Dont Structure my Free Verse Please

Both enjoyable to read yet syllable counting and metering Are not for me they tend to bend my mind and intertwine Where I feel free to bend the rules with free verse poetry A particular rhythm and rhyme takes up to much of my time Free verse sets me free to think and write at the same time Not worrying about structuring a verse with rhythm and rhyme Calculating thinking and structuring limits me all at the same time forgetting the thought’s I wanted to write down All and all both are equal and fun Choose one or the other it is your choice, not mine Contest: Free Verse vs Structured Sponsored by: Line Gauthier Date Created: 11/16/2019 My Birthday

WoW! Bobby I share some of the same thoughts. I believe both forms are good, however I tend to lean more toward the "free verse" for the reasons you wrote about. I wish you the best of luck in the contest. Have a great day:-) Alexis

I feel the same...i struggle with forms, it limits my train of thoughts, though others feel the same about free verse, we all have certain forms that we excel in... good write Bobby :) hugs
