Painting is a kind of visual poetry as poetry is a kind of verbal painting....
by Ted Hughes
This house has been far out at sea all night,
The woods crashing through darkness, the booming hills,
Winds stampeding the fields under the window
Crimson hearts, previously ripped in two.
His pessimistic vision. Her realist point of view.
Two wondering souls that know not what to do.
This story is but a meager offering...
This one hits home. I needed to read it, to feel it. I've been berating myself, feeling like a fool for falling in love with a man I can never have, a man who doesn't feel the same...
THIS BE THE VERSE.
By Philip Larkin.
They **** you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had...
This poem by me is called "Love Yourself."
Love yourself and be good to yourself

For if dreams die
Life is a broken winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow...

my body pulls towards yours--
desire a long oar dipping
again and again
in this night's dark rain.

It is like poetry in motion,

And thought our country strong.
I almost didn’t see the change,
When things started going wrong.

To go through life without finding that connection is rather sad,
To walk aimlessly, always searching,
Having paused and to have stopped looking,
Like a river that has hit a dam...

My view on poetry
I can rhyme but trying to rhyme all the time gets corny
And Being too profound can get you lost in the story
Wordplay is optional a metaphor can help
This one is again more of a bad song.
Since I've been driving a lot, I've been listening to the radio more. There are a lot of songs about drinking and some of them seem a bit...

Sometimes I can barely write
Usually on days when me and my family fight
I spit all my venom at them vocally

Do so many people actually write poetry, looking at their experiences? It's kind of hard to believe, man.

Does it begin with a small or large ache?
Will I feel it at all?
Maybe it will slip unnoticed like a mouse through a wall?
