why cant i write such beautiful poems like all of you? is it just not in my heart, or is it just something im not supposed to do? sometimes i will feel a few words come to mind to write down on scrap paper.. but they just disappear in time. it makes me so mad and i always end up stressed.. there are so many feelings inside of me.. that need to be confessed. i love to read your poems, all of them are great.. maybe i've written one i like, but the rest i underrate. its probably my low self worth, or my high self hate.. i dont know why im like this, its probably just my fate.
now this poem is stupid, but i was trying to write another poem and i just couldnt do it and it ticked me off so i ended up writing this boring one instead. sorry everybody..
Well, like Denise said, it happens to us all...Just keep writing, maybe you will find that prose writing is better for you?!?! You never know, either way, continue in this path, anything you have to say, we will love to read. Even if you don't like it, others may...trust me, I have found that out myself
Just be glad I'm not your child! *evil grin*

Hey, you clearly described the frustration you feel when you write poetry. Keep writing about your feelings on something that is important to you. Something you think about a lot. First write down your feelings. How do you really feel about that subject. Think about it for a while if you must. Add some new thoughts. Then weave all those thoughts together into the poem. Keep working with each line until you are happy with the way it sounds. Does it really say what you want it to say. Take care, James

Yep, we all go through this. I wonder if any of us look at our own poetry and think it's wonderful? I know I am always amazed at the replies, that people actually were touched in some way! Keep going and don't give up. Write down your thoughts and keep them in a safe place, you may gather tidbits that would work into a wonderful poem! And don't be sorry!
