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:

love is........

My eyes are bleeding  
My heart is broken
My mind is in blank
My mouth try to talk but I can make a sound
But my feelings are easy to see
I cannot hide it any more  
But now that you know it’s a relieve  
And at the same time kills me
But now I can take you out of my mind
Because I feel that you didn’t expect this
And I don’t blame you because
I blame my heart
But thanks to you
I remember
What love means  
And now I felted for a second
Thank you
For your kindness
And your friend ship
