by Harry

Submitted by  R C AVHINASH SHARMA

World astir with the vibrant colours,
Yet, I was painted in grey, dark-grey.
Closer to the hue of black than grey.

wearing a cardboard sign.
Politely asking strangers,
if they could just be so kind.

The Poor Man

Today I stand on the outskirt of town
shiny brow
take out the towel
a decorated mast
to overcome each task
the gift of liquid courage
lines being drawn in the sand

HOPE

by Harry

Submitted by Frederick Calovich

.

Have you found what you think you have lost?
What has been, do you think the cost?
Since the world seems so full of delight,
Have your ears and eyes been so closed tight?

When you think about these things in kind,
Are there others things that come racing to mind?
Have you been walk-about in a fog or a haze?
Or do you just follow the latest craze?

Fucking demented but the blade ain’t near my wrist

Impossible to bleed over someone who gave me a tight fist

That was never real love

Just a mother fucking disaster I had to rise above

On Dying In A Mass Shooting

by Harry

Submitted by Joanne Olivieri

Bloody Chaos

The door swings open
rapid fire storm ensues
my body hurls to the ground
chaotic screams
deadly thunder pops
permeate bitter air pockets
and I lie still.

silence

by Harry

Submitted by cazcrown

.

And silence takes over the room

Crippling hearts, preventing full bloom

The darkness of sorrow, puts lust in sight

Crimson within your neck, I turn to bite

Sinking deeper, liquid grief fills my mouth

POEM: Halomancy

by merlinspielen

Take hold of this bottle of simple table salt,
feel the surface both solid and smooth resting in your palm,
know that this salty white chemical mix is the spark of want,
Can’t you feel the pull of desire in the looks we share?

When He takes over my body – does not scares me!

Hope and glory

by Harry

Submitted by Grant Stone

.

Corner of the bar
On a busy Saturday night
86 years old
Used to be a beauty
That’s what she tells everyone
Anyone who asks

it’s difficult to tell
Deep ridges covered in foundation
A derelict façade
Like a deserted storefront
in a broken down town

But she had come anyway
She had pleaded her case
Squirmed beneath their gaze
fully aware that this was their way

Fighting to stay afloat
Making sure I don’t sink in
Pulled by ferocious currents
Made of doubts and regrets.

Staking vampires in stairwells

Speed freak dressed in day two old clothes
torn pull tab pop up book hospital convenience
these hand crank windows speak of blood clot burnouts
cigarette stain apartment key pick up

screw bottom upholstery red spray cans
full of hundred dollar bills
stashed among performed tubular coin wrappers
familiar strangers in old hallways asking about your mothers health

Books are my Friends

by Harry

Submitted by Lucy Perceval

.

‘Books are my friends’, she said,
‘I have old ones and new ones
loved and unloved.
Some I start with and never finish:
Some I belong to and begin a short intense affair,
Until it’s over only warmth and joy,
Then dull memory and disappointment.

Cocooned in my womb,

Cocooned in my womb,
Hanging on for as long as she can,
Timing her entry with precision
Out with a smile
That’s my princess
Cute little sounds
Always talking away
No smiles for the camera

Fire of Love:

by Harry

Submitted by divadarshan

Seasons glide, through the Mirror of time.
Flowers bloom and fade too.
A beautiful sunny day comes to an end.
When night open its wings.
Glorious moon emerges on the extensive sky.
It never remains forever too.
