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:

Candle
septem

This light has been rekindled
 1
 
 
to walk anew in the abyss that is my soul
 2
 
 
Bringing joy to the spirit that knows no fear
 3
 
 
The fearless
 4
 
 
Fearing
 5
 
 
to lose the one light that has ever shone
 6
 
 
with such passion
 7
 
 
That it could save me from this pointless existance
 8
 
 
Please
 9
 
 
Keep this flame
 10
 
 
Burning
 11
 
 
This candle
 12
 
 
dripping wax
 13
 
 
To seal the cracks
 14
 
 
that have formed on the boundaries
 15
 
 
seperating the Corrupt part of me from
 16
 
 
The reality that is me
 17
