I have to answer this question on my online English class... If it was up to me i would put "A mess of complete nonsense that I honestly don't understand... at all."

BUT I can't say that.... SO Pit, What is poetry?

Poetry is just lyrics. A song with a rhythm and a melody.

I hate it, they make us analyse stupid annoying poetry, but don't let us analyse songs, which may have more meaning than the poems, with just as much effort put in.

Imagine analysing a Dream theater song.

Me too. If some people only could ge their head out of the sand they could realize that poetry is a wonderfull way of expressing yourself.
The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.

thats what i was thinking. i didnt do that. i just related poetry to music and i think it sounds pretty good. i mentioned for the love of god by steve vai as being poetry... hopefully the professor plays guitar and would know exactly what i mean.

I understand that poetry has deep meanings, but I could never really get into it and it never appealed to me. But I have always been a fan of short stories and dialogue as written expression
