Imitations

i wish

my poetry

was something different

than what it is.

maybe more raw

like

bukowski

or more lovely

like

atticus

or more philosophical

like

e.e. cummings.

but it is what i have

and i give

my all to it

and maybe someday

someone will wish

their poetry was

like

mine.

  2. I wish my poetic knowledge was like yours. I only have about a year and a half of interest in poetry. I’ve been focusing on writing rather than reading. But I envy you for that. Plus, I love your poetry. There’s no room for it to be better or worse. It is for what it is.

  3. And also, for your poems to suddenly switch to a Bukowski-esque style… that would be a sight to see πŸ˜‚. Just down a bottle of wine and channel your inner horn dog and your good βœ”οΈβœ”οΈ.

    1. this made me smile and laugh all at once XD you’re a sweetheart for saying so–thank you. the same for you, honestly. your writing is very deep and i wish mine were more so.
      lol, is there a female bukowski around to model my writing after instead? in this day and age, i wouldn’t be surprised πŸ˜‰ xx

  4. this is something everyone who finds themselves writing poetry often thinks of but honestly I feel that we’re all just supposed to have different tints or folds which makes us a little more unique. Nobody likes things they find everywhere. I think everyone craves something new. Your poems are lovely in themselves trust me on that ❀️

    1. thank you endlessly. i have to continuously remind myself of the fact that we are all different with unique strengths and weaknesses, and maybe some of the things that i’ve seen as my greatest flaws are actually quite beautiful xx
