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:

Him
Faulk

The radiance of heaven
 1
Shines deep within his skin
 2
And of all of the angels
 3
His sin is deep within
 4
He paces back and forth
 5
His heart is full of hate
 6
He sits in a corner
 7
Awaiting his death date
 8
His eyes pierce the deepest
 9
Expansion of depths and heights
 10
He alone sees the wonder
 11
Of seeing all of these sights
 12
To love is to hate
 13
And to hate is to see
 14
All of the joy of living
 15
And to live is just to be
 16
