    poems don't necessarily have to have a rhyme.

    well. just look at certain poems, they don't really have a sense of rhyme. nursery rhymes however, do, as well as haiku's. most contemporary poems do not have a rhyming scheme, and are descriptive lines that tell a story or describe something.

    ^Actually, that's wrong, too. Most of the haikus I've read never rhyme. They always describe something, mostly nature and stuff like that.

    I don't write a lot of poems and stuff these days, but it's always fun to see my old stuff and remember those moments of childhood bliss.

    I have a new banner! What do you all think? Made by yours truly ^^

    As I wander along this path of life
    I see upon me a sign of truth
    Everything that is, will one day end end
    Thus now is the time, to live life true

    No rhymes there. but the rythm is there, and that is generally more important. Though modern and post-modern poetry often throw aside every structural rule there is.
    "People like you and me overcame the Neanderthals. People like you and me overcame the Ice Age"

    "You can hold [the brain] in the palm of your hands - and it can contemplate the vastness of interstellar space"

    "Along some paths of cosmic discovery there are times when, at least for now, one must be content to love the questions themselves"

    Thanks, LL. I like your sig banner, too. I don't have a banner shop or anything, I make banners for myself. It's more of a hobby I guess.

    Death is upon us all,
    from the moment we are born.
    Yet the experiences in the middle
    are what keep us from living in scorn.
    Infants we come into this world,
    helpless and cute to the eye.
    But experienced human beings,
    are what we are when we die.
    So now I ask you why death isn't in our heads,
    and the thought barely comes as life goes on.
    Because the experiences in the middle are what make life "life",
    surely that is not wrong?


    Really quick little poem that I just thought of, what do you think?

    @Red; It's a little off rythm-wise, and could use some more symbolic language, but otherwise good ;)

    So what's the difference between just normal writing and poetry then?

    @Stellar Haze; Poetry is supposed to show the aestheic qualities of writing, through rythm, rhyme, metaphors and symbolic language. It often resorts to an unnatural flow of words in order to create rythm, and thus often ignores grammar. "Normal writing" - that is, prose - is defined by grammatical boundaries, and does not have the same focus on the "poetic" qualities of language; it is devised to tell a story with a grammatically sound language and a natural flow of words ("natural" as in how we would normally speak it out loud).

    I used to think I couldn't do poetry, I mean the first time I tried was just horrible. But two yours later I tried again, and I actually made a good poem, it was one that described a RP character I was using, it came out descriptive and it rhymed. I would've posted it... If I hadn't lost it.

    COMING SOON!

    Ooh, we're talking about poetry? I love writing poetry, and every now and again I go on a little spree. Unlike writing prose, which I can usually force myself to sit down and do, poetry comes and goes on a whim. I'll show you one I wrote a while ago, since we're all in the sharing mood. (Spoiler'd because it's a few stanzas long.) It's called From A Wise Man.

    I used to write poetry. But I gradually became more interested in doing stories. The first serious thing I wrote, though, was a poem about the moon. That was back in fifth grade and my teacher thought it was pretty good. xP

    I also once tutored an old friend in poetry and wrote him a poem for a Secret Santa. Though this was for a short time. Why? That friend... *sniff* He died of cancer later that March. This is one reason why I can't bear to write another poem. It brings back that grief. He wasn't a close friend, but it still took me awhile to get over. He was a well-respected person. He left behind a wife and four kids (I think), one of which wasn't born yet.

    So yeah. I lost interest in poetry, and am only a fiction writer now. I don't do nonfiction, though I may get ideas for my stories from real life experiences.
