Poetry contrasts with prose, or everyday writing, and often uses elaborate diction and figurative language which conceals deeper meaning.

These are just things I've come up with in my mind and etched onto a thin white substance. Song lyrics, crappy poems, thoughts, my mind, basically a diary, and tumblr posts. ♪
