This is not a poem

I cannot write poems of love
Love needs a certain passion
I am driven only by gluttony

This is not even a poem
Why does it have to be?
If I write it in this fashion
And, call it a poem
Does it become poetry?

What is this,
if not a poem?
A question
An answer
A rant, maybe
A dry mind, for sure

But, if I don’t know how
to write poetry
This is
what a poem just might be

  5. This is great!! I think poetry is in the mind of the writer. All poetry rules are meant to be broken, taped together, and recycled. So maybe this is a poem, maybe it’s not…it’s up to you :-). All I know is that I enjoyed it!!!

    1. Oh wow, that is a incredible way to put it and how very true – “poetry is in the mind of the writer.” πŸ™‚
      It is indeed a poet’s interpretation of the poem that makes it what it is. Thank you so much for that lovely and positive outlook! πŸ™‚
      I’m pleased to find that you enjoyed it! Much love! ❀
