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:

Recall
smuda

my soul in malady
 1
my heart bleeding
 2
I cry out a sad melody
 3
days numbering
 4
 
 
burning with desire lost in my own emotions
 5
languid with despair
 6
just a specter living in deception
 7
yearning for your care
 8
 
 
running against a wall
 9
destined to live in the past
 10
I am just A doll
 11
a Memory long since cast
 12
