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?

Life beyond death
 1
Is sought by us all
 2
To give us a breath
 3
Before we all fall
 4
 
 
Great fears are realized
 5
And hopes are soon risen
 6
To bring us a seal
 7
To stop cataclysm
 8
 
 
Our world is dying
 9
It’s ending in flames
 10
And our people are trying
 11
To keep it the same
 12
 
 
Hell is right here
 13
Unwanted to be
 14
Its presence is clear
 15
Though few can see
 16
