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 Smile

Its magic;
something that worked wonders for me,
made me a complete person,
It gave a meaning to WE.
Helped me when I was down,
One sight was enough for me
to forget the pains that I beared,
You never had to say things
That you wanted to,
You never had to look at me
when you hid behind those beautiful
lips that reflected a sensitive child in you.
One glance at it made my day,
I used to forget what I always wanted to say,
You called it your Style,
But for me it would always remain
                      SMILE !!!
