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:

Rollercoaster Ride
Candy_Girl

I hate when I fall
 1
And can’t get up
 2
When my heart
 3
Weighs me down
 4
And I struggle to stand
 5
I know one day
 6
I will get back up again
 7
But right now it feels like an eternity
 8
I hurt and want to cry
 9
But I know that will not help
 10
I hate being alone
 11
And crying for someone
 12
But when I earn them
 13
I am hurt once again
 14
Is there no right and wrong
 15
No way to stay up
 16
Why does it have to go up and down so much?
 17
It’s so unfair
 18
