Literature
First Meeting
Smooth and unending pits of fresh turned dirt
stare into the blue of an early morning dawn as
the sun abandons the fresh dew and turns its attention to
the hearts and minds that wander amid the trees to
wonder what lies beneath the unrelenting touch of
the stale breeze that blows through on a hot summer day
providing comfort and release from skin that seems to be
hotter than the sands of the Sahara on a cloudless day in August.
Flesh reaches out and quenches as it’s been touched like
a drought-ridden cactus on the day of a freak rain storm,
bringing hope and life to a world that once seemed dark as
the center of the core of the human body where no light
has ever had the chance to bestow its gracious touch.
Relief washes over and doubt runs dry as lips part and teeth shine,
this new world is where life is worth living.

Literature
Domestic Concern
Sensation fills our minds and the time that we spend delving deep into the chasm of worry about what is not on our back porch, trying to discern concern for those on the other side of the world is admirable, but worry should be directed at those lost by the administration of the anathema of the state. More than is a comfortable count, but would one be a comfortable amount? To lose a child, not just in the park or at the store, but in the system that was meant to protect them is unthinkable. We should cry out and rip our clothing. We should shave our heads and grow our beards. Sit-ins and hunger strikes will only get us so far. We need to demand justice, vigilant justice. Accountability is key and for those in key positions it means nothing. “As long as I and mine get my due then I don’t care about the person to the left or right worrying only about the center.” Fuck that! Care and concern are not meant for self-reflection. Reflect on life and liberty. Stand up and rea

Unforgettable
I place my hand on your cheek and
close the gap, staring at your smiling teeth,
my lips meet yours and draw in your bottom lip,
a feeling rises up and I’m trying not to slip, but
I find myself thinking about sinking to my knees and
spreading your legs and teasing just to tease, but
eventually I will please and you will come and
unforgettable will be the theme of the night.

Literature
You
Those balls of brown, hazel, and light
are the focus of my dreams at night and
that curve of your plump red lips
frame an unforgettable smile that slips
through my mind and send chills
down and throughout, better than any pills,
calming my nerves and releasing my anxiety
ensuring the continued passion for my sobriety
because you are the only drug I need,
a desire to touch you is what I feed and
your pale flesh needs to be pressed to mine
our bodies close and our minds entwined.
A connection has formed and I have no intention
of leaving you wanting due to any inattention
because you have filled all that is me and
bringing you into my life is now the greatest need as
I want all of you and all that is you as
from this point forward, it’s not just new,
it’s an adventure that I never want to end.

Literature
New Girl
Fingers dance on air
reaching for something not there, but
I look within and find that
you have taken up residence in my mind.
A constant thought and a hesitant hope
that my lips will land
at the base of your throat.
I yearn to hold you tight and
find you in my sight where
I’d like to never let go, but
it’s more than that I know.
Your words are sweet and your eyes are kind,
your heart is pure and you’re one of a kind.
You’re what I need
a mind that is sharp and quick,
a heart that is vast and a
body that won’t quit.
I’m not sure how you feel, but
I think in every direction, hoping that
I remember to use just a bit of
restraint and discretion.
Until my eyes meet yours,
I will treasure your words and
hope for all that
you are willing to give.

Literature
Doll
Upturned eyes
searching for inclusion,
the hope of laughter
dying on downturned lips.
Skin that cries to be caressed and
a softness that cannot be faked,
drives a body to reach out
and pull the alabaster beauty in
letting her know that she is wanted,
beautiful, and needing to be taken.

Rebecca Intro
Waking up in vomit and wondering how she got home, Rebecca slid out of bed and stripped the sheets. It was Monday. Something was special about the day, but she couldn’t remember what it was. Running the hot water in the shower, she got undressed and stepped into the blistering heat.
As the water washed over her, tears came streaming down her face. The night before was like many other nights, but she was tired. She no longer wanted to please other women and men to put food on her table and keep a roof over her and her daughter’s head. Becca had been tricking herself out for about four years, a year after her long-term boyfriend and the father of her daughter skipped town after pawning most of their belongings.
There were scars on her back from one guy who just wanted to beat her with a bullwhip. She was hesitant, but when he offered her ten grand for a half an hour, it was hard to pass up. It took more alcohol and drugs than she had ever done to rinse the taste of him from h

Literature
Trump
Dyslexic dumbed down dialogue
from the demagogue with
the dilapidated discourse
forming intercourse of
more than one distressed
individual with a power trip
tripping on his own words -
fallacies for floundering fickleness
befriending the unfriended
of social media and being the
bulldozer of the overrepresented,
unmolested middle class white male.
Win at all costs and it all costs
your decency and your soul.
Vote, Change. Matter.

There are lots of things you can get involved in:

Bullet; Red we post monthly writing prompts (that include prizes, and a chat event during the month to help people with their pieces),

Bullet; Black publishing opportunities from other sites (whenever we come across one!),

Bullet; White we have a monthly feature that includes a deserving member, two of the best critiques we've seen during the month, and two helpful writing resources,

Bullet; Red a monthly affiliates feature of two Literature groups,

Bullet; Black and a biweekly-ish article in which one of our admins gives an in-depth critique to one of our members' work that hasn't received much feedback.


We'll soon be reviving our chatroom with weekly activities, so stay tuned for that too. :D (Big Grin)

We also have Facebook and Twitter accounts. On our profile page you will find links to the latest of all the activities I listed up here and to our social networks that will help you keep updated, so feel free to look around and ask if you have any questions, we're here to help!
