The darkness surrounds me
the silence is deafening

LEFT IN THE WOODS

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

If you get left in the woods
don’t worry, be calm
someone else will come along
don’t chase after
the one who left you 

First Responders say, “Stay Put”
and they are the experts
when it comes to
the left and abandoned

Despair.

by Tanya

Sitting like a rock,
Not symbolic of thy power
But a being
In despair..

Lows and highs
Of life, for all:
A factoid
But not for me anymore..

amidst the drops of rain.
I know the sun shines brightly
above the clouds of gray.

So let it burn and break through,

PRETENDING DOESN’T WORK ANYMORE

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

I have a hunger
I have needs
we are different
and it’s sad

I am happy if
what I am to you
is enough
to satisfy you

but sharing
time and space
and just caring for
each other
does not fill me up

Into the sun

by Jem Croucher

I’m heading east to Essex
It’s very wet out there
There are raindrops on the window
But I don’t at present care
For I am warm and dry
On a quiet commuter train
On my way to Southend Central
Quite protected from the rain

—-MEMORIES OF THE PAST—-

By Charles Robert Lindholm

who lives life unadmired

Coursing through my mind.

May I?

by markfahmy

mayI

If you’re going through hell,
May I be your drops of rain?
If in your sadness you dwell,
May I ease some of your pain?

If the world has gone black in your melancholic eyes,
May I be a your candles giving out light?
If you’re sinking deeply in your cries,
May I, for once, become your white knight?

Often we stop what we are doing to reflect
Thoughts seem to roam like a grazing cow
Looking back at some detail or event passed
We might ask our self who, what, why or how.

Sing little bird,
fly overhead,
rest in the trees’
wavering breeze.
Lift the curtain high at dawn
let the flickering candles yawn.
