What poetry is

Written word the soul of the writer!
Not in a form, just written word.
The same as everything else.
Not a poetry hides, but what I feel.
By what I want.
For me, Written word is the very soul of the writer.
The expressive part of the writer.
The part that say's "Hey I like apples!"
Without being asked what that person likes.
Not a place where you need a theme.
because you already have a theme!
That's you, your soul and your hand!
That's why I look for "Free verse" form of a poem!
I don't make poetry I make written word.
