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:

Falling from consciousness
Sleepwalker

I’ve given you my all
 1
Everything I had
 2
Preoccupied, though I fall
 3
You made me this bad
 4
Calling me the one
 5
That threw you away
 6
What have I done?
 7
Was it today?
 8
I cared for you
 9
Now I’m shedding tears
 10
I was there for you
 11
I thought it would be years
 12
You’re being so hideous
 13
It isn’t my fault
 14
Falling from consciousness
 15
Laying out cold
 16
It doesn’t help to feel this way
 17
So what must I do?
 18
Adopting two words as from today…
 19
Screaming FUCK YOU!
 20
