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:

Dazed Decent
Elocin

I silently knelt on the balls of my feet
 1
Bent in bath water half an inch deep
 2
Soaked locks hung as I listened to the leak
 3
Of Seconds down the drain and time decreased
 4
Hunched like an animal beaten and scarred
 5
I thought with a shudder about who we all are
 6
While hot shower remnants ran down my skin
 7
A dazed self took the moment right in
 8
And began to write in my head
 9
A ripple of words that have
 10
and have not been said
 11
Some in rythm
 12
Others in ryhme
 13
Wondered..Will anothers mind ever read mine?
 14
Like I  in the library with thirst
 15
Trying to grasp onto some of this earth
 16
For all in nature seams solid and real
 17
I find it's life that gets harder to feel
 18
And with precious time so quickly passing
 19
My passions have but a second for grasping
 20
