BUT, I am no poet, nor lyricist, really. (I've dabbled, but that's it). I was in a band in HS (I played bass) and we had two lead singers for a while. Both wrote their own lyrics, so I didn't really write much. That was their job so I never really concerned myself with it. This makes things difficult.
But now I'm finding myself having to write poetry and lyrics. And that is an entirely different skill set than writing. As I mentioned a few times, I love words (being a linguist), and slang, and especially plays-on-words. Some of my favorite musicians are my favorites because of their creative lyrics. But trying to make up my own takes a different sort of brain for me. And a lot more focus.
Especially writing romantic poems. I find a lot of the commercial ones sappy, so it's hard for me, because I don't like sap. The trick is to find something genuine, harness that emotion or detail or description, and use that.
I don't think I have quite found that yet, but hopefully, with more practice, I'll at least get better.
