Get Writing with tWR's Poetry Workshop!
Whether you are a beginner or a pro at poetry writing, you know the feeling of staring at a blank page - the desire of putting into words what is so clear in your head... and the delusion of not being able to do so. 
But theWrittenRevolution 's staff is here to help! Today marks the start of our poetry workshop, and this one is all about the process of writing a poem. Every participant will start from scratch and we'll help you create a poem from start to finish.
The workshop is both going to be interactive and independent. This means that 1, we'll be helping you on the way with advice, chat events, and interactions on blog entries and 2, you can do the workshop on your own as well and start anytime you want to, any step of the way. This means that if you already have a poem draft you can skip the part where we come up with the first ideas, and join the polishing stage!
Of course, we'll be exploring only a few of the countless techniques that are out there to help you create poet

Literature
Ever After
Crumbs
from a slice
of life
left behind
to remember,
eaten up
by birds
of the past.
This way
I lost
one path,
found a thousand
white trees,
a woman asleep
pale as the moon,
surrounded
by stale tears.
In dreams
she waits;
in reality
I wonder:
can I save her
does she want
my love
still?
I have no horse
I have no reign.
Nothing to give
but a kiss
and the rotting castle
of my heart.
Long shadows
bruise the ground,
as I let fear
hold my hope.
Around us
poisonous roses
bloom inviting -
what kind of curse
is to believe
and lose,
what kind of evil
will promise
and steal.
The sad wolf
of loneliness
howls
through skin and bones,
I shiver
clasping blood red
upon my shoulders -
I understand
what the winds
are screaming:
these woods
won’t let us both dream,
it’s the eerie comfort
of one eternal night
or the key
to something uncertain
and frail.
When my name
trembles close
to her lips,
crystal shards
pierce the sun
back to life.
Suddenly
her eyes of gold,
sweet homes,
are mine again -
an

Living (in the belly of the flower)
Like bees 
in yellow tulips,
we live inside of days;
high walls built around us,
yet ever so fragile.
In silence
I listen to the rain
fiddling with my windows;
shy rivulets of water
reflected on your skin.
I follow 
their blithesome race
with erratic fingertips,
you said last night, a laugh
exists in every thunder,
you said: "my dear, the sky
knows no other way to cry" -
I think, somehow with fear,
you might be my river 
to the sea.
I've learned this much
of lovers and years:
they know not 
how to touch us
without leaving a trace.
As the morning softly opens,
I see there is a mountain 
standing in the flower’s heart,
a single light-stained dewdrop
runs down by its sides
precise like the ink of your pen,
deliberate it carves-
slow as a joyful tear,
almost aware 
of its own weight.

Literature
Tidal Song
I can only love the moon from the ground,  
eyes closed I wish aloud she’d want me too
(but how long does it take for the lost to be found.)
My chest must cage a mermaid, I am ocean-bound:
to behold summer rays in jelly jars won’t do,
I can only love the moon from the ground.
Gold, angry dusk brought a storm around;
feeling rain on my face I think of you
(but how long does it take for the lost to be found.)
Mad we dance out of time like clocks being wound
to the tune of the night, slow and blue;
I can only love the moon from the ground.
In a room of my skull, truth and thunder resound;
and I wake up, at sea from a dream not yet true
(but how long does it take for the lost to be found.)
Amid darkest waves falling stars now abound,
close to tears I let hope brim my heart anew:
I can only love the moon from the ground
(but how long does it take for the lost to be found.)

Long exposure
When I left the house
this morning,
I held you
tighter than a promise,
and carved a wet prayer
along the soft column
of your neck,
your puzzled look
so amusing
I almost didn't go.
Oh I know
It's just another Monday,
holidays are over
coffee tastes the same;
but the flightless bird of grief
has nestled in my throat
once again.
And it tolls
its hollow psalm.
If only our eyes
were infinite treasure chests,
empty at birth,
we could save everything;
no more afraid
of time
that passes and doesn't;
of mirrors, photographs,
of moments that live
and cannot stay; of chances
not taken.
Oh
but maybe
that's the purpose of the heart.
Maybe that's why we cry,
of pain,
for no reason, of joy,
all the time,
even for people
who don't know
our name.
My dear,
it's always today
what shatters my bones
in drops of ink
and music,
I wish I could keep
all that you give me.
When I left the house,
this morning,
feeling everything too much,
I caressed our red roses
covered in rain
and I looked up at the sky,
still
