Volare by Jocelyn

          I wanted to melt with you right there and stay with you indefinitely. We both hoped
          time would stop but it sped fast like a speed train through all those months of
          cigarettes and sleepy talks on rooftops. You asked me not to leave, and you can’t
          imagine what I would have given to stay. 

Real by Jasmine McGill

          Bundle up your hair, put on your necklace and earrings

          Pull on your coat of lies, grab someone else’s ID

          Pretend for another day that this is what you want to be

Winged Wish by JrJ

          I fell and fell, watching the ground rush closer and closer, I knew it wouldn’t last so
          why go on? Feeling this free, for only a moment would be torture the minute it ended  
          until the end of my time.

Let Me Speak by Alyss The Red-Nosed Reindeer

          I don’t mean to pry,

          But do you lie

          When you say

          That you love me?

          Are you just repeating

          A sick melody?

Maybe, This is Life by Tilly Gilbert

           She located purse, phone and keys and was about to open the door of her cramped  
          room, when she realised she had nowhere to go. A moment’s hesitation. A shrug.
          And she was gone.
