your soul fall
into the sadness

this time
I won’t let you
hurt yourself
as I watch
you bleed

A fall from grace III

by Jem Croucher


I found it on the high tide line
after a night of fire
the grand old lady of the sea
destroyed by spite and ire
Never proved but always known
her final hours presumed
the work of arsonists with flame

A Wasted Day

by S. K. Reiter

A wasted day, what can I say,

A wasted day, what can I say,
with no energy, no not even to play.
A drift to the kitchen for a cup of tea
and a glance out the window to see.

Silencing my words

Shutting all doors

As if burying my soul

A Broken Umbrella

by Sorrows In A Serenade

We’ll dance a waltz in the rain.
the twirling raindrops breeze past us
And the lovely patters sing.

We’ll grow our roses in the rain.
the soothing winds fondle our creation
And blooming petals rise.
