——————What can you see now? The darkness is all around. Hush of night surrounds.Hush of night surrounds. Then light, a streak on horizon. A rooster is ruffled.A rooster is ruffled. Its cawing, the silence breaks. Dreamy eyes, shut tight.Dreamy eyes, shut tight. Dreaming love’s dreams, sublime. On lips, a smile. … Continue Reading Dawn by Goutam Dutta (Shi Rensa Haiku developed by Ronovan)💫 #BraveWords #StarfishClub #Poetry #PoetryHub #PoetryCommnity #WritingCommunity #Writing #Coffeeandachat @coffeeandachat1

The echoes of an empty heart Pound, pound pound.The echoes of a hollow heart Sound, sound sound.The tearing out the core gave him pleasure.He scooped it up like forbidden treasure.The echo of an empty heart palpitates with violence The echo of a hollow heart dissolves into silence. He locked it … Continue Reading ECHOES by D.D.💫#StarfishClub @coffeeandachat1 #Poetry #PoetryHub #PoetryCommunity #Writing #WritingCommunity #BraveWords

DEADENED DOWN THERE by Sue Williams 💫 #BraveWords #Poetry #PoetryHub #PoetryCommunity #WritingCommunity #StarfishClub #Writing #Coffeeandachat @coffeeandachat1

I feel deadened, down there, A distended desert of dreams, unrealised, Dried out, destitute, a desolation Of dormant desire. Cowed by a clinging clamour of stalactites, Grim reality, hangs suspended, Banished to a barren bat cave, Where shadowy, silent, sentinels. Stifle the sweet, suffused, sanctity of motherhood. ©all rights reserved … Continue Reading DEADENED DOWN THERE by Sue Williams 💫 #BraveWords #Poetry #PoetryHub #PoetryCommunity #WritingCommunity #StarfishClub #Writing #Coffeeandachat @coffeeandachat1

Charismatic charm callously draws you in, As a sensual squirm of slithering serpents stir; Vituperously strike; venomous in victory. The tantalising allure of the black widow, … Continue Reading Black Moon Lilith by Sue Williams 💫 #BraveWords #Coffeeandachat @coffeeandachat1 #Poetry #PoetryCommunity #WritingCommunity #Writing #PoetryHub

Urban Kiss by Sue Williams💫 #StarfishClub #PoetryHub #Poetry #Coffeeandachat @coffeeandachat1 #PoetryCommunity #WritingCommunity #BraveWords

Dark and edgy, Teetering on the brink of urban sprawl. The rocky road to our first kiss Explodes into vibrant colour, Now, tightly held; in thrall. Silhouetted against the skyline, Backs no longer pressed against the wall, Merging deep into blissful eternity As rainbow colours sublimely radiate, And majestically fall. … Continue Reading Urban Kiss by Sue Williams💫 #StarfishClub #PoetryHub #Poetry #Coffeeandachat @coffeeandachat1 #PoetryCommunity #WritingCommunity #BraveWords
