“Poetry is the revelation of a feeling that the poet believes to be interior and personal which the reader recognizes as his own.” Salvatore Quasimodo

In my own experience I’ve often found the experience of writing poetry to be intensely personal whilst at the same time being very cathartic and therapeutic. You’re writing down thoughts; observations and experiences that, you think, are unique to you, that nobody else could possibly understand.

You find that process brings relief & healing and that’s a wonderful feeling in it’s own way. πŸ˜πŸ‘ But what we don’t often realise is just how much our poems impact on folk who are reading them; how relatable they turn out to be. Or how much a person can identify with what we are writing: sharing or talking about. This can simply be down to you being honest with your feelings and struggles, a rarity still in these so called enlightened times. Or it could be the way you wrote it or the words you used that pulls the reader in as they’ve suddenly found a word for the emotions or problems they’ve been dealing with. πŸ€—πŸ˜Š

For someone to read what they are feeling or dealing with written out by someone else (who they may not even know) in front of them can be eye opening and comforting for the reader whilst wonderfully satisfying and humbling for the poet. It can connect you both intimately in a way that nothing else can achieve. Words are powerful; noble; funny and beautiful folks especially when used honestly; with good intentions and carefully chosen. They can shine a light on the dark; hidden places in people’s souls to reveal things they never knew about themselves; bring about hope: growth & purpose and change their lives forever.
