Believe In You

by markfahmy


If you ever believe in anything so strongly,
then I hope you do believe in you.
And dismiss all the shit that was said to you, wrongly,

Weighty Words

by Nick Anthony

How can a word cut to my core?
Slicing and slashing its swooping sword,
It amputates limb and severs artery;
Once under my skin, it becomes a part of me. 

Fervently it festers unseen and unheard,
Eluding a simple diagnosis of words,
Invading my mind, body, and spirit
Until we are one, and I’ve come to fear it.

Photo of sunshine beaming through dark trees over fields

Confidence strikes

Stays in bed

Hovers in my head

Vanishes like mist

When I think of how I missed

As Always, Spring

by journeyintopoetry


I love spring,

quiet confidence;

instinct melded with a trust

that says it’s okay to go.

She was almost fooled

a couple of times this year,

but not enough to daunt

or throw off course.
