Poetry is a very personal thing. Use inspiration from your life. Something that touched you deeply or a moment that had a profound effect on you. I find poetry that I can emphasise with is good as well.

Why don't you write a poem about being on a sex story site and asking for ideas for a poem? That should be something you can relate to...

Btw...saying you need "help with ideas for my next poem" somehow implies that there was already a poem before...

Just saying...

Your poem posted is a nice read. Clear, illustrative and nice allusion. You speak of layers, talk about your polarity, your sides/layers and how they confront each other. Write about something that just pulls your many sides apart.

Or how they pull you together to make the ever evolving new you.

Question for the poets out there:
Is there a rule on how many lines or word count a poem needs to have in order to remain a "poem"?

How about you pick an emotion and write a poem round it.

Love
Lust
Envy
Greed
Hunger
Flirty

On and on and on the list of emotions go.

Or pick a picture and let it be your guide. Take a walk write a haiku!
Take someone elses poem and rewrite it in your own words. ( you read it, think about what it means to you and write your own poem.)

@ Latin
I'll personally say no.

A poem is something that is written to be recited.

If the poem is very long(I mean closing up on 1000+ words) I would say it needs a clear structure and rythm.
For me to count it as a poem.
But I do not mind 30 min poems, if they're good.

Write about the not having an idea about your next poem.

The smallest poetry style that I am aware of is a haiku. They consists of only 17 syllables and 3 lines - 5, 7, 5.

Not really any length limits, anything from "Madam, I'm Adam" to hundreds and hundreds of lines like Byron's Childe Harold, etc. It takes as many lines as you need to say what you want to. :)

Poetry is the most personal of art forms but if you intend your poems to be read by others, then you should probably give them something substantial to chew on and digest.

I advocate use of punctuation, yes, good old fashioned commas, full stops and caps etc. Grammar too belongs to all genres of English unless you really don't want people to understand what the fuck you're talking about. This will give your poem structure and, dare I say, will mean that other authors will take you seriously.

For me, good poetry is like a beautiful painting - all the elements (words, lines, images, punctuation) have to work in harmony to produce a beautiful whole.

Subjects for poems are many but for me there is only one great theme - love, sex, desire, lust, lushness and the sublime enigma that is woman.

"I've nothing to say today,
Nothing to write, nothing to type,
No one to love, and when push comes to shove
Not a single thing to relay....

"Though my mind whirls
Stormy with thoughts of those lost girls,
Heavy with rain-soaked memories of long gone thrills
As welcome as overdue bills.

"So today, no writing to do,
I shall sit in a state of regret,
And I will be better, but I'm not there quite yet.
I apologise if I have bored you."

xx SF

Sometimes you just need to give yourself a shake and move on...

Let things go, with love, take the lesson

And try harder next time,

There will be a next time...


Have hope, have faith..

Know that you were truly loved.

I would add to that, poetry is more demanding of the writer, than prose. One can write a story, and get away with some verbosity, and diversions down a parallel train of thought. In a good poem, there is not one syllable that is superfluous. Every word has meaning, and contributes to the whole to such an extent that if changed, or removed, something in the meaning or mpact of the poem would be lost.

There is a poem called "Pale Fire" by Vladimir Nabokov (currently my favourite author) and it's got 999 lines, spread over 4 cantos. It's classed as a novel but it's still considered a poem.

I personally think if it's still got the hallmarks of a poem, it's still a poem, regardless of length.

I have just discovered on that there is a smaller form from Burma called a Than Bauk which is three lines of four syllables where the fourth, then third, then second syllables rhyme:

Writing for Lush,
Is a rush, when,
You push yourself.

Hm, not sure if that is a good example. Maybe we should start a new thread!

Just put a new story up called Venus: My Mistress In Leather and Lace. It seems a long time since I have written any prose, been seduced by prosody. Anyway, please feel free to check it out - Thank you xxx
