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:

to kill two friends
unknown

stage 1:
 1
 
 
three clans in one big family
 2
the most dangerous guys
 3
good in all ways
 4
but bad in both ways
 5
respect for all
 6
disrespect for none.
 7
we all had our parts to play
 8
everyone had his roles
 9
 
 
different issues
 10
we have torn apart
 11
with everyone getting his equal share
 12
snitches,
 13
we have thrown into ditches
 14
with all souls in peace
 15
so many we have abducted from our worlds
 16
to make our laws for freedom stronger
 17
 
 
we all had a single word for a name
 18
silence,simple,smart,sleak,sleek,......
 19
the remain two,
 20
you dont want to know
 21
my clan rezgue(pronounced raiz-gue)
 22
meaning "reality in a crazy world"
 23
but soon it drifts away
 24
someone is blowing the burning flame away
 25
 
 
the strong bond shatters
 26
and our sharp arrows point in our faces
 27
our skills, instincts, weapons
 28
to protect each other
 29
naa, we aim each other
 30
we all have to wear our hoods
 31
i have to be
 32
silence, simple, smart, sleek, sleak
 33
 
 
we are broken into three
 34
but now two
 35
a traitor forms an aliance
 36
to save a face
 37
and be the good guy
 38
for a reason to bring together
 39
and stop the bloods from boiling
 40
but instead our volcanoes erupts
 41
 
 
four against two
 42
the last man watches
 43
waiting for the first body drop
 44
for no reasons
 45
waiting to bridge the raging fire
 46
 
 
strategies are been drawn
 47
our weapons buried in the depths of
 48
our hearts
 49
when the red rose drops
 50
we will be sending the first message
 51
which will pierce through your flesh
 52
 
 
we have been pushed too far
 53
our silence,
 54
you have stepped upon
 55
our target, we see in you
 56
our snipper lies in the trees
 57
of our heart
 58
 
 
as for your friend,
 59
we count
 60
when your eyes blinks
 61
he falls to the ground.
 62
