These Violent Delights Have Violent Ends by Adrienne Elaine Shaw

Winner of the Weaver’s Knot Award for Poetry Forever is a concept It is a word which means little, For it is beyond our reach Nothing lasts forever Not the sun Not the moon Not the air we breathe So swear not by these changing, ending things. The body decays; Swear to me not by [...]

Tell Tale Fruit by Benjamin Cable

In the dark corner of my mind resides, obscure to all outside, a forest of anguish in which I hide.  Deep within this twisted place is a house; a dismal space.  Here I practice the darkest arts, deep within the most hidden parts. In the garden, demons sow their depraved seed that in time bears [...]

Summer Beach by Tiffany Delk

Each summer the beach calls my name The sound of the waves clashing together And the feel of the sand between my toes Is what I think of, while I pack my suitcase that looks like a whale   The whole family loads up the truck And heads off in the early morning sunset A [...]

Smoke Signals by Tena Pair

Dreams give us depth, Make us wonder, Create questions; create us. Some are as detailed as feathers on an angel’s wing. Many, easy to separate the fiction. Others mysterious mind games. The torturous dream, Frightens, but exhilarates, Endures like a never ending chronicle. Bright, tall flames reach long fingers to the heavens. Frantic moments, blood [...]

Lady of Grace by Julie Holder

As you pass by the window, Of a building that has been long vacant, Something unusual catches your eye. Curious, you take a step back, To see what’s inside. To your great surprise, Where ugly gray walls once stood, There was now a room of gleaming white, Lanterns and bunting of the same brilliance hang [...]

In the Month of June – A Ballad for Corey and Cory by Skyla Dover

The pain speared throughout my body Like a dagger rapidly slicing away. All they needed was a new hobby, What was once a bright future starts to stray. I remember first hearing the horrid news, the exact spot When all my emotions started breaking down I could only fall to my knees in a deserted [...]

And The Thunder Rolls by Diane Beaver

Based on the song by Garth Brooks   Angels sing the rainstorm songs. Angry winds travel through the treetops. The animals run for cover from the furious approaching fury. And the thunder rolls.   Lightning flashes like the twinkling of a star. Rain pours from the heavens above. Dark, angry clouds mask the skies. And [...]
