Poetry is something I do to try and understand the emotions and voice in the back of my head. It's highly therapeutic for me just now, and as a result my work isn't always nice or happy. Sometimes it's quite brutal. But I feel poetry is a multi-faceted tool that should reflect all aspects of life, both good and bad, so this isn't necessarily a negative thing. I am still learning, so bear with me. My aim is to try and produce something accessible to everyone, but also meaningful to me. I also want to make my poetry less insular and more outward looking. Hopefully I'm on the right path with at least some of these goals. Please comment to let me know how I'm getting on.
" Last breath twisting of my lungs, last time in my eyelid her shadow pinched,a long delay in my heart beat will prove me as I'm no longer, she will far across Nile river collecting rubies and I will near Ganges river with melody of death" ........................................................................................................................................................... I am walking on a road which ll go in a world wherr there ll be full of peace and light. There i ll sit under a tree which ll be covered by green grasses and flowers smelling a specific smell. No one ll be there to bother me with my work. Me and my poem forever with a happy ending.
Richard Withey currently resides in a mental asylum; incarcerated by his mind he occasionally makes up stories and peculiar tales of characters that have escaped into his thought processes and become part of his written words. Occasionally he will write the odd poem that helps his angst with the dissatisfaction and injustices of the world, sometimes the poems can be quite 'loved up' as well displaying a lovely ying-yang approach to the typical mental illness that is usually rage and/or then catatonia that seems to be the norm for loonies these days. He has also delved into the world of singer/songwriter, this generally occurs in the wee, small hours and involves copious amounts of alcohol, these songs can be found on SoundCloud under Grim Peepers (and he apologises in advance if any slurring can be heard). He would like to thank you in advance for taking time to read his fictional adventures, ramblings and adventures and hopes he can at least bring a smile, tear, grimace or joy to your person for a small (or longing) time. Thanks for reading, and constructive comments and compliments are very welcome ;) x
Just a young girl trying to start poetry. Most of my poems are serious while others... Not so much. I am still, until 2018, in highschool, for i am a 2018 year graduate. Most of my poems will be from how i feel, for i have depression and sucidal thoughts/action. Others will be from my classwork. Hope you enjoy my work (:

Hello My name is Ricky and I love poetry. I have had a act for it since i was little and I thought it was about time to share it with the world! My poems are the true facts on life. The true damages a human can endure the realism of the tortures one endures. If you don't like what you read i respect your choice.. But those who allow my words to reveal a story please enjoy.
Hi people! I am here because I love writing poetry. It is one of my passions as well as art, photography and writing. You can find my stories and some of poems on my wattpad too: http://www.wattpad.com/user/WhiteSnowflakes123 You can also find some here: http://whitesnowflakes123.deviantart.com So, my great grandfather was a poet. Poetry runs in the family, although my dad and I are the only ones who really write it. For school projects, I go and re-read my great grandfathers published poetry tips which I find really helpful. I occasionally read his poems again too. My great grandma was an artist. My mum does art for fun as well. Photography, well my uncle does that. You never see him, because he is always in the background. He does a lot of work. He is very skilled and gives me tips all the time. Sometimes we make movies together with my brother. He has met many famous people, mostly football players and their coaches. For example, all the Real Madrid players and their old coach meriño or whatever. So yes, our family is Spanish. He has also met some Barcelona players, I'm pretty sure. Anyways. I'm here for poetry. Please tell me what you think.
“I am a dedicated person with a family of four. I enjoy reading, and the knowledge and perspective that my reading gives me have strengthened my teaching skills Land Rover Repair service skills and presentation abilities. I have been successful at raising a family, and I attribute this success to my ability to plan, schedule, and handle many different tasks at once. This flexibility will help me in the classroom, where there are many different personalities and learning styles.” “People find me to be an upbeat, self-motivated team player with excellent communication skills. For the past several years I have worked in lead qualification, telemarketing, and customer service in the technology industry. My experience includes successfully calling people in director-level positions of technology departments and developing viable leads. I have a track record of maintaining a consistent call and activity volume and consistently achieving the top 10 percent in sales, and I can do the same thing for your company.”
I'm just a junior in high school that has never attempted poetry before this year. I'm open to any sort of criticism and would love for people to critic my poems so i can grow in the art. I don't, at least haven't, restricted myself to just one form of poetry. I just like to write how i feel in the moment, not how I think other people want to hear about how I feel.

As a Poet I must admit I am a student and admirer of the late Langston Hughes as well as many other poets and writers from different walks of life. I always enjoy writers that use poetry as a voice to speak out about social and spiritual issues. My poems are usually my inner expression of thoughts that I experience while on this spiritual journey called life.
