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:

"Lost "

Where have they gone
                         Wishes coloured gold
                          Like leaves in autumn season
Hope,coloured  blue
Like the brightest of skies
                          Dreams,coloured red and purple
                           Like my heart once was....
Clear sight has gone blurry
My judgement gone wrong
                            Black,brown and grey
                            Colour my old emotions
I have died inside.....
I am 'lost' in life
                             And the beauty of colour
                             Is missing.....
