by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I believed in fitness and healthy living, including obtaining sufficient sleep,
To revel for years in buttery sunshine, which makes emerald willows weep.

I consumed only healthier foods, including plenty of fruits and vegetables,
As the glassy, black midnight water, reaches up for moonlight collectibles.

Exercise was part of my daily routine, at times running, at others walking,
On the street of scarlet butterflies, where lazy blackbirds were squawking.

I was in the wild midst of the happy years, like a rare diamond in the sun,

A thousand sun pleaded
by Khalid Hasan

A thousand sun I pleaded
In the name of thou dream.
But all that I had left in me
was malicious scream.
in those moment of silence
I shattered and became violent
in the name of righteousness
I committed sin.

A thousand sun I pleaded

Dear Crush: Please, Please Don't Read This
by Sarah Turner

I don’t know what love is,
I don’t know how it feels.
Is it wanting your lips on mine?
Or is it something more real?
I’m confused,
I’m blowing this out of proportion.
It’s like I’ve never met anybody else,
Oh, god I’m so desperate.
Waiting for hours on end,
Consumed by my so-called fantasy.

One more
by Hannah Woerner

I often wonder when I’m writing
Why, what use is it to take these words in my head and put them on a piece of paper

It’s not like they’ll ever be shared

It’s not like someone would read them and care

I often wonder am I just stalling until I learn how to speak again

Stalling until the storms and the silent thunder that echo in the cavern of my mind finally find their strength and learn how to die

First He looked confused
by Daniel Ladinsky

I could not lie anymore so I started to call my dog 'God.'
First he looked
confused,

then he started smiling, then he even
danced.

I kept at it: now he doesn't even
bite.

Personal Problems
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was an active and happy person, and had a great fondness for movies,
Like the enthusiastic nature lover, bears a fondness for outdoor beauties.

I indulged in both the old and new movies, those of almost every genre,
Like thunder rumbling through the mountains, to afford our lives drama.

I'd had this habit for a very long time, ever since I was a teenage child,
Glorying in happy days of youth, on byways where sunshine has smiled.

I had a job and other interests, but got lost in movies on the weekends,

My Worst Day, Bar None
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was a public relations specialist, ever promoting positivity to people,
As positivity is promoted afar, by the sight of the towering cathedral.

My work was very interesting, there weren't ever two days the same,
As an exotic world of ages past, would be dazed at what time became.

For ten years, I had held that job, and I was often required to travel,
As breezes gusting into dining rooms, often must blow out the candle!

I lived in a large metropolitan area, and drove to my valued job daily,

Exposed to Rain...
by Fariha Farid

Watch the sky stumble.
As the clouds bundle,
Let them all fumble.
For such ignorant blunder.

Just a little rumble.
Jolting a crackle.
And it'll all crumble.
The water pringles-(to tingle persistently or annoyingly).

Roses
by Megha Mittal

The bougainvilleas haven't bloomed
either
too much water or
too
little
I can't
know what
they want
all I know
is what
