on my eyes you tip toe
shimmering in splendour

too far to embrace

Acrostic – Feather and Shadow – September 25, 2014

by Georgia



Feather and Shadow

Feather laying upon the grass caused
Eternal questions to pass through my mind …
And contemplating it on the green grass
There came to me a silly thought …

edging past speed of sound

Diverge in meaning

Seeing Ones Self

by graypoet


I have paused at the mirror and wondered
What image is projected, how am I perceived
Do others accept me in the way that I believe
Do I correctly interpret the looks that I receive.

Civilized Sheep

We’ve been bred

Never a Question

Distracted by petty superiority

With the book of life
Tucked under my mind
In the night’s shadows
My thoughts rewound
Into sounds of my past
A waltz buried beneath
In soft depths of nature

Life’s Inverse Laws

by Venkat

The closer we get in mind
More space I see between
The more I attempt to find
Less clarity on what was seen

The larger I make my heart
More troubles seem to come
The more I try to be a part
Less I want to become

A single goal in sight

Squirming as trapped mice

Find the edge of light

A life of forty years

Seemed like darkness

Sounds of a new truth to ears

Shook me senseless

A dream,
Nothing so sweet,
Than to be given,
All you could need.

A wish,
Finally come true,
The star shining bright,
The right one to choose.

scrub. rinse. repeat.

by suicidallyanonymous

She’s going to break you,
she’s going to break you,
she’s going to break you.

It’s just that chunk
of bitter repetition
in symphony,
in harmony,
in melody,
with your strep throat
and cold shoulder.

with the deficiency in our kneecaps;
we are both broken
from falling.

I guess you can see it, too:
the shame;
the guilt.
Look down and walk away…

It Takes Two

by Venkat

Imagine food

You did not taste

A fantasy mood

For someone chaste

A soccer play

A single team

Sunny day

No sunbeam

A strong opinion

No interaction

On earth, an alien
