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:

Imperfect Charm
MattPat

Imperfect love, take my heart, I am yours
 1
For just to share your eyes again
 2
I’d wish to travel back in time
 3
To see you not, but think so vivid
 4
My heart that feels love enough to jade the blade
 5
That cut, bleeding many drops from known things
 6
In shattered pieces dwindled over dancing eyes
 7
I hurt myself and cannot see
 8
Can’t ya tell me least where’s to go
 9
While ya urge my feet to leave your home
 10
