I have written a few. I write as a creative outlet. anyone else do the same? However it means nothing if no one enjoys them. so feel free to read them.
I enjoy poetry
With cool flavors on my tangue
Although poetry is not lickable
Like a sweet chocolate
I can still taste it with my mind
Do't let your pen
To run out
Keep it full with ink
that never dry up
as if it is supplied with infinite source
Poetry is beautiful .. My colorful spirit runs so free... Like ocean waves on a deep blue sea... Keep on writing as it heals the inner soul.. Taking you to another dimension before losing control...
though I am new to this page, I'll soon be posting poems on here that is breathtaking...
If writing is a creative outlet for you... then why does it concern you as to whether or not others enjoy it?
Some of the best poetry that I have read.. I have hated at first.
Good luck with your goals here.
Interesting.. As with all creation in this world. It needs to be viewed, enjoyed, shared. for if it is not. then it is no longer an outlet. does that about cover it?
You are right - if we only write for ourselves then we don't need to publish it, just put it in a forgotten draw with the other stuff of sentimental value - but no other value.
I hear ya' on the creative outlet part. See...Men can "bring-it" with the Poetry! (Shoot...juz' look at all the men on Hub Pages...that can "bring it" with the Poetry thang! Poetry is a gift if you can harness its' energy...and if you can...then more power to ya'!

I'm going to shoot on over to your view some of your works...Best of success in Hublandia...Our Poetry Hub Home!
I have just written another. from what I have been reading. poetry has a wide range.
Welcome to HubPages and Welcome to the Forum. Do have a great time.
I dabble as a way of seeing what I can come up. I set up a blog for "storing" them. Welcome to HubPages.
i think i love poetry, writing it and reading it
1. because i love the written word, but have a very big problem with concentration, and find long hubs hard to get through.
2 I feel everything so deeply ..... poetry is a great outlet for ones emotions.
3 It is a great way of communicating. Hard to make money from, that is not my intention anyway
So yes for me a huge thumbs up for poetry.I
i wonder as a poet we have no restrictions .how do we rate if a poem is good
Poetry does have restrictions - there are rules for certain kinds of poetry that make it what it is, and breaking those rules makes other poems what they are.
Without any structure or understanding of the rules poetry becomes something else that does not speak in the same way any more, it has no depth. Long winded expounding of weird thoughts in what looks like poetry is just people letting off wind and trying to disguise it as poetry, often these people think it is 'powerful' or 'insightful' when in fact it is just a rant.
Emotional outpourings are closer to poetry and fulfil a need of the writer to get some good or bad stuff out - just telling some things is not good enough sometimes and the feeling that the emotions are amplified by looking like a poetic form is satisfying.
Many people have many different ideas of what makes good poetry but mostly they are confusing what they like with a definition, rap music style is about in the middle between non-poetry and poetry - it kinda is and kinda isn't in a way.
Maybe the only thing that makes poetry good is whether it means more to you than what it is directly saying.
I think you are full of it like so many professors. Sorry. No I'm not either. It needed to be said. I hate poetry.
Hate - or don't understand? I have a brother in law who actively campaigns against any form of public art - he does not see anything in it at all. He says he hates art generally.
I have checked out Mewlhouse and can't find any hub that you describe - but then I got reading his great poetry.
Maybe you just prefer real stuff, that you can physically handle etc ?
He removed that great essay. Dam. He is a great man and I respect him a lot. I understand poetry, I write some of that crap myself, but I hate it in the sense that it has such a wicked hold onto my skinny barb-wired-soul. Now, you understand?
I find it easier to express my true feelings in poetry than in my other writing. Although poetry has rules-it also allows for one to use more word play and express their ideologies or abstracted thoughts with satire without explaining in depth as to make perfect sense-but rather leave the words up for each person’s compression of the writing. When expressing youself by writing a story, recollection or thought it needs to flow in some manner so that the reader can place events, situations and outcomes in order to make sense of the story or idea being described. Where as poetry allows the writer to focus more so on the emotions not the 'story or recollection’ or even having a complete thought or justification within the poetry.
Not entirely sure if I made any sense with all of that, maybe I should have written a poem in response and not attempted to express a complete thought
Poetry is many things.... heaven in
it's stroking of loves soft skin.
And in the telling of leaving hearts
not ever to return again.
Or the fall of an empire where gods
vengeance speaks to man.
And in the raising of child
with kindness and gentle hand.
It's about soldiers...a line of candles
dieing in a blowing wind.
And too ...the hold of a
mistress' breath locked forever in.
And forever are the words written
on tablets of grey stone.
For me though.. heart words slowly
pulling me away from alone.
