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:

Betrayal of the storm
poetic_soul

The skies turn dark and gray
 1
The clouds move closer and closer
 2
A dark shadow forms over me
 3
The rain drops slowly to the ground
 4
Faster and faster it falls
 5
There’s no way of controlling it
 6
I stand-alone in the middle
 7
Standing in the middle of this dark dark night
 8
Can’t see a thing around me
 9
Then a giant flash of light
 10
I stand there calm and still
 11
My eyes fill with water the world becomes blurry
 12
The skies roar the beating of a deadly night
 13
Darkness falls back a-pon me
 14
A bright streak of light shine in the night
 15
A figure stands in front of me
 16
Then the night goes dark again
 17
The deadly beating continues
 18
Louder and harder
 19
The figure I once saw in the light is gone now
 20
The drops slowly stop
 21
The deadly beating is silenced
 22
The clouds break apart
 23
The light shines through
 24
The figure I saw in that dark dark night
 25
Was the figure of the one I hate the one no one loves.
 26
It was my own shadow to betray me once again.
