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?

Questions
Joy

Again I'm forgotten
 1
I'm on my own
 2
Left with my thoughts
 3
All hope has flown
 4
No one to trust
 5
So I must hide
 6
Nobody cares
 7
Everyone lies
 8
Empty promises
 9
From a reaching hand
 10
Inside myself
 11
The pain expands
 12
Filled with questions
 13
Will I ever find
 14
Anyone on whom
 15
I can rely?
 16
I'm tired of these feelings
 17
Loneliness and hate
 18
Is there any person
 19
With whom I can relate?
