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:

Disgracing Eden
FangzOfFire

Hollow fingers disgrace the flowers of the earth
 1
Soiling delicate petals with invisible fingerprints
 2
Poisoning the air with toxic breath of impurity
 3
Taking that which isn't theirs
 4
To one who gave them life by accident
 5
Stealing that which isn't given to them
 6
For someone who would shun them by mere mistake
 7
 
 
Leaving damaged life and broken spirit
 8
Abandoning unpitied stems to decay unceremoniously
 9
 
 
For shallow moments of unfulfilled happiness
 10
Before returning to rape mother nature
 11
Who stands in a puddle of human souls
 12
Without getting her feet dampened
 13
