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:

She Came From Israel and Held Me Hostage
grneyeddevil

Her tongue wags desperately
 1
Like a dog in heat
 2
Her satisfaction is a myth
 3
As I stare in bitter night's retreat
 4
Waiting for my bone
 5
 
 
This raging urge
 6
Never succumbed
 7
Through trials and much patience
 8
Perfection is a game we play
 9
While waiting for false embrace
 10
 
 
Longer still is a wanton lust
 11
A trust of tryst and thrust
 12
I've watched her from up close and afar
 13
Speculation my only reward
 14
Fantasy deep penetrating
 15
 
 
You're a fool and a harlot
 16
A sage and my salvation
 17
My last ditch effort in passion's play
 18
A beginning to my end
 19
My muse that runs astray
 20
 
 
Better saved in cellophane than used and thrown away
 21
