Hey, I know it'll be a while before you'll see this, but I'm gonna say this anyways 'cause I like to leave comments. =P And I want to read your poetry anyways. =P

I read Verily. The imagery and power of the piece were awesome. However, I'm a bit confused about the structure.


Shattered amidst the dark walls,
tall, strong, full of doubt
weakly a tattered thought falls.

Grime smeared floor reaches out
grasping, smothering,
Infusing thought with unending doubt.

When I first read these lines, I thought you were doing a terza rima poem (ABA, BCB, ect, until it ends in one line, in this case, a simple C) However, when I ventured further, I realized that it wasn't what you were doing... I felt a bit... misled... I suggest you change the bolded line so that it doesn't rhyme with the stanzas of the next lines if you are just going for ABA, CDC, ect. Makes it less confusing for people like me. Of course, that's just my opinion since I'm retarded about poetry structures...

Overall, it was very amazing! My poetry structure stupidity is my own fault...

EDIT: Almost forgot to do this. I claim this page in the name of sanity. Dunno why. Just a random claim...

Ahh, poor Firefly. *patpats and snugs*

Structure....I have no idea what poetic structure is, what it is named and what it entails. Ask Clyde. I write and whatever happens, happens. I wrote the first stanza of Verily and what you see is what came about. The first and third lines rhyme. The second line is 5 syllables that contain words that support the thoughts of lines 1 and 3. I highly doubt that is a "structure" listed in any book.

As to changing the second line of stanza one...I like and greatly desire that those words and phrase be used there, but any re-arrangement of them disrupted the rhythm of the second line.

Sometimes I follow a set structure and sometimes it is the wild imaginings and freakish stuff that comes out of my brain. And then there are my acrostics, free verse and blank verse...

Blank verse - someone once said I write blank verse. I have yet to look it up to see what that means. Perhaps I should.

According to my understanding, blank verse is poetry with structure but without rhyme. I might be wrong, but I might not be...

Good for you for not following structure. My poetry is dying in the modern world due to its structuredness.

Spontaneous poem written on IRC after Amboo decided to post a poem about silence because it was...well...silent in channel.

Glad you finished it. Just finished reading it and I love it, quite meaningful and easy to get. Naturally I have no idea on what makes a good song but if someone asks I will refer them to this song.

Anywho thanks for posting it up.

That was really beautiful. I love your language. Only thing negative to say isn't really negative to say isn't really negative, just that it seems on the shorter side for lyrics, though it could be a song with music rather than words dominant in which case, it's fine.

Another one. Hopefully more uplifting. Sequel to Close Yourself Up.

What You Do Have

And Oh, you will see a lot of poetry from me for the next 9 weeks. I am practicing my skills for my poetry class I am teaching. So each week will feature a new type of poetry. This week is rhyme schemes.

That poem was magnificent! The genious rhymes and the emotions. I could hear the auhtor sing this ballad and I loved it.

...I won't comment on the haiku's...I don't like haiku's.

Thank you Garnet, Brynn and Sairex. You guys are awesome.

And I am assuming that Garnet, since you've claimed that you've read my newest, you have read the one I didn't add to my comments thread.

Here is one of the poems from Week#2 in class. We explored several different rhyme schemes found by published poets. The assignment was to pick out 2 rhyme schemes that we studied or create your own. I picked AABAB. SO, yeah, here it is.
