I'm Bad at Poems

I'm Bad at Poems

A Poem by NightWatch
"

A poem about how I'm not so great at poems >.>

"
Did you know
That I'm bad at poems?

All that rhyming
For me, it's hard
I'm not good at timing
(For certain, I'm no bard)

Poems usually pose
Some pretty, perfect,
and practical
Alliterations

And sometimes
Allusions make me feel
Like I'm falling
Down a rabbit hole

Repetition, I don't get
Repetition is strange
Repetition makes my brain
Feel like it's going through a maze

Similes are like Hard Mode
On a video game
But metaphors...
They're Expert Mode!

Personification is odd
It's a breeze
Whispering in my ear
Telling me secrets

You know what the wind tells me?
The wind tells me
to stop writing poems

Also, because you asked to review once or twice, I absolutely loved your reference to Lewis Carroll, who is the author of Alice in Wonderland, and the mention of different techniques, and your perspective on them. Your emotions were spread through the poem, and they hit home!
Great job!

I loved it! The topic was relatable, and I totally get that feeling. Like when I wake up feeling cute, but pass by a super drop dead gorgeous person, and just melt into a puddle. Then I crawl back home, and write stuff. Anyway, (sorry, I tend to ramble) your poem was highly enjoyable, and I really hope you don't quit!
