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:

Her Eyes

her eyes so perfect and pure
an ocean of bliss
tho you cant see the end
you feel so secure
a beauty never known
filled with joy and happyness
for with one look into these eyes
a glimpse of heaven is shown
reality rushes back
and the paradise you knew
is simply the sweetest sin
as her eyes open
and you gaze in
you lose grip on this reality
once again....
