Emotion! Or Removal.

Emotion! Or Removal.

A Lesson by Robert Dees
"

This is for the people who want to know how to make their poems more or less emotional.

"

All right, let's get to the point. You don't want to sound like a toneless ninety year old man on his deathbed. Unless you're going for that sorta vibe, you want to sound a certain way. You can get that emotional feel with good powerful verbs. You can get the removed feeling by using pronouns and very vague word choice. 
Emotional example:
I yanked my soul,
the glassy future shattered,
as dull as coal,
to the ground I clattered.

Removed ex.:
They swayed through,
'til it was the sound,
of all things I knew,
and they were homeward bound.
