I don't know you anymore
by Light AR

We knew each other when we were young.
The hairs between my eyebrows touched.
Your chin was bare, and cheeks were smooth,
unperturbed by decaying youth.

Staring at my hands while you
looked intently at my dry lips.
Impassioned glances have not held
the same innocence since we've hit
the stage ruled by expectation.

Haunted Love
by Julz M

I settled on a thought so dreary,
In an empty house that feels so eerie,
The thought was of you,  and of you peering,
Inside my haunted house.

That house is somehow in my mind,
How can somebody be so unkind?
To tear down something that I thought was mine,
Inside my haunted house.

Beautiful endings
by Mrunal Chatterjee

Sunsets are proof that endings can be beautiful,
You and I were beautiful too.

As turn the pages of memories with you,
I’m left with a warm feeling in my heart,
Of all those moments spent with you.
Those long conversations by the lake,
Those moments we had under the muted street light,
Those long walks by the beach,
All these I’ll never trade for any treasure in the world.

Sunflower Dreams
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

In pink mists,
sunflowers aren't seen,
craving sun,
of June noon.
Midday blooms laugh in meadows
of ageless summer!

Longing
by Ina Coolbrith

O foolish wisdom sought in books!
O aimless fret of household tasks!
O chains that bind the hand and mind—
A fuller life my spirit asks!

For there the grand hills, summer-crowned,
Slope greenly downward to the seas;
One hour of rest upon their breast
Were worth a year of days like these.

But where was mom and dad
by JUAN 4LIFE

Father was there sometimes
but where was my dad
Where was he when I was sad
Mother was there
but where was my mom
Where was she, when I cut on and on
I think my parents gave me some issues
But I don’t think it was on purpose
Im also trying to understand as to why
Why is it, that they’ve made me wanna die

Passion between us.
by Karina M

The fire burning between us as the cold metal behind my back anchored us to the earth. Lightheadedness making me fly up so high as I held in my breath.
To forget about everything and only be you and I in that small box. That’s the only fire I wanna be chasing.
