I don’t know if any of my followers or anybody else really, have an account on poetry.com, but I do. I have recently made an account thinking it would be a good way of having other people read my work. There are some really great poems on there, that I will not deny, my issue with it is this… It is based on a points system, so the more poems you submit the higher the points, which is fine. But you also get more points for rating and reviewing other peoples poetry. This perk I think forces people to comment or rate something that they really don’t want to, in order to get said points. I have also noticed that a lot of these people who are critiquing the poems seem to have limited knowledge of poetry. I am in no way, more like light years away from being Shakespeare, but for one of my poems to get berated because it was in prose form and did not rhyme, had me baffled. I enjoy using prose form, and think it can be under rated sometimes by those who do not even know it is a form. I had tried to explain to said commenters that I used prose form on purpose because I enjoy it, and it fit well with that poem. Granted you all have read some of my poems, and I do not use prose too often, I mix it up. But after simple research on the sight, I see that they too have poetry that is far from perfect. I being the bigger person explained my views on my poetry, but refused to comment on their issues. I didn’t need to start a war. Because let’s face it, I can be vicious, so I would win. I have seen some really horrible stuff on that site, not necessarily saying the poems themselves were bad, but about 65% of them had no spell check, no proper grammar, no punctuation, no revisions on them at all. I made sure all of mine were perfect before I posted them, so to get several comments saying that the poem would have been great if I had put it in rhyming stanzas, or paragraphs made me slightly saddened. What do you guys think about poetry in prose form? Is it atrocious? Or is it just a misunderstood form of poetry? I would really like your opinions on this. As the thought that my poetry may be suffering simply because of the form I use. the poem in question is Into This Night, which is a few posts below. As I said any and all feedback on this is greatly appreciated.
