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:

the (teenage) heartbreak
eyeslikesky

no more i love you's
 1
whispered into the phone
 2
at a ridiculous time
 3
when i should be in bed,
 4
not dreaming of you
 5
or the way your voice
 6
kept me calm
 7
and made my heart flutter
 8
 
 
you were mine
 9
i was yours
 10
and you swore to me
 11
you'd keep me
 12
(in your heart)
 13
even after we
 14
gave up on each other
 15
but i guess you lied
 16
about a lot
 17
