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:

Forever And A Day..

Forever And A Day..
Im ready to feel your breath on my neck
your lips on my cheek
your hands on my waist
Im ready to wake up next to you everyday
hand in hand
face to face
Im ready to cook your dinners
and nag you for watching sports
Im ready to do your laundry
And ready for so much more
Im ready to watch you study
And bring you drinks and snacks
Im ready to cuddle on the couch
and rub the stress from your back
Im ready to have vacations
to plan our wedding day
Im ready to buy our first home
Im ready for you to be okay.
Im ready to have our babies
to paint the nursery
Im ready for you to kiss my belly
and fight over the name to be
Im ready to hold your hand
And watch all your dreams come true
But its not in my hands now
This can be our future- this is all up to you.
Im ready to watch our life
As it perfectly falls in place
Im ready to be with you forever
forever, and a day.
