What defines poetry as confessional is not the subject matter, but how the issue represented is explored. Confessional poetry explores personal details about the authors' life without meekness, modesty, or discretion. Because of this, confessional poetry is a popular form of creative writing that many people enjoy not only to read but to embark upon. Another element that is specific to this poetry is self-revelation achieved through creating the poem. This passes on to the reader, and a connection is made.
Confessional poetry will always be a trend in literature. It's a trend that's truly a classic in the world of poetics. As poets continue to write, they will always confess their experiences to anyone who will listen.
