To relate, to imagine something similar to what is being shown, to imagine what it might be like.
A metaphorical meaning is like being a shadow that tries to relate to a star.
A poem with metaphorical meaning is written with more effort, research, and a deeper understanding of language.
I have written more metaphorical poems than average poetry.
I work harder on metaphorical meaning than I would with basic techniques. I love a challenge so that's why you see more metaphorical poems written by me.
I have researched many languages and meanings to words, my techniques for writing reflect my efforts.
I am a writer who writes with imagery and metaphor so often that I am known to be an eccentric writer. It's an exotic way of expression.
It helps my readers to relate to what I am thinking. Also, it is how my brain sees the world.
I was not born with language like most people are, I am an autistic person. I don't have a natural language in my mind, I have learned how to express myself through writing because of my handicap.
I am not perfect but I try to improve myself by learning and practice.
I am still learning not to criticize myself too much. I am never a good judge so I try not to think about it too much. I analyze everything so I think it's good for me to try not to analyze my writing as often as possible. I end up changing my work until it turns into something completely different than it started out if I do.
I want people to see the effort and time I give my poetry, so I do my best to show it. I am always happy to do something new and challenging.
My grammar and spelling has improved because I am willing to take feedback.
I love it when people are honest and tell me if I made a mistake because I can learn from the mistake.
To grow and develop you need a plan and a place to go when you need space. I have learned this and I believe that is what helps me to improve.
Metaphorically speaking, I am like a leaf I change with the seasons and I am willing to grow within a tight space. I love being with other leafs like myself. That's why I join communities like this one.
