Daily missive for Tuesday the 23rd of October.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Tuesday the 23rd of October.

Does it need to have meaning
What does it matter
Who benefits
When there is no such thing
As nothing
Nor even something
More or less, as may lie
Under the sun
Anymore than
This or that, maybe
It would help
To follow the trail
Of a snail
Knowing it will suffer
From overexposure
Unless it finds shelter
A little shade with moisture
A little greenery
Perhaps there is meaning
In the playful
Exploits of a puppy
Rolling with a ball
Pawing, gnawing
Until it is pushed too far
Beneath the sofa
The look on her face
Brow wrinkled
Beyond her years
What do you expect
From words derived from
The pages of a past life
Barely remembered
Is that really a question
Worthy of consideration
When every breath
We take
Has been borrowed
From out of the blue
A little pinch here
A wee peck there
Must it mean something
As the sun travels according
To a universal law
Whilst worlds
Revolve around it
In synchronous concordance
There is a certain lack
Of romance in truth
Unless heartfelt,
Perhaps that is meaning enough
To be getting on with.

Age doesn’t count.. Only love does ~by Nutan Sarawagi


 

 

Age doesn’t count.. Only love does
***** *********

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, outdoor

my wondrous heart
in you I pound
in you to love
and resound
growing to your sound
younger as I count
my age with you
to feel paramount
for you are my love
that knows no bounds
love me forever
You’re mine

age doesn’t count
On life’s merry go round
Count me in
I just forgot my count
in your love
turning around
in it to abound
My age to count

LIGHT FROM DARKNESS~by Saroj K Padhi


 

 

LIGHT FROM DARKNESS

Image may contain: 1 person

Which dark are you talking about
That gave you knowledge of light ?

Is it the dark behind the bushes of low heights
Where glow worms celebrate the festival of lights
Without fireworks
Or emitting any poisonous gases;
Kissing the silken tresses of darkness
With lips wet from fresh dips into the river’s
Tremulous nakedness
Aroused to glowing curves
Under the Moon’s new madness ?

Or is it the protective dark behind her tresses
Where the evening lamp of devotion is kept burning
Before Goddess Brindabati this world with eternal love blesses ?

Or is it the dark behind her eye-lashes
Where my heart burns in expectation of a love
That would never splinter into small pieces ?

C.R: @ Saroj K. Padhi

WILL YOU BE THE ONE~by Nalini Starr


 

 

WILL YOU BE THE ONE

Will you be the one
To give me that loving I never had before
Will you be the one
To make me come back for more
Will you be the one
To satisfy me completely
And make my passion soar
Will you be the one
To have me craving more
Will you be the one
To pleasure me so
And make my juices flow
Will you be the one
To make my lust rise
And appease that hunger
Between my thighs
Will you be the one
To make my fantasies come true
And do whatever I ask of you
Will you be able to
Will you be the one
To unleash my dark desires
And let them soar
Will you be the one
To open that door
Will you be the one
To take me to the edge and beyond
And blow my mind
Will you be the one?

” SEA OF LOVE ” ~by Martin Gedge


 

 

POEM ” SEA OF LOVE ” by martin gedge

No automatic alt text available.

Wrapped up in this little ship
a letter to my bride
a tucked in note addressed to float
a boat against the tide
through the waves upon the sea
across the great divide
a message of sweet love I send to you
it’s started on the 4th of July
just me against the shore
I vowed to show my deepest heart
in lengths forever more
just how much that you mean to me
and how true to the core
that I would sail this current ocean blue
and in this pocket I have sent
a token on a string
a lured speck that would reflect
a hook that wears a ring
and if by chance the fishies dance
to make baby sing
then deep inside it’s truly meant to be
and still there waits the other side
that beats this boyish heart
we may be far but wish the star
ours world will never apart
we always seem to find our way
that lights our path through dark
and sails your little ship right back to me…

“Plastic”~by Arcassin Burnham


 

 

“Plastic”

by Arcassin Burnham

My head hurts, 
The beds shaking,
I’m breathing heavy,
Hot in this room,
the birds are singing,
I’m keeping it steady,
looking at attention to detail..
the peace is gone,
everyone’s yelling,
fights breaking out,
still hot as hell,
nothing to do,
but get away from this,
as long as there is nothing to retell..

and I can’t stress this enough,
why is my life just so tough,
all I want is beauty in a plastic red cup,
I might as well just give everything up,
if you could take away the stress,
that’ll be great,
but if you make it worse through life as a cheapskate,
Don’t talk to me,
Don’t talk to me,

My head hurts,
The beds shaking,
I’m breathing heavy,
Hot in this room,
the birds are singing,
I’m keeping it steady,
looking at attention to detail..
the peace is gone,
everyone’s yelling,
fights breaking out,
still hot as hell,
nothing to do,
but get away from this,
as long as there is nothing to retell.

Sitting by the Sea~by Jeremy J Croucher


 

 

Sitting by the Sea

I’ve sat by the sea in Croatia
I’ve set by the sea in Spain
I’ve sat by the sea in Turkey and Greece
but it’s never quite been the same

I’ve sat by the sea in Gibraltar
I’ve sat by the sea in France
I’ve sat by the sea in Montenegro and Crete
but it’s always like taking a chance

For when I sat by the sea here in Sussex
there’s no asking for anything more
As it excludes a peace that makes my soul shine
by Southern England’s home shore

BLUE LANDING~by Renáta Császár


 

 

BLUE LANDING
by Renáta Császár

Image may contain: food

I build my sky
from the blue
trembling on the wings of
that butterfly
and feel the blood on my finger

just the bush
hawthorn of course
glittering with berries
ripe ones
so I am eating them
for breakfast
lingering in the fragrance of autumn
in the blue of dew

which wakes me up
pulls me to the clouds
like a rolling fog
blue in spinning

taking me
into
the tears of silence
on the twigs

Renáta Császár – 22/10/2018

Shall i bow to your feet~by Ndura Mguni


 

 

Shall i bow to your feet

Shall i bow to your feet
and expose my heart to you,
neither kiss the soil
to portray the truth in me,
knowing you will have mercy
on my lost heart
and cuddle it’s with
everlasting love.

Shall i give you my last breath
knowing you will heal
the gushes in my heart,
and fill it with
purely everlasting joy.

Shall i pull a trigger
to stop the heart that
loves you more,
Let me be!

Echo~by Eliot Ravenwood


 

 

Echo

The air thick, by the dying fire

Somehow, smelled of moments lost
Memories ablaze in a new desire
To keep the echo that mattered most
The lake beneath held secrets old
Of life, and death, and the darkness deep
A monstrous beauty bound in the cold
Of a frozen night, in the midnight’s keep
A flame alive in the dead of night
That I never had the courage to seek
Corrupted by fear, blinded by the light
My heart knew a secret, my tongue could never speak
The forest asleep, in a fading thought
My eyes amber in the burning light
Chronicling the silent battle I fought
Caught up in the black and white
But I had secrets, I had to keep
Fears I knew, I never could face
The nightmares embedded in my sleep
That tonight, I shall embrace…
