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:

There is a Passion
crome66

There is a passion for life
 1
There is a love for living
 2
A fire so strong that it melts away its own cliché…
 3
And consumes a life…
 4
This life however is not gone, it is far from gone
 5
It is held up; it is brought into a new light
 6
A light so bright it too burns away its own cliché…
 7
And for years that fire will burn
 8
The light may dim but it is forever fixed upon that single life
 9
The life that fights
 10
The life that struggles
 11
The life that overcomes
 12
Until there is only a moment
 13
The moment when a single deep breath,
 14
And a blink of an eye
 15
Would orchestrate a realization
 16
That an entire life’s work
 17
Had come to fruition.
 18
And in that moment the fire will spread
 19
To a new life
 20
And it will burn
 21
