They sit in the sunshine

Three old men whose sun

Is well on its way to setting

Three old men whose great sin

Is now found not in philand’ring

But merely in shriveled doubting  Continue reading

An Answer For Everything – relationship courage

by Joel Kravitz

Having been married three times, there have been a few lessons that I have learned, some the hard way.

caressing a world unknown
deep in solitary darkness
capturing dim images
with a light narrow
shone upon
the dark

The sheets cuddling us
With the heat
And sweat,
Saying I love you

by suicidallyanonymous

I thought my throat was marbles,
and velcro was the lining
holding my organs in place.
Because I am cotton socks;
black and brittle heels
scraped bloody

Up my constricted throat
When I saw you fall off that cliff,

As jagged as the rocky face terrain
Forget what I said
Forgive and forget, let’s, Continue reading

to never
for forever in the back of ones mind
for the doing of fate
and the FAITH that’s inside
for the missing of missing
for forever goodbye

She lends me an ear

So I’ll give her a hand

If she’ll offer me her lap

When I throw out a knee

She gives me her eye teeth

Tho she longs for my sole  Continue reading

Should Forever Alter my most Settled Existence, Continue reading

Dusk at the passing of a very hot day

The beach huts glowing now

Forest Tale.

by Aakansha


Foothills, rivers, mountains and streams,

I sit here cocooned under this leaf,

Drops of morning dew, fresh and sweet,

Loud crickets humming their constant creek.
