Now I'm going to babble on about poetry.
I don't fully understand what it is about poetry, but it is one of my favorite things. It's like my brain just has a way of understanding the words. I pick up the 'vibrations' of the poems I guess you could say, because even if the words make no sense I can still get the poem. This probably has something to do with being an empath.
I recently wrote this poem for my AP English class. I think that poetry probably has all four elements buried inside it, this was my way of recognizing the water element. It surprises me that water was the element that jumped out at me, because I don't feel a special connection to water. Maybe this is a way for me to start building that connection.
Poetry could be seen as getting swept up into a river.
It’s too late to get out- all you can do is go with the flow.
This is never easy, though. The current can pull you along at times,
demanding more than you believe you can possibly give.
It can almost drown you. Then it gets gentle and evens out.
You think “How nice, I’m safe!”
Then you hit the waterfall. This is white water that you can never get out of alive.
It sucks you into it and never lets you go!
You can’t recover from these poems. You are absorbed by them.
They can change you so wholeheartedly,
that it is difficult to know if you are even the same person.
