@tigers88 - I think that many of them did have a kind of genius. But make no mistake. Poetry doesn't come easily to anyone, even the greats.
I have read a number of biographies of the great poets and they struggled mighty to get their writing to sound the way they wanted it to sound. Some of them slaved over poems for years or went nearly mad as they suffered through writer's block. Their situation might not be that much different than yours. So don't give up. Good writing never comes easily.
