I posted my first poem here on Poem Hunter yesterday and it would mean a lot to me if someone would give me some feedback to improve my writing.

    Your poetry is good If English is not your first language your poetry is stupendous. However I would advise you to try writing in formal verse for a few future efforts. It will impose on you the discipline of shapng your expression to fit the pattern; which, in turn, will force you into a new way of saying what you want to say. Acquiring such a skill is liberating and you can apply it to your free verse if you wish.
    Most of the free verse I read (not yours of course) is cryptic to the point obscurity. Poetry is an art form and art is supposed to communicate.
