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:

Dear Friend
al444

Dear Friend,
 1
I no longer want tomorrow to come
 2
Every moment
 3
A ticking clock
 4
Till you are pulled away
 5
 
 
Dear Friend
 6
How can a face once so strange
 7
Be so familiar
 8
 
 
Dear friend
 9
I will never forget,
 10
I will never forget
 11
The moment we laughed
 12
We danced
 13
The moment only you will ever know
 14
I will never lose the secrets
 15
Whispered through
 16
Time
 17
I may not be by your side
 18
But dear friend
 19
I am never gone
 20
I am only a heart string away
 21
I will always lie in the memories
 22
In the moment
 23
That was built through awkward pauses
 24
And impossible thoughts
 25
And weird impressions
 26
I will never forget the moments you saw me
 27
You saw the self-unprotected
 28
Unguarded
 29
I will never forget you dear friend.
 30
Dear friend
 31
Once just a title of a letter
 32
Now a precious thought
 33
A friend so dear
 34
A connection so fragile
 35
So dear yet so far
 36
You are a friend.
 37
