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:

i never...

I never got a chance to say
that I never wanted to go and I wanted to stay.
I never wanted to say good-bye
and I never wanted you to see me cry.
I never wanted us to be apart
but I wanted you to know that ther'll always be a place for you in my heart.
