How do I explain? (A poem about Borderline personality disorder)
by Allison Anderson

How do I explain
That my emotions are painful
That happiness is euphoria
That anger is blinded rage
That love borders obsession
How do I explain
That my emotions are my enemy
That sadness is suicidal thoughts
That pain is an agonizing fire that consumes me
That emotions are a hurricane

They know
by Aletheia Tinea

The eyes stare and creep out of the sockets, leap from the skulls. They fall to the floor, slime and goo running down the slouching cheeks from the black void abysses. The eyes still stare. Spring tiny feet, arachnids’ feet. Slowly, disjointedly crawling, slime trails behind them, towards me. All the colours, creeping closer, reaching for me. I run into a corner, close my lids, receding into myself, folding into where everything is dark, and nothing can reach. The shadows trick me into peeking. I look through my hair; one blue eye has reached my foot. Rooted, I want to squish it, but my will freezes and the screams scratch and rip my insides and tear my throat and pull apart my vocal chords but still the little blue eye creeps and crawls and climbs my leg with its furry little spider legs and it reaches my shoulder and whispers

I know

and the slime and goo slide up my cheek and the legs push my eye rolling it back into my head and the little blue eye climbs in the socket looking into my brain seeing everything and hating the ugliness almost as much as i do

Ego
by Ali Abdullah

She’s tricky
She undermines your progress
Suggesting things based on what you’re weak about
You realize in her absence it was all nonsense

*****

She attacks you, she protects you
She distract you with things you don’t need
Just to get herself stronger

Consumed No More
by Joanne Lee Macdermott

I used to think like it was a past time, occupied by every thought. Unaware that I was even thinking, chained to this god dam curse.

Would feel the pain of others take it on as if its mine, allow gravity to dissolve me and bend me how it likes. Dense feelings of ugliness fighting to find my worth. Find comfort in the shallow things to justify my worth.

Try to numb the chattering the dark voices in my head, but nothing will silence them. I fear not even death.

Keep fighting…fought back the tides that carried me to my watery grave. Need release from the rip but no one comes to my aid.

But still over all the noise that vibrates in my head. There is this yearning begging to be fed.

Barney Fife..(L.A.P.D) End Police Brutality!!
by Terrell Richardson

Their force is excessive
, extremely aggressive
with a selective few, if you surprised it's not you.
You probably wouldn't understand
But feel me cuz me and mine can comprehend to
Barney Fife, In his hands playing with my life,
it ain't right to send him out at night,
mad at his wife, cause she leaving.... The second divorce in Four seasons,
Another reason for pistol packin and thieving, with tricks up his sleeve if he sleeveless,
check his boots & pop the trunk Mr Fife where's the loot?

You know my name
by Earl Grubb

I set upon my hardy stead and survey the land . His color is pale up to his mane and crown. Do you know my name. The is land is now filled with calamity and pestilence a foreboding sign. Inheritance from the ancestors who dug from the ground and flung to the air without any bind. Do you know my name. Greed and malice has spawn this tide. And stewardship of this land has been lost through the stride. Do you know my name. Though speed of knowledge has tripled on fold. Wisdom has been lost as told in the book of old. And the spawn of evil and false prophets make there stand. Fools of follie with names of Thump Pout and Xing portray to their followers a superior command. Do you know my name .Will this lot stay the course and bring forth the apocalypse foretold My followers await for they are many Legion amongst them whose reigns of this stead they ultimately hold. Do you know my name. My name is written by a biblical sriib. It is in the book of Revelation which you can confide. You face me every day with good and bad. I am the last stand that will come upon this land. You know my name

LONELINESS - ALEXIS KARPOUZOS
by alexis karpouzos

Loneliness, Emotional pain, walks with us through the day,
and sleeps with us through the night,
Tears that is not visible to the naked eye,
silent screams that no one can hear,
feeling of relentless distress,
Trapped with nowhere to turn,
life is changing beyond our control,
someone else is pulling the strings,
causing this deep ache in the bottom of our soul.
but remember, for every soul there is a soul that touches yours –

A foreign shore - Alexis karpouzos
by alexis karpouzos

If desires fly by like shadows,
If vows are empty words,
Is it worth it to live in this fog of delusion?
Is it worth it to live if the truth is dead?
is it worth when life’s summer grows to winter?
Then it is to know what love is,
waiting on a foreign shore.
