by scatterednotebooks

Awkward, accusatory and dooming,
Lie the letters, staring, glaring.
Painfully pointing fingers, from the fatal
Hand of society, chip away the self.

Hell hounds howl at cold and distant moon
And slough off their humanity like skins,
Pretending as they shed their flesh cocoons
Perhaps they’re more than just a beast within.

by Scott Andrew Bailey
So they gathered through all the seasons
No plan, no goal, no reason
Anyone would have thought they had agoraphobia
Reality, they imagined, could be held back forever
Socially seeking some satisfying Saturdays
Never needing new nighttime neon
All agreeing an admirable agenda
Rich raw results really render

Enigma ~ Acrostic VI

by KeiB

Ever am I enticed by your advance and retreat

New again, this old dance of ours so sweet

Intrigued that your heart is now to me returned

Guarding my own against that for which I’ve yearned

Me, entranced and on my knees

And you, the riddle inside a mystery

Blood: An Acrostic

Bleeding out, pools of rich liquid, red.
Lying here on the floor, I am cold, I am broken.
Only I know what happened
Over here in the dark. Please
Don’t leave me alone now…
