Instead banquets hidden behind the flurry of hands are enclosed in one corner. In another lie emaciated bodies that lift their eyes from the floor every now and then as they wait for their servers to come. We’re all starving, really, because those who have food will grab all they can without a backwards glance. And those who don’t will eye the feast from below, obvious of the knowledge that they are not the only ones who are hungry. Burning Burn this once you have finished reading it. Offer this scramble of words to the flames and watch the blaze weaken letter after letter until only lifeless ashes remain.

Scream for a brighter flame, for thicker smoke, for unbearable heat, and let no drop of tears or sweat come near your pitiful shrine. Grind your fingers to and fro until the blood runs down your hands and I promise you that I will laugh through the barricade and that the wall of water between us will make Hell itself seem cold. Burn these words. Burn them in the creation you take no credit for until their letters peal and rupture through rotting wood. Leap further into the fire until your silhouette is lost within the smoke and I promise you I promise you now that the scars will strengthen a force you have wanted to ignore, and you will sink further than I did when you seized my hand and dragged me through to the other side. _________________________________________________________ Matthew Harris “Let me state the obvious that i like to write, ideally a thought provoking diatribe versus some string of words rather trite which verbose verbiage tends to be long winded and vaguely understood quite yet this somewhat Follow 12/20/2011

This wise, good man used to read poems to me when I was a kid, saying that I too will read my poems to other people, but first I shall roam the world searching for myself. I admit I no longer have the will or power to roam around, but I haven’t lost the will to write poetry. All I want is to share my pan, suffering, loneliness, love and desires with the whole world.’’ From the Heart of Poet LONELY NIGHTS Against the old oak I cling my cheek to hear a lost voice inside; The voice of a lost friend, the voice of my lost father and mother, the voice of lost love. And in this lonely night the voices inside the old oak are quiet and inaudible, as if dying along with my spirit. The night has turned its beautiful lonely face to the sky, and I, I call out my own name in this lonely night. which became perfectly strange to me – with some desperate hope that I shall hear the echo of my own spirit. Wise people say that each spirit is made of memories, and my memories are dead; dead like those lost voices inside the old oak, which, like vampire claws, raises its old, barren branches towards a black crow, to steel its voice and to call out into this silent, lonely night, like the voice of many friends of men, that someone’s tear sometime dies before it’s born. Inside me, there is still hope that someone shall hear my name, and that it won’t sound as strange as it does to me. Slowly and ghastly I tread the shadows like a sinner treads the skulls in hell, and I call out with a solitary cry into this lonely night, to chase away death, if I can’t chase away solitude. But what is life worth without voices, not the ones you can buy, but voices of conscience, which are born and eternally live along with human souls. Against the old oak I cling my cheek, and I listen in to a thousand souls, Now I know, yes, Lord, now I know that someone will call my name as well, because when you hear the voices of souls of dear people you’ve lost, you have the power to bear memories of yourself in someone else. ©Walter William Safar OLD OAK In the shadow of solitude now I see Your eyes, that so faithfully carry about the light through my thoughts so dark, and the pen trembles in the hand, waiting for the prodigal son’s acknowledgement. My one and only, acknowledgements arrive in solitude’s embrace, just like tears, and where there is a tear, there is love, always faithful and unbribable, invisible but so real Follow 12/20/2011
  12. 12. Poetry « Page 12 of 15 that you can touch it with thoughts and with the fiery breath in the infinity of solitude. I admit to using my verses as ransom for my guilt, (and guilt is my silence), and I listen to the rumor that perpetually, like a bat, whirls across the lonely poet’s street. They say that me and You, my one and only, are fantasy, but a pen immersed in ink. But You know, don’t You, that me and You are perfectly real, full of wishes, dreams and memories. My one and only, I am listening to the whisper of the wind in this warm, dreamy summer night… It is silent, horribly silent without You, and the wind’s whisper is dying down, farther away, oh so far, as if called by death to its black hearse, and I have waited for so many days, months and years to appear, to bring Your voice to me, gentle, soft, warm and yearning, but it is so silent, oh so silent now, that I can hear the screams of solitude chase away memories into this warm summer night, my one and only, I am standing in the shadow of the dignified oak, and I am looking into his empty sleepiness, as if its playfulness left along with You, it is silent like the wind. Its dear, green, eternally waking young leaves, who used to whisper in Your vicinity, untrammeled and confidential, are completely silent now, completely dead. Now I am trembling in the shadow of our oak, fearfully looking at it as it drags its dignified old face along the ground, its memories are as lively as mine. Once, yes, once the memories, who live so inaudibly, shall become so weak, so humanly weak, that they shall find their dark home next to our wooden crosses. © Walter William Safar ___________________________________________________________ Boboye mary Mozimo Boboye mary Mozimo is a Nigerian International student, with a passion for creative writing.
