I Got No Right On A Poetry Site

I do not come close, what's lacrymose?
What's a sonnet or a pentameter,
What's worse I don't know open verse,
I got no right on a poetry site,

My friend write what you feel, as you feel it....in whatever manner you chose....as poetry in fact is 'the window to the soul.' Excellent composition!

Put on some Bob Dylan or Tom Waits....save the gas...you just write from the heart and the gut.

Vallerie, don't let despair choose your words unless its what you're writing about! You could have re-titled this verse 'I've got this Site on Poetry right...' and not only been right, but rather forthright. Practise makes poetry perfect, lots. Poetry is hidden within the poet and moves into the poet's words - if you keep them simple without too much structure. Eg: rhyme, rhythm and metre are the poet’s meat and drink but some let structure defeat the expression of simple words. Keep on writing. Ivan
