Walking Forward
by Greg M Cole

Walking Forward
I don't want to walk backwards through life,
Second guessing what might have been;
What could have been,
What would have been,
What should have been.
Beautiful decisions, half-followed;
Meaningful words, half-said;
Impactful actions, half-done;
Left behind to die.

Mirrors
by Bel P.

I hate looking in mirrors
I don't like what I see.
They say I have a pretty face
They say that they love me

I'm lost to my reflection
when I practice how I look
I've got to get my smile right
or else I'll be mistook

desert dreams
by Sarah A

i can’t stop dreaming of the desert; penchants of empty spaces and rare faces
no destination in mind i just drive

i can’t stop dancing in between
the middle of everyone i meet;
i never leave the door open
and so no one ever peeks

i don’t know what i am
or where i’m going

Remember me
by Sara Brull

Remember me as the morning birds start to call
Remember the nights that turned into mornings at parties, festivals and all
Remember me in the rich smell of coffee
Remember me as the radio plays that song from a time we had it all
Remember me as the ocean laps the shore
Remember me also as the ocean swells and writhes with a storm
Remember me on a still hot sunny day
Remember me in daisy chains at play
Remember me when you hit the bars and clubs
Remember me in a ice cream sundae

The dress
by Robert Rittel

In an imaginary world where believe is everything,
there existed a dress of a magic perception,
for any occasion or who you meet it changes to its occasion.
Like the individual feeling you sense in that circumstance,
giving the eye of the beholder a dress of perceptive romance.
The dress always in perfect fit and accessories included,
the soul knows that she is perfect and the dress has to reveal it.
But as the soul matures only by experience,
the dress struggles with making perfect decisions.
The compromised dress in the wrong place,

alone and happy
by Miki Vermeulen

I cannot be alone,
And I cannot be bored.
Does that mean I like people's company?
Or am I just good at faking a smile,
And getting things done?

People say I have the best smile,
But is it real?
Am I really happy?
Or do I just lie to everyone?

Thoughts from a Salt Shaker
by V Wanderlust

I know not which month the what if game began

The air was warm when it reached finality

Backward reaching I missed a certain bit of awareness

My young mind unable to rest the ball rolling

A handful of moments frozen within me

A Poets View
by Jesus Betancourt

Poetry is a mirror reflecting the poets soul
Visually impossible to see
Composing a poem has a goal
To expose the poets visibility
