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?

Victor

My thoughts are fluid,
 1
My eyes are bare,
 2
My wings are broken,
 3
The skies could tell
 4
 
 
My body descends,
 5
Like a falling leaf,
 6
Angels tried to catch me,
 7
But my spirit is just weak
 8
 
 
...
 9
 
 
My blood caressed the earth
 10
What a bounty of red!
 11
Their eyes were nailed upon me
 12
I was your slave until the end
 13
 
 
Death is a blessing,
 14
Death is divine,
 15
Death is the beginning,
 16
Let death be mine!
 17
