Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

Random Poem:

My love for you

My love for you is like fake flowers
So bright and unknowing
A love that last forever
And gives me power
The power you give me keeps me going
If I come home for a bad day
You are there to comfort me
This love I have needs to be showing
The love I have cannot be measured
Not to a sunrise on a snowy day
And not to the most beautiful day in the world
Seeing you gives me a since of pleasure
I love you Robert with all my heart
Please let this only be the start.
