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:

Cuts
SpazinStoner

The cuts become more frequent.
 1
And I begin to tell more lies.
 2
Hiding the truth behind me,
 3
I can tell they want to cry.
 4
Counting the scars on my wrists,
 5
I see myself falling to a bottomless pit.
 6
As I open the slits on my wrist again,
 7
I can tell that my world is fading
 8
And my life has seen the end.
