Stretches of Silence, Poetry by Ivina Emmanuel

Genre: Rhyme, Relationship

 With dewy-eyed dragged on
With my gaze upon
Glances brighter as the day
I caught her soul entwined in the web
But lack what to say, like a play

Even with this swift communion if a babe
Entangled in the slying- coyness
I still let her feel the beat my shyness
Trapped in the stillness of her eye

But not to let go for long
Holding onto parts rendered undone
In our vacant gazes towards the rising sun
Made more severe by the sudden bright ray shone

I know she could melt a heart as snow,
Bring me the stars if feelings were made to show
Her heart always as pure as gold
Yet, let her vanished into her fold

Would she ever feel my absence?
Would I ever catch glimpses of her presence?
Oh, would she ever cross this path again?
For I have spent years hoping forever in the rain in vain.

Spirit of a Stallion, Poetry by James Williamson

 A wandering spirit lives inside me,
no board or brick may be my home.
With a roving planetary soul so free,
through this world I will forever roam.

Consisting of a two stallion band,
with only me and my lack of trust.
Remaining free from tag or brand,
I’m followed only by clouds of dust.

My shadow is my jealous mistress,
yet this world is my silent wife.
When the time comes in this abyss,
she will take my lonesome life.

Until then I will drink from the sea,
upon the moons reflective shore,
and gaze into oceans of black.
The world my heart broke free,
and when it beats for her no more,
she will come submerge it back.

Between belonging and freedom,
It seems I chose the latter.
With a restless soul within me,
forever running until I ache.
A thousand times in this life,
my brittle heart shall shatter.
Yet solid remains my spirit,
that no one can ever break.
