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:

Erase the Past
UrbanAng3l

Looking deeper....eyes always give it away
 1
Inside, far away....trapped
 2
Walls, barriers, kicking, screaming
 3
 
 
As the coldness settles in
 4
The walls her enemy, the barrier to freedom
 5
 
 
Tears so wet, cuts so deep, bruises so bare
 6
But nothing can erase the past
 7
 
 
A sea of pain,
 8
Just play dead
 9
No one will know
 10
Just don't let the pain show
 11
 
 
As she twist, he turns
 12
She screams, he laughs,
 13
She opens, he closes
 14
She kicks, he sheilds
 15
His pleasure, her pain
 16
 
 
Harder and harder.....
 17
Deeper and deeper....
 18
Further and further....
 19
 
 
A never ending nightmare
 20
Memories won't erase
 21
Nightmares keep her awake
 22
Of his grip
 23
His touch
 24
His tear
 25
His eyes
 26
His stare
 27
 
 
Haunting her forever
 28
Her past cannot be erased
 29
But it can be kept secret
 30
