There’s so little good original poetry available on Tumblr right now. Browsing through the poetry tag and it’s all just prose written in short lines with no punctuation and lots of carriage returns. I don’t like poetry like that. I prefer it when the poetry has a rhythm, a tempo or at least a flow that has a separate point in each line, rather than just breaking up a single sentence over multiple lines to make it look like poetry.

To me that’s just trying too hard, but definitely doesn’t qualify as poetry. It’s simply prose written badly.
