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:

For Sam
unknown

my mind dips into fluid memories
 1
lustful moments, of what I thought was love
 2
tangled warmth, whispered words
 3
rhythmic instances of freedom
 4
this is different
 5
 
 
lost in your beauty, not just your flesh
 6
you give yourself so freely
 7
legs open,to my soft murmurs
 8
left wanting more, needing to fill you
 9
I wander slowly down your body
 10
holding the thought, this is love
 11
