One can not just disagree with this - Poetry is the most beautiful way to evoke emotions in us. It has the power to bring life and vision to inanimate things. Everybody needs a little dose of it, be it soothing, brazen, or heart-wrenching, and once you’re into it, it’s hard to pull back. Poetry can deeply move you, be as dreamy as it sounds, gives you strength, and melts your heart into a flowing river of feelings.
