road maps

by Harry

Submitted by meg eliza
.

I used to think the stars aligned us
that each day was a pattern traced over for billions of years
perfectly orchestrated in a elaborate dance
everything was purposeful
and that there was never
or ever would be a coincidence
but then I met you
by chance

My worst kept secret.

Darkness told me of the Light

how it shrank from Its density

told me of Light’s path, Its ways

how nothing could kill It

She roared quietly

She roared quietly in the corner
As no one made her laugh anymore
Her bright light dimmed
She wondered how that happened
And watched life from afar
With a broken soul weighing her down

Attention

Dear Readers and Fellow Writers…

‘The World is My Canvas’

by Harry

Submitted by Priyanjali Gupta

.

I open my eyes
With a purpose in my mind,
Life on it’s curvy path
It’s actually quite one-of-a- kind.
The lofty mountains,
The oceans so wide.
Browns and blues,
A palette so myriad.

“The last time I felt alive – I was looking into your eyes.
Breathing your air…. touching your skin…
… Saying goodbye….
The last time I felt alive…. I was dying.”

Our Goodbye

by Harry

Submitted by JPhantom

.

I’m sitting across from a person who knows everything about me, but they feel like such a stranger
And we’re just looking into each other’s eyes, for they tell our story more than words could muster
A story that has succumb to the winds of a cold world, as frost it bites and gnaws at our weary souls

static
I love you
he said softly
I could hear
only the static
behind his words
the crinkling of
a food wrapper
the running water
the shuffling feet
whatever I heard
was only just
static

Typhoon 7

by Nick Anthony

Why don’t you come back?
The day is not yet dawning,
The sun has yet to start shining,
And as far as I’m concerned,
There’s no evidence it ever will.
So why not come back to bed?

Why don’t you come back?
Dark grey clouds still cover the sky
Which has been sobbing since yesterday,
And shows no sign of stopping soon.
Mother Nature is under the weather,
So why not call in sick today?

I never felt comfortable in my own skin

by Harry

Submitted by meg eliza

.
I never felt comfortable in my own skin. But more that I never felt like my skin belonged to me. I always looked at myself as a vessel. A place that gets me from point A to B like I occupy it more than own it, I’m just renting here. It blows my mind that people don’t feel that way. I remember when I got my first tattoo and it was the first time in my entire life I felt that I owned my body.

I awake to waves

by Harry

Submitted by thaharbor

.

I awake to waves colliding into bleached sands as they sizzle across the seemingly-endless coastline

Waves that are a deep blue, yet also transparent; waters that appear to be pure, but are found to be brine

Its spray weaves within the wind, a mist that grazes over the beach and onto the tops of my exposed feet

Laugh and the World laughs with you

by Harry

Submitted by  Tom Stodulka

.

Keep that grin on your chin and you’ll be right mate.
Said to me the other day by an old timer who, passing by, has seen a thing or two in a long life.
Keep smiling – I think my Dad said that on many an occasion.
Laugh and the world laughs with you.

Putty

“Even the most
beautiful

― Veronika Jensen

My heart is 

broken,

smashed,

squelched

countless

times

broken,

shattered,

splintered 

in million pieces

it has suffered enough

no amount of assurance 

and a lesson in life 

can keep it 

from 

shredding,

tearing,

breaking

How do you survive?

To busy to think
To busy to blink
To busy to like the next Facebook link.

To busy to see the big issue seller in front of there feet.
You don’t even see the woman given out free treats .

“I Wish”

by Harry

Submitted by Priyanjali Gupta
.

All I ever wished for was a little wish to be happy. But now I wish that I might have well wished for another wish.
Because over the growing up years, through the childhood, the adolescent and the youth, the meaning of happiness has changed so many hands that I have lost count.
