»Mary King's Close«

by Bo Lanier, Dec 9, 2016

Underground spillover of sickness / and the stench of death... / men, women and children confined / and condemned, condemned to suffer / even after the hour glass has ran out / of time, there is an un-natural coldness / down the long and winding dark halls / you can still hear their screams / reverberating… read more »

»My big girl panties«

by Pride Mguli, Dec 9, 2016

I put them on for you, / for I had had enough of you. / Your belittling, demeaning and condescending heart / had torn mine into two - / hate and hate in abundance. / / My big girl panties / felt comfortable and fitting / even though I hadn't tried them on before. / It's as though mama sowed them for me… read more »

»My Pain«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Dec 5, 2016

The torment from within is / Unbearable, words I say / Mean nothing, my actions / Are worthless, my emotions / Intoxicated by anger, I feel / My heart bleed, I am alone / In this abyss, with all the hope / I put to the ones I love, but / I ask myself why they hate me. / Even though I cry on my knees, / I… read more »

»The Black Demon«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Dec 5, 2016

Deceived by its evil / Ways, I walk alone in / A shallow grave, hallucinations / Of angels guiding me to heaven, / But alas... / The sight of this creature / Obstructs my path, its beauty both / Blessing and a curse, with none of / My emotions of fear rehearsed, / For my final performance I take / A bow,… read more »

»Nostalgia and sex from extraordinary heights«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Dec 5, 2016

Looking into your eyes as / My insecurities fade away, our / Nudity beautiful in every way, the glorious / Moment you simply took my breath away. / Time gave us this moment with open hands, / My heart and penis are erect as you open / Your legs to the destiny that awaits us. / Your hands are caressing my… read more »

»The World Unseen«

by Bo Lanier, Dec 5, 2016

Well there are many, many / portals and gateways from / this world of the living to / the WORLD UNSEEN / where demons and ghosts / walk among us not only / in the night but in the / daytime too... / Could be they've attached / themselves to you just / because they find you some / kind of an amusing new / kind… read more »

»My one and only«

by Natnael Genene, Dec 5, 2016

forces / of nature / time cant be controlled / tick tok / time flowed by / didn't think its so close / for you to leave me all alone / death took you away / for you to never return / I cried and cried / but the pain wont come out / I promise you / I will come to visit your grave / even when I am old and grumpy… read more »

»Men of Letters«

by Bo Lanier, Dec 5, 2016

MEN OF LETTERS is a secret underground / society, some say they've been around since / the 1930's, some say they go all the way / back to the Knight Templars, all I know is / that they still exist today but don't ask me / how I know 'cuz I was sworn to secrecy but / I will tell you what I can without… read more »

»Another Gospel«

by Buduziri Owhonda, Dec 5, 2016

may god forgive my impertinence / as it is no fault of mine / only this freedom that he's given me / it made me do this / that I tell it as it's been: / / intact were our abilities as we were led / on empty stomachs and unkempt visages / purging our souls of what sanity is left / and looking on the brethren… read more »


by Bo Lanier, Dec 1, 2016

Well and you are a freedom / lover if anything so archer / of my dreams go on and / spread your wings as / lightning goes to the sky in / the blink of an eye you / disappear again, born of the / wind...Sagittarius carefree / and adventurous, traveling / heavenly roads and now / only God knows where / you are… read more »
