I have been writing (mostly bad) poetry since I was 21. This is very odd considering I absolutely hate poetry. Poetry drives me up a wall. As a form of writing, it tends to be overly impressed with itself. If someone wishes to say something, it's best just to come out and say it instead of tying it up in uselessly colorful words that confuse the entire situation.
So . . . now that I've gone on a rant about how much I dislike poetry . . . Let's get back to the fact that I write it. *sigh* The fact of the matter is, poetry is a very useful tool for writers. It's a way to get concepts, images and ideas onto paper and experiment with words. It's also awesome for saying lovey-dovey-gushy stuff.
Please understand that this was written before I was writing consistently. The technical merits of the writing are . . . non-existent. It could be written much better, but I'm not going to edit it. I figure this will keep me from becoming too impressed with myself if I hit it big. ;)
