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:

Sweat
FusionRose

You get under my skin
 1
I'm like an addict on a binge
 2
I know you're lethal
 3
But I love the way you feel.
 4
I wanna soak you up
 5
And sweat you out again.
 6
I wanna kick you out
 7
To let you back in.
 8
You always seem to know
 9
Just how far I want you to go
 10
Can't make you stop this
 11
I know you're deadly
 12
But I love it when you scream
 13
I wanna soak you up
 14
And sweat you out again
 15
I wanna kick you out
 16
To let you back in.
 17
You get twisted in
 18
Oh so tangled in my bed
 19
And I can't free us from the madness
 20
Cuz I love the medicine.
 21
I wanna soak you up
 22
And sweat you out again.
 23
I wanna kick you out
 24
To let you back in.
 25
I wanna sweat you out
 26
And soak you in again.
