Writing poetry is hard.

                                            No, it isn’t.

How would you know?

                                           Because it’s like breathing.

No, it isn’t, there are rules. You can’t throw words down.

                                            Forget the rules. You’ll never write thinking about them.

But that’s what makes it poetry!

                                            Are you sure about that?

…What is poetry?

                                             I told you, breathing.

    I am of the opinion that poetry is more about rhythm than anything else. Rhyme will often accentuate rhythm.. Otherwise, I agree. There are no rules.
