My ‘Poetry’

Some commentors have suggested my poetry is good. I really appreciate this complment, but I’d just like to say why I think it isn’t very good.

I do English Literature at college, so I know a little about poetry. Poetry I’ve read includes innumerable metaphors, evocative images, and subtle description. Mine includes no metaphors, simple images and obvious, plain descrption. There’s no sense of subtlety whatsoever.

That’s why my ‘poetry’ isn’t really poetry, it’s really just my thoughts put into a poetic structure. I might as well just write it as a story rather than a poem.
