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:

a thousand letters
vpark

A thousand letters have been written
 1
And none have seen your eyes
 2
A million times I think about you
 3
Of thoughts I must disguise
 4
 
 
I erased all of my hard drive
 5
Of the days I spent pouring my soul
 6
But the future memories of you and me
 7
Are the ones that I cant let go
 8
 
 
I still remember the places
 9
I kissed you the first and final time
 10
I know you take Mister Distraction there
 11
To hopefully erase me from your mind
 12
 
 
I know we always stumbled,
 13
more than we ever did glide
 14
I know I take all the blame
 15
I am sorry that I let you slide
 16
 
 
You fell right through my fingers
 17
Maybe it was easier to cause a fight
 18
But maybe heaven and eternity
 19
Will one day shed some light
 20
 
 
A thousand letter have been written.
 21
And none will ever see your eyes.
 22
