by Erica Scott

I’m afraid these words are beginning to feel too real,
the commas are forgetting to separate.
I’m afraid my mind is stuck in that place,
far from where I’m going,
close to where I hate.
I’m afraid that I’m becoming the very stories I write to erase.

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

Notes
by Rachel Wright

I turned to the last page
in my notebook and wrote
about everything I know

About you and me, I wrote
the sweetest things

Just know,
I didn't mean any of it

Dearest Darling
by Majentus Poetry

My Darling,
If one day, all the roses wilt and all the leaves have fallen,
would you still choose to water the bushes and pick up the pieces?

Would you still sing beautiful melodies in the morning if the sun was hidden
beneath a field of clouds?

For one day, I, too, will be withered.
I, too, will crave to hear your sound.

I laughed
by green blue

I laughed. I laughed and you didn’t know why. I laughed because I knew it was over. I laughed because all the stereotypes are true. I laughed at how anticlimactic that was. I laughed at myself for knowing it was over but not saying anything just so you can reach that conclusion yourself so that you can break up with me just for the sake of sparing your pride. I laughed that at the moment i felt betrayed by the person closest to me and i still picked you over myself. I laughed at the frailness of a love that was forged by the fire of adversity when it faced the coldness of fear. Maybe i’m not in love with you but i sure as hell love you.

Who am I?
by Erica Scott

The hue of green in my eyes hides the darkness below,
But my charming smile distracts best.
I'm not as soft as my skin feels,
Or as tough as my morning voice sounds.
I do my best convincing underneath a mask.

I am weaker than my words.
A combination of 26 little letters,
Teeny.
Tiny.

False Religion
by Erica Scott

And as the letters of my name curl beneath your lips,
I hope they burn like vinegar and drip down your chin.
I hope the thought of who I am wraps your skull like the crown of thorns you love to nag about
When you crucify my reputation,
I hope you think of the religion you announce so proud.
Tell me, does Jesus lie to save himself?

Ode to Heart
by Zaheer Abass

As I lay me down to sleep,
I ask God not my soul to keep;
But rather pray, my heart to save,
From sure and certain early grave.

In broken pieces there he lies
Within my chest and slowly dies;
As life’s cruelty, rooted so deep,
Cause tears of blood when he dares weep.
