a plethora of words

taken out of context

nouns, pronouns

verbs, adverbs

in similitude of mass conjecture

falling on deaf ears.

She’s cold
Cuddling for warmth
By herself,
I ache to be there
Wrap her in my arms
Safe and warm
(And snore-free, in my mind)
She can sleep peacefully through
The night

The Broken In Me

by ladyliterati

I’ll comfort you.

when times get rough

you’ve had enough

& no longer feel tough

just feel like giving up

I’ll comfort you.

when tears of despair fall

I will catch them all

toss them to the rain

wash away the pain.

then you’ll come to realize

this, this, is where love resides.

light came dancing through the trees

on twigs, branches, vibrant leaves

as day dawned delightfully:

just me, my garden,

and loose-leaf tea…O’Prunty 6/21/2020

Poem for Summer Solstice

by Alanna

I sought the perfect poem

for this longest day

It was a Goldilocks affair-

this poem too flowery

this poem- what does this one have to do

with Summer Solstice?

None were right

I cannot wear the words of these authors


So I must write my own poem

of what the Summer Solstice means to me

Briefly over powered by
Bullfrog or car,
Singing ever louder
A carpet of sound
Growing ever closer

The need
For her controlling
Tugging and pulling
My hair,
A needy itch
One only She can relieve,
An ache in my groin, head,
And heart.

He Stoked The Fires

he stoked the fires

hiding behind white walls

reveled in the discord

The winds swirl around me,
Empty of all, save a fine grit,
Abrasive and slowly eroding,
One repetitive day at a time
Until it’s finally over,
Six feet under or the oven,
And life no longer plucks at

I’m wrestling with the ice cream
Inside this soft scoop box
My spoon is bent,my patience spent
I’m trying to outfox
The barrier before me
To get my just dessert
I’ll hack at that unyielding mass
No matter what the hurt.

Long nails gouge my ego
With gnarled fingers.
Ever they’ve crept in my wake.
At last, my race is over.
