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?

Sugar Coated Tear Drops

Your superficial image is all the world can see
 3
With your glossy mags designer bags
 4
Your messed up life And all the trash
 5
Is hidden underneath
 6
 
 
Under folds of fakery
 7
Your Candy canes and plastic dreams
 8
Sugar coated happiness
 9
Which underneath is all a mess
 10
 
 
When cherry drops are raining
 11
it’s all just fine for you
 12
With your endless cash and money bags
 13
And the pretty lies that make you sad
 14
All hidden underneath
 15
 
 
Under folds of fakery
 16
Your candy canes and plastic dreams
 17
Sugar coated happiness which
 18
Underneath is all a mess
 19
 
 
Your pretty little sunshine world is falling
 20
With your shameless style and forced out smile
 21
Just stop stand back and look a while
 22
At what’s hidden underneath
 23
 
 
Under folds of fakery
 24
Your Candy canes and plastic dreams
 25
Sugar coated happiness
 26
Which underneath is all a mess
