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:

Im needing you
wintergirl

Im needing you
 1
Like the air that i breathe
 2
Like the sun that I see in the morning, through
 3
the darkness of my sleep
 4
it wakes me
 5
 
 
Im needing you
 6
Like blankets in the night
 7
that keep out the cold
 8
Without you, like them, id freeze
 9
Standing naked for all to see
 10
My soul exposed
 11
 
 
Im needing you
 12
Like the music to my ears
 13
The music, when it stops
 14
the silence is deafening
 15
Like your's
 16
Dont block me out
 17
Im needing you so much right now,
 18
The silence is killing me
 19
