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?

Pushing not pushing
TPTNW

I'll still sit here waiting
 1
I've been here for two years.
 2
And you whisper in my ear so
 3
Loud but I can't hear your
 4
Words fall on mirrors and shatter
 5
the glass...
 6
 
 
So I hear you in my heart
 7
And see you in my eyes.
 8
Your image is reflected by
 9
The clothes that you wear so
 10
Tattered and torn, brushed
 11
by a third degree burn,
 12
I wonder if you still hear
 13
my voice...
 14
 
 
  ::Just know that I hear you
 15
       I'm close and near you
 16
   But know that I fear you
 17
  I don't wanna steer you::
 18
 
 
Cuz you've kept me waiting before
 19
And you've been known to pack me with you
 20
for the road; my heart and left me
 21
here alone.
 22
