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:

Everything You Wanted To Know About Heartbreak But Were Too Afraid To Ask
modern_nomad

In a corner
 1
Stands a beige nightgown
 2
With the help of a girl
 3
 
 
Wet with tears
 4
It clings to her sweating skin
 5
 
 
She tries to smear
 6
Her perfectly applied mascara
 7
To give worth to the innocent heartbreak
 8
The world would not allow her to feel
 9
 
 
Purely.
