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:

The Mirage
al444

Deeply tired eyes
 1
Ever expanding thighs
 2
The plot is thickening
 3
As I sink into my lies
 4
 
 
Don’t be fooled
 5
You hardy fellow
 6
Though I play
 7
A great falsetto
 8
 
 
A beautiful voice
 9
Is poison too
 10
If beyond the rhythm
 11
Nothingness looms
 12
 
 
Reach a high
 13
Just fall so low
 14
Watching how easily
 15
Spirituality blows
 16
 
 
Like a whisper to the moon
 17
And the weaver on the loom
 18
Secrets shared between too friends
 19
One inanimate means the other pretends
 20
