“A Portrait of Time,” by Tyler J.
relics of unseen
litter the sands—
“Eye and Hand,” by Tyler J.
Without your eyes
to guide my mind,
I trample blind;
I cannot find out
the stars anymore,
“When Sky Falls,” by Tyler J.
The hushed smell of the rain
reaches out with shiny hands
and pats gently at the windowpane.
God has been divorced.
“Farewell,” by Tyler J.
Dedicated to all those melancholic folks
who have fishhooks in their hearts,
and to Time, who heals all.
Goodbye forever, and farewell.
The tides have changed and my boat
has caught the wrong wave.
“Whoever I Please,” by Téa S.
I am not a whore
I am a woman
Whoever I want to be
In clothes that make me feel good
Clothes that I think look good
And clothes that I enjoy
I was not raised with the idea that:
If you wear short shorts
You’re a skank
Because trust me, honey
The only one in bed with me is
“this moment,” by Iris
Sometimes it’s only a moment
Of when I’m away from the rest of the world
That I have that epiphany;
The thought that took years to unfold,
For me to grasp, to understand,
To thank God for. Read more…
“These Rooms,” by Tyler J.
Listen to the sound of the waves
as they billow against the cliffs,
and, with the wind in our hair,
follow me into the house of memory…
“guardian angel,” by Iris
There’s a guardian angel out there who loves me
Because she knows as soon as I let you open my mouth
My inner demons will come rolling out
In forms of clinging, long-awaited affection
“Perfection”; I need you most Read more…
A Love Song by Tyler J.
The stars turn in a sky made out of charcoal;
their eyes glitter on the rippling surface of the pond
like pieces of shaven crystalline glass,
and as the wind makes the trees dance,
at the edge of this world and on the boundary of another,
I think of you.
I hold words behind my eyes, they give me sense;
with these words I tune the clockwork of this moment.
So let me tell you something, with these words that know me,
so that you may see the color of my heart.
