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:

I Once Knew You
carox3

Scattered post-it-notes
 1
Bright reminders of yesterday
 2
When our love was fleeting
 3
The time of innocence has come and gone
 4
 
 
Drink his nectar and down this ambrosia
 5
Bless yourself with power
 6
Change the world to your liking
 7
Forgetting different minds have unique imaginations
 8
 
 
Count the sheep while tucked in
 9
Stray away from thoughts of me
 10
Pack your bags and move on out
 11
You’ve found yourself a new roommate
 12
 
 
Harass the blinded girl
 13
Bellow out true nature of integrity
 14
Endanger life itself with your mistake
 15
Careful of my hurricane
 16
 
 
Now our lips are silenced
 17
Unable to whisper prayers of reconcile
 18
Listen with wandering eyes
 19
As you dip your fingers farther in
 20
 
 
Drown in a puddle of twister debris
 21
No one deserves this as much as you
 22
Three words end in deceit
 23
I’ll rip you through if you murmur them again
 24
