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:

Find the Person that died

look here,
you see what you see,
but you dont look deep.
you dont see whats inside,
the life draining from my eyes.
I've given it my all
and I just cant stand to give it more.
life isnt worth living anymore.
I cant have you I cant have anyone.
you meant the world and now youre gone.
I think I'll follow into the beyond and
try to find the life and love that used
to be in my eyes, in my world.
maybe I'll find you in some ghostly form
the way you used to be.
maybe I'll find the person that died instead
of the person left behind.
