    no but i find reading it and writing makes me feel good. I guess it's justing getting it off my chest. I dont think i ever have cried reading a poem. i have felt many things but never crying.

    Yes, I enjoy going back and rereading it--mostly because I know what emotions were behind it when the piece was written.

    Yes sometimes as i remember all the memories that come from my poetry and it can be very painful but also its a good way to express how your feeling.x

    I have cried while writing and it was some of my best poetry because my emotion was literally dripping onto the paper.

    Yep. Because of the experience.... and the pain of it..... penning it to paper makes it real again.... but its healing.

    It happened a while ago after writing a poetry advising a set of people. I did do what I advised against. It was very painful when I read that poetry later and felt very saddened.

    Yes, because reading my own poetry reminds me how I had felt at that point.

    Yes. Almost all of my poetry is in the form of love poems to my wife. Last year she passed away. I'm still having a hard time adjusting to life without her.

    Of course, often. One can not be a poet without shedding a tear for what he/she writes. Poetry is life, living, dying and life's experiences.

    I've never cried, but I've gotten emotional re-reading them.  I have this huge mental block against tears.
