Waiting On The Mayflower
by Evie Shockley

i. august 1619

arrived in a boat, named
and unnamed, twenty, pirated

away from a portuguese
slaver, traded for victuals.

drowned in this land of fresh,
volatile clearings and folk

by Victoria Brown

Your call is very important to us.
Please hold while we connect you to the next available agent.


The hold music buzzes in my ears.
The poor attempt at soft jazz,
the wretched sounds of clarinet worming their way into my brain.


All of our agents are busy at this time.

CHAND
by Ganesavi Gupta

Ruh ne gawahi to nhi di pr 'Chand' mera samjh gya, is suni si raat me wo akela hi nikl gaya...

Khoff to badalo ka tha ki khi chupa na le,
meri mnjil Ko mujhse chura na le.
Pr Chahat itni gehri thi ki main bhi ruki nhi,
Deepak lekr dhundhne usko nikl padi...

Aur phir kya, mnjil tha wo mera mil gya "pr phir dheere se Suraj nikal Gaya..."

ते ना मला उमजले ना तुला समजले
by Apurva Phulari

तेव्हा होता वारा सुटलेला
आणि धरती तृप्त झालेली
गगनात खळबळ उडालेली
ते ना मला उमजले ना तुला समजले!

फक्त एकच डाव खेळायचा होता
आणि तोच जिंकायचा होता
पण तुझ्या विरूद्ध खेळायचा होता
मी जिंकूनही हारले आणि तू हारुनही जिंकला
ते ना मला उमजले ना तुला समजले!!

A Chase After Love - 02

Days passed,
Months passed,
Years of waiting-

For someone might
Turn up a day.

Like a pomegranate
In the mountains high
I had been waiting,

Take All The Time You Need - December 9th, 2023
by Gilligan Snolepart

Take all the time you need
But, if you can, don't be too long
Decide the Life you’ll have
And the Path you'll walk
I get that it's about you
Not anyone or anything else
And it is!

But if it has us two on it
I want to see it

Another day passes by
by Mayank Nirala

Still waiting
It feels forever, Since you crossed by me;

My heart longs, to be altered in a way
You made me skip a beat;

I sit aside, eyes waiting
but i procure none i crave;

Each second feels protracted

In Concert
by Seren VonStein

What is the point of reaching out
When you don't want to reach?
I felt bereft of your presence,
An awning between us so wide
It would never be breached.

You leave,
You return,
Leave once more,
Only to return another time.
