Putting The Poems First Is What We Do

Read Poems. Post Poems. Get Feedback

Sure, DarkPoetry was originally just a place to post poems and get quality feedback.

But it became much more. In its 14+ years of quiet existence in the underbelly of the internet, DarkPoetry has attracted a diverse corpus of talented poets, conspiring to develop the dark art of the spoken miracle.

Join DarkPoetry (free) and become friends with some truly fascinating people. And you are always welcome to share your poems in this non-judgmental environment.
See the titles below for recent news items posted by the staff!

Farewell SilentStalker

Alas, our greatest steersman has taken his calloused hands from the rudder and walked up the dock for some well earned shore leave. I think I speak for the thousands of DarkPoets who have benefited from his kind and steady stewardship when I say thanks. Thanks for giving so much of your time to help others. Thanks for making beautiful custom profiles. Thanks for answering hundreds of requests for help. Thanks for settling disputes evenhandedly and with a cool head. We are truly grateful, and wish you every happiness in your new pursuits.

Congratulations New Scholars!

We have several new graduates from DarkPoetry College to promote! They are: Anna McCarra, Skye, Willow Wept, Tattoo Goddess, and Karebear.

They will appear on the official Scholarly Cabal and have a special mark Scholar appear next to their comments, so we can recognized that we're hearing from someone who knows a thing or two about poetry.

Also, a super big thanks to GhettoZombie for his extraordinary leadership in organizing and teaching this class. Great job!
