Do You Write Poetry?

United States
July 24, 2008 8:32pm CST
I enjoy reading and writing poetry. I've thought about posting some of my poems, but I'm not sure that people would be interested. So, do you like to write poetry? If so, do you have a poem that you would want to share with me and the rest of the myLot community?

if you plan to publish it in the web and not just in your blog, removed it there before you make a submission coz there are some publishing company that offers only sole propriety in publishing it though there are others not is not strict with it. lem'me know if you like and i'll direct you to a good site that offers many good things.

Yes, I write poetry. I took several creative writing courses in high school, and have taken several (I am actually taking my third now) online courses at the Online School of Poetry taught by a high school classmate of my dad's. I write poetry on my own when the mood strikes me but I would not call myself a serious poet. I tend to use very melodramatic, dark tones, so if you don't like that you probably won't care for most of my poetical ponderings. Here is one I wrote several years ago entitled "Perilous Abjection:" Immaculate targets with eyes abound Black-laced cupids on their holy ground Blood and salt staining their skin Faking not happiness since left chagrined A flight to darkness, many confound If masked people'd think they're just playing around Tis why they wear black, let the truth be propound A new way to fly is just a new way to sin Immaculate targets with eyes abound Craving autonomy their secrets expound A remedy for your soul in this lost and found With a need for control they feel akin When they come here where all know where they've been Seeking that light that shines eminence renowned Immaculate targets with eyes abound There will be more on my website when I get it back up, and will post the link in my profile when I do. =)

I used to write poems allot during my high school drama and English classes. But I haven't wrote any in a long time. My boyfriend wants me to start writing again because he is a rapper and he wants to use my poems in with his lyrics along with things he has wrote.

I write poetry almost daily. I just completed a 30 poems in 30 days contest. I was supposed to find out if I won today, but there is no word yet. I'm a happy member of a local poetry group. I have even created several poetry chapbooks; small collections of poetry. Their are 8 now.

Yes, I write poetry, short stories and just about anything else that would come to mind. I even wrote a play, although I never though I had that in me. Writing is who I am. I checked out a while back, meaning I really haven't been penning any thought in words. I will however post some of my work to encourage others to reach for their destiny of greatness. I truly must be inspired to write. So there, I'm still waiting! Thanks! Blessings...

i still consider myself a newbie in this scribbling activity although i already noticed that i wanted to write or had the inclination when i was still in high school but i just can't write something or there are just no words coming our of my thoughts and translate that in writings. it is not until 2001 that i (forced myself to make one) was able to create one, it was kinda long and after 3 years or so, i revised it to make it palatable and so does some of my works. since then i was able to write about 16 compositions and recently i found out a site where to publish it and when i check yesterday, there were 9 articles already that were approved and published. PM when if you like to take a peek of my simple thoughts..

I do. I don't see the talent that people claim that I have. I don't know. I don't really put a lot of thought into them. I concentrate more on feature long stories. Those are twice as meaningful to me. And I can get my point across with stories. I feel like I'm lacking points with my poems.

I love writing poetry actually I am the former literary editor in our school's newspaper, I can't share anything because I have already passed them all in a publishing company.

I do write poetry sometimes, and there is one particular mylotter to whose discussions I try and respond to in verse. I have started a couple of discussions a year or so ago - they cab=n be found at the following links: Rain and my love : http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1163812.aspx Rain and my love - complete http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1374886.aspx Today I feel that maybe I have concentrated too much on emotions and verse in these pomes. You are welcome and all are to comment and share some of your verse links.
