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:

Confessing in Tongues
onlyXyours

A grey spiraling mist creeps towards me
 1
Seeping into my skin to infest my mind
 2
While your golden eyes shine brightly with
 3
Thoughts of faith in one another, love
 4
The fog clouds my emotions as I disbielivingly
 5
Hear myself utter words meant to reassure
 6
But tumble out of my lips as
 7
Poorly masked cruelities
 8
 
 
I hear your deep voice, weighed down by emotion
 9
"Do you trust me?"
 10
 
 
The mist evaporates and I recall
 11
Your fingertips on the small of my back
 12
Your lips on my ear, whispering the sweet nothings
 13
That became something.
 14
I listen to melodies with words I cannot understand,
 15
Latin, Spanish, they all blend to create
 16
What I feel for you; the only way to describe it
 17
In the rhymes of langauges of lovers
 18
My feeble minded English could never accurately
 19
Chornicle the rolling waves of change
 20
You brought upon my heart, rekindling the life inside that had been dead for so long
 21
 
 
My mind's eye shows me falling to my knees
 22
Praying for guidance, confessing in tongues
 23
Knowing I blindly doubted the one thing in my life
 24
That will never change
 25
I speak with words I understand but have never known, my confession
 26
 
 
Confieso yo le dudé
 27
 
 
Confieso fui sorprendido por lo que encontré en tú
 28
 
 
Confieso rendiré a su amor para toda mi vida
 29
 
 
Confieso yo no le dudaré otra vez
 30
 
 
Confieso usted es el aire que respiro
 31
