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?

Over
DLBanksAWM12

I’ve had break ups
 1
But I am still standing here
 2
Wishing you by my side
 3
If you could see me now
 4
You would have wished
 5
You never had left me
 6
But its to late
 7
It’s to late….
 8
 
 
 
 
So shut mouth
 9
And keep it shut
 10
You’ve hurt me bad
 11
But I can’t help it
 12
You should just leave
 13
And never think about me cause
 14
Its over
 15
 
 
 
 
Don’t think of coming back
 16
you haven’t seen me this hurt before
 17
Bottle it up inside
 18
Makes my life easier
 19
You may let yours out
 20
But I keep mine inside
 21
 
 
 
 
So shut mouth
 22
And keep it shut
 23
You’ve hurt me bad
 24
But I cant help it
 25
You should just leave
 26
And never think about me cause
 27
Its over
 28
 
 
 
 
Go ahead ask me again
 29
see what your answer will be
 30
Ill gives you 3 good tries
 31
But your too blind won’t even guess it right
 32
 
 
 
 
So shut mouth
 33
And keep it shut
 34
You’ve hurt me bad
 35
But I can’t help it
 36
You should just leave
 37
And never think about me cause
 38
Its over
 39
Its over
 40
Its over…………
 41
