»Don't Make Me Use Voodoo on You!«

by Bo Lanier, Aug 7, 2016

Well you better treat me good or I will / throw out an ancient Voodoo spell on you / dead men tell no tells especially when / at the bottom of a black water bayou / so you better treat me good, I'm a telling / you if you don't want to end up as / Alligator food and if you don't want me / to cast any Voodoo…  sign in to read more »


»Paybacks Are Hell«

by Bo Lanier, May 4, 2016

Well and Paybacks are hell aren't they / But you can't say you didn't have it / Coming... / Respect me and I'll respect you / Disrespect me and I'll disrespect you / It works both ways... / Don't make it harder on yourself now / Than it has to be...check your facts / Before you go and make yourself look…  sign in to read more »

»Is It Still Africa?«

by Blessing Ntsaluba, Jun 25, 2014

Is It Still Africa, where we preach the word of equality but practice non society? / Where youngsters preach equality towards their elders? / / Respect lost, Elders speechless while we lose our sense of humor. / Is it still Africa where lives are lost and joy is reaped?, / When men walk in fear of their…  sign in to read more »


»Speak of Politics«

by Blessing Ntsaluba, Jun 25, 2014

Speak of politics then you shall be speaking about a nightmare without a shield of protection. / It is humans who are politicians but men still fear. Politics is a definition of government in control, / government who works for the people and not supposed to be feared by the people but men still speak…  sign in to read more »


»Not yet done«

by Bongile Langa, Feb 12, 2014

though I trod with worn muscles, / trapped in my coffin-bodied body, / though the morning no longer have good mornings, / with remnants and remains of my breath / I shall unleash deep, dig that force / though my face is masked with gloom / these scattered pieces are the witness / witnessing resilient soul…  sign in to read more »


»Just Remember«

by Nkululeko Seby Makhoba, Aug 23, 2012

Life is a mixture of sunshine and rain, / Teardrops and laughter, / Pleaser and pain / Remember / There was never a cloud that the sun couldn't shine through / / Let your past be your building block to being a better you / Do not let it become something that'll let you down / Or stop you from being the…  sign in to read more »


»Manchild«

by Bruce Gorton, Apr 23, 2012

Muscular emotion branded in his face / His jaw tense his eyes wild / At his temple the pulse does race / Tongue clipped to all things mild / / To be an adult means to stand / And be at your own command / Just between urge and action / Facing bloody attraction / / The fingers of reason are now broken / Sanity…  sign in to read more »


»Afridi Is king«

by Rabi Ul Islam, Mar 8, 2012

He holds his bat with all his might, / The bowlers bowl with full of fright. / He is the man, he is the king, / He smashes every ball out of the ring. / / Once he entered the pitch by chance, / And changed the game in a single glance. / He is the man depended on hard times, / For he is the king of all the…  sign in to read more »


»Drowned in hate«

by Leo Long, Dec 22, 2011

I felt the stab of pain / From a brother in the hood / One seeking to rise to fame / I thought he understood. / / I taste the bitter in what he said / As he spits the words out / "I wish you were dead" / He just verified my doubt. / / I hear the cries for pity / In our own neighborhood, / Not across the…  sign in to read more »


»Daddy won't be coming home tonight«

by Leo Long, Dec 14, 2011

The steam that rises from the shell / Mists up the scope lens / A steady hand etches a heart / Through which the other bleeds / / A tattered pass absorbs the flood / Inches from the silent hand / That reached beneath his thread bare coat / A white flag not received / / The towel-head becomes another scratch…  sign in to read more »


»Thine Love Hath Healed«

by Mohamed Amer, Dec 11, 2011

In the night a stranger walked by the famous ruins of old / Where folklore stories of horror and pain were told / The moon illuminates the silver light on the statues of gold / He walks between the walls / In the big rooms and halls / Hearing the screams and howls / He slept and he hears those cries / The…  sign in to read more »


»Killing honour«

by Bruce Gorton, May 15, 2011

The rose pink upon her breasts / Her lover upon them rests / To hear her heart beat powerful / In the glow of love she is full / She sings never was the course / Of true love smooth / / For those who loves one of different caste / When pride comes first and love comes last / Speak in poems to raise these…  sign in to read more »


»Beautiful Idiot«

by Zithelo Mnguni, Dec 3, 2010

He looks at me and smiles, I look at him and smile back / I know exactly what he is thinking, I know exactly where he wants to put me / In a corner somewhere, where I can stare at him all starry-eyed and wide-mouthed / Where I can hopelessly fall in love with him while getting played on the side / I…  sign in to read more »


»Meaningless, everything is worthless«

by Gcinile Mdletshe, Apr 23, 2010

All the time that I spend my life mourning for you / All the times when I thought I had lost you / And the moments I thought I'd never see you again / All the while I let my heart believe that you're the one / All the sufferings and pains I've been through / All the emotional blackmail I went through…  sign in to read more »


»the demons of tobacco«

by Remi Bellefleur, Jan 18, 2010

the demons of tobacco, / came over my uncle. / they brought nothing, / but pain and sickness. / / they were nothing, / but spirits of smoke, / deception and anger, / hollows of despair and death. / / they sweep over the earth, / in search of victims, / to torture with their addiction, / fear, confusion,…  sign in to read more »


»The Evil Twin«

by Ashok Kumar Madhunlall, Nov 18, 2009

New eyes flicker open / Good Morning / Yesterday's eyes forgotten / Prayers said just mechanically / He steps out of himself like a shadowy soul / Duplicity / His eyes dart about wickedly / Slits narrow menacingly knowingly cold / Today he shall not be meek but bold / The halo spins and twirls to remind him…  sign in to read more »


»Secrets«

by Jamie Lee Plumley, Oct 9, 2009

I actually thought you loved me / You told me that every day / How was I so blind as not to see / That you could do me wrong in such a way / / I gave you my love, my heart, and soul / But yet you just tossed them aside / I flew over oceans on wings I feared most / Just to find the deadly secrets that you…  sign in to read more »


»Let You Go«

by Jamie Lee Plumley, Oct 8, 2009

Your heart is filled with treason / Turning your back on me / You do not have a clear reason / For why our love can't be / / Your laughs have turned to hate / Your smile is now a frown / Anger from you is what I take / No more up just the down / / People say that true love is real / I actually thought that's…  sign in to read more »


»Hatred's Heart«

by Jamie Lee Plumley, Oct 5, 2009

Frost now covers my once loving heart / Ice replaces my flowing warm core / Hatred is tearing my caring apart / Nothing is the same as it once was before / / All my good intentions have grown sour / My happiness has taken a turn for the worst / My evilness is growing stronger by the hour / My joy is now…  sign in to read more »


»A heart that isn't real«

by Robert Matthews, Sep 17, 2009

you never saw the small things, / even now you still don't see! / of all the things I've given you, / the best of which was me... / / "what have you done now? / whats the point of it?" / you never understood me, / and I'm about to hit... / / rock bottom is my heaven, / and your heart is my hell. / of all the…  sign in to read more »


»Surrounding«

by Almir Sabovic, Apr 13, 2009

Have you ever tried to leave but people keep stopping you for questions? But, most of the time you are busy to do other things like getting to work on time. Or be at a basket-ball practice on time. Do you just want to scream to them to leave you alone but you just might scare them. The main reason…  sign in to read more »


»Regret, Regret«

by April A., Jan 26, 2009

We used to be like Jack and Rose. / "You jump - I jump" - a stupid oath. / But they all failed to figure out / Who had survived and who had drowned. / They all have taken me awry, / They call me she-who-loves-that-guy. / They wait to see how far I'll get, / And I just quit with no regret. / / You fall - I…  sign in to read more »


»Play not with Fire«

by Shimano Patel, Nov 21, 2008

A mindful eye reminder to the hurt / Living within a space by one / Faced in the clutches of love and pain / For the cycle of life unaware to many / / A visitor no more / In a soulful house for many to see / Occupying a neat little time within my soul / Take a moment and pause / I am home- / / Like…  sign in to read more »
