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:

Lost in time
richi978

Pain is inevitable
 1
Memory sticks strong
 2
Steady in the future
 3
But living  in the past
 4
Try to crawl back
 5
To make everything the same
 6
Confused in a world where its hard to fit in
 7
Drinking to forget hard to crack a real grin
 8
Without faith and some confidence
 9
In that place you will stay
 10
With a heart full of pain
 11
See your self your ashamed
 12
a meaning less soul sit and wait to be saved
 13
Until you get up
 14
And you fight for some change
 15
You fight and you fight cause you know in your head
 16
Where your sitting on top and you rise once again
 17
