Why don't you start reading a lot and also spend timing on writing too.Gradually you'll evolve.

by reading poems...study how they are written and how poets convey messages in different ways. The more you will learn that....the more you will find your perfect way to write.

I think reading will definitely help in learning poems. Can you suggest some poems. Because I want to start from less reading stuff.

I think you can improve your writing skill the same way you can improve a language: - by reading, you'll learn different words, styles and expressions; - by reading, again, because you'll get inspired to write your own poems; - by writing, because you'll search for synonyms, rhymes and practice makes you (almost) perfect somehow. There are many different styles, I learned them at school but I don't remember much. I personally like the old style, rhymes and same number of syllables for each line. Some people like to use words to make shapes, surely modern.

This is a painful process that can cure writer's block. Avoid TV, Internet and any kind of media with pictures. Just read a book, a novel or non fiction may do. Reading literature and avoiding media for a week will boost your creativity.
