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:

A Dream
ofgreen

I kiss your lips
 1
and brush my lips
 2
Against your ear
 3
It makes you shiver
 4
And so we laugh
 5
And kiss again
 6
And push our bodies
 7
Against each other
 8
Until we feel
 9
A spreading heat
 10
Between our legs
 11
and touch our feet
 12
together
 13
your toes are cold
 14
You look at me
 15
I love you
 16
Our eyes are locked
 17
And then they close
 18
As our lips meet
 19
For the hundredth time
 20
In a short time
 21
Your breath is sweet
 22
Like flowers
 23
I hold you close
 24
You sigh, and smile
 25
I smile back
 26
As We fall asleep
 27
We breath together
 28
Our hearts beating
 29
gently, together
 30
