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:

Broken Moon
starryskies

If you were the moon
 1
and i was the sea
 2
you could have my waves, my heart
 3
you could shine on my shores
 4
and bask on the water
 5
    The image of your beautiful worn face
 6
would reflect through the ripples of my steady stream
 7
your eyes, the light
 8
would sink through my soul
 9
to every living creature
 10
that moves through the ocean
 11
and not a sound
 12
but my love and yours
 13
would be heard
 14
for all time.
 15
