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?

Infatuation
free2xpress

Darkness falls
 1
and here I wait
 2
at my window
 3
for your sake...
 4
 
 
Tapping stones
 5
let me know
 6
you wait for me
 7
down below ...
 8
 
 
The moon is full
 9
the stars shine bright
 10
we run away
 11
into the night ...
 12
 
 
The lust is strong
 13
our love is true
 14
in the darkness
 15
I give myself to you ...
 16
 
 
But after all
 17
you flee the scene
 18
im left alone
 19
I feel unclean ...
 20
 
 
My heart is broken
 21
left in two
 22
you ruined me
 23
yet I yearn for you ....
 24
