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?

Forever And A Day..

Forever And A Day..
 1
 
 
Im ready to feel your breath on my neck
 2
your lips on my cheek
 3
your hands on my waist
 4
 
 
Im ready to wake up next to you everyday
 5
hand in hand
 6
face to face
 7
 
 
Im ready to cook your dinners
 8
and nag you for watching sports
 9
Im ready to do your laundry
 10
And ready for so much more
 11
 
 
Im ready to watch you study
 12
And bring you drinks and snacks
 13
Im ready to cuddle on the couch
 14
and rub the stress from your back
 15
 
 
Im ready to have vacations
 16
to plan our wedding day
 17
Im ready to buy our first home
 18
Im ready for you to be okay.
 19
 
 
Im ready to have our babies
 20
to paint the nursery
 21
Im ready for you to kiss my belly
 22
and fight over the name to be
 23
 
 
Im ready to hold your hand
 24
And watch all your dreams come true
 25
But its not in my hands now
 26
This can be our future- this is all up to you.
 27
 
 
Im ready to watch our life
 28
As it perfectly falls in place
 29
Im ready to be with you forever
 30
forever, and a day.
 31
