Embrace Emotion #atozchallenge #poetry #photography


barbed letter E

 unscrew the light bulb

cram my feelings til they blaze

 can’t tell until I’m limp

you  are truly crazed

clamp down the wire cutters

frenzied barbed wire  dance 

 wrap careless about my heart

are you looking for your chance?

turn the car’s ignition

let fumes suck away the air

I died so  long ago

no one ever cared

Emotive language is a form of common poetry in which language is at its most condensed and significant form. This is a common way that writers use to convince readers by appealing to their emotions and using a language that shows sympathy in some way.

“Anxiety is the hand maiden of creativity”

T.S. Eliot

“Any poet, if he is to survive beyond his 25th year, must alter; he must seek new literary influences; he will have different emotions to express.”

T.S.Elliot

 

How have you altered your writing over the years??? Or is it time for a change?

  1. Another fabulous poem, and I like the things you add at the end of the posts. My writing has definitely changed–I’ve improved in being more concise (which I still haven’t mastered when I’m talking…).

  2. I used to write more emotive work, then my style got more factual and now I’m thinking, I need to learn to combine the two more effectively. Because while the more emotive work lacked substance (my assessment), I still need readers to be able to be touched by events in my stories, to care about my characters. It’s hard going though.

  3. My favorite are haiku’s. I started with poetry when I was a teenager but gave up with having to abide by so many rules. Writing novels isn’t much easier but it feels like there’s more freedome in form and structure. Thank you.
