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:

Heart of the Misanthrope
liveon_on

broken fragile peace
 1
resembles the heart of a misanthrope
 2
the picturesque silence
 3
soon reaches the edge of each glamorous dawn
 4
 
 
 
 
a gentle deep breath
 5
holds onto her self-loyalty forever
 6
at this condensed six seconds
 7
and she sensed her remarkable sanctuary
 8
 
 
 
 
nights recall the memories of sweetness
 9
while she gazing at a piece of chocolate
 10
feeling it rasing the temperature little by little in her mouth
 11
this preciously empty happiness
 12
is now everlasting with a dribble of stirring indescribableness
 13
 
 
 
 
she's down on her knees
 14
with her splintered heart
 15
the only one who's to rescue the soul is now herself
 16
she hears the sream pumping out
 17
into the endless blue of the night
 18
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Mavarice
 19
