The Most Beautiful Flower

by markfahmy

flower

Once I thought,
that the most beautiful flower
grows in the middle of fields.
And among the lush green,
she sways and dances with the breeze.

Mirrors

Mirrors reflect
what we wish to see
Mirrors tell
of other people we’re dying to be

Mirrors speak
what we’d like to hear
Mirrors hide
what we want to see disappear

falling (in love)​

by Dave

you pushed me 
off a cliff.

i fell 

you giggled 
as I spun, 
trapped in sheets 
of sleep.

Paper World

The air thick with pages,

words etched on every one.

The emptying of a soul,

One more day
One more day you pull yourself through
One more day you search for any clue
One more day you choose to see the light
One more day you decide to fight

Round and round it goes.

Washing over brains.

Order demanded in your line,
Capitals are no lower actors,
Left alone you cannot shine.

Poem by Wendy Norman

It’s warm inside with muted song
My mama purrs this is where you belong
I float and twirl not a care in this world
You dream of me to be unfurled

I cannot see but float and twist
Swooshing waves of fluid to resist
I hear your heart pounding deep
My life depends on this drum beat

A mind blank, making nothing
Fingers empty with high desire
