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:

Such is the end to every story
Pecquie

Maybe our story
 1
Was never really meant to be
 2
And, as such, should have remained untold
 3
 
 
Lurking in the shadows under your bed
 4
Like secrets never shared
 5
Such should have been your love for me
 6
 
 
Maybe if we had seen the foolishness of it all
 7
We could have stopped this speeding train
 8
We could have let it go in time
 9
 
 
But now the lips I loved to kiss
 10
The eyes in which I'd willingly drown
 11
And the face of a loved one
 12
 
 
All is lost in the fog, a groggy memory of you
 13
As I am drowning every minute of every hour
 14
Consumed by midnight moonshine
 15
