Thoughts on Arcite and Palamon by Helena Camilleri

“Of lover in jail and lover free as air. I cannot tell you which had most to bear.” But what is lover free as air with love never returned? A prisoner still, left concerned about what if and what could have been, longing for a […]

A Question of When, Not If by Gabriel Lia

A Question of When, Not If by Gabriel Lia

When books smell of smoke, When poetry mutes When silence disturbs When sweets bitter When stargazing ends When countryside is put aside When flowers become perfume When all we do is consume When acting is life When prayer is ritual When gifts are mandatory When […]

Shakespearean Couplet by Sarah Zammit Munro

Shakespearean Couplet by Sarah Zammit Munro

Their love was based on nothing more than two genuine souls linked together through art, spark ignited through words, poetry shared from one breath to the other.   They were the couple from next door, you know, the kind of couple everyone assumed would end […]

Honey Eyes by Sarah Zammit Munro

Honey Eyes by Sarah Zammit Munro

I write best when I’m falling in love or falling out of it. I write best when I’m falling. When I was broken, when I was head over heels; When I was overwhelmed, When my heart tossed and turned in the space of in-between; When […]

Fearless Firework by Gabriel Lia

Normality sleep! Liquid love arise! Roll on the carpet sweet taste of text unearthed scrolls breathing eating, hungry hugs for travel rides; what a stride blazing chocolate, melting stars basketball beer bubbling Fearless Firework blended in flowers floundering bound, peaceful sound mind, body, expect soul […]

The Changing of the Seasons by Michaela Demicoli

The Changing of the Seasons by Michaela Demicoli

That blooming May field had been a raging backdrop of pure colour mingling with existence, featuring layer upon layer of pigmented hyacinths and prettier peonies.   This grieving November field indeed sees grave stagnation which brims with tactless incongruity. An exodus of dampened hearts must […]

My Heart by Anonymous

My Heart by Anonymous

My Heart is expectant, but never gets what feels due what should be next.   My Heart is hopeful, and never wavers, till it gets bad, then it quavers.   When will it take for me to feel like it’s getting good and actually real. […]

No Clouds in Sight by Anonymous

My day was bright, no clouds in sight. Everything warm and blue, I even played with my kite.   I thought your sky was also blue, but you first had some dew, then it started raining and ruined your view.   The temperature was rising […]

June 25 by Kathryn Bianco

Lying on bed, sheet crushes my shape. I don’t want a sheet. Even though the air is fresh.   I am the only warmth within these walls. I breathe out that smoke, that once amused me; A merciless reminder. The moisture escaping my mouth, still […]

I Know by Alexander G. Lewis

I Know by Alexander G. Lewis

The Flames by Alexander G. Lewis

The Flames by Alexander G. Lewis

Burning red flames engulf the room, Melting my skin so much. My rock hard body; longing for yours, Before it’s far gone, with every touch. Our hands now moulding each other like clay, Sparks fly, walls fall, glass shatters, clothes tear. One hand moves up: […]

The Two-Faced Demon That is Love by Jelina Georgieva

The Two-Faced Demon That is Love by Jelina Georgieva

These feelings that won’t die, in my heart from the inside, trying to break free they just keep on tearing me apart. Should I let them be? I fear the unknown danger that is love, it burns my heart and soul to ashes. Might it […]

An Inappropriate Poem for my Best Friend by Tilly

You make me feel, like I’m crashing Into tide after tide of waves: And every hit makes me weaker, But leaves me wanting more. You make me feel, like I’m made of stars Trying hard to escape my skin And fly back into the sky, […]
