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?

you've walked away
 1
again
 2
lonelyeyed summer rain
 3
true friend
 4
pulling at your face
 5
carves out your eyes
 6
sentimental cage
 7
all alone
 8
 
 
by the windowpane in your screams
 9
septic wooden floor
 10
forgetful and cold
 11
dawn view with swollen eyes
 12
do you compromise your dreams
 13
with butterflies and nets
 14
grey white walls peeling
 15
(wrist)
 16
 
 
autumn air
 17
ivied shut
 18
feel the dead leaf
 19
through the mist
 20
feel the waves
 21
wrist
 22
all alone
 23
