The Nuances

We all have to learn
The nuances
Of how to pave our ways
Through this poetic site

You rarely visit my page
Gradually you shall become
As adept as I have,
To meander the courses here,
Like a serpent avoiding
The machinations of wiles

So let be it your stance too,
You will learn a trick or two,
Praise is all we hanker for,
No not I alone, nor you
Is an exception, that’s true?

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 

Comments

I respectfully disagree. Praise is not all we desire. Of course I can only speak for myself, but of all the advantages offered by posting on a poetry website, the one I desire the most is critical commentary about my poetry that I may improve. Particularly my epic poem if I could find anyone with the time and inclination to help me with it. Praise is satisfying, but not as much as seeing my epic improve.
I would rather suffer the iniquities of a thousand negative comments intelligently arrived at than have a single soul tell me my poem is good. I want to write the best epic poem I can and that means I must be challenged to change.
I put my head in the guillotine willingly.
Istan

W. H. Snow

A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds. Percy Bysshe Shelley

SALAAMS
Glad you have taken over my pseudonym
given to me by the lady poet here
and who makes it a point never to read me anymore.

As racialism is not in my blood
i forgave her and now
u enjoy this name much more .
Write what you will ,
i can't say much
as a poet
i ain't one as such
