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:

For you...
IsabellaSwan

For you I would climb
 1
the highest mountain peak
 2
swim the deepest ocean
 3
for your love I do seek
 4
 
 
For you I would cross
 5
the rivers most wide
 6
walk the dessert sand
 7
to have you by my side
 8
 
 
For you are the one
 9
who makes me whole
 10
you've captured my heart
 11
and touched my soul
 12
 
 
For you are the one
 13
that stepped out of my dreams
 14
gave me new hope
 15
showed me what love means
 16
 
 
For you alone
 17
are my reason to live
 18
for the compassion you show
 19
and the care you give
 20
 
 
You came into my life
 21
and made me complete
 22
each time I see you
 23
my heart skips a beat
 24
 
 
For you define beauty
 25
in both body and mind
 26
your soft gentle face
 27
is the best I can find
 28
 
 
For you are the one
 29
god sent from above
 30
the angel I needed
 31
for whom I do love
 32
