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?
Development updates from Twitter:
You are not just an Option,
neither are you the Choice;
you are on an entirely different realm,
there among the eternal---
like family, friendship, and illusion.
And if I make you feel like Plan B,
or not part of any plan at all,
my only defense is that I'm living
in the Now, which is the only place
where eternity truly exists.
I will not apologize anymore
for the said and unsaid things,
the between the lines interpreted
in a thousand ways. I am what I seem,
finite to your illusory forever,
(comment on this poem)
