There are monsters under my bed, / I don’t believe they are fake, / As I know their pain as I know mine! / / There are monsters under my bed, / And they are very, very real! / / There is a monster of Love there, / A monster of Lust! / May be a monster of Hatred, / A little one of Greed, Jealousy and / A… read more »

»I will always remember«

by Jamal Abboud, Aug 24, 2018

I will always remember, / to persuade myself to forget, / something of random regret, / for ancient images still linger. / / Distilled from dreams of days, / When I was silent and younger, / creeping dearly to be a stranger, / Thinking I decided novel ways, / / Images those meddle duly in vain, / To bring… read more »

»When you Whisper«

by Jamal Abboud, Aug 24, 2018

The word, the same word you often whisper, / Takes me where sweet dreams murmur, / Analyzed all in the heart, I eagerly listen, / And thoughts of pleasant days never lessen, / And pulses of warm sighs in mind glisten, / Swifter than passionate stormy guesses, / Haunted by the joy the heart never misses,… read more »

I am me! / yes I am. / The owner of my life, / The driver of my life, / The achiever of my goals. / / Yes I am me! / Because am fix, / but I grow, / grow with passion, / the passion of success. / / Yes I am me! / Because I have the right, / the right to retrench and recruit; / Because I own. / Yes I own my life… read more »

»One Night Stand«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Jun 27, 2018

It made sense when / we made love on a cold / night. As we enjoy the simple / pleasures that our bodies give / us, tears slowly pouring out / of yours. As you remember the / forced death of your child. / As you further explain your / dark past about your unborn child. / / I cannot help but question, if I… read more »

»Finding Peace«

by Dorinka Nel, Jun 25, 2018

Where will I find peace... / When everything within me is chaos / When I cannot see how will survive the next day / When nights are cold and lonely / Where will I find peace? / / I go to the mountains and beg / To the ocean to politely ask / To the desert to show my perseverance / Even the lust tropical… read more »
