These stars sit inside me
where there was once
Kamand Kojouri

nobis cum semel occidit breuis lux,
nox est perpetua una dormienda. ”
Catullus, Carmina

W.B. Yeats
The Scholars
"Bald heads forgetful of their sins,
Old, learned, respectable bald heads
Edit and annotate the lines
That young men, tossing on their beds,
Rhymed out in love’s despair
To flatter beauty’s ignorant ear.

They’ll cough in the ink to the world’s end;
Wear out the carpet with their shoes
Earning respect; have no strange friend;
If they have sinned nobody knows.
Lord, what would they say
Should their Catullus walk that way?”
W.B. Yeats, The Wild Swans At Coole

Tatjana Ostojic
“I’m wrapped in you.
Melting in your silhouette
and becoming one,
a strange contour of love,
flowing with the wind.”

Abhijit Naskar
“Sonnet of Silence

I am the loudest when I am silent,
My lips are shut yet I speak treasures.
Speech without heart is nothing but noise,
Listen to my silence, you'll hear the universe.
Words spoken with mere lips reach nowhere,
For it's the heart that makes words alive.
Tell people who you are without saying a word,
Speak from your very core, they'll listen alright.
I repeat, silent people have the loudest hearts,
For when you speak less you get to listen more.
The more you listen the more you are heard,
The more you hear the more you get to grow.
Set the words on fire, let them all turn to ashes.
Tell people who you are without all the speeches.”
Abhijit Naskar, Honor He Wrote: 100 Sonnets For Humans Not Vegetables

Fábio Moon
“The ghazals are convincing, and patience is a powerful weapon…but the heart of a timid man will never win his lady.”
Fábio Moon, Two Brothers

Tatjana Ostojic
“Her image mirrored in his eyes.
Embraced, tightly holding breath.
Two swaying shadows kept in secret,
shielded by the mountain,
soothing unquenched thirst
for one another.
Their throbbing hearts,
finding peace in fervour.”
Tatjana Ostojic

Belle Townsend
“And when I say I love you,
I mean that you can show me your darkest fire your soul can produce,
and I will love you enough to sit with you until the smoke clears.

Leave your disclaimers at the door.
There is no convincing me to not love you.”
Belle Townsend, Push and Pull

“There is something so captivating about her,
like a butterfly, she flutters
about from person to person,
— always leaving them to want more!”
Anmol Kang, Of Love Lust & Lies: Anmol Kang

Abhijit Naskar
“In love all of me is you, in love all of you is me. In love it's all messed up, the sweetest mess we could ever be.”
Abhijit Naskar, Honor He Wrote: 100 Sonnets For Humans Not Vegetables

Abhijit Naskar
“Honor He Wrote Sonnet 22

You don't know love, till you've known heartbreak,
You won't know sight, till you've known blindness.
You don't know courage, till you've felt helpless,
You won't know light, till you've been in darkness.
Darkest clouds herald the brightest sunshine,
Direst circumstances make the bravest of character.
Heavier the rainfall, more breathtaking the rainbow,
Steeper the hill to climb, sweeter the summit vista.
Once your back is against the wall, only way is through,
You won't know integrity, till you are left in pieces.
Lose all identity, only then you'll know to be human,
You won't know wholeness, till you've felt nothingness.
More ominous the night, more spectacular the daybreak.
Till we're wiped out for a purpose, there’s no upliftment.”
Abhijit Naskar, Honor He Wrote: 100 Sonnets For Humans Not Vegetables

“Ladybird Heart by Stewart Stafford

O darling o' my heart,
If 'tis true that is what thou art,
Then recognise and see me.

Didst I not win thy heart so bold,
And giveth thee rings of gold?
Anon, honour our precious union.

But to interfering teams,
Thy loyalty now it seems,
Thee grants these canker blossoms o'er me.

Recall how they hath tried,
To jilt me from mine own bride,
And keepest thou lonesome and melancholy.

So, returneth, my dove,
To this, thy bed of love,
And sleep soundly beneath thy lovebird's wing.

Nancy Morejón
“y los himnos pluviales que nacen de su boca
envolviéndonos sí como a dos nautas
enlazados al velamen incierto del amor.

(de "A Un Muchacho")”
Nancy Morejón, Where the Island Sleeps Like a Wing: Selected Poetry

Abhijit Naskar
“If it is the will of love,
I'll convert a thousand religions.
If it is the will of love,
I'll disown a thousand ancestors.

If it is the will of love,
I'll change a thousand nationalities.
You just command, my sweet,
Love's wish is life's theology.”
Abhijit Naskar, Amor Apocalypse: Canım Sana İhtiyacım

Abhijit Naskar
“Only truth in the cosmos is love.”
Abhijit Naskar, Amor Apocalypse: Canım Sana İhtiyacım


New hopes rose from ashen desires
when you wafted in.
Between your dreams and the stars
my kaleidoscopic dreams
are floating like amorphous clouds
where our souls and hearts
are a miscible solution
glistening with love.”
Spriha Kant

Tamara Rendell
“Tears fall like liquid leaves
into the streams and full,
autumn-coloured rivers of our blood
And liquid leaves become crystal
in our winter fortress
before they flow
shifting, changing
rich red by grace of autumn
and fertile in the spring”
Tamara Rendell, Lunar Fire
