Lost and found II

by Jem Croucher
Hidden in small corner
I found something I'd lost
saved me there the hardship
of counting up a cost
for it was something precious
I hold dear to my heart
and which when separated
felt at loss when there apart
So now it's found I'm happy
reunited once again
continuity rekindled
as together we remain

Grey Zone

by Alanna

There is a space

Between endings and beginnings

A quiet valley

Full of swirling grey mist

All sense of direction

Ballad of a Stray

by Nick Anthony

“Shoo!” they say to me all day,
As I wander, unwanted and alone,
Down lonely streets, looking for meat,
And a dry place to call my home.

Among the two-legs, I scavenge their dregs
My ribs bruised by their kicks,
While snobby Maltese snub my maladies:
Rabid and half consumed by ticks.

Some walks you have to take alone…

by cmapillay

WhatsApp Image 2017-10-25 at 2.57.23 PM (3)

“Alone in thy mind, alone in thy name
Alone is thy fame, alone is thy shame
A step towards the grave, Alone will be the soul
Some walks will bother you…But sadly…you are alone in this game”

In Time

Stones, rolled down her eyes
And the meadows, found a sky
Rain clasped wanderlust leaves
Rolled up a breeze in her moment

Fingers faint, flush fortunes
Faces float, float fires
Frozen fumes, faded feasts

The Keeper

by Anita Lubesh


I am the keeper of lost things,
those intangible imprints of wasted life,
destined to become the destroyer of goodness
and maker of sadness.

The Adventures of Purple Turtle: Part III

by scatterednotebooks


© Purple Turtle by Linda Rose

It seems that I have lost my friend.
I must find out where she’s gone.
My name is purple turtle,
and it’s no fun to be alone.

I found myself inside a box
with a lot of noise around,
and then I was lifted to a shelf
where I am sitting now.

New Territory

by Rhyme In Time

Inspired by “A Hymn to God the Father” by John Donne (a better poet!)…

Forever and a day I’ve been at sea
Discovering foreign lands inside of me,
Each island bald or capped by tuft of trees
But peak of yet another territory.

A Tiny Drop

by markfahmy
If the world is an ocean
And, I, just a drop
That moves along the collective wave motion
Secretly wishing that it would stop
Whirlwinds, tornadoes circulating through
And I, a tiny drop, in the midst of it all
Does not know what it should do
Bumping and turning till it finds its role

The lost words

by Jem Croucher

Screen Shot 2016-03-16 at 19.58.48

We are lost words searching
for a poem we once knew
Somehow we were parted
and it’s left us feeling blue
We feel bereft and lacking
it’s not nice to be alone
We should be with all the other words
in a poem that’s our home

Run hard all my life

Got no home, money, or family

No love, girlfriend, or wife.

Being lost, I fear
Thoughts rolling, off this mind
None in hand, to grip
This world speeding away, deep

you’re not a shovel, and i’m not your dirt

by suicidallyanonymous

Before the week has had
its fill in misery,
an emptiness
you continue to leave behind
buries itself in my spine.
Maybe that’s why
I can’t see the scars yet

A Station Bench

by Emily Page

Empty station. A train from the City leaving.
Not a soul is there. Just you and me.
Arm in arm and hand in hand,
We weave our way to the other platform.
