Trying my hand at poetry


NickolasJames8

Ok, so I've started a Poetry Series at the efiction section of this site. and I've been getting some good reviews. I mean, my first poem wasn't that good. It didn't rhyme, so I think people naturally hate it. But my other poems have gotten some good reviews.

Of course, that doesn't mean that I'm not writing stories anymore. As a matter fo fact, I'm almost done with chapter 6 of My Jump Off. I'm going out tonight, so I won't get it done until either when I get home tonight or tomorrow. But I promise that it will be posted no later than tomorrow. :)

Anyway, if you read my poems, please leave me comments and rate them. Even if you hate them and you think I'm the worlds worst poet and writer, I would like to here from my readers.

Not bad at all. I think it would be better though if you posted them all at once, or at least collected a bunch that are of the same theme, and posted them all together instead of one-by-one ... sometimes poetry tends to have a better effect that way, as you can see different sides (or different manifestations of the same side) of a poet-writer that way, rather than a bunch of individual, stand-alone poems. Also, by doing this, you allow yourself some time to go back and review/revise, and see if you can develop some continguity between poems, see if you can draw some kind of emotional thread through each of them.

Actually Nick, most poems do not rhyme at all.

This is just my opinion on poetry, but I think when poems rhyme it gives them a cheesy effect and I can't take it seriously. It's much better to just have a poem written from heart rather than style; it turns out a lot more personal that way. Your poems are great though =D

My poems are cheesey???? :o:o:o

Um, Nicko ... um ... you are a sweet & cheesey kinda guy ... that mixed with the arrogant jerk part is why we love you so much.

Hey Nick :D

 

I really loved your poems! I'm sorry I didn't comment on the first one, I just didn't feel like I had anything worthwhile to say, but I definitely liked it :) . My first thought, to be honest, was, "touching and a little scary". But I'm sure that's what you were going for since you described it as a poem about twisted love. I'm not sure which of the other three is my favourite, they're all SO beautiful! I bet your dad and Taylor were really touched when they read them! :D Anyway thank you for sharing your work with us :)

 

Have an awesome day and take care! :hug:
