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?

Not good enough (edited)
Lou

Clear blue skies,
 1
still warm air,
 2
feelings of love
 3
 
 
Clouds roll in,
 4
tinged with grey,
 5
first a shove 
 6
 
 
Thunder crashes,
 7
loud and close,
 8
next a fist
 9
 
 
Lightening strikes,
 10
bright flashes,
 11
fractured wrist
 12
 
 
A cold change,
 13
icy winds blow,
 14
hiding bruises
 15
 
 
Blizzard of snow,
 16
mist closes in,
 17
still making excuses
 18
 
 
"it's my fault - i'm not good enough"
 19
