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:

Calling All Wounded
devilsbelboy

The clovers are all banked in blood now,
 1
and the daises are all wounded, out in the fields
 2
Calling all wounded, you better take shelter,
 3
it's raining hate, the kind that only tends to build
 4
 
 
I'm calling you, the one out there lonely,
 5
crying in his beer, for the one that got away
 6
Calling all wounded, girls take off your panties,
 7
in my heart, feel free to lay all of your blame
 8
 
 
Isis wounds us, she's only here,
 9
to refuse us
 10
Thrown to the Monster of her maze,
 11
she is here to bind us
 12
 
 
The blood drips off of the Golden Axe,
 13
and hope of love is raped in the Garden of Late
 14
Calling all wounded, you are better off dead,
 15
For your love of Isis, can only bring her hate
 16
 
 
Isis wounds us, she's only here,
 17
to refuse us
 18
Thrown to the Monster of her maze,
 19
she is here to bind us
 20
 
 
On the way to a bar,
 21
I drove by Club Fantasy, late last night
 22
Isis, giving a hand job,
 23
out there in the hall
 24
 
 
Isis wounds us, she's only here,
 25
to soothe us
 26
She can be found in the fish tank,
 27
brother, I wish you luck
 28
