WHAT IS POETRY TO YOU?

Writing has been my friend for a long time now and what I love most about it is how there are different styles of doing it, making every writer different from each other.

I’m currently thinking about my love for poetry. If you have been following this blog for quite some time, you might already know how I am a sucker for poetry, and that is why poetry blogs are instant follow for me. I love puzzle solving, I love dissecting writings, especially poetry when there are thousands of meanings behind it. And that is why I also enjoy constructing poetry. I am not really good at explaining my thoughts and emotions but I am good at hiding it lol. And that is what you can do with poetry, with just a few words you can take it how you want it. When you’re a reader of poetry, you can interpret it in your own words and thoughts. There’s no right or wrong explanation to it, unless the writer itself reveals it which most poets usually don’t reveal the true meaning of their poetry. From that, I got more comfortable in writing and opening up without going in full details. I can use any figure of speech and hide my emotions well in it. That is why poetry to me is expressing unexpressed emotions and saying unsaid thoughts. It’s quite fulfilling to create something and share it but still having your own meaning to it, it’s being open but also keeping something to yourself.

I’m leaving this post with a little poetry that I finished along side this blog post. Let me know your thoughts about it and I hope you’ll like it 🙂


LEGACY

You have seen the thousand sides of me
like room full of mirrors, confusing to see.
Wider spectrum of personas and moods,
rushing to be seen and to be understood.
I may ripped the walls that was vandalised
but it will never cover up all the told lies
that was lived in life like it was the truth,
damaged and messed up my entire youth.
You have seen it all from different sides
what is inside my mind, I will confide.
One trusted friend of my intricate living,
there you’ll be, the legacy of my being.


For all of you reading this, what is poetry to you? Share it in the comments. 😊

  1. I like this a lot. Poetry (both subject and structure) is a part of you. When you read a poem you wrote years ago, It opens up your previous self.Being picky –
    “all. the lies…that was” -“which were?”
