Why can't I cause old eyes to glisten
And apathetic ears to listen
Why can't I create rare delicacies
Filled with twists and intricacies
To leave the readers' clubs appeased
And authors' minds impressed indeed

Why does my work face such reject
Why is it met with sour neglect
What is the flaw in what I create
Is there nothing to see in what I make?

Where do I fall flat
What is it I lack
Why can it not be
That I write beautifully?

I'm in love with the fact that this poem is primarily composed of rhetorical questions, questions that I've often asked myself. I feel the tension/emotion of it all. 5/5

I feel the same way, it gets a message across simply and clear. Great job! Would you mind reading some of my work if you get a chance? Thanks

It's short and simple, but somehow moving.... don't misuderstand me just because I used the word "somehow" in front of the word "moving", this is a very good, very strong poem. Keep it up!
