Behind the darkness An illumination Shadows in the night Made visible by the light Could it be? The dark and light Conspiring against me One I thought Was my friend Turned out to be A friend of the enemy. -Atlanta Karenina I am from the Philippines. You’ll find me in a corner, sipping tea and immersed in fiction Or in the kitchen, trying to perfect the chocolate cake.
Hi, my name is Marcus Roi Medford from Toronto, Canada. I’m a poet, a journalist and incessant over-thinker.
Never be ashamed to say I love you
For one day it might be to late
For one day it will be impossible
So do it now, do not wait
Without expressing your feeling
Without showing that you care
Your life becomes empty
Into the abyss you will stare
We don’t know what’s around the corner
Whether you will be around for another day
Just three little words “I love you”
That is all you have to say
Then you feel the elation within yourself
For you have opened up your heart
You realise what those three words mean
Expressing your love, making a new start
Don’t take your loved ones for granted
Let them all know in turn
Then you will find they will reciprocate
By giving their love in return
With many coloured hues and shapely wing?
Why quit the open field and summer air
To flutter here? Thou hast no need of prayer.
‘Tis mete that we who this stone structure built
Should come to be redeemed and washed from guilt,
For we this guilded edifice within
Are come with every kind of human sin.
But thou art free from guilt, as God on high;
Go seek the blooming waste and open sky,
And leave us here our secret woes to bear,
Confessionals, and agonies of prayer.
