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:

Caught in a kid- like crush
wintersun

Dose he -- doesn't he?
 1
Will he-- won't he?
 2
My mind right now is going crazy
 3
 
 
Talk to me-- tell me
 4
Ask me-- confront me
 5
Either way just tell me honestly
 6
 
 
Watching -- waiting
 7
Sitting -- aching
 8
And no, for the record my heart isn't breaking
 9
 
 
Wondering -- thinking
 10
Stewing -- debating
 11
Is this really worth all the pacing
 12
 
 
Never before never again
 13
Never felt love never felt loves pain
 14
Never has one person made my thoughts so insane.
 15
 
 
It's strange it's overwhelming me
 16
We're friends we're not all coupley
 17
This is some kind of irrationality!
