Short Poems

Short and Simple Poems

A short poem may be a stylistic choice or it may be that you have said what you intended to say in a more concise way. Either way, they differ stylistically from a long poem in that there tends to be more care in word choice. Since there are fewer words people tend to spend more time on choosing a word that fits the subject to perfection. Because of this meticulous attitude, writing a short poem is often more tedious than writing a long poem.

I Am Unique
Be Proud Of Who You Are

Even a little crazy some of the time.

Poem About The Beautiful Chaos Of Life
  • By Kim McCrea
  • Published: February 27, 2016
Camouflaged

In all chaotic beauty lies a wounded work of art.
Beautiful but torn, wreaking havoc on my heart.
Camouflaged by insecurities, blinded by it all.
I love the way you sit there and barely notice me at all.
