Change

by Angela Umphers Rueger

The ocean’s waves come quietly ashore,
Then disappear as quickly as they came.
No matter what the sand was like before,
When water leaves, it’s never quite the same.

Coffee With A Side Of Pining

by A. Marie

Sleuth of my loins keeps himself to the doings of sudden street crossings,
most irregular comings and goings, having an epiphany
at the ferry, realizing that he must go right now, hurry off to
dream of me, write visions of me, lay in a bed of uncomfortable need
for me, address my shadow, confess his most sinful thoughts to my coat
I left hanging on his peg by his doorway, his collar constantly tightening,
his hands constantly needing unwinding, his armpits Continue reading

You

Your eyes are sometimes

All I can think of

When I lie here alone at night

In the bed we used to share

How you used to

Lie here next to me Continue reading

Lost the habit of framing and hanging
Photographs on the wall
Modern technology brings
Instant attachments
From across the seven seas Continue reading

Standing in a darkened hall

Hesitating, yet hearing your heart’s call.

At Last a kiss,

Oh what sweet release!

Will this euphoric feeling

Ever cease? Continue reading

Poem of the Day – AHTUF PATROL

by paturnerlee

AHTUF PATROL

 

Stale crusts, broken from edges of time:

Dry ripped and bitten.

 

Sitting in windows bleating

Whistling tunes to bar telling salesmen

Selling chisels for cleverly accounting wizards.

Scraping juice frozen on glass topped mountains. Continue reading

Do I Love You Enough?

-Linda Lee Lyberg

Another year has gone by and I ask

Do I love you enough?

Spinning, rushing through this life

Trying to be tough

Never falter, never blunder

Yet now I begin to wonder-

Do I Love You Enough? Continue reading

Melaka #7 – The Final Walk/Milles Crepe

by S Francis

Café mocha milles crepe, black coffee
Please.
You could use a water, waiter thinks.
Don’t care, my thought retorts.
I want bitter
Coffee,
Hot as the day
Mocha dessert
Laced with bitter espresso dust
Hidden by chocolate
Like arsenic in sweet lemon tea –
Just
What is needed
To solve the last problem.

An Empty Easter

by Harry

Submitted by Morris Friedman

.

I went to the hospital today
It was very very far away.
I had to check in at the nurses station
and sat in a room full of anticipation.
As I received the news,
I began to cry,
all they could ask is why?
They told me everything would be fine
I said goodbye and got in line.
