Any freeform writing/e.e.cummings fans?

Forum: Writing and Poetry

Hey, I've always been into freeform poetry ever since I've seen some of e.e.cummings' stuff. It's like he has no filter whatsoever between his emotions and the paper, it's really cool!

I haven't heard a lot of talk about it though. Was wondering if anybody has anything to share, either some stuff you like or have written yourself. I'm interested! :D

Hey, you write very well! Lots of good ideas being expressed here. (: You do a pretty neat job describing what it's like to be a very passionate writer.

I write in free verse sometimes as well. Here's something I wrote in 2017 (I actually cant believe it's been around 3 years since i wrote this. crazy o: )

My poetry is character based free form

drinking the poison

come evening she drank the poison
that would kill the same old now
tonight it's a burgundy
rich dark & complex
like the words
between the covers
of the book
matilda now opens


the old clock
sat unwound for years
till matilda finding the key
wound it up & set time in motion
chiming on the hour & on the half
it's musical tones announce
the passing of the day
while it's filigree hands
march around the clock face
on a journey to forever

e.e. cummings is one of my favorite poets! have you ready any jim morrison or yoko ono? i think you might like them if you like cummings! i think gary snyder is similar in some ways as well!

(also i am totally down to chat about poetry, haha, it's kind of my thing.)

edit - i also saw you have a hellopoetry! i miss that site so much haha, i'm still on it but hardly post bc the site always crashes on me.
