Poetry

From the Heart (#721)

Putting my heart into what I write,
But prose and poetry are different as day and night,
Poetry tends to speak right from the heart,
It’s been that way since the start,
Prose, however, is more like an unbulleted list,
It’s fairly dry, but it portrays the gist,
I’ve read prose that could wonderfully sing,
But my prose never had that same zing,
It’s not for lack of trying on my part,
But I can never seem to give it enough heart,
I do better in 1st person than I do in 3rd,
At least in dialog, so I’ve heard,
There are just some genres I refuse to write,
But I get ideas for those genres in spite,

Any Thoughts?
