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:

Over You
almost_

I want to be able to see through your smile
 1
So that I can recognize the pain
 2
I want to see past your eyes
 3
so they can no longer lie to me
 4
and tell me I'm in love with you.
 5
 
 
You were so untouchable
 6
Sheilded by your ignorance
 7
Your front
 8
Your attempt at what you thought was better
 9
And your weaponry
 10
 
 
You knew me all to well
 11
You knew how to get to me
 12
What to do
 13
When to do it
 14
 
 
The armor was feirce
 15
But the meathod, feircer
 16
More painful
 17
Cutting deeper
 18
With every attempt of coming closer
 19
