  • P-Crew Pick April 16

    Well folks we are 16 days into napo. About midway! And yet everyone is still putting out so many amazing poems. Today we will look at a poem I really enjoyed from the thread A Poet Bleeds Ink

    Todays Pick was:
    Overthinking is my lover by @Youbeaucupid
    Even the title and first line are amazing and immediately draws you in! Relatable and very interestingly put. This poem tells of the overbearing ever-present overthinking. How it can cling to you, and infect you. Some of my favorite lines were

    It tells me I'm not good enough,
    that I'll never measure up,
    that I'll always fall short of perfection,
    no matter how hard I try to give up..

    Incredibly heat breaking and telling of the very real experiences of overthinking and self doubt. Truly poetic.

    Would definently recommend staying tuned to Cupids thread! Some amazing poems already!

    Hey friends! We are about half way through april- which means we are also halfway through the Spoken Word/Visual Poetry Contest! As we get closer towards the end of the month, now is the time to continue working on your amazing poems and getting ready to submit them to the contest thread. The thread is open all month for submissions. I am definitely getting pretty close to submitting some of my own poems as well and I can’t wait to see all of yours!

    I wanted to post some #SpokenWord2024 tips to help you get started with creating visual and spoken word poetry!

    I found this video to be really informative and helpful in learning some different forms of visual poetry. If you are looking for some new methods to experiment, I definitely recommend taking a peek at that.

    And if you are looking for some inspiration to write and record spoken word poems, I recommend checking out the Button Poetry Youtube channel. I do not have the words to express how much I love this organization. So many of their poems have touched me deeply and are really the reason I got into slam poems and spoken word poemns in the first place.

    I wanted to take a moment to say that I am blown away by all of the incrediblke NaPo poems I have been able to read so far this month! I have also seen some incredible visual poetry published, that I wanted to take some time to acknowledge and shoutout!

    Something vain & something beautiful by @herbalhour

    And so many more! I encourage all of you to submit your amazing poems to the contest!! If anyone has any questions (or wants to collab with me on a poem) don't hesitate to reach out!!

  • I feel very disconnected from my sense of self

    SkyVibes same, girl, same. The struggle is shared. Tomorrow is a different day though. Life will continue on and that's unchangeable but the future is what's changeable. Take advantage of tomorrow! You got this!

  • I think it's good to recognize the good in yourself
    Spoiler! :
    now I personally don't think I am the best singer. I don't like my voice. However I do a lot of public performances. And I can say I definitely feel like I have improved so much from my first public performance to now. The way I have learned where my vocal range is and how to better get the notes I want and be able to hear the notes. And my voice is more clear, and loud. I am actually comfortable with alro belting and soft soprano. I still don't like the way my voice sounds. But I do see how I am constantly learning and improving the more I practice and perform. And I think that's pretty cool

    LadyMysterio Yess! Very cool!

  • PCrew Pick April 9th

    We are already over a week into napo and we have so many amazing poems to choose from!
    This particular poem grabbed my attention from the interesting formatting. The emotions are raw and tangible.
    This weeks Pcrew Pick is i read between the lines by @herbalhour from the thread melancholia induced by my lack of self

    The way it is formatted feels like taking of a mask revealing deeper meanings and truer self, which is a very interesting and beautiful way to write this. As welll as lines done alternating and inverse.
    when i die will you('ll) for(emember)get me (right)?
    (maybe you will, and i'll be left hanging,
    like a carcass on telephone wire.)

    I have really enjoyed reading this thread!
