Gone Fishin'
by Delmar Pepper

I've finished life's chores assigned to me,
So put me on a boat headed out to sea.
Please send along my fishing pole
For I've been invited to the fishin' hole.

Where every day is a day to fish,
To fill your heart with every wish.
Don't worry, or feel sad for me,
I'm fishin' with the Master of the sea.

my decay
by imi dia

my soul empty
hollow
like my casket
awaiting my presence
for my body to lay
for the space to fill
for my heart to sway

the countdown continues
carries on in dismay

Mariana
by Alfred Lord Tennyson

WITH BLACKEST moss the flower-plots
Were thickly crusted, one and all:
The rusted nails fell from the knots
That held the pear to the gable-wall.
The broken sheds look'd sad and strange:
Unlifted was the clinking latch;
Weeded and worn the ancient thatch
Upon the lonely moated grange.
She only said, "My life is dreary,
He cometh not," she said;

Sad Knight
by Civl 12346

What would thou think of me tying rope to the tree?
With every strike mine own sword stabs back at me.
Perhaps I will let mine enemy pierce me,
For I can go on no longer.
Each day I sharpen and shine my blade.
And each day in its reflection I see myself fade.
If only the Fades could snip mine tarnished thread
And leave me strewn among the field with the other soldiers lying dead.

I look to the heavens; may He guide me.

A Lover's Complaint
by William Shakespeare

FROM off a hill whose concave womb reworded
A plaintful story from a sistering vale,
My spirits to attend this double voice accorded,
And down I laid to list the sad-tuned tale;
Ere long espied a fickle maid full pale,
Tearing of papers, breaking rings a-twain,
Storming her world with sorrow's wind and rain.

Upon her head a platted hive of straw,
Which fortified her visage from the sun,

Daphne holds the chase
by Hadia Sadiq

Daphne holds the chase

romeo, did you know that you love me
with such sincerity that it makes me sick?

so, will you love me still if i tell you that
my heart does not belong to you but belongs,

rather, to the fascist with his boot on my
neck? you kiss my neck like you are worshipping

Mirrors of churning reflection
by Daniel Ryan Cotler

In the mirror's churning reflection, I'd gaze,
A constant distortion, a bewildering haze,
My true self obscured, by the narcissistic game,
A battle within, for my identity's name.

The mirror would twist, my image it'd bend,
As the projections took hold, a relentless trend,
I knew I was good, with a heart that was kind,
But the mirror showed a monster, a distorted bind.

depressed
by abbagail hall

The darkness creeps
Slipping into my veins
Growing roots
That sink deeper by the day

No joy
Only sorrow
Sorrow and regret
I can't shake it away
