A bit of advice would be welcomed here if anyone could help.
I guess people do not really care about poems very much. Threads get ignored. They disappear from view. I put much effort into writing them and
nobody cares. Just takes the sails out of my enthusiasm. I suppose being new to the site did not prepare me for the disappointment. Would I be
better off placing them in a different forum? Or is what I have written just not very good? Funny how I think what I write is so important and well
meaning, yet very few have responded.
I seldom read poetry personally . Not sure if this site has a big base but it could be that your poems are taken up by lurkers (non members) . It
could be also that what you put out is not controversial . Hard to say ..As long as you enjoy doing it ,it fills that purpose ...peace
Probably just not the ideal place, unless your poetry is related to conspiracy / mysteries type material. If it is, perhaps "market it" (thread title)
as such. I certainly understand wanting to share your art, so I hope you find a way/place where it can be appreciated.
Personally, the only poetry I'm into is either classic masterpieces, or irreverent or dirty haikus.
like the above said, probly not the best place for poetry.
That being said, there are plenty of members who do read the poetry and short stories, and some even comment. Don't be discouraged for lack of
feed-back. Sometimes poetry just doesn't leave much to be critiqued. After all is is your views and feelings put into words.
