Poets are an interesting bunch,
All half mad at least.
I say I love poetry
When the words tear me up inside,
Stealing every breath.
I say it soothes me

"But we choose this life
Because we can't live without the fever dreams
Or syllables controlling our every move."

Do the waves
Ever wish to leave
The hold of the moon?

If it could,

Free it’s spirit
From the pull of a lover
Miles and miles away?

Or would it keep moving,
To the beat of a drum
No one else seems to hear?
Hi, I’m pretty new to this so please comment any tips and suggestions. Thank you!
Poetry is not a hobby
one can practice a hobby
showcase it
compete against others

But poetry can't be forced
No one can just sit and write
without having experianced

There must be feeling or emotion
the distruction of monotony
somthing much more
than just words
on a page.

In this crowded
I look for
A new prey
To ink its blood
On this lonely
Piece of sheet
That speaks
My hopeless

Fully entrenched in my MFA program. Will start posting again in July. I plan on cleaning up my page and presenting myself slightly more professional.....slightly.

Love you all,

See you soon,

Less 'cute' and forced, more revision and polish.
