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:

between these two hearts

why love fooled me
my heart was in grieved
i loved again but betrayed
with no trust yet still believed
my heart was again opened
and grab the truth
to see a new beginning
without any clue
what about the past
that if i only knew
that I want to forget
of what i thought is true
coz now i feel the new embrace
of the person i want face to face
now i dont know
where will i start
I was in between
these two hearts
what will happen to whom i must belong to
when i choose for being happy and true
