Gone Fishin'
by Delmar Pepper

I've finished life's chores assigned to me,
So put me on a boat headed out to sea.
Please send along my fishing pole
For I've been invited to the fishin' hole.

Where every day is a day to fish,
To fill your heart with every wish.
Don't worry, or feel sad for me,
I'm fishin' with the Master of the sea.

Alone
by Edgar Allan Poe

From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn

Inevitabil
by Pop Toni

Tu-mi înfățișezi inevitabilul
Care mă așteaptă
Reprezentăm sensibilul
Care din nevoie se adaptă

Diavolul săruta prin vânătăi
Lovește cu mâini sângerânde
Suporți mușcături de potăi
Care încă mi se arată blânde

Learning Positive Vibes
by Somali Mukherjee

The clock strikes four;

I’m never like before;

I’ve learnt to take life’s drink

Up to the lees from the brink;

Multiple layers of joy

INNER STORM
by Christabel Eze

Is it you that I want?
Yes, but you are not mine and thus I can not claim you.

I want a good life where I wake up with a smile on my face and the world outside nothing but a distant noise that i won't be bothered by.

In public I always lose myself and become someone else just to entertain people.

Sometimes I feel like my anxiety might fill up throat with the scalding pain of hot water and I would choke on it but won't complain or ask for help.

Everyday I wake up, sigh deeply and begin a day that always feels like it never ends.

I Couldn'T But Remember Thee
by Pijush Biswas

That afternoon would never be faded into my memory
thou stretchest thy loving heart towards me, or to
entangle my heart with.

As if, thou wert a fairy who knowest how to fly on the
azure sky of love upon her fluttering wings and
dominate the heavenly realm of love-making in this
blissful life.

Now I'm destined to tell the truth to thee that thou
