70 (who?)
Thoughts on paper,
Emotions in ink.
Verse that shows
What the artist may think.

Not just words
That rhyme or not.
It's a writer's emotion,
Their deepest thought.

To write great poetry
So deep and true,
It must come from emotions
Deep inside of you.

What you feel is what you write.
It helps to let it all out.
It's the perfect outlet
For those who don't scream and shout.

Do not be afraid
To let the world know.
Say what you think,
And let your emotions go.
This would be my way of saying what a poem is and how to wright one.
Those who have tried or do write poetry know that its not an easy process. The word choice and writing scheme are essential parts to writeing a poem. But in order to write a good poem,you have to write about something that you feel strong emotions for.
As I decribed in lines 15-16, its a good way to get rid of those strong emotions: such as anger, sorrow, depresion, or even bliss.
I'm not saying that its the best way for everyone to write a good poem... but it is the best way for me at least. ;)

You are definitely one of those people who has a way with words. This means a lot to me since I've had a writer's block for the longest time and I just can't get rid of it. I really miss writing.

And now I'm pouring my heart out in this tiny little space. Sorry bout that.

Anyway, I loved it.

Wow, thanks! Glad you liked it. =^_^=

I've had a bad case of writers block for a long while as well so I kinda understand where you're coming from. We all get out of those ruts eventually though. ;)

Also thanks for the Fave :+fav: and Watch :+devwatch:.

Your poem is very understanding. I love it! And what you said is true. Poetry is hard but it helps in so many ways. Also, it does come from inside, I've learn that many times.
