Bio:
"It is probable that his father stood between Tom and the sun, and Samuel’s shadow fell on him. Tom wrote secret poetry, and in those days it was only sensible to keep it secret. The poets were pale emasculates, and Western men held them in contempt. Poetry was a symptom of weakness, of degeneracy and decay. To read it was to court catcalls. To write it was to be suspected and ostracized. Poetry was a secret vice, and properly so. No one knows whether Tom’s poetry was any good or not, for he showed it to only one person, and before he died he burned every word." - from East Of Eden by John Steinbeck.

I was embarrassed to write poetry. I took the plunge and came on here. Two weeks later I read this and feel vindicated.

Any positive criticism accepted. I may not change what has already been written but will consider in further works.
I have written these poems in the past as a cathartic exercise. Publishing them, even anonymously, is a big step.
