To the people who write poetry: why do you do it? Also, do you keep it private or share it? When did you get good? I just wrote a crappy first poem recently and it really helped me understand me emotions.

I love Florence Welch’s poetry in her book. I would consider all of her songs to be poetry though.

I haven't written poetry in a long time but when I did it was because I liked reading poetry. I felt like writing it helped me process my emotions like you mentioned. it's kind of like drawing or journaling I guess. I liked to share my poetry but for some people it's too personal. I still never got good at poetry so I can't answer that lol but also there are different styles of poetry.

IDK the name of this one, but the author's name is on the pic. I found it after watching Oldboy and googling the first part bc it sounded so cool to me, but then I ended up liking the whole poem.

"The Two Voices" by Tennyson. My favorite poem.

To me this reads like purple prose. I want to like Woolf so bad but her work is so uninteresting to me.

At the Gate by Henrik Nordbrandt is probably my favorite poem ever. Breaks my heart every time I read it.

ngl i hated mrs dalloway when i first read it. but then something clicked and now i find most other authors a bit bland lol. her writings pretty atmospheric and it helps how #­relatable she is
but maybe posting prose is a bit off topic

Would recommend Olga Broumas. She writes a lot about women, particularly lesbians, in a way that references old myth/fairytales. Some really beautiful stuff. Cinderella is my fav.

Really enjoyed this and was surprised by the date it was written. I wonder how many women back then wanted to express this but couldn't

I heard someone say that poetry shouldn't rhyme because it looks like your word choice is chosen because it rhymes. But if poetry doesn't rhyme what makes it different from prose?

This poem was not written by Hitler, but by Georg Runsky in 1906. It was attributed to Hitler and republished as an act of propaganda.

my favourite poet is elizabeth barrett browning especially her poem 'thec cry of the children'. I love victorian poetry. i like it when poetry rhymes though, i feel like poems are poems because of that musicality
