Your Kiss

You plant a kiss on my lips
and inside my soul you grow
lush gardens of swaying trees
and exotic flowers only you would know

Metamorphosis

by markfahmy

metamorphosis

Can a cigarette warm
the coldness of a soul
that stopped giving a damn
about it all?

Can a touch restore
the blood into the veins
of a body that’s been buried
under a million chains?

that never gave up on you?

How can you put a full stop to a story..
that involves other people too?

Cocktail

by Venkat

Come, a cocktail for you
For your mixed feelings
In this hurricane of words

When the skies were wide
And you longed for a game
You loved to stir thoughts
And floated on cubes of wonder

Daily Poem — Partly Father

by paturnerlee

Partly Father
Tricked into sandpaper chewing

Teeth grate on the fire

My Senior Service dangling from chapped and dry lips

I ponder my cousins dreams

In a silk lined coffin

Poem of the Day — Sounds not Sense

by paturnerlee

Poor quality, astride a whistling pony

Saddled with another days paper trail

Terror applied to shattered amulets

On a concrete terrace

Festooned with cracked eggs, shells in crumpled shimmering detail

Since I’ve seen you around

Mountain of Regret

by Tiffany (lifewithblondie)

Someday you’ll reach the top of the mountain of regret
You’ll look around and realize the destruction that you left
Like a hurricane that swirled around raining down the massive floods
You wiped us out, left us nothing, dragging us through the mud.

Poem of the Day — Slope Peak

by paturnerlee

Slope Peak

Crest fallen, wilting, makeshift bin clattering resonance

The class breaks up for Christmas

seemingly tortured in troubled playtime kiss scenes

A cobbled street tinkles with chains; left by market share holders

Poem of the Day — Bin Meant for Scenery

by paturnerlee

Bin Meant for Scenery

Crackle toed, hint of gin

Speed bumps, clapped in jocular splendour

Climate: school devoured dinners raided on a Saturday Night

Siren ringing ears and passers by splashed in bright lights

A focus on fashionable façades

Poem of the Day — Swappist

by paturnerlee

Swappist

A bang all whisky, slashed incredulous, discovery channel promotion

In tantric emotion

Rubbed out, rolled and picked together, crushed in ambiguity

Conduit for disaster, stuffed but pleased

A chagrin, a red blue lament

Cast in out of date dried cement: joined together like mushy peas

Poem of the Day — Stuck in a Cage

by paturnerlee

Stuck in a cage
The wind blows outside, the rivets screwed into the floor rattle

Clouds jangle and merge and brush aside each other

My frozen heart clasps the gates shut

Shallow belief clasps the breast bone of pain tight against the lungs

fade with an ebbing tide
a solitary tear tricked from
the corner of my eye

There were ten little fingers and ten little toes
And before I knew it, off he goes
Across the room into his Daddy’s arms.

Poem of the Day — Spliced

by paturnerlee

Spliced
Teachers disco a bumbling twirl of ridiculous clothing

A two-tone jacket competion

I feel like a brogue fitting haircut

The one with the smell of the seaside

And grease scraped onto a razor blade

In Your Eyes

by markfahmy

IMG_20150414_002027

I lost myself in your eyes
Lost my very own existence
Lost the pieces that tied me to my past

Drowning in your ocean so deep
Waters so clear
Like a fortune-teller’s crystal ball

Poem of the Day — Relative

by paturnerlee

Relative

Generally I’m still standing; bargaining with a bent penny

Digging deep for certainty, a conviction, just conviction

No ones responsibility but mine

To press on regardless of the teasing

Poem of the Day — Black Frame

by paturnerlee

Black Frame

Chilled wind, pinned to the ceiling;

My truth pulsating

Grieving a lost loved one;

Trickle treat, I give up to a welcome

Blast the signet ring from the gun of my fire

Poem of the Day — Grapple

by paturnerlee

Grapple

Plucked eyebrow, tremble town, shaking mixer.

Crunch biscuit chews, on a day to day basis

My stomach cramps

A grass genius dreaming of pastures grown
