Some People

Some people
come into our lives
and we hardly know
they are there.

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 outside, of many things, is a facade

the innards, soul and belief belie this

Flesh and bone, masks and smiles

housing within a starlight light,

or void blackness

Fondue

via Pixbay

Ants clamber upon a

far flung crumb

they eat, they build,

nest and they mate

Begin again, and again

Some farm and nurture

The others, locust among

Leave nothing but
Ghost town remnants
No sound from mankind

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.

People

by A. Marie

I am believing.

People pass around.
There is some cup of blankness here.
Fingers and palms forecast everything.
Algorithms are sorting people out.
People are groaning into themselves.
People are sowing eyes shut.
People are stretching out like bubblegum refusing to break.

The Lamplight Hours

by A. Marie

This is the lamplight: men in shredded jeans.
Men with holes in them, and the cool air.

Disciples of midnight blue
Take to the streets, and give motion
To the stillness, rolling shopping carts and hot
Ravings and slamming cars doors,
Full of bluster.

The Mermaid Bar

by A. Marie

A basement of echoes; tough dogs, fat cats, unbelievers,
A cool cannonade of hot talk and whiskey secrets and
What tumbles in
Levitates out, disembodied of any past
Still hanging on by a thread.

Fraser’s House

Morning coffee ‘neath Art Deco
the world goes by outside
and I wonder what the towering glass
in Deansgate has to hide

I love them,
But wish
Most of them would
Die
99% of the time,
The rest I’m sleeping
And don’t think
About people

Hindsight

by Lakshmi

to all the books i didn’t read
their spines unbent, their worlds uncharted,
to all the maps i never opened
to trawl through dusty cities and temple ruins

The insanity

compliments

I’m handed one occasionally
Like a tiny shard of moon
Stardust nestled in tissue
Or butterflies in a jam jar
My heart aches for them but

And evolve
Who we are
And who the world
Sees,
A fight to move past
The three year old

Coffee

by thom amundsen

coffee

Let’s start with an average day

sunglasses, scarves, sweatshirts, scenery

books, and newsprint, magazines and thick look.

Well, kindles and IPADS, laptops – usually new

smartphones,

huge minis, air, and Androids

Labels

by Apurva

We love

slotting people,

putting them

in little boxes,

giving them

fancy labels,

from dumb blonde,

to obnoxious.

We feel

a sense of pride,

Party Personality

by Apurva

I’m asked how I feel,

after a party,

if I jump and shout,

or slip out

silently,

Do I love to dance,

have some fun,

Sorry

by blackandwhiteartist

SORRY HAS been an everyday word.

when we did something wrong
when we hurt someone
when we ask for forgiveness
when we didn’t mean something
we simply say sorry

If we didn’t mean it
Sorry is just a word.

It’s The Love I Know

by blackandwhiteartist

NO SHARP edges to hurt you,
Never-ending cycle we knew.

Light side –always present,
Yet dark side won’t be absent.

Can’t be composed of only one,
It’s made up of everyone.

Feelings are being shared,
People are being heard.

It’s not about ‘just us’,
It’s not a rush.

Who was here … ?

by Devina

Who was here?

That sat in the chair

I now sit on?

Have they stared at

The pleasant shade of blue too?

Who was here?

That laid on my hospital bed?

Had they lived or died, I wonder.

Were they content with

The life they’ve lead?

Who were the students

Taught in my classroom?

Were they brilliant, average

Or hopelessly slow?

What sort of people

Have the now become?
