The confused warrior
by Lynda Grine

Can you win a war that is not yours to win?
Muster the strength for a fight you should lose?
My darling, love is not a battlefield
And I was never your enemy

When We Were Four
by Jacob George

Dinner each day
The time slowly passes
Four round plates
Two pairs of glasses
Together each day
Never unfurled
Sharing what we had to say
About the world

When summers heat

Why should a foolish marriage vow
by Paul Durcan

Dear Nessa - Now that our marriage is over
I would like you to know that, if I could put back the clock
Fifteen years to the cold March day of our wedding,
I would wed you again and, if that marriage also broke,
I would wed you yet again and, if it a third time broke,
Wed you again, and again, and again, and again, and again:
If you would have me which, of course, you would not.
For, even you - in spite of your patience and your innocence
(Strange characteristics in an age such as our own)
- Even you require to shake off the addiction of romantic love

Divorce
by Anna Wickham

A voice from the dark is calling me.
In the close house I nurse a fire.
Out in the dark, cold winds rush free,
To the rock heights of my desire.
I smother in the house in the valley below,
Let me out to the night, let me go, let me go.
Spirits that ride the sweeping blast,
Frozen in rigid tenderness,
Wait! for I leave the fire at last
My little-love's warm loneliness.

Forgive Me
by Alex Karahalios

Mother I want you to know I'm sorry for being a piece of shit
I'm sorry about the problems I've have caused within you and dad
I'm sorry I was never there for you to comfort you on your darkest time
I hate myself cause I know I was the reason for your’s and dad’s divorce


I feel like life for you and dad would have better without me in the picture
I still get angry at the fact that I was the reason for your depression
I wish i was never involved at any of our family photos
Dad always told me that you guys loved me but i’m sure that's a lie

Star Stuff
by Tyler Morello

Science says we're born of steam and stardust,
The spoils of supernovae given life.
I have proof that I am made of Starburst,
The simple gesture made my mom a wife.
Father slept in class with one palm open,
My mother placed a pink one in his hand.
I owe my life to that single moment,
A sweet display of love she hadn't planned.
Twelve long years their hearts withstood division,
Together they raised three unruly boys.

The Trip
by Lindsay W

This feels…
It feels like going on a road trip
Best friend at the helm
Trusting fully that they get you to your concerted destination

You sleep.
You trust.
You smile.
You feel the breeze.
You breathe.

Life Is To Short To Score Little
by Christen Kuikoua

It Is not Death Most people are Afraid Of
But it is getting to the end of life only to realize
That you never truly lived
Most people On Their Dead Bed,
Don't regret the things they did
but the things they didn't do
The risks they never took
and Finally the dream they didn't pursue
So if I ask You today
will you last Words be ' If Only I had'
