real poetry

you just can't sit down
and write this stuff
you have to look deep
inside of us
some poets are weak
while others are strong
sometimes emotions
just seem to hold on
when we give 
the best that we can
and a tear that lived
on a cheek for a span
name the price
no one can
not for all the 
money in the world
will we let this feeling
go unheard.
so we gather our sences
our heart and our pride
and we let the world know
what we feel inside.
yes with poetry and words that rhyme
how else can we steal their time
we must look pretty for the wanting minds
and sound magnificant without a doubt
to a world without eyes 
where ears will melt
words carefully chosen 
and feelings are felt
we turn cowards into heros
and make lovers of the unloved
we solve the mysteries of the mind
and carry messages form heaven above
words on paper, much much more
an inspiration and a way to adore

    The truth of our emotions sometimes are hard to write. To get beyond the welled up pain is too much of a blight. That being said, I have to wonder how someone really does it. Reaching inside, spilling their guts like it don't hurt a bit. Please don't take my comments too literally. I like to rhyme. :) Great write john. Congrats on the placement. Peace. :)

    awesome description of how and why we write as poets, john. I agree with you, a woman who would make a man wait in the hot sun like that is terrible. I just made up the story because I imagine some girls would do such a thing. However, if the girl was not able to see the guy for a long time , maybe she was not even home yet, I think it would be utterly romantic if he waited like that for her!!

    people can talk all they want and still have left no impact. words just spill out of their mouth's with no point to them; just empty conversation. the beauty of real poetry is that, like you said, " . . . feelings are felt . . ." and this sensation it may evoke change. VERY good job! Continue writing <3

    you're a captivating man, John. there's a... between the romantic yet cynic that playfully adorn your moods, makes curiosity flair :)

    Very well said my friend. I do like a poem that has a message, not just a bunch of pretty words that mean nothing. They must tell a story or have a message to impart. Not really big on explicit sex. That is not a romantic poem it's just talking dirty and calling it "art". If you want a romantic poem make it pretty and talk about feelings and emotion. It's a heap more fun to think about it than to have it shoved in your face. (smile) A fine write here John. Great job. God Bless, JB
