GUEST POST // threedom by Cassy Single

you on your own
is fun for a while
you can take yourself shopping
to restaurants, to movies
then you meet someone
and you fall in love
you build a life together
as partners in crime
you think that
there is only so much love
in the world to go around
then you meet someone
who fits in with you both
the duo becomes a trio
a triumvirate of love
two is better than one
three is better than two
you open yourself up
to the amazing person
in front of you
and gain a new family
it turns out
love truly knows no bounds

GUEST POST // blink through stone by Cassy Single

sassafras closed her eyes
and felt the sun
it was warm and comforting
the sky was a blanket of blue
the ground a carpet of green
her eyes blinked
rays of colour from the meadow
streamed into her brain
she let herself feel
see, smell and taste
the world around her
for too long she saw anguish
smelt blood and tasted ash
it was time to come alive again
let colour seep into the black
and fill in between the lines

GUEST POST // The Kids Must Grow Up by Cassy Single

No one should ever hear
the sky cracking open with bombs.
No one should live in fear
of what tomorrow will bring.
We think we are evolved.
We have leaders
that should serve the will
of the people.
The people say no.
All it takes is one man
to build enough power around him,
that this one man
holds a people
to ransom.
Politics is dominated
by children in a schoolyard,
small men
whose dreams shape our very lives.
The whole world must say no,
must stand together.
Peace must prevail.
Glory to Ukraine!
