The Midnight heat will keep you Feeling secure in the the darkness No awareness of what’s to come That one living carcass Thousands of people in this foreign town But there’s soon to be one less Each person for themselves … Continue reading

A Footnote to Shelley’s ‘Ozymandias’ By Parveen Talpur

The Desert Woman I remember, Within the loose circle of a veil A face strong, striking and pale Bearing a Sphinx-like riddle Its expression stoic, features intriguing Chiseled sharply by piercing winds Tanned darkly by the blazing sun It called … Continue reading

Read Poetry: Date Nights, by Jei Nacalaban JP

Read Poetry: “Sleep No More”, by Kim Michelle Ross

Sleep evermore my love, Your betraying lies, Unhinged and broke my heart. It was the blackest day, At the brightest hour, When my love finally soured. Your despairing pleas, Failed to sway my forgiveness. Bang, went the gun, it had … Continue reading

Read Poetry: OUCH!, by Andrianne Philippou

Ouch…!     This comes as no surprise, you see  I always felt this had to be.  There is a certain path you know,  a way to learn, a way to grow.  For here the road is split in two,  one track for me, and one for you.    So as I walk, my steps unsure,  I stumble slightly, sometimes fall.  And as I struggle hard to stand  and carry on without your hand,  I realise that I’m doing fine.  Horizons beckon, the sun still shines.  The rainbow hasn’t lost its colour,  and so what if the poppy’s pallor  needs a little extra spark, to stir the   meadow or the park?    I know that I will find my way  (despite the tears that make me stray),  by daring to believe my dream;   the trickle of a mountain stream  that flows, cascading to the sea  and finds release, as so will we…    I’m holding on to all that’s real;   the way you laugh, the way you feel,  the way we share a thought, our passion,  a sense that this is beyond fashion.  For how else can you touch me quite,   and know my soul, and fit so right?    For me, this journey holds no fear.  So please, unlock your heart, my dear…       © Andrianne Philippou –  26th April 2008   … Continue reading
