    Ok I have just started having fun with poetry. If it is not your genre give it a try. I wanted to stop writing rhyming poems. It is effortless to write such poems , but I am not sure how seriously they are taken by people who read poetry for substance. Anyway, a good way to practice writing emotional word art is to take a picture off one of the free to use sites like morquefile and write one and two word descriptions. . Try to avoid sentences. Share your results. Just post it on your hub account and that way we can all see the results.

      I'll post one here! I'm a naturally non rhyming poet.

      Today was a wrangle
      of bills unpaid and phone calls unanswered,
      kids wanting cheesecake and refunds gone missing,
      so I went to the pub instead.

        That is good.  I really like the 'wrangle' line. It is a very different way of saying dreadful day or unproductive...

    Ok just of the top of my head

    Why is permission needed to go to bed
    It is my House
    I use too much coffee
    Leave empty things in the frig
    Keep you from your jobless schedule
    Why are you here
    If I am so unappealing

    Ok I almost made that not rhyme

    Falling down drunk
    I move through the dark kitchen
    The bitch hits me with a toaster
    She's crazy I tell you
    Gotta get rid of those small appliances
    My life depends on it
    Shouldn't have slept with her sister
    Cause she's crazy...crazy I tell you

    There was a young woman from Boston, Mass.
    Who stood in the ocean up to her ankles.
    It doesn't rhyme.
    But in 12 hours,
    It will.

      A trip to the ocean is planned I see. Don't let a lobster bite your toe!

    Why do my poems always rhyme
    No matter what I do?
    Each line seems to end the same,
    No matter how I try.
    Rhyme just always fills my mind,
    It's just the way I think.
    Even when I'm writing prose,
    It's back to rhyme I s...(revert).
