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:

Breathless
jromero4

Breathless, breathless, breathless....
 1
Breathless I become when your lips touch my lips
 2
Time stops... for seconds, for minutes
 3
Anxious I become as you come closer to me
 4
My heart pounds harder and harder as I feel your breathe over my body
 5
Looking into your eyes makes me weak
 6
My heart begins to race faster and faster
 7
You read my soul like an open book
 8
My heart shouts out I'm yours, I'm yours
 9
 
 
Breathless I become when you embrace me with your arms
 10
Your strong hands over my soft body
 11
As you stroke my cheek with your finger, I whisper how much I love you
 12
I begin to loss breathe for now the secret is out
 13
My heart becomes vulerable, to your touches, your warm voice, your love
 14
 
 
Breathless, Breathless, Breathless, you have left me
 15
Return to me my love, embrace me and kiss me once again
 16
