K, I read your poems. They're not very good, mildly awkward and too old-fashioned. You need to understand the old educational axiom, nothing coming in, nothing going out. If you don't widen and deepen your involvement with poetry (not necessarily a lit course or a college poetry writing course but at least start reading lots of good contemporary poets- not the many wannabes on this site! ! ! - they'll guide and inspire you) , you won't improve. I can guarantee that!
