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:


You’re the one girl
The only girl who has been able to take me down
Like no other girl has ever done it before
Damn I wish that this dream doesn’t end in a lest be friends
Because all I wanted was to make this dream perfect in any way
And even make you feel like little princes
Because you deserve more than jest I love you and a little kiss  
Girl you have change the ways I have ever felt before  
Because before you there wasn’t an after
Because it was all dark and when I saw the light that you had and then for fill my deepest feelings
And discover that I have this feeling in first place
And then put them in a piece of paper so you can understand me
And  my feelings  that are  deep within myself
