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:

reflections of nothing
shakeit

Screaming, as the silence echoes in my head
 1
(in my head)
 2
Staring in the mirror, The reflection
 3
Reflections of nothing; reflections of me
 4
There was a loss of all hope when I was alone
 5
 
 
I see nothing
 6
 
 
Staring through the image, through myself
 7
And still seeing nothing at all
 8
Your visions open my mind
 9
Echoing in my head
 10
Corroding my walls
 11
Walls that continue to crumble
 12
But still
 13
All I can see
 14
In the mirror
 15
Are Reflections
 16
Of nothing at all.
 17
