poetry doesn't necessarily have to explain feelings, just express them.which is different.
i am not agree with this.
but this can be true,
if it doesn't explain your feelings, you (the poet) will dislike it. It may be liked by readers though.
but still, in my opinion, if my life were a detailed film or a book, or if i were a story character, i believe the writers and poets couldnt explain me, they could only be good at explain "what they perceived", but this is not me. to explain an emotion is supposed to feel it. otherwise we can olny tell what we know about that emotion, and this act isnt the same as feeling it.
