Love Hurts
by Dianne Lim

A precious thing
Yet fragile
You make it blooming
Like a beautiful flower.

Give and take actions going on
Slowly, taken for granted
Putting the old love aside
Without noticing it is hurting badly

Samson and Delilah
by Mary Jacqueline Simon Moo

What is Samson's boasted strength
Before Delilah's art!
He must yield to her at length
And tell her all his heart.
She has got his secret now,
Got his head upon her lap,
And cuts the locks which shade his brow,
Then wakes him from his nap:

Wakes him from his pleasing sleep

Parting gift
by Bastian Kraft

Soft and nimble as the
summer wind upon the daffodil.

Strong and mighty as the
solemn oak upon the grass hill.

Full of lust for life
and passion so lively evermore.
You run to plentiful coast
and faster yet to evening shore.

A True Mother's Love
by Patarica D. Nunn

A mother's love is consistent
and patient, it will never fade.
A mother's love is warm and
compassionate, even in the
shade. A mother's love will
always help you through the
weakest hours. A mother's love
is always like a bouquet of
flowers. A mother's love is
strong and will never steer

Unexpected Love
by YingDu Le

Love is ever changing,
cuz when I first saw you it was me who was complaining.
I thought it wouldn’t work and wouldn’t fit,
But as it turns out we share the same shit.

I love your smile and your face turning red,
Your wit and playfulness.
I never expected and never felt like this,
For when you came into my life
It was through a dating app.

In Arts Name
by Lia P

she hated the girl who stood on the wall before her
her reflection
it startled many but not him
he enjoyed her imperfections
he called her art
every crevice in her body and every sound she let out her mouth to him was art

Purple Rhythms
by Lia P

Every key your soft gentle finger tips touch
every note, filled with so much of your passion, angst, weep,
your guffaw,
and your giggles
they taste sweet of yellow daffodils
and treacly like the honey from the summer bees
they empty my soul leaving me keen on you
their smell introduces me to a world I want to know
a world of you
and watching you sitting there play

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

Unworthy hands

You gave me your heart in my hands
“Keep it safe”, you said
I held it tight with my nails
As you watched, it bled
