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:


he's sweet sexy adorable compassionate unique
and sensitive hes the kind of angel you can't let go no matter what
he's like a fantasy just waiting to happen,
he brings lots of joy and happyness to your heart
he's some one whose always there for you no matter whats the problem
he guides you through hard times
he listens to your every word,
the way he understands you its like you have his full attention
the way he makes u feel, its like you cant hardly think,
he's the one whose inresistible, loving, thoughtful, soulful,
the love he shares and brings is unconditional love
he's like a rhythm and you love his every sound
he's like a sweet misery i hate to admit it
he means alot to me,
hes like a lost love he has an unforgetable,
unconditional, indescribable, emotional love
his love is always sweet like the taste of warm honey
hes like my spinal cord without him im just skin and bone
and thats why he's an angel
