The Very Air …

by beeseeker

Last night, after dancing, laughter,

Connections became passion -

Not yet to be mistaken for commitment -

Between strawberry-blush skies

And a succession of

Blueberry and ash ridges.

Dark Night

as this day begins to end
a mountain of shadow
this world unwinds
from the eyes
rolling down
slipping off
into a sea
of night

Smile – a Diamante

by graypoet

Smile
warm, bright
comforting, inviting, intriguing
needed, anticipated, dreaded, avoided
confusing, depressing, aching
sad, empty

Look Ahead – a Rispetto

by graypoet

Quiet moments deep in thought
Little emotion for others to see
Past experience is all for nought
What the future holds is yet to be.

They grow
Among the world’s hair
More colorful
Than my drab
Gray
Splashes of red, gold

The memory
Within my fingertips,
Swaying tips
Or swell of globes,
Holding on tight

Another Autumn day

by Jem Croucher

IMGP1265

A clear Autumn day, not a cloud in the sky
A mist that lies lurking like a child’s forlorn cry
A walk in the morning when no-one’s about
When a whisper is special. ‘cos you daren’t risk a shout Continue reading

The Cabin

cabin

Smoke lifting gently from the chimney
Curtains visible through the windows
Dusted, arranged and silently waiting
Memories abound, yet no one shows.

Rainbows Other Side

by Heather's Starting End

tovelo_outthere

I crave to know you your mystery
Let me in and show me why,
You hide behind a smiling face
Behind your eyes, tears cry

I wish to know why you won’t,
Open up, let demons out
Stop protecting them and hiding them,
As they toss your life about

Heat!

by eloisedesousa

Pushing. Panting. Moving.
Hand in mine, eyes wide open
Writhing as the pain encases pleasure

Forward. Backward. Up. Down.
Struggling to hold on
Heartbeats melting under the heat

Craving

by eloisedesousa

Burning for you
My mouth is dry
Wanting you more than sanity
To quench my thirst.

I want to reach for you
The temptation to pull apart
The delicate fragments of life itself
Just to have you.

Swimming with the moon
The stars
The placid lake
Rippled with light
Rippled with life
And I sat
On the moons lap
While holding a star

demersi sunt in vobis – drowning in you

Dark velvet wings envelop my consciousness
Only stars in my eyes illuminate
The night time of my existence
Everything else falls back in sharp repose
Spotlight focused on you.

When you Cry

by Harry Mullan

Submitted by Tom Voke

When you cry
the chemistry of your eyes
says your tears are mine,
makes them flow inside me,
pours your pain into to my heart,
tells there is no seeing
that would make this not a truth.

William is my name

by Harry Mullan

Submitted by Bill G

 

William is my name

They called me Billy as a kid

But William is my name

I sat next to a homeless man at the station

His smell was bad and yet slightly familiar

He turned towards me and his lips did open
