I read some of the poems.

And, although I would much prefer if you posted them here individually, so I could more
easily address them, I can say this:

They are somewhat nicely composed, but they don't give much in terms of creativity
or depth, not to me, anyway. Poetry is a tricky thing, as mostly it only makes sense
to the writer, but the mark of a great poet is when the point caries across from the
writer to the reader, while maybe not exactly as intended.

They are a good start, but I would urge you to be more mysterious about your thoughts,
wrap them in layers and layers of depth and analogies, give the reader something to
riddle, something to solve. A good poem is composed when the reader feels like a
genius for understanding it, even if he doesn't :)
