Amaranthine
by L Spirit
Old house, alive with memoriesin dust motes and misty silhouettes mementos hang, old photographsa grandfather clock seems to chimesomewhere down abandoned hallwaysPaint once bright, now peelingivy winding banisters and windowpaneporch swing briefly sways in the wind...as if an unseen foot has set it free...and time ticks on around the placeFading shadows slink toward eveningdarkness wraps the…

‘Friendly Nations’
by JSeulingD
Established nations crumbled, as Envy got jealous. Insecurity grew anxious as we stared at girls and fellas. Trust was molested; there was no faith in the pair. The subconscious woke up, only to dream what wasn’t there. We bombed neighboring nations, buildings were burned in vain, because of hallucinations that we couldn’t explain. Our bond was fragmented, as we fragged our…

lingering thoughts, broken hearts
by gtilson
My thoughts are lingering in a past I cannot forgetTwo souls lurking in the shadows find each other and became one silhouetteTwin flames drawn together like moths to the light, unable to resist, even with all of their mightTwo people who were meant to find each other on this twisted path of life,Once found, all…

A Ballad Prompted: Grey Devotion
by JustJoAngus2
 Lying in porpoise wait, breaths foggy and whisperingTortured touching, chapped lips moving- a cloudy, tactile achePewtered paces and glides- demystifying over-ached branchesAnchored arching and bucking- overflowing deep, smoky lake Such grey torture of shadowed release, I rememberThe iron bulge and throb of then ashen- now, engorged veins A myriad of hues: charcoal, graphite, pebbled and silveryIron-clad intensity,…
