you don't need a form to write poetry.

your form comes to you.

so don't go looking for it.

    Dave-For being as young as you are you have a lot of wisdom...when it comes to form i admit i am a bit oba rebel...i studied the works of some of the great poets...some i liked and some i disliked...i'd like to say if you exchanged the word form for style...yes, it is not a good thing to copy someone elses style...i did a lot of experimental stuff in my younger days but once i matured, i discovered, i did in fact end up with my own style...i have found that when i set my ego aside and let my passion guide me, i write my best...
