»Hello Stranger«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Oct 24, 2016

I saw you from a distance stranger, / The mirage shaping your body and / Giving you the posture of a masculine / Warrior. / / I tried stopping you to have a decent / Conversation but the purpose of your / Journey made you impatient. As you / Slowly pull out a bandanna from your / Pocket and wrap it around… read more »

South Atlantic an ancient and / ominous death trap awaits unexpecting / ships and planes and tonight it has / claimed many lives again...well it is a / mystery that most likely will remain / unexplained buried deep in sin...however / I have heard it's the remnants of Atlantis / and a great and powerful… read more »

Oh and as the sun begins to set I come alive / The moon comes curling around the mountains / Like a blue lamp in a dusty pink sky... / I step into the velvet of the night that I love / In my red velvet cape and black gloves, still carrying / A torch for some distant past ancient love and / As the wind… read more »

»What Might Have Been«

by Richard Thomas, Oct 22, 2016

As we age we regret words of anger and spite / That were heard and remembered and can't be unsaid. / The remarks we thought clever or proved we were right / That resulted in losses of friendships instead. / / All the heartbreaks that came from suspicion and doubt, / The betrayals and hurts we refused to… read more »

»Ghost Town«

Standing in the among the ruins of what / Used to be a thriving little gold fever town / I swore I heard music and laughter coming / From the half-moon saloon, I walked around / But nobody could be found still I could of / Sworn I just saw a cowboy walk chasing / An Apache in a cloud of dust well I felt a… read more »

»Impulsion De La Folie (Insanity Impulse)«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Oct 20, 2016

The World looking at me with disgust / And evil eyes. The social awkwardness caused / By seeking something greater than I or the / Great I AM. The potential to seek is trapped / In me like a caged animal longing to be / Set free. / The enemy trying to keep me on a / Leash, the more I resist the harder the… read more »

»Mental Re-flux Infusion (Bi-Polar free verse)«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Oct 20, 2016

The mind wondering off to distant space, / The body feeling small and thin like / A shoe lace, the World becoming difficult / To understand, my heart withdraws and it / Becomes a cold place. / My highest thoughts of the Universe / Reach its pinnacle but the Universe / Having thoughts about me is not… read more »

by Sbulelo Sbonelo Mahlangu, Oct 18, 2016

Between those cracks of stone, / Lies what was a heart. / With those tears to wipe its existence! / That river will never be filled! / Those pieces will never again meet!… read more »

»For Your Love (I long for you)«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Oct 18, 2016

Standing under the tree / Kissed by autumn as the / Leaves braze our faces, / As we make solemn promises / Of sharing eternity together. / The memories we have and / Share are written in the sands / Of time. As we grow in love each day, / We are reaching our prime. / As cupid points his arrow and / Shoots… read more »

Listening to the sound / Of the breeze that directs / The movement of the leaves. / Every sound my body makes / I can hear it! / / Sitting alone in a dark / Corner wondering if I / Fear being alone or left alone. / The conversations that are loud / In my head are making me lose / My sanity of the real world… read more »
