The Time Tonight!

by Tanya

I untied my hair
Swiftly carressed with my fingers
Fell on the bed
Magnetised by the pillow!

Looked up to see
And out of the big window
Ah! What a sight!
I stared and glared!

The backside of the night

by Jem Croucher

At the backside of the night
I gave in, got up and then
tippy-toeing down the stairs
grabbed my book and pen

A Bed-ly Thought

by Tanya

The air is calm,
As I can’t feel it on my palm..
The lights are dim,
So, I start to hymn..

I close my eyes-
My wings of butterflies,
A sheet covers me,
So I rest my knee..

Tall

by A. Marie

It is eleven, and we are the early night.
Daddy hasn’t forgiven our existence yet,
Daddy hasn’t gotten out of the car,
Daddy doesn’t remember how to change a tire,
Daddy doesn’t love us at all;
Mommy won’t come outside into the daylight,
Mommy won’t wander the halls until we sleep,
Mommy doesn’t remember how to drink wine
Without spending the next 24 hours dreaming.

by briannadawn

sometimes my dreams arrest me
holding me by the wrists deep in the
belly of the Morning, i use her ribs as
rungs to climb out – i hear the wind sleeping

At Night

by kim blades, writer

Night begins with the sun’s descent

and the moon’s ascent

with the evening star close by

shining like a firefly.

Hush my Darling,

In the Stillness with You,
My One,
My Only,

True.

Asthma

by Jem Croucher

fullsizeoutput_168a

The pressure of the tightness
like a vice around my chest
This cruel incumbent halting
any chance to get some rest
Insomnia resulted
as breath comes short and fast
the hours passing slowly
’til the morning comes at last

Jewel Box in Thornton Square

by A. Marie

Jangles of glassware, in the hearth is a pod
of pale periwinkle, mauve, diamonds of cigarette ends
flare like sparks in the dimness.

And from here, outside, I see a man and woman laughing.
Clinking their smartphones like beer mugs,
crossing their hearts and hoping
not to die old.

Nightbeach

by Jem Croucher

20161025_195025

Cast in yellow pools of light
night shadows on the beach
Wooden breakwaters stand tall
robust against the Reach
Mysterious, the water calls
quietly from the shore
as lapping waves just out of sight
return again once more

Midnight petrichor
The earth calls me to her
and night-time takes me there
Sometimes my best words
come in the small hours
when I should be deep in slumber

The last hot summer night

by Jem Croucher

20160915_201026

Walking through St James’ Park
on the last hot summer night
I spied Buck House between the trees
it was a lovely sight
All lit up and shining
casting its reflection there
It was such a lovely thing to see
that I just had to share

Bedroom Hymn

You rise like new fire sprung, unleashed upon the twilight.
A rolling pin spinning her torso round, you tug the covers,
make the lotus bloom from scratch.

A Hard Wednesday

by A. Marie

I twist under the streetlight, tell the tales of dead bodies rising.
I kill under the streetlight, speak the tales that crush us.

Dying for endings, daring devils, trading
our cigarettes, our coats, our sex for a bite of real love.

Let This Poem Remember Me

by A. Marie

Let this room remember me. Let it fill with my scent.

The scent of valerian root, chardonnay, the air of musk and smoke,
damp moss upon the old tombstone, the wet sapling pine.

The late evening sun is the day’s last attempt to sway me.
She spills her warmest rays over the peacock rug, subjugates herself and genuflects
over the altars, over my desk and kitchen countertop.
