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:

Reborn (Revised)
Tortured

Why did you have to be the hateful person you are?
 1
Why did you have to hurt me the way you did?
 2
How could you do something like that?
 3
I'm going to do everything myself
 4
And I don't need your help
 5
If you want something done right
 6
You better do it yourself
 7
I use to be alive
 8
And now I regret it
 9
Some things turn into dumb things  
 10
And that's when I put my foot down
 11
I'm never coming back
 12
Depending on you is lost  
 13
Giving to you is gone
 14
No more reasoning, sleeping, living  
 15
Think I'm forgiving you?  
 16
Hiding from you is through,  
 17
And lying to you is done.
 18
Why did you have to be the hateful person you are?  
 19
Why did you have to hurt me like you did?
 20
How could you do something like that?
 21
I hope you know that I'm never coming back.
