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

Too much These Days
by Beatrice Knox

I know you’re out there
I know you’re listening
All is not well
Each thought going at my brain
Brawling until I can I longer think
Until I can no longer feel
Uselessness cuts my legs
Isolation feeds on my tears
Each breathe runs fast
Oxygen is escaping quickly

Breakdown
by Tess Voetelink

From my eyes, down my cheeks, onto the ground.
With every tear that reaches the floor,
It feels as if I lose myself a little more.
The slowly fading awareness of everything around,
My rapid breathing and raising heartbeat being the only things left making a sound.
Me and my mind are yet again playing a game of tug and war,
But for some reason I never seem to be the one to score.
I lose my grip and fall back into a puddle of tears in which I hope I drowned
Everytime I think I'm okay standing back up again,
I get pushed back down.

Sonnet XXV – For Living I Was Born
by Khayelihle Bongiswa Gamedze

Not to shudder nor to fall,
Not to blubber nor to shake.
Not to run, not to give up;
Not to be enslaved by mistakes.

Not to bow down hopeless and cry
Not to blame God and ask why.
Not even to stop a little while...
Long the mile and naught the time.

Rotten memories
by tahjah may

Rotten memories

Glass breaking.
Doors slamming.
Yelling.
Staring at the hurricane in my home
I just stand still
what could an 8-year-old do.
Except stand and watch in fear.
My dad would throw things at everyone

Numb
by Yoko Fushigina

Even if world turns upside down,
Stars crumble like powdered sugar,
And all the creatures become torn and numb,
We will still sing and silently flicker.

Our mute voices will break through the clog,
They will fuse and fill all around.
Just as the beacon light through the fog
They will help the luck to be found.
