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:

Intense experience

Butterflies flutter the closer it gets. Kissed, caress, teased, licked.
Discovering senses beyond intense. Do things of this nature
intrigue you a bit?
I want you to feel magic. I know a few tricks.
My tongue disappears down your chest then
reappears at your clit.
The arch in your back says you don't want me to quit
I let my tongue dance around slide between your lips.
Then I stop for a moment to build the suspense.
I resume once you moan just under your breath.
I feel your hands on my head as I bring you closer
to climax.
You take a deep breath as you clench your fists.
Your body begins to shake. Every muscle gets stiff.
Your almost confused. You never experienced this.
Beyond intense you lose control as you start to twitch.
Its not a fantasy nor is it a dream.
I am as real as it gets.
