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?

My Other Side
xXx_kiss_xXx

Why do I do it?
 1
In the end is there going to be a reward?
 2
I can never understand what motivates me
 3
Is it the thundering beat of my heart?
 4
The exhilarating feeling of warmth rushing through my veins?
 5
Or could it even be the soothing feeling of my pain slowly streak my skin?
 6
I may fool everybody with laughter and smiles
 7
But they never see the inside of me crying out, they would never understand
 8
I have everything I need
 9
But I go through obstacles daily just to hear the thundering beat of my heart
 10
The exhilarating feeling of warmth rushing through my veins
 11
And the soothing feeling of my pain slowly streak my skin
 12
