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?

Bad Love Poems in Foreign Languages

que tu no estas el fine.
Yo creo que tu comprendes
que mas dolor yo luchandió de tí.
Espero, querida,
que tu puedes creer
la dia a tus piés.
Ich hoffe,
dass du einmal verstehen wird
dass du bist die schöneste Teufel
im meine Lebens.
Schatz, ich haße dich
und ich liebe dich
jeden langsam minute.
Esperí á ti
qui amore stá é ti.
Dové stá nostra amori? Dové?
Io lottante é ti.
Aspetta mi.
Io sono inamoratta periculoso a tí.
Signor, io sono solamente
aire é ti.
I hope
one day
you will be as powerless
as I feel
writing love poems
in foreign languages.  
That is all.
