Aftermath of love
We walked miles with blistered feet across the burlywood desert of opposition
and lay bare entwined under the
puce blanket of the firmament
You promised me unending sunsets of amaranth velvetiness
magical nights under the jacaranda tree mellowed by passion
lazy cerulean days lounged and laughed with gay abandon
liquid sunshine afternoons basked and lingered in coffee cups
sun played hide and seek on ancient moss covered feldgrau walls
as we exchanged eternal love soaked vows to never part
of all the rainbow hued love stories whispered in my ears
not one mentioned the fading tints of aftermath of love
wishes now wither within my bosom before they can bloom
sunsets are wishy washy and nights; insufferable monotones of black.
Welcome to MasticadoresUSA.
MasticadoresUSA features talented writers of poetry and short prose. We primarily publish writers who write in English, and are based in the USA. However, while the publication language remains English, we also welcome the work of our fellow writers from all over the world.
What do we want to bring to our readers? Edgar Allan Poe once wrote: Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words. This is what we are committed to bringing to you. And that’s not an easy endeavor.
If you want to submit, please send your work – poetry and/or short prose – to firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition to the piece(s), you want to have published, we need your name, and the address of your site. Submit your work as a docx attachment – not in the body of the email. Limit your submission to two pieces. We do not accept pieces longer than 300 words.
What are the themes that we are looking for? Surprise us!
However, MasticadoresUSA does not publish any work that contains racist, homophobic, sexist, and hate talk of any kind.
Looking forward to your submissions.
