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:

Finally hit me
Unheard

Our song came on today
 1
And i think it finally hit me
 2
just how much i miss you
 3
I guess it finally hit me
 4
 
 
Him and I
 5
we danced to our song today
 6
and i knew he saw the pain in my eyes
 7
I hope he doesnt think I'll do the same to him
 8
It scared me when he was about to say
 9
the three words  that i wish you'd said
 10
 
 
Its just not the same with him
 11
and i miss you
 12
even though you threw my heart
 13
into a pit of needles
 14
you sent me searching, for the hay in the needle stack
 15
and i left,left you alone,at least i'd thought
 16
 
 
The cold breeze swept across my face
 17
as i remembered
 18
with him twirling me around
 19
he smiles at me but i can't help but look down
 20
he's everything I've ever wanted
 21
except he's not you
 22
 
 
I wish we never met
 23
and never had those happy days we spent
 24
swirling and twirling , spinning rapidly
 25
now my head pounds with memories of you
 26
 
 
the last note sounded like it was going on forever
 27
as i remembered the kiss that blew me away
 28
even though the song was over
 29
i still wished that you'd said
 30
those three words i longed for you to say
 31
 
 
Looks like it finally hit me
 32
