Love in 5D

Love in 5D

Love in 5D by Ariana Iverson

My problem with love is 
I’ve been looking for the visual package.

Someone who looks like this long list of standards
That I made up in my head.

Physical attributes that don’t even matter.

I’ve been searching for love in all the wrong places
Hoping that when I see him 
I would know he was the one

But now I’m understanding 
it’s not what I see
But what I feel

Someone who makes me feel
like he understands me
We fit together like puzzle pieces 

We create a picture that shows what love is supposed to be
A connection with someone who holds my mind, 
protects my heart,
and wants to create with me

Mind Body and Spirit

We allow ourselves to get lost in the oneness of each other
We accept discovering love beyond the physical

We create a love that is 5th dimensional

Tainted Love by Robert Pillow

Tainted Love by Robert Pillow

Tainted Love by Robert Pillow IV

Your caressing touch
is never too much 
with the sweetness of your tongue. 
As your fingers crawl upon my skin, feeling you deep within. 
Dipped in chocolate, 
Rich in gold, 
No amount of karats are equivalent 
to your worth.
Glazed with elegance, 
As your eyes have me mesmerized 
As your Opaque beauty
Dazed me as I caress your body rapidly.
Sheets tossed like a tornado through Texas.
Everything feels enhanced,
Stay with me... give me a chance.
Roadkill feels this aggressive drive,
As I grip those voluptuous thighs,
I realize you’re ALL woman.
Your love stretches further,
Than any latitude or longitude on this earth.
And your love is forever tainted on my body.

Meet Robert

When Light Comes to Darkness

This photo illustrates the theme of the poem When Light comes to Darkness

When Light Comes to Darkness by Jessica Doble

Darkness lived inside of me.

It surrounded my mind,
spitting out negative thoughts
with the feelings of worry,
anger and fear.

But you see darkness could not control my heart.

My heart is now radiating light
filled with happiness,
smiles and love.

For you see darkness,
my mind is now surrounded
by peace.

Metal Fence

Metal Fence

Metal Fence by Louise Carmeli Montes

Underneath monochromatic shades
I'm wired up like a metal fence
Trapped in this niche illusion
spectating inverted cohesion

Escapism is a beautiful phenomenon
but I resent this chain of dark defense
Forget the fragments of memories
trapped inside your bewildered soul

Wake up in reality and come to your senses
Breathe in, breathe out
It's all about perception
You are molded to become a better person

I am from Manila, Philippines. I graduated with the degree of BS Psychology and working in the industry of Human Resources. I like engaging in outdoor activities like running and hiking. But then just recently, I discovered something that I am really passionate about: writing poetry.

I first started to be fond of reading poems. Until one day, it led me to have the passion to try doing my own. 

Writing is also my outlet of emotions. I consider this as a very beautiful kind of art and a way to relate with people. It feels good to touch hearts through poetry and letting the reader know that there is someone who also understands how he/she feels.

Let me be with you in voicing out your deepest thoughts and feelings. You can follow my Instagram account where you can see my creations: @shewritesforlou.

Long live poetry!

He made her heart race
Her eyes stuck on his face
When he touched her cheek
Her heart skipped a beat
All was better
Until he said, "You are like a SISTER"

Filled Hearts by Andromeda Kosova

Some hearts are filled with rain
Beautiful in their darkness
And some with a light
Unmatched by even the Sun
And some are hail storms
Waiting to be loved
My heart is filled with you

In True Love for a Brief Moment

Flash Fiction by Vedran Tomsic

I picked you up on a summer bluebird afternoon. We decided to leave it all behind for a day and indulge in whatever. 

You see other guys; I live other lives, neither of us minds. Both our hearts, guts and souls were once ripped apart and torn, that’s what makes us strong. We already know our dirty secrets from way before, missing open intimacy, not the score.

You put on a badass song and squeezed my right hand resting in your lap; I kissed the back of yours. A tear of joy started to flood the corner of my left eye. I welcomed it. Your smile outshined the sunset behind us.

We cherished that serene moment of true level, seeing that if there is anything we know is that moments get gone. I am a patient man unlike those boys you like to play; you get me harder than a diamond and I understand drama so I know how buildup can turn a bedroom into a sauna.

But it isn’t imperative for us to fuck as it’s fundamental that we are in each other’s lives and that we protect it at all costs. That much we know. The day was going way too good, close to kitsch. So when we stopped at that one gas station where the bathrooms were working, I just had to try to tongue kiss you in the car because I knew you wouldn’t let me, it made the day perfect.

We laughed about it. Moments are hitchhikers and I picked up one more at the end of the road, gently kissed your lips and squeezed you hard around the waist before I deployed for my personal holy war. As I pulled away, I peered at your silhouette in the rearview.

You never looked back. That’s why I respect you.

On Raphael

Poetry by Vedran Tomsic

Default set to childlike wonder
transcending age and time
globes of silent thunder
lowly and sublime.


Consuming in parallax
the madness that is world
shifted perspective syntax
from baked to raw to served.


Two things we truly own
man’s angel wings of soul
trapped in glass domes
where the wonder child can grow,


forever.

Vedran is a photographer from Slovenia. During a week off in New York in January he went around town collecting feedback on a photo book dummy and got the advice to think about including some writing instead of just photographs.

Six months later he did. It started as a project of combining photography and poetry. Since then, it went from writing poetry and short stories to becoming an integral part of his creative process with more and more serious aspirations with the medium. As a newcomer to shuffling words, he is yet to publish a book, but you can find his writing on Instagram @pencutsandpaperstains

Finding Fault

Finding Fault

By Tiffany Chaney

A leaf hastening 
to nourish detritus—
I settled
 into your arms 
and thought:
we grew better roots together,
or, at least, preserved the seeds
in time for a bitter winter.
Yet maybe I only love 
that peaceful place in you,
the silent, steady eye
that sometimes reveals 
freight train gale and hail 
although you reject the notion
they exist in you.
Yet you spit dirt in the eye,
send me into a typhoon
spinning out,
silk-stunned,
from my carefully-crafted cocoon.
I am the tempestuous one,
while the blood boils 
into your tense hands
and quicksand lips.
A flood unleashes— 

down
pour
 earth
quake
mud
slide
 cataclysmic 
panic attack

It's my fault
line, and we run the same ones,
every time. Tectonic, we shift,
displace overburden, crack tenuous roots,
the impeding fracture of fault creep; 
deeply felled heart bled, for daring 
wear it on a sleeve. 
That's nature.

Just by Being There

Poetry by Mairi Maclean

It’s 3 am and I am in incredible pain,
I wake you in tears just like heavy rain.
There is nothing you can do for me,
But you do it anyway, so graciously.

You soothe me back into the present,
Despite the ache growing incessant.
And I know you would take this all upon yourself,
But you just being there is beautiful for my health.

You give me strength and solace in every way,
And that is a gift I’ll never be able to repay.
I look at you with pure devotion,
And our love spirals into further motions.

You take away all the hurt,
With your being, jokes and cute little flirts.
I have never been so thankful to have met someone like you,
You are my dream and future in all that you do.

Meet Mairi

I am 20 years old from Scotland and have been using poetry as a vessel for my own physical and mental well-being. I have been on a very hectic health journey, enduring 3 cancer diagnosis’/relapses over my short 20 years. 

I was on the cusp of getting my life together again; starting university to study English Literature and Religious Studies, moving to a new city and into my own flat, and getting my health (mentally and physically) back to where it once was. Then bang. The cancer came back. It will be a long recovery, but I am prepared. 

I want to keep my mind alive with curiosity, intrigue, and passion. I love to write and explore the mind, and poetry is such a beautiful platform to do this. I wish for a world free of pain – this is obviously naive – but more in the sense that we can accept our limitations while building each other up. A world where kindness prevails, and I hope to embrace life in new ways. Finding new ways to be inspired, to love and to live.
intrigue,
