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:

Georgio Armani

There he is once again with his extravagant watch, Walking the halls with an ego the size of Mount Rushmore.
With his rich clothes and his self centered ways, he whispers to her "She likes me"
A finger points in my direction, making me want to burst.
He isn't only wealthy, and arrogant, he is also a liar.
Telling secrets he shouldn't reveal.
Acting as though he is the sun, and we are the planets that revolve around him.
Taking my heart and snapping it in half.
Making me run and hide in fear.
All the things I loved about him,
changed when I got to know him,
Now there is only one thing that attracts me to this pathetic man,
Not something that would make me fall once more,but...
The fancy aroma as he walks past me.
The scent of Georgio Armani.
