    Yes, very much so. I enjoy both writing it and reading it.

    I tend not to like the flowery kind, though.

    Poems should contain and convey emotional depth and meaning by way of the poet's economical selection of words.

    Less is more.

    Some of it is good, and some of it is bad.

    I enjoy it when I read it, but more often I choose other things to do.

    I like poetry but I hardly read it, when I do it is fun to pick it apart. Although, I write potential song lyrics when I am inspired but other then that it isn't very often. Maybe I just haven't found the write stuff to look at that has captured me besides song lyrics.

    Lyrics are poems.

    Lyricists are poets.

    I tend to not like music with lyrics in it, either, or at least I don't like music with lyrics that I can understand. That's why I tend to like black metal, because the lyrics seem to become part of the instrumental part. And when you can't understand it, it becomes more abstract. It's more about the emotion of the musical tone, and it paints pictures in the mind.

    I can't help listening to the lyrics. The songs I love best have lyrics I can identify with. I love words. I just don't have the patience for written or spoken poetry. With songs, the words have music to add to the emotion and give color. Lacking that, my main feeling about poetry is usually that I wish they would get to the dang point. Spit it out, already!

The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    So I'm guessing that the whole purpose of poetry is just to sound pretentious.

    to me I always see poetry as different then lyrics...

    Maybe it would be better to say I don't pick up a book of poetry and start reading it for pleasure. Instead I examine other lyrics to songs, or by reading a book about writting lyrics so that I can learn. I do stand in awe of what other people can do and I desire to get that musical side of me out. That gives me enjoyment because I know I have the potential to do so as well. It is just that part of me that sparks alot of excitment when I complete it.

    Anyways, poetry is great, but difficult to understand sometimes

    Not necessarily. The way the words are used can be an art form that adds a lot of meaning and feeling and, depending on the form of poetry, it can be like writing a puzzle. It's not that I don't appreciate the concept. I do. I just don't enjoy it.
