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:

Secret Keeper
SweetPain

Those piercing gray eyes,
 1
and that fading dyed red hair  
 2
Behind all this there are many secrets  
 3
kept behind mysterious clouds of twisting lies.  
 4
In this repression she seeths anxiety.  
 5
Her inner pain comes out in physical form  
 6
when her breakfast has come up again
 7
on the bathroom floor.
