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:

unspoken
arwilson1203

The world goes silent for a while
 1
I take a deep breath
 2
letting the cold air
 3
take me over.
 4
 
 
Around me the leaves
 5
dance in the wind:
 6
the silent music
 7
of the coming winter.
 8
 
 
You take my hand
 9
and we walk for a while
 10
stealing glances
 11
as our thoughts try to
 12
formulate words.
 13
 
 
The path beneath us is smooth
 14
It turned to dirt years ago
 15
and will soon be covered
 16
completely
 17
when the leaves settle.
 18
 
 
Its getting late now
 19
We missed the sunset
 20
And its getting
 21
too cold
 22
to feel your hand.
 23
