I know a lot of people "don't get it" when I write something.
There are times when I wanted very much to convey a particular point, so I deliberately simplified my layered metaphors, etc., but then, I thought, well isn't it condescending of me as an author to decide the intellectual/empathetical capacity of my readers? But sometimes I still do write very simply--and I'm trying harder to do that, as I admire very much the ability to convey a lot in a few words. I don't want to force my readers into a corral--I like their interprations to play a part as well--like a dance, or making love.
That brings me to another style of writing, that is closer to the term, "slam" poetry, which more like um, stream of consciousness, which sometimes APPEARS to be pointless.
These, though, I really don't care if anyone "gets" it or not. My only goal when I write those (and I do have a goal) is to sweep my readers into my realm, and hopefully, make them forget that they are reading.
My first goal being to shake someone up, and feel, for one moment, what I was feeling as I wrote it.
Then (sometimes) I edit, so that it hopefully makes intellectual sense as well.
None of this is written in stone either, it's just my way of writing.
Hopefully as I find my voice, I find my style, and when I find my style, I hope I don't become so attached to it that I won't dare to stray into other realms.
Reading poetry and poets you like is the best way to begin.
I also believe quite firmly that form poetry, even though most of it is done quite badly. (I shudder when I read olde English, not 'dissing anybody, but only someone like, say Essorant, should use that.) I still think it should be studied, and attempted--it just adds more tools to your writing chest.
And then...smile, I try to eliminate "myself" from the process--which is damned near impossible.
Then I edit myself back in.
I love it though, when I can entice my readers to travel with me and feel.
That is the most satisfying result for me.
My absolute, all time favorite reply is one word:
I like that. Alot.
