Poetic Defination?



Poetic writes speak volumes too,
 this profound nature of humanity;
 expression's glyph or determination's rift,
 each soothing rhyme or base profanity;
 provoke of consciousness that drift,
 so casually or with rude insanity;
 furiously incite or simultaneously delight,
 set straight a thought or induce banality;
 unconscious rubric struggles forth,
 within the cleave of line, phrase and meter;
 guides a casual readership towards,
 all present trends hidden in a bard's demeanor;
 exposing just who seems ubiquitous, who is ingenuous,
 or just simply stubbornly ridiculous;
 one's sensuality splayed, our generosity bade,
 your critical natures shown meticulous;
 senses not semantics, rule of roles revised,
 lines of life's romantic, cleverly devised;
 discovering our thoughts on everything,
 exposing our minds to Id and ideals contrived;
 methods breached lift conclusion's reach,
 an ill-advised tome reaps the thought's divine;
 nurtured reasoning replaced by jest,
 releases the distain hidden within a mind's set plein;
 within this relief be it muse or beast,
 rests an orators mirth, or an epic myth's imply;
 poetic license freed, such a thing indeed,
 that “cat's meow” bests a graven image's belie;
 metaphors and idioms when used correct,
 add intrigue and delight to a word works vamp;
 bathos taps one's inner laugh, hyperboles,
 release a poem's waft, jape and poet's stamp;
 pleonasms reinforce, oxymora juxtapose,
 litotes understate, analogies delineate… cognition;
 and irony, an express of verbal, dramatic,
 cosmic or Socratic, lead to a write's ideal fruition;
 understanding each of these parts implores,
 partnership between, these particles and that of yours;
 expressing the limits of personal tastes and so much more,
 you, your dreams, schemes, hates, fears, tears and rapport;
 binding together all of US, and create the bonds that thus sustain,
 poetry to living life, to easing strife, within the poet's world domain.
