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?

Cowards
unknown

You sicken me
 1
whisper more lies
 2
you allow no influence
 3
yet i see you
 4
changing in reaction to those around you
 5
how you hate everything
 6
but wont change it for fear of hurting people
 7
"I love you" you say
 8
but your words are venom to me
 9
burning everything in reach
 10
see this blackened lump
 11
oozing puss from open sores
 12
that is what you have done
 13
it was my heart
 14
now it is something to be reviled
 15
what once was pure is now corrupt and dead
 16
you are the filth that contaminates this world
 17
you are weak
 18
you two with your falsified words
 19
of hope and love that died long ago
 20
you deserve each other
 21
i will not wait for you any longer
 22
"im going to leave him for you"
 23
you were just afraid to let someone go
 24
so now ill leave
 25
with nothing but contempt
 26
for the shell of the person you once were
 27
