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:

dive
reet

from up here it seems so peaceful
 1
lights glowing like a flame filled with hope
 2
storm clouds thick and gray with remorse
 3
wind blowing my hair all over
 4
rain drops hitting my face so cold and refreshing
 5
the ledge so inviting
 6
close my eyes, pitch black
 7
I'll just lose my balance
 8
I say over and over
 9
heart beat speeds, ready to take the dive
 10
think of it like an ocean
 11
it hits me like a train
 12
your promise to God
 13
you've done every thing wrong but that
 14
so I sit in darkness
 15
letting my thoughts catch up with me
 16
it makes me feel worse
 17
but I've done one thing right
 18
