    I love poetry and used to write all the time and wish I still had the ability to. I thought it was a wonderful poem.

    One does not lose the ability, one gets writer's block. Keep trying don't give up. It's a beautiful way to express yourself especially at your age. Then when you reach my age; you read what you wrote back then and laugh and smile at yourself - the way you were and the way you are. Trust me , keep trying to write

    I can't think clearly enough to write anymore. It sounds terrible when I try.

    dont try to write. feel it in your heart.
    writers block is when your head gets in the way.

    give it time. if you have the gift, you will write again.

    keep a journal, that only you can read.
    enjoy writing in it, and your writers block should clear.
    make it a chore to write in the journal, and you will have trouble with poetry.

    It doesn't matter how it sounds.

    I wrote this when I was your age

    "I am the sea, the sea is me."

    Does that make sense?
    Not to me now.
    Keep trying

    I wrote this a few years ago and had it posted on that poetry lovers thing on here. Its probably my favorite poem that I've written. I wish I could still write well =(

    And in this night air I'll breathe you in
    Take your hand and walk with you
    Our strides in sync, we sound as one walking down this lone street.


    And I hear you, as you whisper to the stars
    Calling me by name as you lift me in your arms
    Speaking into me your life's song, barely audible to my ear


    And I listen, to the sweet sound of our kiss
    Your arms encircle me, and weave our bodies together
    The rain begins to melt us, softly becoming one


    And I touch you, the cold tingles in my finger tips
    It disappears with your kiss
    In this moment I pour into you


    And in this cold night, we breathe each other in
    Staring into one another's eyes like the twinkling stars
    Looking for nothing else, finding everything in this moment
