guys, when you read great works of poetry, it's always interesting to see how those poets/writers use meter and rhyme, or lack thereof. Sometimes what you don't hear is just as interesting.
If you are interested in reading poetry from the abyss, i'd recommend two clinical depressives, Anne Sexton and Sylvia Plath. Also Wilfred Owen, an English poet who wrote primarily about war.
I do not write poetry but I had to read a ton of it in college.
