I love reading poetry, and I've always tried to write but I never seem to have any direction. I can never have a good start, I never have anything to write about (ideas). For all you poetry lovers/writers, what tips could you give me when it comes to writing?

Its hard to tell someone how to write poetry. You could take some classes and learn about structure, etc. but its all subjective. What one person thinks is good poetry is crap to someone else. And as far as ideas, no one can help you there. I usually draw from daily experiences for inspiration to my poetry.

I like to write. Just today I had one of my poems in my head for some reason. I wrote it a couple years ago and we (my band) have intended to use it as lyrics for a song. But it hasn't happened yet and as of this moment it is still just another of my poems.

Putting Up A Fight

6 foot 7 motherfucker
Fire in his eyes
Laughing like a jackal as he?s dancin on my head
Somehow I done pissed him off
Wasn?t very wise
I?m pretty sure its something that I said
Ain?t no way I?ll win this one
He?s gonna put me down
My face is bruised and bleedin, it?s a pretty ugly sight
I?d probably be better off
If I would just submit
But I ain?t going down without a fight!

Ain?t no chance of winnin
I?m paying for my sinnin
The devil is a grinnin
But I?m putting up a fight

I?m not sure when I started
Maybe a week ago
But I know I been partying for way to fucking long
The whiskey?s trying to kill me
While the cocaine keeps me up
But now the lines are getting pretty long
Things are gettin fuzzy now
I know I?m losing ground
My mind is growin darker than a moonless winter night
Feeling like it won?t be long
Before I am face-down
But I ain?t passing out without a fight!

Ain?t no chance of winnin
I?m paying for my sinnin
The devil is a grinnin
But I?m putting up a fight

Its eating me from inside
Or so the doctors say
A lifetime of excesses is finally catching up
Struggling just to stay alive
Each and every day
But its obvious this thing has got me whooped
I?m trying to ignore it
But every day is pain
I take 2 oxycontin just to get to sleep at night
I feel my life is fading
Like a fire in the rain
But I ain?t gonna die without a fight!

Ain?t no chance of winnin
I?m paying for my sinnin
The devil is a grinnin
But I?m putting up a fight

Each day you?re getting colder
I can see it in your eyes
The luster and the magic of our loving is growing bland
And I?m afraid it won?t be long
Until you realize
How quickly you are slippin through my hands
Your eyes and heart are wandering
You?re looking for someone
You?re throwing out your lustful lure and wating for a bite
And soon some guy will take the bait
And you?ll be moving on
But I won?t let you go without a fight!

Ain?t no chance of winnin
I?m paying for my sinnin
The devil is a grinnin
But I?m putting up a fight

You invented the wheel....You push the motherfucker!!

The thing that helps me generate ideas is quite simply: to write!

Sometimes, I don't have a clue what I am writing about until I just do it.
