My Conclusion

Okay, One day while trying to go to sleep after working all night, this thought popped into my head. Why do the best poem some people write come from a moment of extreme emotion. Like my poems, most are written in the dark depths of depression.

So If it is because of our heightned state of emotion that we see things, or think of things differently. Then why is it that when later in life, after the moment has long passed, when you try and write a poem about it, it never turns out real good. Or when you try your hardest to write a poem, for ans assignment, or a contest, and they always seem to suck. Answer this my friends

So, in a heightend emotion state one has a higher level of thought focused on one thing, the dominating emotion, whatever it may be. Thus, for those of us that write. creates thought patterns for prose and poetry. And when you try to recall that later, it has died. there is nothing to draw upon. at least that is what i came up with, with the help of some friends.

Yes it does. All this conversation has eased my mind somewhat, and I thank you all for your answers and deep thoughts.

Very true.
To put it shortly...because i can't really say!
It's the difference between having a fight with someone who just pissed you right off, and walking up to someone in the street who pissed you off weeks ago. Who you're not even mad at any more, and punching them in the mouth.
One feels so, so, right.
But the other is an expression of a dead and decomposing emotion.

It's the difference between kissing someone you love, and kissing someone you USED to love...
One is just an attempt to recapture something that's long since fled.
If that makes any sense?

because when we feel intenese emotion, in my opinion atleast, then sometimes we cant talk about it, and when we write, we can just let it all out, in words we probably wouldnt have thought of if it werent for the emotion. if yr writing has no emotion, it is no good
