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:

Death Befall!

Calling out to the midnight sun,
Memories of pain prolonged,
Sad and broken feeling dead,
Getting back on your feet again,
Tears fall aimlessy
Crashing on the floor,
Achieving goals in the last dying wish
Jaded and torn,
Time runs quick.
Stars twinkle in the sky,
Angels come to guide the way,
Indigo Child,
Auric Cleanse
Night passes, your only wish
Will it come true, before the fall
Will you see the light or none at all.
