I know my soul is a complex of ballads &odes,
A barn where harvested poems are stacked,
But let me stare into your eyes, my fair one,
For there are sonnets scribbled therein,
Written in verses of infernous passion
& If only you’d affix your hands in mine,
We will become an anthology of poems,
To be read by our estranged lovers-
The ones who promised to be rainbows
To scare away the floods of gloom,
But left when clouds gathered in our eyes.
The curvy figures of speech may become amoebic,
For I have seen metaphors, melt like candle wax
And oxymoron, made morons out of poets;
But if we superimpose and become one poem,
&heated arguments tear us apart &break us into lines,
Even After enjambments have tried in vain to keep us together,
My fair one, we will surely be re-united by verses.

When it comes to writing poetry, the new cool is to write something so cryptic and difficult to critique.
The message/artistic beauty is often lost in the poet's desire to put out something grand.
Billy Collins says clarity is the real risk. One that many are not willing or confident enough to take, for fear of criticism or standing 'naked' in front of their audience.
We want you to know that you're not putting out sub-standard poems just because yours is simple and relatable!
