never read poems before, not sure i even write poems, but I would have to say, my life, my family, friends, and what I see and hear.. I use my senses to write. so I guess me. but since im not a true writer, I just kind of write whats in my thoughts or mind. relatinships inspire me as well, good or bad, same with life. good or bad... I write about things I experianced, or know of or something closely related like that.
