Biography

British economics student whose first and last loves are poetry, using this site to obtain friendships with other like-minded, undiscovered poets, draw inspiration from the wide range of variety offered by the network of poets on here and receive feedback upon my own work as I strive to hone, define and improve my style.

My primary penchants in writing are unusual rhyming schemes and alliterated internal rhymes; I rarely write non-rhyming poems. I also like my poems to contain a 'sting' or a punchline in the vein of Simon Armitage, where my poetry wraps up perhaps differently to expected or with dark humour.

I'm looking to develop my use of pentameter and, ultimately, I wish to create an extended piece which runs as a story, where the rhythm changes to reflect the changes in moods/character's fortunes/plot twists/etc.

Criticism as well as praise is warmly welcomed and greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

And remember, if you encounter writer's block, simply become a reader for a while. This site and others like it will be full of inspiration.

Dear Aaron, // My very best friend just died. Back in August I wrote a poem about our friendship, posted here on OP.com as well as on Shine. It is called "The Best Person I Ever Knew: My Best Friend Brian." // I have now posted a poem about him that was written just days before he died, while he was still in hospital. He had cancer, but the cancer did not kill him. The official cause of death, I think, was heart failure. The actual cause of death was different, as you will see in the poem, if you decide to read it. // I hope you will read both of these poems. The one I posted about my friend was always important to me, but now it is my most important poem to me. Next to that, my new one is, which is called: "My Bestest Friend: Or, Dying and Doctors and Love and Callousness." // Bye now, fellow poet. // --Michael LP, Mr. Poet

Dear Aaron, // I was just in the Chat room here (the main one) a while ago, and someone said something that made me think of you. // While thinking of you, and considering how much heart (and mind) you put into those of your poems that I have found to be such a pleasure to read--even those moving me to a sad reflective mood--I suddenly was inspired. Not having my usual pen and notebook handy, I quickly wrote a poem, right there in the Chat room, and posted it there first. // The title of this, my newest poem, is: "Sidney Says: Advice to Poets and All Writers"--and it was written from me to you. // My heart having created the poem, my mind then touched it up a bit. Now it is posted on my site. I named you as the inspiration for the poem in the dedication. // I hope you will like the poem (but if you don't, please say so! And give it whatever critique you think it merits. I prize honesty as one of the chief virtues of both life and science, second only to compassion). // I hope, too, that you will approve of my naming you as the inspiration. // I've been very busy putting many of my poems up on OP.com--some recent ones, some brand-new ones (like the one you inspired a little while back). and some from a year or more ago. I want to leave online as much of myself in poetry--and also in poetic prose--as I can. // Aaron, I'm still haunted by your poem "Haiku for the Crab." I'm glad to see you took my advice and changed the word from "haikus" to "haiku." But in the end, you could call this poem anything at all, and not detract from the great beauty, total truth, and powerful impact of this poem. It is a masterpiece, in my evaluation. // All my best wishes to you. // --Michael LP, Mr. Poet

Thank you for the friend request I look forward to reading your poetry

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
