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?

Lost & Found
BrokenPen

I once knew this girl
 1
who brightened my day
 2
without even knowing it
 3
 
 
I remember her beautiful smile
 4
her pretty blue eyes
 5
 
 
She was perfect
 6
yeah she was
 7
in everyway
 8
 
 
It was hard holding back,
 9
holding back on all the things
 10
I wanted to say,
 11
like how special she was
 12
 
 
I wanted her
 13
wanted to kiss her
 14
and share memories with her
 15
 
 
How close it came for me
 16
to not have her,
 17
not have someone so amazing
 18
 
 
I found her though
 19
and she found me too
 20
 
 
All the things I remember about her
 21
are still true,
 22
but only this time
 23
she is mine.
 24
