Fear

*Alliteration Poem – Fear*

9th Oct’17  ~by Venkat

Feathers flayed, fumble feet
Fingers faint, flush fortunes
Faces float, float fires
Frozen fumes, faded feasts

My Friend and Her Anxiety

by A. Marie

Over and over on a Ferris wheel, she will not come down,
have her meal, will not admit that she is afraid
that the contraption revolving around her heart may one day die.

She’d rather sit there, all hours, observe the heights
and the tops of towers, reach her fingertips up as she drops
to brush the illusions, feel the felt and wool of a god’s eyelash
she dreamt of the night before.

Fear

by Alanna

snake-2082037_1920The opposite of courage

The backside of love & creativity

Its tendrils approach from behind

Silently wrapping themselves around your neck

Until you are paralyzed

Suffocating in its sticky web

PAST

by Tanya

Past
Haunts me more
Than it ever did before
For it has a longer history to pour

Haunted
I stick to myself
Holding tight I wonder
More about the consequences
That could have been well mended

Love

by Nick Anthony

To think, you’re finally here with me!
After years of relentless, flirtatious banter,
Sometimes as playful as puppies, we were:
Other times more serious than a snake bite–
Always fruitless my affections were.

Unattainably distant, you seemed to me.
A hazy speck just beyond the horizon,
Across the ocean of my life.
And I, stranded on my little island,
Couldn’t possibly build a smoke signal
Tall enough to alert your look-out.

Wish A Better Future..

by Tanya

I stood by my will
To cheer my little
My darling wanted a gift
Which went off with a drift

To cheer my little
For she wanted more dolls
Those shells around
Had once fell with a sound
She wished for children to play
But they vanished falling prey

Through the crowd at the carnival
I lift him wishing he could lift me
So we could ascend under Mary’s umbrella
