Hello, I recently joined Poemhunter. I have been posting most of my poems on Facebook and on Allpoetry.com, but I want to reach a wider audience. I've been writing since I can remember, but started to take it seriously at the age of 18. Go checkout my poet profile and comment on one of my poems.
Have a wonderful day!

Good day, I will most definitely say,
To each individual who has a voice to share,
An appearance to air, a spiritual moment to compare,
A conclusion to declare, a wit to endear.
Please have the time to check out my voice
And leave a comment that can only uplift in advice.
Kind regards Marilyn 'Redcoma' George.

This is my first time posting my poetry outside of Deviant Art, and I have to say I really like the site. I'm an amateur poet, author, digital artist trying to improve my skills and develop my own distinctive style. I enjoy any constructive criticism I can get (which sadly isn't much) , but that does not deter me from working to improve through self-critique. I found my love of writing poetry about a year and a half ago and I haven't let up since then, I love the way words mold so beautifully to create something new out of simple consonants and vowels. I usually create free-verse poetry, but I do occasionally dabble in other forms from time to time. I hope to continue to find happy experiences on this site, and become a productive member!
If you are interested in seeing my poetry please check out my gallery here, or on deviantart here: http://shadowysilence.deviantart.com/gallery/37142863

Jennifer Johnson publishes her first book of poetry
She is a 2002 graduate from Mitchell High School and a 2012 graduate from Ivy Tech Community College. Her first book " One Mind's Words" is available at createspace.com and Amazon.com. She is currently seeking to present her book to local stores for sales. She was recently featured on WBIW.com for her participation in a writing contest for Reader's Digest. She is also a contributer to " Stars in our Hearts" through a contest with WorldPoetryMovement.com. She is also on Poetry.com. She plans to convert her book to a Kindle version and publish more works in the near future.
The works are about the challenges of changing from teen to adult. " Even if my book is not a success I still plan to continue to write and publish. It is my passion." she says. " If my words only touch one person's heart then I have succeeded in what I have set out to do. Sales are not my main goal."

Greetings poets. I've flirted with this site before then strayed. Now I'm back and ready to make a commitment. I need friends and discourse. Everyone's welcome to read my poems as I'll be reading yours. I'm also going to be giving away my first novel away for free (in serial form) on WordPress http://bbehindthewheel.wordpress.com/

Been a poet since I was kicked out of a Physics class for narrating an apparently not-so-funny poem about Physics.
I am an experimentalist by nature....and by it's very nature.... a few poems I write have been controversial in nature. I would paste a sample for your reference.
This is my homepage - ] www.poemhunter.com/sajit-r-nair/. Do check in. No compulsion but perhaps it might help you in understanding my poems a bit more.
Feel free to send in your Feedback & comments.Please note.. Criticisms in all forms gratefully accepted.. Questioning on Parenthood.. not so much...
One of my poems...
'My Mother... The W*ore'
Born in the brothels of White-chapel...
You would easily mistake me for a swine..
I wouldn't blame you, good Sir, for that...
the credit would go to the dear mother of mine...
You jump into conclusions about my ancestry...
About the Pig that might have been my father...
Honestly I little cared for who he was..
the possibilities countless.. I painfully gather...
I could romanticize my mother's tragedy..
the barbaric girl-trading in this world..
But dis not the sob story of a common whore..
This is the tale of my dear mother.
She never uttered about her dealings...
Painfully aware of an unbreachable wall..
Her money equally spent on my siblings...
all five of us 'bastards' to the core.
She never knew how to read..
yet stayed with us through those unending nights..
And when we used to show her our reports...
d*mn! ! ! When delighted..she was an awesome sight! !
You would never call her an 'ideal' mother...
Her past clouding your views..
and yet she was always with us..
inconspicuous as the morning dew..
She stood behind in all our victories..
never coming to the fore..
She feared about our 'bright' futures..
so far untarnished by her chore..
and then that day came... I introduced her to my lady..
anxiousness all over her face... she came shyly to the fore..
Unconcerned by her past, my lady gave her a kiss...
and then my mother smiled.. the happiest.. never before
It's been 8 years since that day...
my beautiful daughter by my side
a few roses for a stony grave
and for my lovely mother who never died
