    I used to write poetry

    that strictly rhymed and flowed. I loved the lull of it when spoken. It appealed to my musical side. I hated poetry that didn't rhyme, it just wasn't for me. I didn't understand it. But then I got older, you grow and change. I decided to explore poetry more for the art itself...

    I have been told that free writing is a joke,

    poetry has to rhyme. Absolute nonsense! I'm not going to limit my writing just because my thoughts don't rhyme. That completely changes the point of your work. It's all about flow and rhythm. When your thoughts come alive it all comes together in the end.

    I always write poems that don't rhyme.  I don't think I could/would want to write a poem that rhymes...it's just too hard!  My History teacher loves "rhyming couplets" (which, tbh, I don't even really know that that is) and she always makes us write poems that rhyme...

    I've been loved, but never loved.

    I have seen, but have never been seen. I've never been heard, but have called. I've followed close behind, but never noticed. I've grinned, but it wasn't true. Tears were there, but they never fell. - Bad poetry by Roabie; 2014.

    Their Limbs Were Not Enough

    Sometimes in the late hour, When mist comes out to greet pavement We find that we are not The grand statues we thought we were, That today will wash away like rain in sewer trails And that we are still not enough.
