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:

Neverending light

Enchanting words,thrilling rides,started fading away,
i was alone no one was there in the world of sorrow and fear,
i saw my world cracking apart as i glanced around my original sphere,
i wanted to cry as hard as i could but nobody really wanted to hear
my friend just said theres no use looking back as there are so many people who wanted to tear,
so then i became lady like Blair who wanted to scare everyone who cares
i walked and walked on the place where there was no air realizing the fact theirs nothing far or near,
right then i saw the lightening so clear on the scary black sky,i screamed out loud as it was very rare ,
i got the odd feeling as i heard the echo of laughter and giggling as if somebody really wanted to come near
i looked around in the slow gear , i saw a pink lining getting appear,
i was shocked the way i felt because she just gave me a purple dare,
as i walked a little  further ,the black forest turned into chandelier of stairs,
her smile,her tales .begins to overtake
she took my hand and we glanced in the mirror,we saw  bluebirds who were sitting on the fruitcake,
But then i saw a tear in her eye and to my surprise she started to disappear,
the greedy dark shadow took my grey teddy away,
i weep,i cried as i looked at the sky,it was blue but my fingers went dry,
i prayed to god for giving me back my last hope of survival in the ocean  if insincere,
therefore i got back my lucky pink charm,she makes me feel happy ,and nobody can harm.
the beauty of our friendship,the colorful world of calm!
