When
by j d

When the feeling is gone and the days are too long
When you’re crying for fear, of deciding wrong

When sky always grey and the suns far too bright
When you can never sleep
When you’re out every night
When you’re too nauseous to eat & too nauseous to sleep
And the evil thoughts
Begin to creep

Irrational
by Shilla Marshmellow

Deep in red,
Lady bleeds,
Heat blotted,
Blowing gusts.

Apple to pale,
Gushing wind,
Tides change,
Toys drowned.

Malignant
by Amrin Fatema

What is malignant
The abnormal mass,
Making you weak and shrivelled
Conveying the night pains,
Stealing sleep
That's s not just the malignant

The raptures of melancholy
Eve teasing hooligans,
The daughter paying with her education

Something About The Waves
by Nancy Nile

It was something about the waves
Rising strong and tall
Breaking soft and small
A sense of calm my body craves

It was something about the reflection
A distorted being holding me captive
A version of me that speaks in cursive
It’s easy to forget the mirror too is broken

A Multitude of Woes
by Carl Halling

Yes, there was a time
I was obsessed by melancholy,
I saw deep sadness,
The quality that so tormented
My former favoured idols,
Poets, painters,
Musicians, actors,
Creators of every kind,
As glamorous and romantic,
But it’s not,

Until the Music Spots
by Brendon Hall

Strolling in the evergreen park so slow
Head sinking to the speckled concrete
The cracks mirroring a broken sentiment
Press play and a sweet song blares
Then the black veil lifts ever so slightly

The feeling unsustainable yet welcomed
Vibrations echoing deep through each fiber of being
Melancholy holds no sway in this domain
The beat builds as runners pass by in cardiac bliss

Black Magic
by Brendon Hall

Winter rolls in just in time to freeze my heart
Close my eyes and take me back to the start
Before the storm rolls in and black magic clouds my brain
Can’t help but wonder how long I can sustain

A corrupted heart, thoughts darker than the abyss walked
The remedy flowing through my veins, as I lose my ability to talk
Strolling through the valley of the shadow of death
Looking around and notice I’m the last one left

Whisper From the Reaper
by Brendon Hall

A secret whispered in the dark
Eardrums ringing like a bell in the unwatched tower
The unrevealed crash lands with the grace of a ballistic missile
Blackness embodied deep within the tenuous roots
Spreading, creeping through every last sinew
Drowning in the bile, joy lost and never found

The rapture no longer holds sway
An abyss never ending, sinking deeper to oblivion
Falling with no gravity, suspended in tortuous creation
