Free Shoulder

Sarah Doughty

“I’ll be there if you need me.
The only problem is that
I’m not the one you need.”

I may not be able to fix anything that’s gone wrong. I may not be the one you want to turn to when you feel like drowning in your item ocean of sadness. But let me tell you something. I’m not like most people. I’ll continue being loyal. I’ll be there if you need me. Because I’ve got a free shoulder. The only problem is that the shoulder you seek belongs to someone else.

Whether you need me or not,
I’m here.
That’s what matters.

I Found my Soul

Confab With Me

Gliding down from far above
floating through some feathery clouds,
my dreams blending in the azure skies
forming a crimson hue
scattered on the faraway horizons,
and I breathing the gelid airs
smiling in blithe
for I met you
and the heart deciphered
the restlessness I nurtured all my life,
the old soul I desired is you, my love,
and in finding you I found my soul

We Sat Together – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon


RDP Monday – Mend



“Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through struggle”. Martin Luther King Jn.

We Sat Together

The room went very quiet as we sat together,
it was a pigment of their imagination
that we were perhaps not quite right,
somehow an offence to
the workings of the universe,
but we sat none-the-less
making our mend
one conversation at a time,
bridging the gulf of
someone’s triumphant version of history,
grounding ourselves in each other,
making our paths straight.

Keep it alive

Flowers picked hastily

From the roadside growing wild

A peace offering for his girl

Hoping to cover his misdemeanor

With an impromptu show of love

And undying devotion

Before offering an apology
