    Of course poems can be used as lyrics. Please take some time and pull up lyrics online. But not just lyrics to current music you like but lyrics to songs dating back into the 60-70's, etc... Also sounds like you might want to spend some time on studying methods of writing poetry. The internet has endless resources for poetry instruction. And take your time and enjoy your quest.
