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:

Time Goes

I realize my life isnt the end,
i know i am not perfect,
and neither are you!
the life as we know is crumbling.
either be cause of me,
or because of you.
i cant seem to grasp what is happening,
my heart has changed
and i am sorry for that.
lead your own life,
before you wait for mine.
chase after yours,
not waiting for time.
time doesnt stop,
time doesnt leave,
but makes the day grow grey.
and older indeed!
