Beowulf 26 (which might me a great title for a poem: Beowulf 26 Grendel ?),
I did comment on your poem at Critical Analysis but received no response (What's up with that?).
I'm going to take a slightly different path than those who have written before me, writing your emotions and what interests you is only, only the first step. The second step is read, read, read. Find out what you like to read and think about what it is that you like. Then, write, write, write. Then, rewrite, rewrite, rewrite. Then, read again.
Actually, this isn't chronological; this should all be done at the same time (but that reads kind of wierd, doesn't it?).
I also believe that discussion creates improvement; talk about poems. No, not compliments or insults but an actual engagement with each poem. At most sights I've perused I've seen a fear of actually telling people what you liked and disliked in a poem. It's so much easier to compliment or to insult than to work with a poem in detail. Time is always a problem of course but even a little engagement can go a long way.
Acquarius, there are reasons that cliches don't work in poems. Do you want to talk about it?
Again, emotion and feeling are only the first step in my opinion.
