The Unseen Playmate
by Robert Louis Stevenson

When children are playing alone on the green,
In comes the playmate that never was seen.
When children are happy and lonely and good,
The Friend of the Children comes out of the wood.

Nobody heard him, and nobody saw,
His is a picture you never could draw,
But he's sure to be present, abroad or at home,
When children are happy and playing alone.

Forbidden Romance
by Nad SZA

In the silence of my own mind, I carry a burden
A struggle and pain that no one else can see
No friends, no family, no one to confide in
About the heartbreak that tore me apart inside

My first love, a forbidden romance
A story that many would judge and decry
But if you walked in my shoes just for a moment
You would see why I was willing to lie

On Death
by Percy Bysshe Shelley

The pale, the cold, and the moony smile
Which the meteor beam of a starless night
Sheds on a lonely and sea-girt isle,
Ere the dawning of morn's undoubted light,
Is the flame of life so fickle and wan
That flits round our steps till their strength is gone.

O man! hold thee on in courage of soul
Through the stormy shades of thy wordly way,
And the billows of clouds that around thee roll

The Law Of The Yukon
by Robert William Service

This is the law of the Yukon, and ever she makes it plain:
"Send not your foolish and feeble; send me your strong and your sane --
Strong for the red rage of battle; sane for I harry them sore;
Send me men girt for the combat, men who are grit to the core;
Swift as the panther in triumph, fierce as the bear in defeat,
Sired of a bulldog parent, steeled in the furnace heat.
Send me the best of your breeding, lend me your chosen ones;
Them will I take to my bosom, them will I call my sons;
Them will I gild with my treasure, them will I glut with my meat;
But the others -- the misfits, the failures -- I trample under my feet.

Falling Asleep
by Siegfried Sassoon

Voices moving about in the quiet house:
Thud of feet and a muffled shutting of doors:
Everyone yawning. Only the clocks are alert.

Out in the night there’s autumn-smelling gloom
Crowded with whispering trees; across the park
A hollow cry of hounds like lonely bells:
And I know that the clouds are moving across the moon;
The low, red, rising moon. Now herons call
And wrangle by their pool; and hooting owls

Pretty Little Wishes
by Zee K

Have you ever noticed her cracked lips
Bruises on her arms
Stress lines and eye bags
Or those tear-filled eyes at night

With those hollow eyes and cheeks
That forced smile remained still
She was born a fighter
But she learned to 'survive'

The Alien's Embrace
by Dhritiraj Das

Walking down the giant road
Lights ever bright, beings unknown
I'm the alien, displaced and lone
In this strange realm I can't call home

Adrift in a sea where I'll never belong
Peering at fractured reflections, feeling so wrong
But then a few souls, with welcoming grace
Reached out to this alien, fashioned a place

The Sailboat
by Natalie Harmon

The little girl that sits on top of the sand hill
Waiting for the sailboat
Funny because she knows nothing about a sail boat

With no shoes and knots in her hair
She blames herself for the sailboat not coming

So she overcompensates this part of her life with bad jokes
But she knows that the sailboat will eventually be there

Another day passes by
by Mayank Nirala

Still waiting
It feels forever, Since you crossed by me;

My heart longs, to be altered in a way
You made me skip a beat;

I sit aside, eyes waiting
but i procure none i crave;

Each second feels protracted
