Just to add. Orangutan=troll

I disagree in that while Winterfox was disagreeable he/she made more concice logical points. Some of which I even agreed with. This guy's just an idiot. He dresses insults up in long sentances (probably grammar/spell-checked by word) but that disguises nothing. They're just rude and quite frankly, pointless.

One word-constructive criticism. Something I would give to the poetry if I actually knew anything about it. Also if I had the time.

One last point: Free-form poetry (for want of a better term) is a valid expression. In fact its pretty much what I prefer to read. The repetition of certain words, buzz or not, is sometimes necessary to emphasise a point.
Rhyme and meter is something you learn in school. Some believe there is actually more to poetry (or anything else) after you leave the strict doctorines of the classroom.

Also monkey-boy, try writing in German.

Sorry to provoke, but many of you know what I'm like.... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

I did write a few things in rhymes and meters back at school, but I found this quite boring, especially since it acted like a corset to my thoughts and feelings I tried to express.

Free verse is my thing, since it doesn't put unnatural constraints over what I want to express. Feelings, emortions and thoughts that don't apply to a pattern like logic are very difficult to be expressed through contraints like a special meter. Some manage to do it, though, and I have very high respect towards those who do (and can). I think, if I tried to write what I want to express in such a way (for example like Shakespeare's Sonnets, to which I have a very high respect), I would end up with *far* more time spending over calculating on how to actually put my words instead of writing freele like in a "thought stream".

If you are interested, I can give you this text : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stream_of_consciousness

I only found this term very recently, so I think it is far more common among Free Verse than people might realize.

Also, it describes very much the way I write.

Beowulf, an example of very different peotry. Not much meters and rhymes, but instead alliterations (also called "Stab-Reime" in German) widely used.

Please try to read the original text aloud : You will perhaps find some similarities (and some irritations) with your own language (if your language is of european origin, that is).
