Open Office Eavesdropper
by Frangipani Retrograde

Listen out across the room
To others' conversations
They seem to flow so sweet and free
Nothing like my emotions

Jealous of the way they speak
With confidence and humor
As though they know their priorities
Of which mine, I'm never sure

envy
by gabriella Blake

What will it take for me to have what you have. How did you get so lucky. I want what you have. I’d kill for that. For someone that loves me. For someone who holds me. For someone who knows me. Every inch. For someone to laugh with and someone to call mine. For something safe and for something real.

The Last.
by Alexandra Davis

Mate at the back of the class, hoping this feeling won’t last
Just for once
To be like them. With their Swan necks
Long legs
Never out of breath

Warm smiles. Dead behind the eyes
A litany of sins
All ready to repent

The Moor Maid's Jealousy
by Josias Homely

(A Ballad.)
When the lark is at rest, in her grass-woven nest,
And the lapwing at even is seeking her home ;
When the last light of day is just dying away,
And the ring-plover's sleeping among the green broom,
And the plover sleeps in the green broom.

When silence prevails o'er the hills and the dales.
And day with its noise and its labour is o'er.
O then comes a sound, which makes my heart bound.

The Perfect
by Cameron Phillips

She's the god of altruism.
Powerful, Peaceful, Proper.
Precision in her every move
yet laid back and full of personality.
I'll admit, jealousy runs through me.

I'd call it admiration,
Or maybe something more.
Yet I cannot compare.
But, as they always say;

A toast
by Marie sponte

I sit at a ginormous table with all the friends and family
My plus one seat left vacant
I know both the bride and the groom
So where would I sit
It didn’t really matter I guess
Because either side I'd sit on id still be there alone
Watching the love they have and always have had
The day dreaming is abruptly interrupted
as it is time for the toasts
I try to suppress my laughter when I think about how

New little brother
by Author Reinvented

Mother's there, her eyes are bright,
Papa's beaming by her side,
And in her arms, a bright delight
Baby brother, little bro.

A picture hanging on the wall
Band-Aids plastered after a fall,
Mother's there to cure it all,
And baby brother, little bro
