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:

daddys lil girl
iceyliz

Pillows still damp with last night's tears
 1
heart still cold with lies and fears.
 2
Eyes like bottomless wells.
 3
Like tiny droplets of rain, the tears fell.
 4
 
 
Just yesterday i promised to be strong...
 5
to live on.
 6
But today is so different,
 7
my hope is all gone.
 8
 
 
i'll let it go, i'll give it up
 9
i cannot change the world
 10
i cannot change my daddy
 11
              but
 12
forever Daddy's girl.
