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:

Hollow
Rajji

Run run with me you’ll see the sun
 1
You’ll feel warm
 2
You’ll feel my glow.
 3
And with me your life seems to just flow,
 4
But I’m always winter
 5
And you can call me Hollow
 6
 
 
I’ve abused the absurd
 7
I’ve done things the likes of which
 8
You’ve never even heard
 9
I’m open to experience
 10
I don’t care if you’re hurt in the mess
 11
It’s not my fault
 12
Your naïve lack of clairvoyance
 13
You can call me Hollow
 14
 
 
I once was human
 15
Now im only broken
 16
And apathetic
 17
I used to be quietly famous
 18
Now I’m overrated
 19
Because words can bring faith
 20
And I’m alive because I’m faithless
 21
Come with me, and I’ll show you shameless
 22
 
 
You think I’m bitter
 23
But I’m misunderstood
 24
I’m always winter,
 25
It’s always cold,
 26
And who runs into the open arms of the snow?
 27
It’s such a feeling of alone.
 28
Can’t you be the one for me to hold?
 29
 
 
Silly girl, I’m really quite shallow
 30
I won’t care about you in tomorrow
 31
Bitch, I told you I’d show you shameless.
 32
 
 
You can call me Hollow
 33
