Terraced Iron Mountain
by Ayatullah Nurjati

My neighborhood is flanked by terraced iron mountains
Dark clouds seemed to surround him
The river water is also murky black
They say they are victims of urbanization

A city that always beats 24 hours a day
Its activities have been bound in a labyrinth
Modernity displays the face of emptiness
I, who live there, find it very, very difficult to meet and chat with honesty

Clawed By Emptiness Of Knowledges
by Pijush Biswas

They are born with extra-ordinary senses,
Know everything of life before birth;
Righteousness is the only purpose to them
And it makes them rush.
Where knowledges is empty searching in earth
That all wisdoms fell to be under feet,
And life can be filled with other things or ways;
So somehow emptiness enlarges their hands,
Clawed to kill these,
May tame them to feel good inside them.

Vacancy
by Disha Shree

Felt like the ghost in the world of paper dolls,
More even like the ghost in my own machine,
I was the ghost running through time and space,
And the world became a noise, a distraction to be in.

People being the fragment of fire, barely a cinder,
It never mattered because I was the gasoline,
Soul was silent, chill in my blood,
Coldness bringing the synapses of my brain to a stand still.

This is NOTHING
by Lily Isong

This is NOTHING

This is how emptiness feels;

Like a glass, you're holding it, it's warm.
like a mirror even.
heavy, you see yourself in it.
It's crystal clear, it's shaped in a way you like, you turn it towards the sun, it reflects.
you can tell the direction of the sun with it.
I guess.

In The Darkness
by Marcus Malkowicz

As I lay in the darkness
Wide awake
Trapped in my thinking
As I feel unwanted

Selfish thinking I know
Desiring the embrace
Though what I lack
The pain it brings
