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?
Development updates from Twitter:
|Fragments of a Screech|
Don’t you just hate feeling depressed?
The way you just sit in the middle of your room,
Just listening to the
Of your own swollen heart?
The way you look at the ceiling
While trying to hold back the tears,
But no matter how hard you try,
G down the
Of your face in silver
D r o p s?
The way you can hear the arguments
Outside you room but,
The way the sounds you mind makes to scare you
Get to you,
Then you just
CANT HANDLE ANYMORE?
The way everyone is putting you down,
And talking about you
When they think your not
Listening, then more silver tears come
Down your cheeks?
The way your eardrums finally feel like wardrums,
And their beats go
In your mind,
And you can’t hear yourself
Or is that just the way I feel?
