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:

It reminded me *changed*
TearDrop

As we lay there quiet
 1
I was reminded of all the reasons why I lust you
 2
Your smile,
 3
and the way it teased at me seductively
 4
Your laugh,
 5
and the way it tempted me
 6
Your eyes,
 7
and the way they seem to hypnotize me
 8
As we sat there silent
 9
I was reminded of all the reasons why I love you
 10
Your smile,
 11
and the way it brings such life into me
 12
Your laugh,
 13
and the way it makes everything okay
 14
Your eyes,
 15
and the way them seems to read my thoughts  
 16
and how they look into mine and feel something
 17
something special
 18
