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:

damned to pain
GS69sPimp

i wish to desecrate you
 1
and all that you stand for
 2
id make myself happy
 3
if i could shut this door
 4
and lock you forever away
 5
erase you from my mind
 6
push you back down those stairs
 7
you took to ruin mine
 8
you stepped on my corpse
 9
and stood on my heart
 10
you cut me wide open
 11
and split me apart
 12
with a smile so beautiful
 13
you pushed in the blade
 14
a cheer rose from your lips
 15
to keep me in pain
 16
yet i am cursed by love
 17
and am damned all alone
 18
but as long as your gone
 19
damnation is somewhat bearable
