    Nothing wrong in your writing as I see it, I have enjoyed it. But if you decide you want to change, why not try copying the styles of some of the well known poets that you enjoy? Look at their rhyme schemes, the pacing, etc. I'm sure there must be some books out there that talk about poetry writing techniques. But, the main thing, like Rich said, sometimes you just have to be able to relax enough, and trust enough, to let yourself flow. I had stopped writing poetry, for many years, and when I got back into it, that was the hardest thing for me to do...just to relax and let the words drip. Peace.

    Ok Daroc. Who is driving the bus? You are. So when you get ready to write, you must take the wheel, and all your passengers us on a trip, to a location only you have a map and directions to. Then write for Daroc. Does the story, make you laugh. Does it excite you when the thought comes to mind. Have you heard a great comment, or something you read make you :hot: or take you off on a tangent. While writing, :look: around, relax take a break, and let yourself be driven. Moved. While flowing with it.

    No special words. No special majic. Just you. :rolling: Enjoy the :spinn:

    First let me say, you brought this to life. Sounds like many good people gave you you some very good advice. You too may be impatient as you said in your post.

    " i guess u can jus say im either bored wit my style or inpatience... and i sit up here.. at this computer and read all these poems and be like... dang.. i likes that.. y cant i make it feel smooth like that.. or make it seem like the words are creatin they own dream... "

    I like this. This brought your post to life. Have you ever been in love? Have you ever been hurt? Have you ever been ridiculed? Have you ever been late?

    These passions and feeling you get just from living makes that flow you want to perfect. See we are telling you we can't experience your passion, but thru your work, and lifes journey and experiences. You will flow. Keep :spank: ing this thing. Never give up the effort. I have read some of your post. I found them very passionate and they flowed well. I like your pen on one knee. Visualize. Visualize.. then Visualize again. Give your characters, dimension. Give your thoughts places. Add the weather you love and hate. Blow the winds, and stand in the rain. How many times have you stood outside and stared at the moon at night. Glared at stars, listened to silence. Silence is very loud. Thunder is loud, but silence makes a loud clamor. Its a loud and sustained noise. You can measure it, its called white noise. Stand in the dark. How does that make you feel? What scares you. Only you have seen and felt what needs to be expressed to your readers. Flow on Daroc. You were and still are poet laureate.
