On Poetry

I like to think that I'm a fairly poetic person. I love to write poetry. My mother has the real talent for it, but I got a piece of that talent as well as all her other artistic ablilities. Poetry is beautiful. I can think of no other words to decribe it at the moment....

Here is one I wrote awhile back during one of my rather depressing times...:

Life is great,

life is grand.

Love's the ocean

and I'm the sand.

Barely touching.

Never known.

So I'll life my life

all alone.

Its not my greatest... but it certainly is a piece of my heart.

Thank you!! Well appreciated! :)

I love it. I've been skimming through poems, only reading those that catch my eye, and I'll admit, this one certainly did! Great job, and great metaphors!

thanks :)

Thank you, all of you. I was feeling very depressed when I wrote it. I was in love with my friend and he was with someone else. Then, later, when he discovered me, I was dating someone else. When we finally got together, I realized that it wasn't meant to be. So I broke it off. Depressed for nothing but a beautiful poem, I guess. :

very beautiful and simple lovely. it says more to me than just a poem like my life story i felt my self in love is the ocean and i'm the sand barely touching.

That's very beautiful, I can't really think of anything to say, it's just so on level with how I feel.
