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:

Bad Friday
soulfull

it's how one bad finger disables the rest
 1
just one lost look puts a hole in your chest
 2
one precious treasure becomes hindrance and pest
 3
only one doubtful thought contaminates your best
 4
unless
 5
you block who you are
 6
and the questions you're trying to live
 7
keep building up the wall
 8
intuition knows will give
 9
don't stop wasting time falling down
 10
running circles round and round
 11
appreciating new perspective
 12
even when new means painted over
 13
cuz shabby layers run deep
 14
and curling up edges keep
 15
you looking
 16
for the meaning
 17
of loss:
 18
 
 
does He take away the little things
 19
because He loves the details
 20
or have i been giving away my mind
 21
just hoping to fill my sails...
 22
 
 
have i failed?
 23
