      This sounds pretty serious. First up, make sure the remainder of your poems are safe. Second, you can report the poem. You will have to probably have to prove to the poem hunter administration tha ... more

      You can report the poem to the poem hunter administration. The problem is that you would have to prove to them that the poem was was stolen from you and I am not sure how best to do that. I wish you ... more

    a little Halloween fun...

    Halloween Stroll

    Crackle, crackle
    Dusty shadows
    Crunch and cackle
    Follow hollow
    Pounding footsteps

    Cracks of thunder
    Broken branches
    Over, under
    Snap and scream
    Spooky Doppler

    The Big Bopper
    Sings Chantilly lace
    And a pretty face
    But I digress
    As trees undress

    On this unholy
    Wooded path
    To who knows where
    I stroll and stare
    At the murky water

    The misted river
    Seems to swerve
    Around the curve
    Of my pretty neck
    As I do swear

    This wretched dream
    Will be my last trek
    Unnerved through this
    Forest preserve
    On Halloween

    Right now, at this very moment (well, since it's PoemHunter, it was about 30 minutes ago) there is ONE person from Italy on this site. I wonder who that person is?ONE FREAKING guy in Italy is perusing the pages of PoemHunter at this exact point in time. Relatively speaking, that is. What's his name?Giuseppe?Maybe it's Fredrico Fellini's grandson. That would be cool. " Yo! Giuseppe! Your Grandpa made killer movies! Stop with the garlic already, huh! ?"

    A poem about Lonliness written by Trumbull stickney read today in this poemhunter.com. and found it very beautiful . While the biography read it is understood that he was an eminent student and man of great knowledge. I liked the poem.

    Puritans are still active in the field of controlling poetic taste. So poet should have to create another poetry-world where free thoughts are always welcomed. The expression of exposing old things in new dimension is modernity. But during a life-time journey through this word-art, a poet really, otherwise have to be habituated with the dictators (puritans) choice of expressional limit. To expose the fire inside a poet burns just to make his/her standard, quiet rare to find the space where he/she could begin!

    It's Almost Over

    I caterwauled through skies
    on a roller coaster sparkle
    straddling that front car

    like riding piggy back
    on a pissed off Hulk Hogan
    throwing me down on

    a flimsy collapsible card
    table still smiling traversing
    skies accusing clouds

    screaming at my ending life
    too soon plunging into
    dark earth my feet are

    sopping wet my hair
    is whooshing backwards
    and I know my left hand

    will be reaching out of
    your mud wanting more.

    Just read a poem by Wallace Stevens titled- Of Modern Poetry.
    I love this poem. It touches on the raw materials a poem draws
    On and how a poem works in the mind of the reader Or the listener.
    A poem must be fresh and it must avoid outdated concerned and forms.
    A great tonic for us fledgling scribblers!

    Hello, I have an Essay which is: Is poetry a denial or sublimation of reality?
    Wondered if you have any ideas or poets to help me with this question...
    It's in British literature so I'm allowed to quote any English poets from Shakespeare to nowadays

      I would not say that it is a denial of reality as such. While poets can create great works, none can create true reality as that already exists. A poet can create an illusion of reality in a poem, b ... more
