There’s so many reasons why I am for and against sharing poetry. I like the idea of sharing it due to the fact that like… I want people to read my stuff. I want them to relate. I want them to connect with me, or I just want their reaction of “wow”. Obviously some poetry is too cliche, some is too non relatable, but either way, I like the idea of poetry can connect people on a deeper level.
I just hate sharing poetry because it can feel like giving away a piece of me. Someone might hate it, judge me so harshly, meanwhile it felt like I was pouring my soul out while I wrote it. This is just the qualms of being a writer, I guess.
One of my favorite things about sharing poetry though is when people write to me telling me how they couldn’t put that thought, or that feeling into words, but that it describes them perfectly. Such a rewarding feeling.
A lot of people aren’t as in tune to their feelings either. It doesn’t matter. It’s fine. I’ll just keep posting my poetry and hope you all love it. Kloveubye.
