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:

untouchable as a star
fefrisch

It's useless to pretend, my dear
 1
That you don't desire me
 2
'Cos everytime our eyes meet
 3
I know for sure
 4
You love me in silence
 5
 
 
Untouchable as a star you are
 6
So close, although more far
 7
But not out of my sight, out of my mind
 8
Untouchable as a star you are
 9
And I was blind by your light
 10
 
 
(Can't you see?)
 11
 
 
Don't try to stop
 12
True souls to love
 13
Is unfatable, is a shame
 14
Resistance is futile
 15
Because love does not care about age
 16
It's not even a concern when it truly speaks
 17
 
 
(Can't you see?)
 18
 
 
It's useless to pretend
 19
That you don't think of me
 20
Whenever you close your eyes
 21
I gain life
 22
Everytime she kisses you
 23
You look out for the lips of mine
 24
Every nite when you sleep
 25
My soul finds thy
 26
 
 
Untouchable as a star you are
 27
So close, although more far
 28
But not out of my sight, out of my mind
 29
Untouchable as a star you are
 30
And I was blind by your light
 31
 
 
All of this happens because you did so desire
 32
I could be in your arms by now, oh dearest fire!
 33
But that's what it fits in your preys
 34
My devotion can not even from your mind wash it away
 35
 
 
Just don't fool yourself
 36
Believin that I can wait an eternity
 37
Untill your blinder comes off
 38
And you finally understand
 39
That we should be together
 40
 
 
Have the angels ever spoke to ya
 41
'more prohibited, more desirable'??
 42
