Welcome to my Poet Lady Chat Room. I would like to invite you to click on the chat box and type in a question, a suggestion, submit a poem, in other words – “chat with me.” I may, if you submit a poem, decide to feature it in my Poem of the Week section or, we may simply exchange ideas and suggestions about your poem.

This is a place to “talk” poetry with someone who has loved it all her life. I have a true passion for the possibilities of poetry and would love to hear your thoughts and/or read your poem. I will be happy to offer my reaction to your work and, based on over 40 years of teaching poetry, organizing, and conducting poetry workshops, working as a book review editor for an international poetry magazine, authoring five books of poetry and two textbooks on teaching poetry, send along my thoughts on ways to make your poem stronger and more impactful.

If you’re on my site, you have a connection to poetry. Feel free to connect with me – right here -right now, by typing your message into the “chat box” and clicking send. I’m waiting…

 

Your friend in poetry, Susan

The pressure's killing me; I'm dying

I'm doing my best; I'm trying

Once upon a time I was flying

Now I'm just sitting in my room crying

My parents are on me spying

When to my friends I be replying

My friends think I be lying

While I sit there sipping tea sighing

The rules I keep defying

I'm annoyed by my relatives prying

I want love that's underlying

But his calls I keep declining

My priorities I be deciding

My mistakes I keep rectifying

Teachers keep work assigning

This isn't at all surprising

The thoughts in my mind keep striking

I keep on quickly writing

In this fake world I keep smiling

To stop myself from resigning
