Reunited by DianesDigitals

The years flew by with him. The years dragged since he passed. Now it’s time to reconnect as he takes my hand and we share an endless kiss.

BIRDS by Goldie Alexander

Magpies
butcherbirds
cockatoos and
wattlebirds
swoop over our garden to
dive swoop plunge plummet
whistle argue & quarrel
in their constant search for worms
and love

The Way We Were by John Halili

I’ve seen first hand how a friendship can die. From an unspoken truth that became an all too told lie. Now all I have left are the memories.

Steve/Stephanie by Julie Balloo

You didn’t see me, but I recognised you. Your dress and heels and newly sculpted breasts finally solved the mystery of why we broke up.

Skeleton Man Heart Gift by Kevin Del Principe

He held his still heart in his skeleton hands as an offering. She accepted and placed it between her ribs. It began to beat.

Once an Oak by Molly Wanless

In his armchair, his tremors shake him gently.
This man, once an oak,
is now a house of leaves before the smoke.

Sarah by Napoléon Dûheme

There she lay, my murderess. She’d taken many lives, mine, and now her own. In the end it was not guilt that drove her to it, but boredom.

Coffin by Patrick Ketch

At Williams fathers funeral a phone goes off. He glares at people before realising it’s in the coffin. Horrified he hears it answer, ‘hello’.

STEPHEN FRY by ​@CorSomething​

I went on Twitter. It was shit, so I left.

It Was Spring by S. M. Page

He stepped outside her apartment into the rain. He realized now why he never liked commitment. Besides, there was his wife to think about.
