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?

Dream
hardenedpain

Sitting in a corner
 1
Dreaming of a foriegn place
 2
Wanting to go home
 3
lost and afraid
 4
 
 
Where can home be
 5
if you've lived in one place
 6
and never known
 7
confused and disoriented
 8
 
 
What is knowing
 9
if you mind is standing in place
 10
like tins soldier on a march not begun
 11
Faded and worn
 12
 
 
Is beginning without an end
 13
Sitting in a corner
 14
Dreaming of a foriegn place
 15
Wanting to go home
