Don't get me wrong, its not that I cant write poems, because I can
but poetry strikes me as extremely pseudo intellectual and a little... fake? Like too try hard and weird
I had an old high school teacher who got on my nerves, he was the "soulful" kind who wore scarves and acted deep because he was a poet but he wasn't willing to have any kind of, quote on quote, "deep" conversations which really made me dislike the image of poets and poetry in general as it was so heavily associated with him at my old school
I just don't think its as beautiful and profound as everyone says it is, I can write about death right now and pull some shit about depression out of my ass and people would act like its the most amazing shit ever
I dislike it, because its so easy to fake. There is no integrity in poetry I feel. Idk.
