Well Ive been going around passions and all the different forums and ive seen some very kool things. Poetry and prose ranging from all things in life and fantasy. I see different styles and poets experess themselves. Its wonderful.
I was wondering about your feelings about some of the poems you read. wether it be anger, sadness,happiness, love etc...
I feel a great deal of emotions surging through me when I read others poetry, even if i may not understand the full meaning i can feel what they mean, sorta.
so to all the passions family, i ask u your feelings and reactions to the poetry and prose you read?

im not quiet sure i did this right i hope i did

I know what you mean. Sometimes I'll read a carefree poem and I just want to get up and open a window and let the sunshine in, but it's already exploded in my heart just from reading you know?

I love all styles and feel different emotions for each.
Like if I read a poem about suicide I feel the need to comfort that person. I've written a few myself and really all I want is support. So, I give that in a reply.

I also know that I too, probably don't get the exact same feel for the poem the author did, but that's okay. It's just great to read and come away thinking.

hi Regina

As much as possible, i do try to put myself into the poets situation, though it definitely is very hard to do. If not, i try to just understand as much as i can what the poet is trying to convey. I've always said that to me, a poets greatness is measured by how effective he/she is in putting the reader exactly on the writer's position. The poem that could apply to me personally obviously hits me deeper in the heart than poems that don't. Maybe it's the same for a lot of other readers in here, or maybe with you too. Why? I don't know. Maybe cause I have felt it first hand. But most of the time, when all doesn't work the way I'd like it to, I just make my self an open ear for the poem. Just someone they talk to basically.

"So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this give life to thee." W.S.

I am an empath so I feel every word, every line. I find myself crying sometimes when I'm touched...or laughing...and sometimes angry. That's why I love to read. When I read a novel, I'm IN that novel. I lose track of time and will often read it in one sitting if it's good. Good topic!

I feel maybe not exactly like, but a little bit like the writer when any poem has been written. If I relate to it I remeber the feeling I had in that situation. And sometimes, those feelings inspire me to write poems myself.

I usually try to become the writer.....USUALLY.....but not all the time. Sometimes I feel a bit deattached from the world......and even myself.
So yea, but usually I just feel everything.

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily
