The World’s Longest Epitaph

by HemmingPlay

dreamstime_s_112061186

“It’s over, at last. Don’t you wonder what I can see now? I can’t tell you; it’s the rules. But all the stuff you worry about and fear and hate is so utterly petty I can’t be bothered with it any more. It’s just not important.

This will be quick…

You’ll get here soon enough. You’ll find out. I did the best I could there, and I don’t have anything to feel ashamed of. If you can say that, it’ll be OK.

I’m going, now. I won’t be back. (Ghosts are fake news. Why would anyone come back to this after seeing the truth.?) Try to do the best you can.

Just be kind. Just that.”

Trick

by Megha's World
“if it doesn’t come bursting out of you
in spite of everything,
don’t do it.
unless it comes unasked out of your
heart and your mind and your mouth
and your gut,
don’t do it.”
― Charles Bukowski

The sun, the day.

It has risen,
Even if,
You want it to or not.

It will advance,
Even if,
You want it to progress or not.

Blood throbs
In time with the fist
Cracking on bone,
The scene swirls
Around in my head
Rage-reaction
To the gas lighting attempt,
Barely restrained,
Green monster wants
Out.

Love-light

by Sandeep

Picture Courtesy: Internet

The sea was still.

But, now, she arrived
In all her majesty,
Carrying for him
Her glorious
Love-light.

Her shimmering shadow
Lit sea’s heart forever,
Creating ripples
All through his being.

While this was happening,
Far away, secretly,
The romance was overlooked
By the silent dark hills,
Playfully wandering clouds,
Turbid dense blue sky,
And, its night watchman, i.e.
The ever-fascinated moon,
Which was shining
In the love-light of its beloved
Sun.

Sparrows

in echoes, squeaked my reason
they robbed scraps of my heart

can I see the behind
and the years that have now passed me by
Shielding my eyes
I look to the past
and the distance in which they now lie

to find the words

sometimes I’m droll
sometimes I’m witty

Love Redefined (Part 2)

by carareevablog
He watched me from a distance
I could tell from the shivers running down my spine
Though I pretended not to notice
My body and gaze remained stable
Even as my heart rumbled faster than the ocean's waves
I longed for him to paint my thin lips
With the truth in his tongue
Reciting his desire to know my heart's contents
The air was vibrating with a lust so thick
He didn't have to whisper in my ears
My body melted just from the heat of his calm gaze
As he moved closer to me, yet not close enough
The world seemed to be completely still
Not even the bees buzzed at the scent of the flowers
I wish I could turn my head
And let my eyes dive into the depths of his soul
But I remained fixed on the endless waters
I knew not of his existence till now
Yet i found myself drawn to him somehow
I imagined that when he spoke
His voice would be as raspy as the sand beneath my feet
But would still manage to soothe my fears at the least
My mind craved to kiss his intellect
My heart ached to nurture his flaws
I had "fallen in love" so many times
But this feeling was foreign to me
It had to be love redefined
