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:

suicidal tendencies

theres a tear in your eyes
when i fall away
i pull this trigger
and cease my days
no cries i'll receive
when im finally gone
just hateful farewells
from those who have done me wrong
except for you
my angel; my prize
my loving treasure
that kept me alive
until this moment
when i decide
theres no more feeling here
no sense of pride
you're so far away
and cant stop me now
you're out of my reach
and with someone else
im left with my anger
my love;my cries
i feel just one blast
and then im alive
