Sudden Shift

What happens when you don’t recallIs there any time to foilThe myriad dreams inside my headEach one that can’t be saidAs the gold turns to ashThe ace up the sleeve won’t save thatOnly time will heal the woundsJoin the waters to reach the streamsWhile the crows fly overheadHaving feasted upon the stale breadCircle of lifeContinue reading “Sudden Shift”

Grass Is Greener

OK this one was a difficult one to write. Not because of concept or subject matter but because I just simply struggled with it. I had two false starts. First I got to about three thousand words, then I decided I didn’t like where it was going, deleted half of it, rewrote it back toContinue reading “Grass Is Greener”

Chink In The Armour Might Be A Saviour

For these mistakes I must atoneIf I don’t I can’t postponeDisassociate from my darkest daysWhen all the light had gone away Polarised by things I’ve saidEach one felt like a warheadShot into the heart of lifeObliteration becomes rife But this is not what I wish to leaveSometimes the past needs a reprievePause from the endlessContinue reading “Chink In The Armour Might Be A Saviour”

Night Of The Dead

Dirge of the macabre mawOpening up of the fanged dance floorCobwebs hang from the raftersChandeliers adorned with rapturesJester cavorts along to the schemeAs his smile sits with an evil beamBut sing it once then start againSew into this marrying of whenAs skeletons sway and ghouls cryFuneral march of the bloody allyA place where death isContinue reading “Night Of The Dead”

Blue Eyes Blind

Story time is here again! I swear I’ve said that more than a dozen times but can only think of so many ways of introducing these posts. Anyway, here is another Sci-Fi story, it’s about 11,300 words, I think it’s more fast paced and I want to see if this goes down how you thinkContinue reading “Blue Eyes Blind”

Ascend The Spire

Climbing up this endless riseWill I ever reach the prize?I cannot say what does awaitMaybe this is a grave mistakeAll while the world is turningI’m unaware of how bad I’m burningThe air is thin and it’s hard to breatheI feel like I might have a diseaseBut I can’t say if that’s trueI just want toContinue reading “Ascend The Spire”
