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:


Your Eyes are bright as a shining Star,
The endless Glare that they Endure,
You sweet tilting Head that stays in my dreams
Your consist Words, Embracing  my Heart,
But here comes along  the Broken Part.
Your completely not unavable in a emtional Strutt
You said your words with a icing Heart
'I feel for you, This Is all I doubt
Your the one I want to need, please hear me shout
I will not give without a fight,
Goodnight dear love always in my mind.
