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:

friends till the end

We were best friends
One day i moved and that was the end
I will always remember her on that day
It was sometime close to may
She was my closest friend
I cried when that was the end
I wish i could have stayed
But that memory soon was fade
She probably misses me
Her voice busses in my head like a bee
We were so close
I miss her the most
someday i hope to find that special friend
Mabe i'll see her around the bend
I was so fond of her
But i knew that would never again be.
