From Beyond The Light

Slink through the shadows escaping lightOne wrong step will reveal the fightNot a motion you wish to makeIrreversible mistake Cause even with your bleached clawsIt doesn’t mean you’re without flawsFlesh, sinew and old boneThey are still what was hewn from stone Effigy of a monsters spawnFrom nightmare you have been drawnSend in slithers of fearsContinue reading “From Beyond The Light”

Beauty In Sound

Plug into my veinI need to feel the gainSound without the painHere we go again Pumping out the noiseFilled with joyous poiseListen for the noteA voice so heaven spoke Reverb along the wallsCacophony of callsYour chest will rumble onRythmn of the song Screech from the ampApproving final stampWhile the static does humBlasts of the machineContinue reading “Beauty In Sound”

Shots

Rot Of The Rise

Hi! This week I’ve got a post-apocalyptic story (about 14,200 words long).

Not got anything else to say about theContinue reading “Rot Of The Rise”

Conker

Growing high above the groundFrom where I can look aroundWhile my brothers continue to growBefore we drop down belowAs the wind rustles leavesWe will soon be cast freeLeft to fall to the floorWhere we hope to be foundClaimed by a happy soulInstead of rotting into a holeBut for the moment we gently swayAs the breezeContinue reading “Conker”

From The Shadows

The story this week is different. It’s not Sci-Fi but is set in the very near future. I really don’t want to say much more because if I do I might ruin the surprise. It’s a shorter story again at about 10,700 words. I had intended to write something else I’d been working on butContinue reading “From The Shadows”
