I write for myself, or a very specific audience (generally one person, that the poem is for). It's only been in recent years that I even let anyone else read my personal work, and only the past few weeks that I've been posting it in a public format where anybody can look at it. For me at least, poetry is a very personal thing... I write about myself, about how I feel or what's been happening to me at the moment... Something that struck my imagination, or made the words bump along inside my head... Doesn't really matter if it strikes a chord with someone else. I wrote it for my own reasons, and that's enough for me.
