i carve insignificant poetry into my tongue
and hope the world will pardon the lack of
bated silence, for i write in nothing but
despondent screams and uppercase;
i've forgotten how to let everything go
and i'm tired of my incessant howling,
because it seems to me that the quiet
words are the ones that are the most
heard.
                                                         
Trying something a bit different to work through my ever-present writer's block.

I honestly don't like writing in nothing but lowercase because to me, I want my poetry to scream. Yet, as I'm finally realizing...it's the most simple and quiet words that really seem to be the most boisterous.

I think I'm going to try lowercase more often. After all, my style is always changing. It couldn't hurt.

I love how honest this is. You can see in some of my work I switch between different capitalizations. I use lowercase in the poems that are quiet and I alternate depending on what I want to sound like, I suppose.

This is truly beautiful. I wish I sounded like this in my writer's block haha.

This is just lovely. <3

I can never bring myself to write poetry in lower case, or without proper punctuation, like I've seen some poets on this site do. My grammar Nazi side just goes a little insane.

My grammar Nazi side was smacking me when I wrote this going "NO USE UPPERCASE" and I was like "IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE AESTHETICALLY PLEASING DAMMIT."
