Flowing Free

Flowing Free

A Poem by emptyinkwell
"

A satirical poem against rhyming poetry.

"
I don't believe in rhyme.
It's a childish waste of time.

It's 2018.
Break from the scene.

Let words flow
Like rivers go.

Let words bend, let verses meander.
This is going to get so much slander.

Flowing free.
Flowing free.
Flowing free.

Gee
Enjoyed this. I like to try my hand at the odd rhyme but it has to fliw, trip off the tongue and not seem as though the author is grasping.

Not too sure poetry needs to be one way or the other, I enjoy both but I think my music backround means I find rhyme a comfortable way to write. We all express ourselves in our own way 😁

I agree. Free flow and release the words. Nice flow of thoughts in the poetry.

You are welcome. I have enjoyed your work.
The art of rhyme is to make it subtle. It is difficult to do well. It takes great skill and can flow beautifully.

Sometimes you don't have to try, rhyming flows.
it is that forced rhyming, that blows!

No problem. The space for replay is very small to have overall view of the text.
Made me chuckle. Rhyming often seems redundant and superfluous. Perhaps it started as a sweetener for salty wit? After that it took on a life of its own.

I put words on paper (or in this case, a text box) and try to pass it off as poetry. Sometimes, my efforts are successful. A villain in my own right, but a hero in my own eyes. John Yossarian. R.. more..
