love and lost
by Rick Stassi
Poor heart’s encompassed consternation,
Ethereal apathy razed.
Time again for calm cessation,
With reverence patience is praised.
Predilection for unearthliness,
Condemnation of anything less,
Passion’s remembrance hazed.

Costing him more than aches and pain

Humility reigns, taxing venturous brain.

Deserving
by Rhona McFerran
“I deserve to be happy”
they said, jaws set
determination
eyes glazed
Selfish Ones seeing only
what they wanted to see
tunnel-vision of mind's eye
narrowed down to one word
