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

Didn’t ask to be solved

Asked me to pause

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

Phantoms No More

by scatterednotebooks

You took the phantoms
from my life
locked ’em up and out of site
with gentle hands, a simple kiss

so I can get on with my life

even the words you say to me
helped cast the wraiths and
set me free

I just want to stay dead
For a minute
the world has beaten enough
my eyelids
it also has torn apart my earlobes.

Comfort in Sound

by Jem Croucher

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

The Monster’s Return

by frankhubeny

My little daughter goes to sleep.
I hope that monster doesn’t creep
Back to her bed to say, “Hello!”
She tells me that it’s wicked, though.

your drops of saline

by Singledust

When you hurt don’t cry
Your tears are pearls not
Drops of saline
Don’t waste them

For the days
When taste leaves you

A “Heavenly Healthcare Wakeup Call” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

sign from God 2

Round One of the Healthcare Fight is over. Lots of ducking and weaving, no solid blows landed. It may appear that the ACA came out of it unscathed, but remember, that was just Round One which is all about feeling out your opponent (or in Trump’s case, feeling up your opponent – sorry couldn’t resist, the metaphor just hung it out there.)

Spiralling

by Jem Croucher

And so another weekend
and another week to come
Life continues, spiralling
with work and play and fun
And time continues marching
though at times I am bemused
as it can go slow or fast or even
backwards! I’m confused.

The Harrowing of Westminster Gore*

by Harry

Submitted by Peter Connell
.
.
Earth has none more gruesome to show,
Than this sick’ning vision that begs
the soul to go From this scene of slaughter
and hate Which doth wear a mantle,
implicate Of maimed and motionless shapes, over-run;
Ending in smoking mess of tangled Tucson.

I Wonder If

by markfahmy

her

I still feel..
your lips on mine
as I held you close
and your hair did shine
under a million stars
when everything seemed to align.

I wonder if..
you think about me too
when you lie in bed at night
under a million different stars
knowing my heart still belongs to you.
