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:

feeling it all over
SweetPain

look beyond your heart
 1
to fill the spaces that need warmth
 2
the ones that need a little bit of spring cleaning.
 3
 
 
crawl inside your mind
 4
to find the thoughts you never wanted
 5
but did anyway.
 6
 
 
rub your eyes good morning
 7
to see the things you take for granted,
 8
the little squirrels and hints of sunshine.
