Prose is a form of writing in which sentences have unequal length. Poetry is a rhythmic form of writing which uses fixed length unit (meter) and similarity of sound between words.


Prose is used in writing with a fairly neutral tone. Poetry used to be sung and is associated with emotions.

See the points below!



  • Straightforward
  • No "decoration"
  • No line breaks
  • Looks like a block of words


  • Expressive
  • More "decorated"
  • Has line breaks
  • Shape depends on the length and the intent

My source!

The differences between them are always not so clear. But the points that I gave you are generally accepted.
I hope this helps! :D
