    Hello.

    I like to repeat the same line in all stanzas of a poem - please, see it used in this poem: http: //www.poemhunter.com/poem/i-only-want-to-be-myself/
    Can you, please, comment on this technique? Who else has used it?

    Thank you.

    Amor de lejos

    Amor de lejos, amor prohibido,
    Anoche sone contigo
    Aldespertar comprendi, que nuestro amor no tiene sentido
    Amor prohibido, hoy tu ya no eres mio,

    Sin tu amor ya todo se ha perdido
    Estoy sola con el alma desnuda, y siento frio
    Sin tus besos estoy perdida y enterrada en el olvido
    Amor de lejos, amor prohibido te vi partir y me ha dolido

    Amor mio anoche sone contigo y al despertar
    Comprendi con dolor que te habia perdido
    Quisiera entender, y me es dificil aceptar
    Que el amor de lejos ya no es amor
    Donde quedaron los abrazos, donde acabo la pasion?
    En el momento que te marchaste y me quede sin tu calor
    Porque te fuiste Si yo te amaba? Siempre te llevare en el corazon

    Con ansiedad espere tu regreso
    Y me quede aqui, sola y desnuda del alma, recordando tus caricias recordando tus besos y recordando tu amor, como un tatuaje te llevare en el alma y por siempre en este humilde corazon.

    I comment on poems. So if you would like to know what i think about one of your poems then send me the title. I'll read it and comment. Im on Monday-Friday from 9-11am. This is in the United States. Eastern standard time. A few things to remember though... I enjoy reading poems that rhyme, it's like candy to my mind: -) ALSO, dont't forget, a good poet takes criticism into consideration.

      Also, don't forget. It is vital that 'a good poet' gives contructive and evaluated criticism

    hello, i'm new in this site
    and as most of members of here
    i try to write poetry, i've written almost only in spanish (my mother tongue)
    and now i'm trying to go beyond, i'm studing english philology but i don't have yet a wide knowdlege about rhyme and meter in english. In spanish i can use it quite easy but spanish and english has different structure in phonologic level. So, i hope someone can explain how to make meter in english and also which poetic licenses there are in english.

    I'd be honored if some of you would be so kind as to read my poems, and critique accordingly. Thank you.

    I write poetry in a form pertaining to the bygone Romantic era. So I do not know how my poems would be acknowledged by the present-day readers. Please visit my site and let me know how my poems actually are. Please! ! !

    Publish: to make public an idea, thought, write, poem story et.al.
    If you create something in your work it automatically it becomes the copyright of its creator. According to recent copyright standards. To register your work with Congress is an additional protection. Though very few will copy work, and if you find someone using your work and claiming ownership you will have to get legal advise (spend money) and will amount to them stopping the use of your property. Though very few get to a hearing, as out of court deals are popular.
    Mostly, don't worry about if someone will steal your works. Concentrate on your work and get it out. If your work appears in a public paper, newsletter, online, essentially it is published.

    Can anyone explain to me how we copyright our poems on this website...do you copyright or just write and leave on this website. When we post our poems on this website is it considered published...because some of us send work to journals etc and they say you are to inform them if published..would this be considered as published? Please answer these queries...my head is spinning

      Hi Margaret; as the previous writer said, I do believe that if you have created the work, it is automatically copywritten if you say so. Just put © and your name at the bottom of each thing you publis ... more

      Hi, your site comes up fine, but wouldn't it be better to have the introduction piece up top and then the index underneath? When you first go to the site, you just get the list of things to click on, ... more
