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:

christmas lights
greylin

Never once did I stop and write
 1
what you made me feel
 2
As Christmas lights bounced off your face
 3
And added an extra twinkle
 4
in your oh so deep brown eyes
 5
that feeling that ran through me
 6
knowing you really did love me
 7
because before this night of innocent sin
 8
you were my best friend
 9
and you loved me through all thick and thin
 10
And that night I felt you in me
 11
I felt our souls collide
 12
and this passion i believed to be true
 13
until you said good-bye
 14
and left me out to die
 15
but even now as i cry
 16
i know you love me still
 17
and i will always remember
 18
lights bouncing off your face
 19
and adding an extra twinkle
 20
to your oh so deep brown eyes
 21
