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:

Wake Up
GS69sPimp

I feel like I'm feeding off you.
 1
There's nothing left for me to do.
 2
But wait for you to say no.
 3
I'm so fucking upset
 4
and feel so pathetic
 5
to think I can change your mind.
 6
 
 
Some say give up, It's not worth the pain.
 7
Some day I'll wake up, and watch this fade away.
 8
 
 
I feel like I'm bleeding for you.
 9
But I get nothing in return.
 10
When will I wake up from this shit?
 11
I'm so fucking upset
 12
and now I'm done: I've had it
 13
to think I'd make you mine.
 14
 
 
Some say give up, It's not worth the pain.
 15
Some day I'll wake up, and watch this fade away.
 16
Some say I'm weak, and I'm the one to blame.
 17
But someday I'll end it all!
