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?

Note: I saw this poem posted somewhere and was created by her/him, which I believe it was never created by that person.

Melancholy of Love
 4
By louise
 5
 
 
Trust, yieldingly impart
 6
Gestures of love an assumption
 7
Lavish acts flatter oh heart
 8
Deception of adoration
 9
Break oh heart
 10
 
 
Mockery of care easy to say
 11
Honesty so hard to convey
 12
Oh heart in pain
 13
Never learning
 14
Now broken in a spell
 15
 
 
Oh heart begging
 16
To be cared
 17
Trust given, lies echoed
 18
In return
 19
Oh heart now in despair
 20
 
 
Thorns imbedded
 21
Pain crushing the trusting heart
 22
Ignorance insanity
 23
Back to life
 24
Sorry never heard
 25
 
 
Oh heart forgets
 26
Malady of darkness now can see
 27
Move on yonder
 28
Let go thy pain
 29
Sweet before now never
