Last Day- Hina Takagi - I look around the room, sighing. Feeling the cool evening breeze blowing. A flower makes a curtsy quietly. Knowing nothing but my face only. Starched white sheet, and hard pillow. The music and light were mellow. Found a small calendar in corner. November 16th, nothing happened, nothing new. It was just an ordinary day. But … Continue reading Last Day- Hina Takagi
who we used to be- by Anonymous - Surely there was a time where my heart belonged to the gentle lulls of the ocean tides lapping on moonlit shores; surely there was a moment where I longed to be wrapped in the shroud of night’s darkness there next to you. Surely there were days where my crestfallen eyes and sunken cheeks grew rosy … Continue reading who we used to be- by Anonymous
Pendulum by Anonymous - My mind does a hundred somersaults Fine thoughts then I crumble from a hundred summer faults Berate myself with dumb assaults Brought back to fears that come from vaults Submerge my head in memory ignore the stings of wounds it salts Return to elation feels more than just vacation until I hear the wrong song … Continue reading Pendulum by Anonymous
Nevermore by Owen Fletcher - Softly, quickly the heather climbs the hills rolling green, the moors, the forests stretching, growing Nevermore seen The fire leapt the metal clanged burning and ashes, smothering the green Nevermore seen across the world across the land the heather no longer creeps, over the hills no longer green Nevermore Neverseen Illustration by Quinten Freeman
Manifest Destiny by Anonymous - Glossy green leaves and vivid birds afloat, The rainforest gives the sweet songs of life. The crystal clear water without a boat, The habitat living without a strife. A grove of trees with sweet fruits a blooming, The bugs float to the tender buds of May. Danger is near, man’s shadow is looming… The men … Continue reading Manifest Destiny by Anonymous

hi- Anonymous - if I see you from afar i automatically assume you don’t want to talk to me unless you wave or say hello everytime you go in for a high five it’s like i’m dripping and clinging on for dear life to an anchor pulled up out of the murky deep loneliness that constantly presses in … Continue reading hi- Anonymous
“Some Days…” by Seowoo Lee - Whiteboards and chalkboards, equality, freedom Creativity, constellations, so much more to explore, Perfection, nobody can achieve it Dreams, cats, literature, and architecture Positive, absence, existence, negative, lies Consistent arguments, yet everlasting friendship Diseases, some cured, others not Feelings; sadness, happiness, jealousy and anger Colors, logic, God, family Day, night, differences Some days I’m here, other … Continue reading “Some Days…” by Seowoo Lee
“Red Cup Blue Cup” by Calvin Dunbar and Alex Olson - Red Cup, Blue Cup Yellow Cup and Pink When you’re done drinking Put it in the sink. Coffee, Water, Juice or Tea. Drink too much, And you might have to pee. Donuts and Cakes Cookies and pies, Find you a yam And chef up some fries. And if you’re still hungry That is a lie, … Continue reading “Red Cup Blue Cup” by Calvin Dunbar and Alex Olson
