But I have to admit, being on this forum I have extended my fields to the darker side of poetry. Something from which I could not write before starting this site. Not that I am completely proud of it. I'm not into writing about nature and my vocabulary needs to be improved.
    Quite true. Have you focused on a particular genre poetry would not have been born of you. This is a mingling of many genres, thoughts, sensitivities.

    I have read plenty of modern poetry and most of them do not touch me at all.

    However I am firmly convinced that poetry has to do with the power of imagination and sensibility. Poetry is the soul of something, life, feelings, humanity and prose is the bone and muscle of them. That is why I am tirelessly applauding the work poetry. Poetry is my cup of tea and I am a voracious reader

    You know for someone who likes poetry so much, why don't you stop talking about it and just upload some... Be interesting to read some of your poems.

    I'm sick of dating people. I'm going to start going out with armadillos.

    In fact I do not know the craft of writing poetry. I had written once a bunch of poems, they had turned out to be prosaic things and you will find them nauseating.

    I often feel fed up with the world I am living in, with the people I am dealing with. I have seen a great amount of sufferings, injustices and sabotages everywhere and I often try to mirror these things thru poems. I cannot write love poems since because I have nothing to say about them, anything striking.
    I hate political leaders and I want to write a few poems to arouse the people against the regime in my country. However I am not in politics and have no interest.

    Poetry is the heartbeat of an individual and only those who can understand the profundity of it can write poems.

    Ours is a Buddhist country and we have to learn by rote so many Buddhist hymns. They are in fact beautiful poems. But they are religious prayers.

    I have heard that only those people can write love and sentimental poems who have lived through such experiences. My life is dull and unexciting and as such I cannot write sentimental poems.

    However coming across this forum and to a few friends like you I feel my world is expanding and my circle of friends is increasing.

    This is what I am thinking about, funny things

    I'm thinking it might not make sense to get a cat when you're allergic to it, but this kitten is worth all the sniffles.

    Who calls an art gallery "house of pleasure"? Is it even possible not to know what that means?
