The night is full of beating hearts
So loud, so intense
Beat after beat
A rhythmic language
That hides no secrets
The night is full of lovers
Entangled in each other's grips
The night is full of the lonely
Lying awake, spread across an empty bed
Craving the touch of another
Tears carve down flushed cheeks
Tears for the missed
The night is full of artists
Their muse being...

Angelina Nguyen (Australia) published:
Filtered dyes pooling sea blue and light green,
A photograph rimmed with a border line,
Shares a moment from when we had first dined;
Two tables, a hemstitch cloth draped between,
Silverware I had never before seen,
Glasses filled with a strong, fermented wine,
In the centre, a candelabra shines.
The chuckles, banter, a picturesque scene.
How we gracefully twirled around the dance floor,
Gentlemen bowed, girls curtsied shyly,
My dress swirling, above the skies I soar,
Violins cease, and...

We are just friends..
Are we really?...
I just like you....
You turned out to be my best friend we have known each other since we were small.
It was simply met to be.... well that's what I thought.
I love you... I like you more then a friend
I love you... But it feels wrong

I think, I think I like you.
I've forgotten how to love so excuse me if I can't explain it.
I think even if I did.
Why would you, like me?
You're sweet and kind and funny.
You never cease to make me smile.
But what are we?
Acquaintances? Friends? More?
What will we ever be?
No one has made me question my sanity as much as you.
I'm trying to solve these feelings; make them...

I open the door
The morning chill slapping my face
I sit down on the first step,
Indulging in the presence of such a beautiful hue
Painted and engraved deep into the sky,
But the source, billions of miles in space
Yet the collaboration of colors overwhelms me with it's grace
A feeling of tranquility washes over me
Towards the end of the day
When the stars start brushing their teeth
Preparing for a long watchful night,
The sun sets...

I wish I could tell you how hard it was going to be
I wish I could hug you telling you it’s okay
I wish I could be there for you
But I can’t
That doesn’t mean that I don’t love you
I’m living proof that you made it!
So stop being so sad
Times get rough
The going gets tough
And through it all
I’m all you had
I was your hope
The person you wanted to...

Reece (United States) published:
It's the color he wore when he walked into your life
It's the pit in your stomach when the world doesn't make sense
It's the color he taught you to love
It's the silhouette of the mountains that reach up to the sky
It's the color you felt when you watched him walk away
It's the night gathering you up in its arms
it's the color that broke you.
