ILT (20/11/2018)
by Hendrico Valentijn

A multitude of fortnights passed us by,
We passents of time, our sorrow, we tried.

A spell of brief written touches.
Time and space were arranged.

The earth turned and turned.
Time and space were burned.

The wind ceased carrying sound.

April 19th
by green blue

April 19th. A date I’ll always remember. The date I knew we were done. The date I knew you were done with me. The date I knew you got bored. Isn’t this how most relationships end? One person gets bored and that’s it, the relationship is doomed. How unfair it is that suddenly I can see you drifting away and no matter what I do I just can’t bring you back. Once boredom infests a relationship there is nothing to be done cause from that point onwards attention is unwanted. My sweet words that you used to lose your mind over are just annoying and overbearing. My loving actions have become something that you pull through. My presence has become a weight that you ought to drop. The helplessness is killing me. I’ve been through this before. I’ve been the one to lose interest and I’ve been the one who’s no longer interesting, but it never felt this way. I knew it might happen but I never thought it would affect me that much. Why do you have so much control over me? But the bigger question is, how dare you? How dare you leave me now? How dare you leave me knowing what I’m going through? Or maybe you didn’t even notice what I’m going through. Maybe I gave you so much that you didn’t stop to consider that maybe I need something cause how can someone giving so much need anything. Maybe it was my fault. Maybe I wasn’t clear enough, but I expected you to know. I expected you to feel what I am feeling. I expected you to save me from the fear of opening up. I expected you to understand me without me talking about it. Maybe that was unfair of me to expect of you, but that was how much I though we connected. Obviously I was mistaken. Obviously I thought too much of our relationship. Maybe it was all in my head, cause if boredom is all that it took for you to give up on us then I was fooling myself thinking that we even had a chance. Just like that another date ruined. April 19th. Another day to remind me of how cruel life can be.

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

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?

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.

Missing Love
by S K

I’ve never known love

Grace, I showed
Intelligence, I possessed
Attention, I did not lack
With a man always at my back

Countless hearts, I used
Until they bruised
Meticulously, I dwindled men

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.

Ctrl-Alt-Del
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.

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.
