Poetry
Poetry is one of those awkward little gits where just because something works for one poem, that doesn't mean it'll work for another.

Poetry offers an unbelievable amount of creative freedom, but people often run away from it for reasons I don't fully understand.Poetry needn't be something to be scared of: with the right tools and the right direction, anyone can find the right type of poetry for them. / READ MORE /
