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

Stairs of Solace
by Allison Anderson

At the stair's summit, shadows dance,
A girl perched high, in a quiet trance.
Between wooden slats, she glimpses a fray,
A hushed exchange, where words betray.

Whispers crawl, a tempest's rise,
Crimson ember in her hazel eyes.
A silent witness to the strained refrain,
The heaviness of strife, an unseen chain.

i’ll always love you
by CJ Lara

“I’ll always love you,”
you said
and at the time
i believed you,
believed the notion of pity
under thinly veiled expressions-

oh, he’s ashamed,
oh so ashamed
oh what else

n0n3xistent
by Mister Rotten

I attempt to belong as a hunter, someone standing apart from your entity,
to restrain tautological blunders; yield myself to the sedative’s lenity.
I attempt to belong as a seeker, be of significance on my own right,
but contrary to all these endeavours… I collide with my own despite.

I whip myself on like a horse, trusting failure to be hematobic,
advancing excessive wars, self-sufficient and misanthropic.
under pressure of ceaseless wantage, I obsess about being faultless,
yet I’m at absolute disadvantage, unmindful if I endorse this.

The Rejected Baby
by Randy Johnson

It was my moral duty to operate and in many people's eyes, I was admired.
I did what needed to be done and because of that, I was fired.
Four years ago, a baby was born with Down Syndrome and he had a heart defect.
Because of his mental impairment, he was a baby who his parents chose to reject.
I told the parents that without an operation, their baby would die.
They told me not to operate and sadly, I understood the reason why.
They wanted him to die because of his Down Syndrome and some others and I protested.
The parents were taken to court but the judge agreed with what the parents requested.
Even though that damn judge upheld the parents decision, I operated anyway.
I saved that baby's life but my superiors were outraged and decided to make me pay.

silk soothed curtains
by aditya vats

Squatted i stayed in
the study shelves,
with no tiny tentacles of light
lashing in
the cemented crimson walls.

With a silencing sound
on my knocking
dusted,
dark,

the repressed
by norman rockwell

"No matter when I recall the times of my youth, I remembered how I craved death in full desperation. For even if my lungs were to breathe air and my core were to beat faster, they ignored me as if I were a corpse lying on the ocean floor, consumed by creatures of those who settle on the salty waters. They watched me rot; my parents did. Yet, what's unfortunate is that I lived."

Star Stuff
by Tyler Morello

Science says we're born of steam and stardust,
The spoils of supernovae given life.
I have proof that I am made of Starburst,
The simple gesture made my mom a wife.
Father slept in class with one palm open,
My mother placed a pink one in his hand.
I owe my life to that single moment,
A sweet display of love she hadn't planned.
Twelve long years their hearts withstood division,
Together they raised three unruly boys.

Home
by Zara Maralit

Four corners of my home
As if I knew what home was.
Was it the screaming of pain?
The shouting of my mother,
Or was it my dad, abusing her?
I Remember that time
Of Old rain and thunderous clashing
The breaking of pots and pans
To the dishes that crack.
And the monstrous yell,
