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:

What You Are To Me
moosen

At a restaurant your the five course meal
 1
In a card game your the perfect deal
 2
 
 
You are the sun on a cloudy day
 3
The perfect word I want to say
 4
 
 
You are the last act at the grandest show
 5
The greatest secret I wanted to know
 6
 
 
The highest score on the hardest test
 7
A gold medal placed on a chest
 8
 
 
The coolest prize in the crackerjack box
 9
You are the key to all unlocable locks
 10
 
 
The tallest building, the fastest car
 11
A perfect sunset, the shineist star
 12
 
 
To me you are an april shower
 13
To me you are the prettiest flower
 14
 
 
You are the directions when I am lost
 15
You are an antique without a cost
 16
 
 
You are a gift without a cause
 17
The sweetest song without a pause
 18
 
 
To sum it up what you are to me
 19
Is the most beautiful thing I'll ever see
 20
