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:

Done
Anna-Erb

You're pathetic
 1
cuz you want him
 2
so get down on your knees
 3
Just know that what you long to see
 4
is all make-believe
 5
 
 
It'll wipe the smile from your face
 6
and the gleam from your eyes
 7
No matter what you feel for him
 8
he will never feel the same inside
 9
 
 
He'll say he loves you
 10
but won't mean it
 11
yet your hope continues to rise
 12
Until you see the truth
 13
standing right before your eyes
 14
 
 
Try to stay blind
 15
so you don't see it
 16
It's too hard to accept
 17
 
 
You know your world will crumble down
 18
when the truth is admitted
 19
Causing havoc on what you had
 20
as your fantasy land
 21
Nothing you can do will ever stop it
 22
as soon as you turn the corner
 23
his hand goes down some other girl's pants.
 24
