Erm....no. I would help but love poetry isnt exactly my strong point. I could write it but not all the technical things your asking. Sorry!

Have an idea of where the poem is going before you start it. you would be amazed the amount of people that start with a vague idea and then end up carrying it on just because it rhymes because they dont know how to finish it.

I have completely the opposite problem really. I know where it's going, but when i get to the perfect end, i always look back, and think it isn't long enough. I never know how long to make them.

Well, yeah, i would like too. And i have one written, but... well, i find it sort of embarrasing. Not really the sort of thing that someone like me should be writing really...
I know its stupid though, but... i don't know to be honest.
I just think that everyone will think its stupid and stuff

Well, i'm never confident about my writing really.
Its just that... if i put something out there which i've put myself into, my heart and soul, and people don't like it, then... well, i'll feel exposed, and i'm really not used to exposing myself like that.

I,m exactly like that dont worry. I hate to think that if you post something you have put everything into, and then people put you down for it, I would lose my confidence in everything!! Feel free to post it to me though and I'll try help as much as I can x

Yep, Ive got it and replied to it aswell!
That was really really good, I read it a few times, there doesnt seem to be a problem with the flow of words or anything, and you have avoided cheesy unoriginal cliches. I say well done, you should be impressed with yourself!! Youve got loads of original ideas in there.
