Why do you write poetry?

I write poetry because I have to. I love the way that in a poem you can string words together in a variety of ways. I love the whole structure and form of the poem and the way that in a poem you can say a lot in very little. It can be very very powerful in that you can read a poem and it can stay with you forever. I'm not saying that my poems do that but it's something like all poets I aspire to.
