I can truly appreciate poetry, and after reading that, I can say I have a favorite writer. It's something about reading your poems. I can understand every bit of it, yet it still makes me think. This poem was brilliant.

wow, thnx lol..I know what you mean though I kinda feel the same way when I read something by you or Tim, and some other members here it's like maybe I've thought the same thing a time or two but couldn't put it into words, or I could relate to where you're coming from....thnx for the feedback guys, I'm working hard on coming up with new stuff

*fuQ do you know much about free-writing?(if you don't) it's basically a technique where you pick a subject or you're given a subject and you write non-stop for a certain amount of time. You basically let your pen guide you. I was thinking of sharing a couple of mine but I figure since it's prose not poetry/song/rap/ many people won't take time out to read it, but if anybody would be willing to give me some feedback I'll start by posting just one

I'm not sure if I've ever categorized my stuff to that extent. More than likely, I haven't done that except one time. I did something like that for a "poem" titled 'Truths + Love'. At the most, I'd just free my mind and write str8 up. The quickest I've wrote a verse was maybe 15 minutes. I sort of mix "free-writing" with it being based around an idea. As long as what I'm writing is rich, I really won't care how much time I put in it.

And go ahead an post or pm me a "Free-Written". I'd like to read it.
