Do you know what your natural style is when you write? C/C?

Style and Words

Upon a page a poet wandered by;

so odd he thought the words displayed this way,

as if the writer thought he must impress

by metered rhyme sung with iambic tones.

Seems not his natural comfort these words

aligned in awkward form so harsh the sound

for beats though kept without a plan will die

in harshest light of critics eyes reviewed.

We drum our words to lift the veil of thoughts

and paste these words upon a page to read.

In doing so we hope to move some minds

to think way past the obvious displayed.

Though when a form ill suits the poet’s style

the readers heads will shake… in disbelief.


I am a firm believer that everyone should practice writing to form as I feel in the end it makes one a better poet if nothing more for the discipline. However, one does need to find ones own voice and style.

    I am going to exhibit what a cad I am. I ignored the primary time via that it was once a NARRATIVE, and so I assumed it was once intended to be a poem. I was once worried approximately the haphazard constitution, on account that in shorter peices haphazard works however longer portions on the whole want stanzas and acquainted line lengths to guarantee the reader wherein she or he goes. When I obtained to line seven and it stated "unmarried tear has escaped it is duct" now not "A unmarried tear has escaped it is duct" I notion it was once a foul poetic elision (and an useless one,) and I stated to myself "see, that is why I do not learn this style of factor" and CLOSED THE WINDOW. But being your YA buddy, I guilted myself to return again and THEN I noticed that it was once a NARRATIVE and that line seven was once quite often a TYPO. Anyhow, mea culpa. Very expressive piece. I could like to look the person telling the opposite men and women she knew that she cared for THEM, it's just about like hubby is the one one that merits to be instructed "I love you" earlier than it's too overdue. Maybe we will do a Valentine's subject of telling EVERYONE we adore how we think. Anyhow I am pleased I got here again. See guilt has a well motive every so often.

    I naturally have no style

    nor rhythm

    but, I have learned forms, even writ a sonnet or two and while I appreciate the puzzle-piece placement of words, and the mental exercise it involves, I am more of a fan of free verse, and I adore writing haiku

    Your song sings prue and true,

    no danger here for me,

    I pen as no one else, nor would

    one ever like to pen as me.

    I flow free as does the breeze

    no form concern a rebel amateur

    we were not all cut out like to be the same

    if I tried to write like you? I could I suppose

    but why would I want to? I want to write like me...

    why would I want to write like them

    dead people who shoved their heads

    in ovens and worse?

    if I have to do harm to myself and commit

    suicide to be a poet

    then I do not want to be one

    and in that thought I find a poetic ruby

    to hone down into at poetic truth.
