To have a conversation as fine

she is shattered in pieces….

Fragile like glass of wine…

a mere hit shatters her

she’s got scars everywhere on her soul

going through breaking and remaking all the time

who will see her un-shed tears

Calm is the best way

by Harry

Submitted by Nacklo

.
Calm is the best way to describe the night.

Silence hangs in the air strangely unperturbed by the only man that’s awake at 3 A.M in the morning.

The same man that is currently climbing past the suicide barriers at Clifton.

More silence, then the ugly crash of skin meeting water at 90 miles per hour, organs rip from the chest, an unconscious mans lungs fill with water.

The smug silence returns.

An Appreciating Asset

by russtowne

Our love is an appreciating asset.

The more we appreciate it,

The greater our love becomes.

Decisions

by scatterednotebooks

I missed my opportunity
when I put it off.
I thought I had plenty of time.
I went about my business,
though it never left my mind.
Now he’s gone and I’m left to cry.

As is bound to happen
when a tender moments gone, Continue reading

Local Politics

You’ve never really had a proper paid job.
Not for you, the nine to five slog.

Some would say your achievements are zero,

But in your own mind you’re a conquering hero.

COLD

To change what I am
My patience is poorly
I’m shut like a clam
Nothing has altered
I’m still cold as ice
Emotions abandoned
I’m not very nice. Continue reading

Fern in Spring

Beneath the gentle dew of spring, I wait…
Resolved to yearning, lengthening my patience in this state…
Droplets hold their morning spark, all my world reflected here,
as sunbursts gain corona gold, horizon’s azimuth waxing near… Continue reading

A Balloon Let Go

by S Francis

The balloon our sorrows filled
like helium floating upward
we held earthbound too long.
I looked at you and with eyes
swimming into one another’s
heart. The wordless answer
spoke by opening its hand
giving the sorrows flight
until they burst like the sun

The song of Spring

by Jem Croucher

I’m sitting in the sunshine
in my garden, it’s still March
But the song of Spring is here
with the blackbird and the larch
And it’s warm outside the breeze
in the shelter of this place
And you can see how much I love it
by the smile upon my face Continue reading

Comfort in Sound

I’m plagiarising something
today, but never mind
‘Cos there’s every best intention
and it’s not meant to be unkind
For I have (as to be honest)
done a thing I often do
Been listening to music
and the sounds I loved and knew Continue reading
