the shadows that i sleep with
by J K

i think it’s time
to set aside
the notion that i must.
devotion to a trust that i
should, could, or would
if just...

the notion that i am, i can't
i won't, will always be
the stories that i wrote and wove

Words Reflected In A Broken Mirror
by Chloe Foster

I looked into the mirror,
And what I saw looking back,
Was the breaking of a girl,
Her face began to crack.

Her eyes drenched with sorrow,
Her hair a tangled mess,
Her body anxiously shaking,
Wearing a ripped dress.

Betrayal and Enmity
by Seren VonStein

You may give me strife
But you may not have my life--
My body, my sanity,
Uncontrolled in your vanity,
Think you can take what you want
No regards to me
I put up a front
Because you can take my freedom
But you can't take my pride.

She searches for light
by Nichole Lorah

She's awaken by fear.
Dreams become all too real.

She wakes with a scream, gasping for just one normal breath of air.
Sweat dripping down her face.
All she can hear is the sound of her heart beating in her ears.
Chest becomes heavy -- room pitch black.

Nothing to see as she reaches behind her back for her phone. She searches for just a little light.
The fears are real and jerking at her mind. As it wonders and worries it all becomes clear, she forever has to deal with the surreal.

I Must Heal
by Leigh Yah

It all makes sense now
Those nights I deprived myself from sleep
Those days I wondered where and how
And those moments I combat with anxiety.

I lost count of the times I endured infidelity
But that isn't the only case I had to deal with
My vision was clear but I feel like I'm blinded
Too bad, ignoring all the clues became a habit.

Cold hands
by Karla Blom

My church Remains fragmented,
reflecting beyond the room, slumbering within my flesh
My God
rivulets of my worship forge down my heated skin
Dripping,
falling,
onto your subjects below

Holy Nothings answered in cloaks of darkness,
with tears and

Candy
by Author Reinvented

Sweet talk,
Candy lips,
Pull me closer,
Shake those hips.
Eat the Sugar,
Open up,
Make sure not to spill a drop.

You keep feeding me all this Candy,
Talking oh-so-sweetly,

In a Corner there
by Author Reinvented

In a corner there
I see your memory,
A child who could neither fight nor flee,
Hiding from reality

In the circle of your arms
Do you find safety?
Wishing the world around would disappear,
"I'm only safe when it's just me"
