Layers of Longing —Shreya Sharma

My beating heart is a drum a thunderous rhythm reciting an epistle of my grief. A concoction of      togetherness & separation. There are layers of longing;    of being seen    and seeing    of a single touch    and being touched    of love    and being loved.

Clouds —Priyanshu Mehta

I look up above and wonder If it’s a sad thing To be clouds To not be able to confide in The Sun, the stars or in crowds To keep changing colours So they can keep celebrating the sky To keep floating around So little birds can fly and dive and enjoy To drain yourselfContinue reading “Clouds —Priyanshu Mehta”

In Between —Danica Aquino

dream (returning hand in hand). – Lucy (Lucy’s Works)

Black feathers as I dreamed,do not look at me; ebony moonthe lust of the body of the shore,as nightmares, in what I’ve neverknown at all, reflect the Artemis moon;the fat, yellow moon; it’s a blood-huntto the red-hills,and a sea,cocktails of sweatdeath at the ground. There is beauty in the death of thingsin imminent dreaming,for it’sContinue reading “dream (returning hand in hand). – Lucy (Lucy’s Works)”
