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:

Misery Loves Company
HandsomeHerb

Too passive to live
 1
And too aggressive to die,
 2
I sit here collecting dust.
 3
 
 
Nobody is happy.
 4
Some hide their sadness better than others.
 5
So why do I feel alone?
 6
 
 
Relationships exist only to distract us
 7
From the hopelessness of our own lives.
 8
I want to be distracted too.
 9
 
 
Where is my company?
 10
