I don’t understand poetry

I don’t understand poetry
Poetry is just not for me
I’ve tried my hands on it,
but the words just don’t fit

I don’t appreciate poetry
Every attempt is a eulogy
I keep writing about a girl
Then into the trash I hurl

I really don’t follow poetry
I’m handicapped, you see?
I pity each and every line
conforming to rhythm, rhyme

You say poetry makes life fun
But I don’t see how that’s done

  1. Pramodh,

    The poem is beautifully composed. Although rhyming is efficiently done, the content is lacking in energy. Both the theme and the technique are important. Keep on writing. But after quite a few are written, look back and read them. You will find where and how to improve.
