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?

Morphine Kisses (song)
godisnowhere

Your morphine kisses take the pain away
 1
Still I can't help but feel afraid
 2
Your morphine isn't here to stay.
 3
 
 
I need morphine kisses on my lips
 4
I cannot breathe without this fix
 5
All I need is one more kiss
 6
And then I swear I'm done with this.
 7
 
 
Chorus: Morphine kisses on your lips
 8
Frigid frozen finger tips
 9
I remember nights like this
 10
With morphine kisses on our lips
 11
 
 
Feeling naughty, feeling nice
 12
Fingertips as cold as ice
 13
My self-sufficient sacrifice.
 14
 
 
I feel the tremors up my spine
 15
I feel your hand slip out of mine
 16
I beg of you, just one more time
 17
Just one more hit and I'll be fine.
 18
 
 
Chorus
 19
 
 
These morphine kisses aren't for me
 20
Just go to her and you will see
 21
That I've already over-d'ed
 22
Breathing's a technicality.
 23
 
 
Chorus
 24
 
 
Morphine kisses on your lips
 25
Frigid frozen finger tips
 26
I cannot sleep on nights like this
 27
With morphine kisses on her lips.
 28
