If you do, what genre? Or are you more of a reader? :P
Do you have any writing tips or exercises that you usually do?
Would you like to post something you've written?

I write songs more than poetry. I have an older one that I'm willing to share and make public since I already put it on GAG before. This is a song I wrote for a friend going through a rough time since she basically got played along by a guy and then ditched for another girl suddenly.
Anyway, here they are:
Hearts can bleed out pain
From the purest notion drenched in blood stains
With this fate I'll ride
Through the lonely night
Chains rattling through my bones
Bounded by a lie
CHORUS: I tried to take a chance again
But this aching feeling steals my rhythm
When will I have to dance again
Under this god-forsaken moon
Eyes soft with a kiss
To seal my beat inside a box from Judas
Just another pawn
Sacrificed and gone
I'm left only with the truth
And the pain of moving on
CHORUS 2: Just another soul on the mend
Victim of a poor decision
To ever take a chance again
And dance away with you
Time came up and paid a visit
To drag to hell my innoncence
He created scars along the way
What hurts us most are the men we'll save
You told me we'd be great together
Building trust you saved for later
To crush my glass heart to history
Once again (sustained)

i'm both a reader and a writer (though i write under my real name and don't post here).
i enjoy a little of everything~ i've written poetry, music, prose, even some full-length books that i hope to publish one day. my book/theatre reviews (and one poem) have been published in anthologies and online.
i wish i had more time to write, but work and family obligations kinda got in the way. my only advice is to always be open to criticism~ if i like your work, i'll tell you so, and ditto if i don't (though, if i don't like it, i'll always provide suggestions on how to improve).
however, the most fun i have is writing intentionally-awful "emo" poems, complete with dreadful misspellings and the mad rhyming skillz (i don't rhyme in my actual poetry, lol).
here is one i wrote for a friend's birthday some years back (it's become an inside joke):
ur face iz lyke a prity fl0w3r
i think bout u when im in the sh0w3r
n my black <3s bout 2 brake
so cut it up lyke em0 caek!
