grief, heartbroken, nostalgia, silence,
by Rizwan Saleem |
Oh hearken to me lord!
I grow tired and weary
I can carry my battles no more
I am no holy man
No saint that I can bear this with fortitude
I seek no fortune from you
Nor does the love of this world tempt me
I long for how things used to be
My knees grazed by my lost supplications
I weep only for my wasted days
by Julie Forbush |
life, love, nature, people, social,
would it be awkward to tell you
how the whole world
smells like petroleum jelly
or that the latex on my fingers
seems never to wear off
that after a while
they're all the same
one more mark
in a sea of the willing
if you offer the right look,
the most brittle of vows
all for a small recompense
that's never enough
it's more than an hour
in the company of hands
that offer no shelter

Rebuke me not in anger,
Nor discipline in fury.
Be gracious unto me, O LORD,
I’m wasting here; please hurry!
My bones lament their troubles;
My soul is anxious too.
But you, O LORD - how long
Till I’m returned to you?
Save me for your splendid name,
Your staunch, unswerving love,
For death has no remembrance
From Sheol of You above.
I’m wearied from my moaning,
I flood my bed with tears.
My eyes are red because of grief;
I’m weak from all my fears.
Depart from me, you evil ones;
The LORD has heard my cries.
My supplications reach His ear,
To where He sits on high.
(From Psalm 6)
by Mari Bond |
It 's time !
To crack you !
Erected yesterday - I'm crumbling porcelain .
The surface of the statue shimmers
in supplications ,
But my hand is already drowning
in sacrificial flowers.

When YOU lasso the moon; Swing cross the Universe, Entered our Lives
With an Eternal Pen, cross the Autumnal Colors of the Evening SKY
