FOR THE FREAKING POETRY! GOODNESS SAKES! Haven't you people LEARNED ANYTHING? err..sorry...
A love of poetry. Reading and writing. Giving and getting feedback and other assorted kinds of replies.
The banter in here often creates some form of inspiration. It makes the mind's squeeky joints and wheels move!
Its a place to run, romp, dance, sing, cry, share, pull a shell around ourselves, or surround ourselves with the words and thoughts of like minded people or friends (or both). All with the intent of creating something with words..a feeling..a moment..
This place gives us somewhere to share our words where in our daily lives, they might not be as welcome or well recieved. I have met many people here where I've just moved to now, who say they write poetry and other stuff, but they are the same ones who look at me like I'm nuts when I get all excited about it and start talking about it with them. How WEIRD is that? Geesh.. Soo...I can't find anyone face to face who shares my zest as equally or even more, but there are people here who do. There are people here more willing to give me feedback.
So, what is this place if not an addiction? It is a place where my words belong and a place where I can come to be inspired by all that goes on here. A place of passion and friendships that expand worldwide in an excellent gift of connection on whatever level we could want or need.
I know its different for everyone, and perhaps I haven't really covered all of what it is for me. I think it defies explanation, or perhaps I'm just not very good at making my inner most thoughts truly known. Whatever it is, its excellent, thrilling, and it brings a smile to my face often...so I figure it must be something positive for me, eh?
Hope thats what you were looking for Sven? You know me. One day its simple, and the next day there are too many different parts to count.
