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:

Us together

Us together
Days are good days are bad
You put me in a mood that makes me mad
You're sweet and kind
Which sweeps the mind
Reality is lost,
It's at a cost
If you'll be mine
We'll have a great time
Let's be together
Forever and ever
