Actually, from all I know and have learned in the ten years I have been a poet, I would like what. I could simply free associate, a spill if you will, which is one way to mix up the answers with something totally different, but I do not know exactly to clue you in on some

tread  by Un-dugJones
Suggester: I love the way this begins –
it's so true of writing – and after that I
couldn't stop reading. There is a subtle, yet
strong pulse of emotion underneath it. I agree;
it has such marvelous commentary and whirls you in.

Farewell, sad past! - it.s.all.in.hell.s.head on peperonity.com
Suggested by NyanQueen
Looking back at who used to be
Two very much alike ladies
Staring at opposite faces
One smiling brightly
at the other's sad face
younger by only half a year or so
and with deep gashes in her arms
mirrored only as scars on the elder's
Behind the younger
Stretches out a dark room,
curtains drawn to keep out life
The elder turns,
skipping off to
the moonlit fields before her
And as she dances around
the younger

Questions
  
1. Tell us a bit about your writing.
As most people already here know, I'm predominantly a poet who dabbles in prose when forced--poetry has always come much more naturally to me than fiction, which is very irritating seeing as it's not the one that sells. Ideas strike me most often not out of visual scenes my own experience but from the random qu

On Psychology by MattVoscinar
This multi-faceted piece examines the origins
of belief and how they may seem antithetical to one’s
own behavior, and often appearing to defy the influence
of one’s surroundings.

Life is Fine - Langston Hughes
Suggested by airehkah
I went down to the river,
I set down on the bank.
I tried to think but couldn't,
So I jumped in and sank.
I came up once and hollered!
I came up twice and cried!
If that water hadn't a-been so cold
I might've sunk and died.
     But it was      Cold in that water!      It was cold!
I took the elevator
Sixteen floors above the ground.
I thought about my baby
And thought I would jump down.
I stood there and I hollered!

PoetryToTheMasses
Founder: Quen Wright
United Kingdom
PoetryToTheMasses is a place to feature the best poetry from on or off deviantART in order to encourage people who wouldn't usually enjoy poetry to find something they like. Poetry has become viewed as the art form of sissies and emos, and our aim here is to start making it popular again.

There is a P2TM group: Poetry-To-The-Masses

So, if you like poetry, please watch us. If you don't think poetry's your thing, we insist you watch us and give it a try.

Please read the rules before suggesting: poetry-to-the-masses.deviantar…
