How to write a poem?

Rather writing poetry to express bluntly what you have experienced, write poems to create feelings to the reader.

Focus on these points while writing a poetry.

    1. Know Your Goal
    1. Avoid Clich├ęs
    1. Avoid Sentimentality
    1. Use Images
    1. Use Metaphor and Simile
    1. Use Concrete Words Instead of Abstract Words
    1. Communicate Theme
    1. Subvert the Ordinary
    1. Rhyme with Extreme Caution
    1. Revise, Revise, Revise
    And finally read yourself as a Reader and if you can’t explain it yourself, expel the poem and write again.
    Happy Writing!!
