First of all, on a technical level, the format of poetry is awesome, It allows us to chew on some idea (old or new), to play with images and rhythms and (hopefully) to end up with something that pleases us and a handful of others who read the poem.
Though we like to tell stories in poems, they don’t have to obey to (all) the laws of prose writing. There’s a much greater freedom of form in poetry than there is in prose and also more room to experiment.
All of that, of course, does not even come close to being a true answer of why we write. It is not the format that made us start writing poems and that makes us return to that particular field of writing again and again. Submit and share your “Poetry Here”
Who’s that little girl sitting in the chair, staring at the world, as if not to care
Who’s that little girl staring at me, looking through her eyes, I wish I could see
Who’s that little girl, she’s all alone, she has no home, at least in her mind
