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:

When You Think About me
justagirlx3

Have you ever had one of those
 1
 
 
            moments
 2
 
 
A rare occurrence of anger
 3
 
 
                  when
 4
 
 
You feel like your veins are smoking pipes
 5
 
 
                       You
 6
 
 
know your emotions could physically
 7
burn some one, but you
 8
 
 
                            think
 9
 
 
"Maybe I'll burn this page instead"
 10
You sit down awkwardly to write
 11
 
 
                                 about
 12
 
 
Us, but the ink is dry and the pen is
 13
bent and nothing. comes. out.
 14
 
 
The page is crumpled, burnt, and bare
 15
Just like
 16
 
 
                                                   me.
