I write different poems, sometimes simple rhymes. Sometimes I do not use rhymes, but I try to express what I feel and see in my words.
I am rather happy with life, but I know what sadness is. I spend a lot of time online.

I do not see where I can publish my poems, is there a section?
Here's a small sample:

I love the evening silence of my balcony,
Moths like orbs dancing by the lamp
Stars, cold and crickets symphony
the glow exalted the moon on my cheek like a stamp

Can you buy or sell?
Holy peace when your day
stops hitting like a bell.
When the cold rushes into the room
Are feelings a currency?
I have my own resume

Will this poe m change anything
or just an empty cry that no one will hear in any while.
Can bad news reach the ear of the exile?
Is this a path of freedom, also for conscience?
Think about what is the most valuable currency
and what currency you would like to buy

Newbie here too! And this is a good piece of yours. To me, given how modern culture has changed, there is no specific need to use rhymes in poems, nor strict structure as well. I wonder, who exactly was your source of inspiration for this one?

This is a really good poem! I recommend that you expand on it because i have a feeling that something is missing.
My favorite authors are

Dan Brown

Daniel O'Malley

J.K. Rowling

John Grisham

Your poem looks good and I appreciate. Though, you have to experience well to incorporate literature. Poems are very helpful for the people how beautiful the literature is. Good luck in your endeavors!
