Poetry


Poetry is music 🎶 it's words a melody. Whenever you read a poem it rhymes in harmony.


CLASSICAL vs MODERN POETRY ~ BRIANSODES
*******************************
CLASSICAL POETRY
Has Structure ~ Verses
(Stanzas) ~ Rhyme & Rhythm
It is BEAUTIFUL in it's Form &
Function ~ Delight to Read & Recite !
*******************************
MODERN POETRY
Lack Form & Function
No Verse or Rhyme Pattern
No Grammar or Spelling it is
Just letters (and sometimes words)
Arranged randomly like toys in a toy box !
************************************
EXAMPLE OF MODERN POETRY !
CLAUTROPHOBIC
**************
stuk in a box
no rume to osilate
no rume to ruminate ~ no
rume ~ no rume ~ no rume ~ no rume
i'm clawstofobicisin' getmeout of here !


Poetry is from the heart
We share our lives when we're apart
Poetry has brought me friends
Who share their love with painful pens
Poetry can help me heal
Reading and writing how I feel


My mind is my brush and my words are my paint
My heart is the palette from which I create
From the canvas of time I will construct a rhyme
Poetry is a maze of my own confines


Poems are from the heart, self expression at it’s best.
And to have the power to air my words so freely leaves me feeling rather blessed.
I never thought that I would have my own space to set my thoughts free, truth being told my poems are the real key hole to the real me.
You don’t have to understand them, I wouldn’t blame you if you couldn’t, and if you struggle to dissect them, that means you probably shouldn’t.
The saying goes, some things are best left unsaid, but whats the fun in keeping things caged up in your head?
I feel so much better knowing my words are there for the world to see, in some sense of the word it makes me feel free.


Poetry to me
Jumbled words to entertain
Running round in circles
A holding pen within my brain
They dig a tunnel through the heart
Subliminal thoughts of metaphoric prose
An army of words bounds my hands
I’m held hostage until I compose
Adjectives, verbs, and nouns with rhyme
Just words waiting on release
Anxiously they breakout
Risking capture by the word police

      Poetry can be all kinds of things. It does not even have to rhyme. It does not matter the topic. It is however you feel.

        I love this, often I feel like I will explode with all the thoughts trapped inside my head, then when you take the time, get the pen and paper out, then there is a big release of anxiety. All the words down on paper is one of life’s greatest therapy. Love this write.

          Sorry I missed this. I have been on holiday. Poetry for me is such a great way to express all those bottled up feelings and thoughts. Such a relief sometimes to get it out so to speak. Playing with words and constructing each verse is very therapeutic and a healthy way to expel pent up emotions and all which can be harmful to our wellbeing

          But also poetry is such a beautiful art. We can learn to empathise with others by placing ourselves in other people’s situations and contemplate on life’s many facets.

          Poetry is such a creative yet reflective form of thinking. Bringing people together or making us rethink on life

          A great dedication to poetry :)
