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:

If I only..
Jackith

silky black satin hair
 1
milky white skin
 2
overcast eyes
 3
a piercing but innocent stare
 4
passes me by while I'm frozen with lust
 5
 
 
the look of death
 6
directed at my obvious impudence
 7
an amused smirk as her head turns
 8
 
 
but I could not help myself
 9
to gaze so long
 10
at this dark goddess
 11
who stopped my world for a second
 12
 
 
I could have followed
 13
I should have spoke
 14
But I was frozen
 15
and one second later
 16
she was gone
 17
