Poetry Spotlight: Undiscovered Lies

Angelica Lombardo

 

consumed with
the thought of you
high on love
drunk on the idea
that you
will be
in my life

forever.

Gloom

Poetry | Michael Deabold

 

I have a big mouth.
It’s vile and cruel.
In your face.
With its attitude.
I’m the son of all that’s holy.
The saint of tragedy.
Relay this message.
I don’t regret anything.

Take back your life.
Gut me open with your knife.
Am I as hollow as it seems?

Release the dogs.
Hunt me down.
Put one between the eyes.
At least I’ll go out with pride.

Bad energy doesn’t leave me.
Internal dysfunctions.
Defected in the brain.
Forever damned.
By words I can’t keep to myself.
I set off with snarky quips.
Sitting on my hands.
Zipping my lips.
Insert a clever remark about sinking in sand.
Wasting my days.
Talking in figures of speech.
All I know is what I’m still hoping for.
An open door.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Made it Out

Poetry | Michael Lee

Is that your worst?

My heart on the floor

At 4 am slammed the door

Screamed “this isn’t a home”

***

Picture perfect shattered

Her life is a disaster

He thought he could fix her

But now all he could do is miss her

***

She lost all her hope

Said love is like a knot on a rope

Instead of struggling to undo it

She’d rather burn it to smoke

***

Walking down the street she’s singing

***

I don’t know where I’m going but I’m leaving this town

I’ll pack up my bags, I need to get lost to be found

No one will care if I’m gone, so I’ll disappear

Cause I don’t see the sense in staying here

***

What’s the sense of staying here?

Booked a flight to Chicago

She’ll be gone by tomorrow

Changed her number, dyed her hair

Thinking that change will drown the sorrow

***

Left a note on the table

But she was barely even able

To write it without crying

“Daddy this is the last time-

***

But her tears turned to anger

And she crumpled up the paper

Ran her fingers through her hair

Took the keys and she ran

***

I don’t know where I’m going but I’m leaving this town

I’ll pack up my bags, I need to get lost to be found

No one will care if I’m gone, so I’ll disappear

Cause I don’t see the sense in staying here

What’s the sense of staying here?

***

Now she’s singing

***

I don’t know how I’ll make it, But at least I got out

Spent every last dime, now I’m sleeping on a couch

I’m broken, I’m a mess… But at least I got out

At least I got out.

Favorite Song

Poetry | Angelica Lombardo

 

you are constantly
in two places at once.
in your life,
living,
existing,
daring to become

greater.
but you are

in my mind,

always.

 

 

 

In Case You Haven’t Heard… We Published a Book!

Dear Readers,

As you may already know we have been hard at work the past few months and I am proud to announce that our book, “Sighing in unison: Portraits of Introspection” has finally come to life. Within the 200 pages is a handpicked selection of our best work from the past year. There’s a little something for everyone here; essays, poetry, and photography all falling under a lens of introspection. For us, this is a HUGE accomplishment, coming from a project that was literally just two guys and our rambling thoughts. Since then we have grown into a collective featured work from 15 individuals. We have learned so much about ourselves through our writing this past year, and hope you can learn something about yourselves from reading as well.

Here is the direct link to buy your copy of our book (available in both print and digital formats)

This past month we have also branched out into selling T shirt designs that tie into themes we cover on the site. They are for sale here http://sighinginunison.bigcartel.com/

In the near future we plan on continually expanding as both a publishing group and a design firm. If you are a creative individual and would like to join our team contact us, we’d love to see your work.

I want to send a big Thank you to our readers, our followers on social media accounts and all our supporters, we couldn’t do it without you guys.

Sincerely,

Bryan J Mangam, Co-Founder
