Jay Long’s Timeless Chatter Between the Heart and Mind

Poetry, as it’s defined in the modern dictionary, is a literary work in which special intensity is given to the expression of feelings and ideas by the use of distinctive style and rhythm.

The definition is pretty accurate.

The written word when by itself is simple, and sometimes holds no meaning whatsoever, but when certain words are grouped together, it can be magical. The beauty of poetry is for every reader, the meaning may be completely different. Poetry, more so than other forms of writing, allows the reader to escape, to relate their own experiences to the words the writer has bled onto the page.

Does Empathy Kill Creativity?

As a storyteller, I have always been able to throw myself into any given situation. When I was younger, I didn’t know exactly why that was or even if it was a thing. As I grew older I came to understand I am what is officially known as an empath. And because of this, I have always been very in-tune with emotions and situations. It truly has its benefits and unfortunately, its drawbacks as well.
