I would like to discuss (learn) how to get anger into poems after a experience without letting the anger get the best out of the poem.

I recently had a rather bad experience I need to get out of my system.

All tips and comments are more than welcome, my friends.

I don't know if I'm the "queen" of the rant, but I've been known to have myself a poetic hissy fit or two.

And it'll prolly happen again--but I think as with anything, if you know your subject, it'll help immensely.

Anger is the voice of pain.

Voice the pain underneath, and I think it'll take the edge off--or not.

good luck!

Thanks for your tips, both of you.
I've tried writing all the words but I've never succeed. Although, another go wouldn't hurt.

I am at the level of anger that I wish I could push 80 people off a cliff.

Dear RedNail,

          Why keep your anger out of your poem?  Why not allow your anger to take over your poem?  Is there something wrong with an angry poem?

I do not like thee, Dr. Fell.
The reason why, I cannot tell;
But this I know, and know full well.
I do not like thee, Dr. Fell.

     That's a nice malicious and classic poem.  There are many of them.

     You write the poem your creativity wants you to write.  Any other poem you try to write instead comes out flat as a pancake.  Go with the anger, if that's where your energy is, then revise to take out the places where the energy doesn't remain.  Play with the order of what you have left.

     If you feel sparks of energy between any of the pieces, follow that energy, then revise.  Keep going until you feel you've gotten a sense of completion.  Look it over again for the sense of energy, read it out loud to listen for the energy.  Try it out here, listen to the feedback and go on to the next piece.

     You can try writing something specific, but trying to avoid writing something that has a lot of energy behind it seems like going the long way around the barn to me.

     Good luck with whatever you do decide to do, though.  My best to you, BobK.

Thank you all for your help.

And to you Bob, you made me head turn around.

I hope it will work with everything you've told me, now I just gotta do it without breaking my pencil.

another question, that's not exactly in line with the topic, but whatever.

I am not familiar with the workshop part of this forum, is it possible to post unfinished  poems there if you want help to get further with them, or is that part of this forum just for projects?
