Dear, I don't know you much...so I can't comment on the fact that you think that your writing phase is over...but if you ever used to write, trust me, writing is inside you. You would always be able to write, no matter how many days or months have passed. And this is coming from personal experience :)
And true, poems do not have to rhyme. They just are written to depict the emotions which sentences can never do. Thanks for sending me the PM for your poem, because I am a complete fan of poems. I just love to read and write poems. So, thank you :)
And I really salute you for having the courage for publishing your poem. I write poems too, but they always remain hidden in my diaries, and not here. I could only persuade myself to publish three poems here, which are not that close to my heart. It takes a LOT of courage to share a poem. I feel intimidated because by sharing a poem, I feel like I am sharing a part of myself.
When I read the topic, 'The Cradle', I got a preconceived idea that either the person is remembering his/her childhood or the mother is looking at her child in the cradle. I mean, anything, related to childhood.
And I can seriously tell you that this poem was truly amazing. It's really touching. I am in love with it. It's very important for the poem to convey the message, without the complexity. It's so beautifully written that I could feel how she felt.
She wanted kids because she never had any. But she had hope, that she would have them some day. It was truly beautiful captured. This poem was not only enchanting, but spectacular and real. It depicted all those emotions which were real.
Trust me, it's the truth because I never flatter anyone when it comes to poems.
Thanks again, for the PM. It's a wonderful poem.
Keep writing always, because, you can.
