Love! Without You by Dr. Ashok Chakravarthy Tholana

Thoughts keep interveningIllusions keep interweaving;Betwixt the fleeting pleasuresAnd the volcanic fire of despair,Intoxicating memoirs keep ringingIntolerable pain keeps piercing;With love, dejection and aversionThe citadel of passion looks broken.Limitations and apprehensionIncapacitate my wavering vision;Love! Without you, yes, my dearEverything looks a vast vacuumI can neither reveal nor concealAs memoirs engulf at every dusk fall. Copyright Dr. […]

Flowered Sheet for A Picnic Tablecloth by Debra Ann Harris

This was my Grandmother’s summer:Brown sugar lemonade.Uncles on the porch playing spadesCelebrating debts that’s paid. This was my Grandmother’s summer:Kids playing with no shoes on feet.Barbecued meat and fried fish to eat.Ice-cold water to keep down the heat. This was my Grandmother’s summer:Laughing so hard it made you cough.Popsicles from the freezer covered in frostFlowered […]

Muffin by Christian Ward

“Slow down”, Mother saysas I struggle to wolf downthe chocolate muffin collapsingin my hands. It is an asteroidand they are the atmosphere.Slowing down, I see the elements,how things originally were.Glimpsing at my mother in this space,I watch her unravel back to its startingpoint — become feint, almost unreal.A sleight of hand.

I Weave A Dream Catcher by Harpreet Kaur Baweja

It’s a place full of thornsAnd my heart bleeds everydayI put all my heart & soulInto the garden of my makingTo let the lovely flowers bloomIn the morning and evening. Alas!

I Am The Raging Ocean By Caleb Burphy

Abstruse waves of the Ocean accost and thrust fiercely;Its amorphousness swings the wind, thus, it banes for the merchant.A debacle cavorts the sailing ships, it clamours to sink them balefully:The cobbler cleaves the ships apart, and listens not to the taut with expedience.It expunges vividly, extols and charades the boast of his name fatuously; The […]

Silver Spooned by Emma Wells

I face downwardscocooning peers —I’m tender like that:kind, caring, sharing.I feel for curved inferiors —they’re never picked,whereas, I shonelike steely determination;my veneers glintedin the sun. I’ve been a counsellor,stress ball,mirror,makeshift cigarette,a toothpick,musical instrument,a mid-field cricketer —I’m often in role,donning Thespian threads:a versatile performerthat’s treaded the boards,regaled at countless applauds. And yet… … I’m strugglingface cast […]

I am Liberia by Charles De Inspirator

I am Liberia!Though scared by scourges of allien spades,My resilience bears the fountain of heaven’s grace,Piercing the pangs of all my shades! My independence, I breathed into Africa’s lungs,Clothed her with my stripes, the red, white and blue;And gave her a star when she knew not one! My waters rhythm waves of freedom,Hailing treasured mountains […]

A moment I won’t forget by Ivan S. Fiske Iv

Broken thoughts, flashbacks and memoriesAre the sad music my mind have put on repeatAnd these scars engraved onto my heart cause me to weepThat short horrific moment has taken a seat within my brain.

As if the world was closing on me,I could the pain,The intense of the dark making me sick,As i fought hard looking at what was ahead. I was alone,Shivering as the rain beats me hard,All i could do was just to lie on the road,Hoping i would see a light,That would change my path. Times […]

Woe Unto The Earth by Olaoba Tomiwa

The sounds of chariots of fireHastily rushed into the sounds of thunders.Two lights collided, andSpelled a pathway for a crystal water. Melodies of sorrowful songsPlayed in the miserable atmosphere.Contradiction and confusion,Were the new contesting governors for the dear earth. The rage of rain and volcano,And the rage of earthquakeMade a beautiful sunny dayTurned black and […]

Listen by Rosie Caristea

To the silence; words unspoken,To the tears; fast cascading,To the eyes intent looking,To the heartbeat; throbbing; aching. Hear the cry of frustration,lips quivering in pain,Hear the tremor of voices,hands that are trembling,And oh! hear the gnashing of teeth,the agony of trying,the controlled power,the dagger stare! There is the sound of anger,the sound of loathe and […]

Sleepless nights!All are insecure.Their conscience stained with guilt,the masses need […]
