Playing the saw for you we have this country beat.

    When all your dealings super good,
    sheep eaten by wolves in the woods,
    and when now doesn't happens every bullshit,
    train rides between the angry clouds,
    and all of what you'll never know,
    remained in place, you will not see until the need.

    How could I love love, if love has never loved me. I am in bed alone and I cannot sleep, I am just fixing my memories by changing reality. El amor siempre Es rojo, y el cielo es muy palido.... Pero yo deseo verles por deseo y no antojo.

    I needs some help I have to write a sonnet for my English 102 class and I can't get meter to save my life. I'm hoping one of you fine folks will help me out. Here is my poem, feel free to rip it to shreds.

    What Will It Be?

    “What will it be Mac?” The bartender asks.
    I sit and ponder while I draw on my cigar,
    So many choices are there from his flasks.
    They range from the mundane to the bizarre.

    Do I fancy a Merlot from France,
    Or fine scotch from the Highland,
    Perhaps I should leave up to chance,
    Or tea from long-island.

    Shall I chase the green fairy,
    Or wait for the white lightning to strike?
    If I do things could get hairy,
    I can think of nothing I’d dislike.

    I sense that the answer is near,
    I’ll have one whiskey, one bourbon, one beer
