Eyes and ears, m’dear

by Devina

Hear the things,

they speak with their eyes

Words are a lair’s arsenal,

look just how lightly they step

around promises, and juggle emotions

Look within you for your truths,

see what injustice strikes you like a fist,

understand what you stand for.

the innards, soul and belief belie this

Flesh and bone, masks and smiles

housing within a starlight light,

or void blackness

right in front of me, you know!

I could be wrong
yet never become so

A Better Man

by russtowne

When I’ve felt lonely
I’ve often found
It’s not the quantity
Of those around.
It’s the quality
I understand
That helped me be
A better man.

Islands We Live In

by Venkat

Little did I realize

The islands we live in

Blinded by emotive lies

A rush of passion within

Desires of past, out of place

Jumping the proverbial gun

A virile ego with a trace

Assuming I was fun

by Venkat

In this life, impermanent

An adage forever

A message to augment

A heart held barer

As we look for change

Untangle from confusion

From old habits, estrange

Wear a new vision
