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:

Lonely Soul
MywrdsRmyAiR

Here I lie  
 1
in solemn agony  
 2
A lonely soul  
 3
looking for company  
 4
    
 5
the wind, how it moans
 6
it's own unique cry,
 7
hungry for it's own kind of company
 8
    
 9
the crack of thunder  
 10
and the subtle cry of rain  
 11
the whistle of the leaves  
 12
    
 13
nature's lonely soul  
 14
all around  
 15
everyone is waiting for something  
 16
someone,  
 17
some company  
 18
    
 19
a lonely soul wants to roam  
 20
but roam not alone any longer
 21
