by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Jan 28, 2021

Love is a drug. / Sex is a drug. / We all hallucinate for a Utopia of peace and love, / even though reality keeps us mentally sober. / Our consciousness and Spirits are forever in conflict. / We try to numb the pain with stimulants, half the time / we self inflict. / Religion the biggest drug keeping…  sign in to read more »

»The Voice, Guess who?«

by Shylet Noma Clint Mncube, Aug 4, 2014

I love lonely hearts. / I hate faithful partners. / I love married women and men they are my easy target. / Temptation is my trend. / I hate it when people block me. / I love teenagers who are going through adolescence and life challenges. / I hate it when they abstain. / Guess who? / / I lie but who doesn'…  sign in to read more »

by Thomas Mpho Ndlovu, Feb 12, 2014

Don't judge me / I am not an addict by choice / I fell inlove with a girl / A girl my father did not approve of / The more I tried to stay away / Was the more inlove I fell / / Don't judge me / I am not an addict by choice / A perfect family of 3 ruined by a girl / A gal my father did not approve of / It was…  sign in to read more »

»Oh Wine!«

by Rafeel Wasif, Apr 4, 2011

I want intoxication and the wine / A season of reason this world be yet passion is divine / / In the night of darkness, Hearken I the symphony of the nightingale, / Yet why might my heart see what my eyes didn't dare? / / The discord of its tears, smooth like a stream / And the beauty with which they…  sign in to read more »

»The Habit«

by Larry Lenwell, Sep 1, 2009

I wake in a fog after the night before / And swear yet again, it will happen no more / The bottles are broken and the tables in disarray / My habit I'm afraid is growing more each day / / The pills the booze and the staying up all night / Have taken my soul and there's no answer in sight / I fight with my…  sign in to read more »

»Mary Jane«

by Mary Joy Lariza, Apr 27, 2009

On this rigorous night I failed / all my subjectives line a miss / by my own cryptic sigh of regret / then, there was the deprive to reject / / Oh, it was a night full of lies / but my eyes are shout out, fly high / more and more, was that all I hear / as I open a shining spark and I sneeze / / I win a…  sign in to read more »
