About Me and My Poetry

Poetry is simply a way with words. We all have different styles and different subjects that make us unique. If there is one thing I have learned off of this site, it is that do not let people's opinions of your poetry get you down. I got bad reviews for a poem on here that made it into a statewide contest. As long as you like it, it is awesome.

I dreamt that you left me in the silence of night.
Betrayed my love-- my love denied.
I bowed my head-- oh, how I cried!
