I can remember when the creative expression of what I felt inside was forbidden. It's as if what I was writing, the cleansing of my mind, was wrong, and for thinking/writing/sharing those thoughts, I was... wrong.
Then, by sheer luck (divine providence, fate, etc.) I came across DarkPoetry.com, and I realized I was one of many. Here, I have found a home, and many friends, and... understanding."
"To have great poets, there must be great audiences too." - Walt Whitman
Publishing poems on your own is costly, pay-for-entry poetry anthologies are rarely read by
anyone, and there are few presses who will take a chance on even an excellent
book of poems.
DarkPoetry is a supportive and quirky community where your poems will get read,
and you'll also get to mingle with a wide variety of personalities,
all enjoying our Sanctuary from the So-called Normal World
