conquering all of my fears

Jemverse II

by Jem Croucher

So I’ve been writing for a while
a poem every day
Been doing this for fifty years
so I’ve along the way
picked up (I’d say) a trick or two
over all that time
of how to craft words into verse
which flow and nicely rhyme

wider they grow
at the fall of a pebble
after a throw

No Voice Left

by graypoet


Forrest reminded us that life is like a box of chocolates
Who knows what we will get as we go though challenges
There are times we see planets align we feel so blessed
Then we turn around, almost knocked down by changes.

A response poem to Davy D’s question What Is Poetry? on the Go Dog Go Cafe

it is a stir

an ache

rising from my core

growing in urgency

pushing to my surface

gasping hungrily for air

A Voice Like Lava Flowed

by braveandrecklessblog

Once I whispered my truths

to the unfeeling dawn


my words began to build up

choke me

overtake me

and in the stifling silence

The Truth About Words

by braveandrecklessblog

The dilemma of finally finding her voice

Was that it was not enough

Simply to speak


This voice

Which had lain dormant

Inside of her for so long

We Have Only Ourselves: Inauguration 2017

by scatterednotebooks


An overwhelming sense of foreboding
that only time will tell;
Will we be sucked into darkness
and follow the hordes to hell,

or will we, with vigilance and conscience,

Outside Kings Cross station
In London North West One
there’s an interactive poetry wall
that’s intuitive and fun
Encouraging interaction from
a transient populous
It’s a wonderful invention
which I think is marvellous

with bombs in mind to decimate
arguing to define what really ‘is’

heart patched

Have you ever been walking down the street
You hear a sound that makes you stand still
Like a voice from the past calling your name
Remembering departed ones, always will.

The broken voice

by Jem Croucher

When Jimmy woke that fateful day
He knew something had gone away
(But what it was he could not tell
For he couldn’t speak or shout or yell)

Loop Poetry: Her Voice

by Venkat

Her feelings caught

Caught in a human cage

Cage of words in her thought

Thought she tries to let go with rage

Hard as she tries

Tries to express

Express the tears she cries

Cries, neglected in wilderness

“I’ll Be The Greatest Fan Of Your Life”

by blackandwhiteartist

YOU TRIED to read what’s written in my paper
I was shy so I tried to cover it with my hand
But I heard you read the words silently
So I was unsuccessful in covering it
Then I look at you and saw the smile on your face
Then I look into your eyes and saw the sparkling of it.

I didn’t search for you in our class
But I notice I haven’t seen you
So upon realizing, it made me frown
How did I notice without searching for you
So I’m oblivious to the fact that I searched for you?
So I’m oblivious to the fact that I wanted to see you?
