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?

 10
lofted pleasure assumes
 11
its poor notes accordingly.
 12
 
 
Imploring her gratitude,
 13
my hands lay wounded at my sides    
 14
for reaching into her darkness.
 15
As she whispers the words,
 16
"I love you" they fly
 17
off slamming walls
 18
back and forth in my head.
 19
 
 
Its so easy
 20
to endure
 21
besides the fact
 22
its been
 23
so difficult
 24
to control.
 25
 
 
I keep pace, and
 26
watch her eyes roll heavenly
 27
back into her rotten confines.
 28
I may finally change due to
 29
her thought provoking destructing
 30
trends and churn her with
 31
my reasons for not giving in.
