    Rives Is My Favorite

    I discovered spoken word poetry last summer and I immediately fell in love with words all over again. It's amazing what those poets can do with their poems and they way they can make people feel. I'm so impressed and amazed and it's just all like... wow. I highly suggest...

    I Haven't "spoken" This Yet But I'd Like Some Feedback Nonetheless "i Will Follow You"

    I will follow you.Like a lost puppy whining for a scrap of attention. I will sit up and beg for a morsel of affection.There was time when you held me close. When I lay in your loving embrace, rocked to sleep by your chorus of "I love you's" mixed with the steel-drum beat of my...

    Priceless

    it's everything about the timbre of voice and skill in operating it properly.so that it can be interpreted in many different ways.I think spoken word poetry is more solemn than written one.it evokes emotions and memories deeply embedded in us to emerge.great atmosphere occurs...

    Discovering Discovery

    I discovered the beauty of Spoken Word Poetry last night. Literally, one day before I found out that this was an actual thing. I was playing with my new Logitech G35 Headset and discovered that I really like the sound of my recorded voice. Bearing that in mind, I took it upon...

    Myseterious Me

    I won't announce my name, Because if I do. I might as well tell my life story. But we wouldn't want that. I express myself through poetry. I'll let you guess my life story. No this isn't a game. But it's a fun way to do things right? Some people may know me. But won't know me...

    It's Not Just How It's Written

    It's how it's read aloud too. You can give two different people the same poem to read out loud, and the poems can be projected in two completely different ways, just on how the reader says everything. I love hearing poems read with conviction, and passion, and emotion. It...

    I'll Get There

    I'm fairly new to the land of poetry.  It's personal, and universal, and captivating. I'm driving down this road cautiously, lest I have any unfortunate collisions, for which I am uninsured. But I am drawn, and I am coming, even if it takes half of forever to hobble there...
