    Poetry in its most virgin sense, Has nothing but attention as its defense. It cannot escape its unnatural flow, Crammed inside a box by some conflicted foe.   Basically, what I'm saying is I don't like it because it's not natural. At the first attempt at making...

    Its Confusing...

    I love to read, and sometimes I even love to write. but not poetry. Not because its too short, or too complicated, or anything like that. I just don't like it. All my teachers have tried to point out metaphors and how "It says this, but the poet is REALLY saying this.." That's...

    Not the Serious Stuff At Least

      Yeah, I really don't know what to do with all that real poetry - I probably couldn't tell you the difference between poetry written by Keats or the neighbor's cat. I just don't fully enjoy it. But the fun stuff that isn't so pretentious and dense, I can handle. ...

    OK, I Confess, I Confess!

    I'm actually rather ashamed of this. I enjoy FUNNY poetry. And that's it. When it comes to "real" poetry, I'm not even sure if I can tell the difference between good poetry and bad poetry. None of it does anything for me. Yes, I love words. I do. I love well-written...
