Amidst the chaos of life
These calm days
and stormy nights
are your gifts with all my might..

I don’t feel your pain
I don’t understand your state
I don’t know your situations
That’s all in your mind..

Red Cloud

by Charmed Chaos

Red Cloud

-Linda Lee Lyberg

The red cloud of anger hovers
And all you see is me
I cower beneath your stare
And beg to be let free.

If you don’t wish to know, why do you
slip, slide under closed doors, take to

shadows, slither, hook-line-sinker-er into
the coat-rack with eyes wide, ears hungry;

Like a geyser
It slams into my chest,
A red wave
Trying to crack my ribs
And burst free,
I wrestle,

Hot slap slips loose the animal,
night jasmine burns in Asia, the Isle of Man
sinks into the Irish Sea, Solomon Islands
grow legs and head north
to eat Okinawa, chop every cherry bloom
into kindling
to feed the storm.

Bubbling pot
Left too long to simmer,
I feel the crooked fingers
Trying to worm their way
Twisting me towards
Anger and rage,
Clamping down,
Withdrawn and icy
I wait for it to pass
Hoping noone gets hurt
In the meantime.

Five Equals One

by MC Clark


I am mute . . .
too much screaming deafens love.
I am blind . . .
angry eyes bring down darkness.
I can’t taste . . .
foul bitterness coats my tongue.

Sometimes the sea

by Jem Croucher


Sometimes it whispers
and sometimes it growls
Sometimes it rumbles
and sometimes it howls
Sometimes it’s calm
and as quiet as a lamb
And sometimes it’s angry,
throws its toys from the pram

Pure, for Love

by Venkat


This anger
Seems but a lava, of tears
Erupted, in your shrunk heart
To find a vent out

This fear
Seems but an ice, of tears
Frozen, in your paralysed heart
To find a warm corner

Since they won’t listen
To the polite requests
To clean up their shit.
Detached and watching
The horror movie unfold,

A Bruised Petal

by Swann Lavender

Would you be angry with a tender petal
that bruised under the pressure of your grasp?
Yet at my expression of hurt, frustration,
you turn your dagger eyes towards me,
aim your piercing words,
shattering the shelter of trust
you’ve been rebuilding
in more thoughtful hours.

a bubble of tender death

ABC poem: Ex-lovers

by Bastet

ABC Poem

Ex Lovers

Because she was not a seductive lass,
Catty, yet with all the qualities of a
Dog, I can’t see what she saw in her,
Ergo, I sit here a wondering…
First of course she did him wrong!
Glory be, isn’t it always like that?

In this competition of anger
We go almost out of sight
Your smiles that destroy
Only your ego is left
You lose us in your torments

When you came back
You weren’t the same as before
Your lies spoiled the person you could be

Medical Clinic Visit– Fibonacci (x4)

by Caddo


People wait—
Anxious, and hoping
Someone will genuinely care;
Not just shove forms to sign, deliver dire prognosis.


To health “care”?
Ice rink: where patients wobble-skate,
Encouraged to buy health, or die quickly (profit/loss).

not for real, but what else do you call it?

by suicidallyanonymous

He gave love a name
and tucked skeletons
under the stairs to rust.

Using too-big words
in order to taste asphalt
was almost as cancerous
as saccharine rhetoric.

God and His Ways

by Apurva

We are not born into this world,

knowing what we are supposed to do.

More often than not, we are

groping in the dark,

without a hint or clue.

The more answers we seek,

the more questions He throws at us.

The closer we seem to reach,

(our goal),

the farther He yanks it away from us.
