Shallow

So poetry is passion,
Right?
But storytelling takes practice.
(Or so I'm told.)
Storytelling is an art form,
A craft,
A way to entertain,
Or to make a living.
Poetry,
On the other hand,
Is
Instinctual,
Primal,
A basic
Need.
Storytelling is in words
Always.
Poetry is words, too,
And also pictures-drawings-sketches,
And movement-music-masquerade,
And expression-emotion-feeling,
But never
Always-something-anything-please.
Storytelling is history-moral-reason,
Yes,
But storytelling can be
Synopsized-summarized,
And really only ever taken at
Face
Value.

Yay comments!! Constructive criticisms are most definitely welcome here, and some profanity will be allowed, just so any posts containing such will not make Alicia come off as a hypocrite. Merry Commentating! :D
