As ‌My Diary Cries
by AmirFarshad Sh

I write this now, moments after they quarrelled,
Depressing, I notice our evening plans got cancelled
Over one phone call dad made in the backyard,
Mom asked who that was? Then he flew off the handle,
"It doesn't concern you woman", he shouted,
I could hear her repeating the word "sorry" aloud and
Stuttering as she apologised for asking,
But the old man didn't care so he started unmasking
That hideous, fearful demon inside him,
Who made him feel like a man he took pride in,

They say it's cold outside
by Author Reinvented

They say it's cold outside,
That the wind cuts like a knife.
Is it possible they lied?

I can't feel it.

They say its warm inside,
That home's where the heart
abides.
Am I frozen in time?

Bruised
by Nancy Altraide

I was awaken by the scream
It sounded like pain
What is going on?
I asked myself
The scream became unbearable
So I began to locate the sound
It was coming from my neighbors house
He was having an argument with his wife
He had lost his temper and hit her
And left her bruised and shattered

Deficient
by T Lupulin

Softly as she tumbles
Quietly as she treads
Through those hollow rooms
That live inside her head
Memories, they've escaped
Years she cannot feel
Stripped away from someone younger
Not remembering what is real
For some, this bears no burden
Certainly it bought some peace

Victim
by Camron Thompson

Let your hands come off the throat of your victim
I am no longer what you define myself as
Scars remain, but the knowledge of their purpose
Blades are dropped, and tears are dried
Plant the seed, water such with my tears
Strength and will grows as the light ever dims
Chains breaking as I will forever shatter you
Not am I to be made another of your victims
So many young minds and age wisdom left behind
Repair the mirror with gauze and bandages

A Gift of Scars
by Aishat Yahkub

I wish you could see
All the scars you gifted me
When memories of you haunt my dreams,
ominous suffocating shadows
I trace them with the jagged cliffs of my
ripped fingers
Another tribute to you
These constellation of scars,
make a winding map
To the nick you etched on my soul

darkness
by Lauren Davies

i feel my way through the darkness, stumbling
over every bump
falling through every crack
looking for you
holding my hand out for you;
always looking
for you.
one day i will remember it was you
who took away the light

super glue
by Lauren Davies

you break my heart once;
twice;
again;
and again;
and again;
i hold my heart together with sellotape,
holding out hope, too much hope, that
one day you’ll give me the super glue
to keep me from breaking
permanently
