For starters, creating poetry, like reading poetry, connects you with your emotions. You must create a poem on something about which you are enthusiastic. As you go along, you're forced to evaluate your feelings and articulate them in a way that conveys not only the information but also the passion behind it.
Secondly, poems can help us express ourselves better than words alone because they allow for subtlety and nuance. A poem can be as simple or complex as you want it to be - even a sonnet will do! They can convey deep meanings without being didactic. And their formal nature allows for greater clarity of expression than what is possible in informal writing.
Thirdly, poems are fun! Even if you're not very good at it, you'll still have a lot of fun trying out different styles and techniques until you find one that works for you. And who knows, you might even come up with some new ways of looking at things.
Finally, poems are useful because they can help us understand ideas and concepts that would otherwise be difficult to grasp. A poem can help us comprehend abstract ideas by giving concrete form to concepts that may not be readily apparent. For example, when you read a love poem, you immediately get a sense of the emotion that person feels for another. Such poems are helpful in understanding love itself because they give voice to those feelings that cannot be expressed in regular conversation.
Writing emotional poetry is all about making your reader experience what you're experiencing, whether it's excitement, misery, anticipation, joy, fury, or something else. It might be the most wonderful sensation in the world. Don't be shy about expressing yourself via poetry. Just concentrate on getting your ideas down on paper. Once they're on paper, you can look them over and edit them if necessary.
An emotional poem may be written in any style, but there are a few that are commonly used: sonnet, sestina, villanelle, freerole, phyllidaic verse, and quatrain.
Sonnets are usually composed of 14 lines with three quatrains and two tercets. They're often thought to have originated in England around 1400. Sonnets are typically very formal, using many archaic words and styling themselves after the works of Shakespeare. Today, they're still used to praise someone or something. For example, "The Sonnet for My New Car" by Eric Orton uses modern language to express its emotion toward a car.
Sestinas are sixteenth-century poems that use only seven lines, usually including one central metaphor and one concluding simile or image. For example, "The Sestina for the First Day of Spring" by Elizabeth Bishop uses the opening line's metaphor of sunlight as happiness before moving onto other topics in the sequence.
A poem is, first and foremost, an emotional expression. If you don't engage your sentiments when reading a poem, you haven't read it. This is critical because academia expects you to be impartial and scientific at all times. Therefore, if a poem doesn't touch you emotionally, you can't say anything meaningful about it.
Poetry is the art of expressing emotions through words. Many people think that poems are only lines of rhyming couplets that sound nice or have meaning, but this is not true at all. A good poem can be as simple or complex as necessary, using different techniques, to convey an idea or message. Poetry is also not just for poets, anyone can write it. Some people think that you have to be trained in literature to write poetry, but this is not true either. Anyone can write a poem if they use their mind and heart properly.
In fact, writing a poem is almost like thinking up a story but without putting it down on paper. When writing a poem, you start with an abstract concept or image and try to describe it in detail using different styles or forms of language, such as metaphors, similes, personifications, etc. As you do this, other ideas will come to you which you could use to continue your poem.
