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

Nature’s Ying and Yeng
By godfrey morris
Perfect beauty flows in abundance from her bosom
so vividly displayed in divine design
Splendor is sure in green vegetation within the midst
of the sun-lit glow, illuminating the deep blue engulfing sphere
In nature, lies great serenity that leaves all to wonder
for more of its majestic glory. Her secrets are a mystery,
as in its peace great horror wreak
what new ills do omens seek?
The earth trembles, a sudden shock that tend to break the faults of rocks
the violent wind may blow, displacing all earthly things you know
violent fire emerges from a crack to burn all things within its track
water travels upon the earth to sweep and clean for all to weep
earth- wind, fire and water, the elements of our nature’s wonder

New to this site, wondering what people would think of my poems. They're pretty depressing, so keep that in mind. Thanks
