entanglements
by Jessica C

I’ve tried so many times to stop remembering
but every time
I stand still
all I see is an ocean of your blue
eyes
and I start to sink
with the disappointment wrapping around me tighter
than you ever did
and everything that was
or was supposed to be

The House of Fame
by Richard Randolph

I waited outside the House of Fame
as there was nothing else to do.
Then, when nearly all hope was loss,
an important woman noticed me there.
She took my hand and said I had promise
before disappearing into a well-lit hall.
Soon afterward, the large doors closed
and it was very dark, and I was cold.
But I could still hear the music playing
and see people on a moonlit balcony.

Platonic Love
by PYG's Whisper

True love never dies
Loyal souls never change
Don’t distort the beauty of fairy tales
Don’t blame it on life
Don’t blame it on you
Don’t fake your heart
‘Cause I won't do
Thought you were my angel
So I gave you my wings
Now you're ready to fly?

Not knowing what you should or shouldn't feel,
Is to find out, no matter what you've said
About the cramped escapes and obstacles

Seeking Positive Change
by Margaret Desmond

Seeking Positive Change

What has Ireland goverment done to us?!
Killed our nations soul
Ripping us off of every cent

Don't have a mattress to lie on
Sleep on a couch, my makeshift bed, my home
I light a fire at night to keep me warm and bright

Drop
by Nastasimir Franović

Drop

You wanted to reach the star halos.
With the strength of Hercules,
By the beauty of Apollo.
By the meanness of Brutus,
And where did you get to?
To the anguish of Diogenes, to the disappointment of Odysseus.
You forgot to take off the black sail.
Jupiter's Ira followed you.
