A sting cracks open her heart. A pool of guilt spills over the ruined carpet. New worlds flash into her eyes, Dark shadows linger high on the ceiling, That she once thought were angels. Now she sees they were a mistake. A catalyst of danger, The trouble of a creature lurking deep. And the painContinue reading “What She Did – A Poem”

Spine – A Poem
My spine is broken from how far I have bent, And yet I still cannot reach my toes. The weight that lifts only when they all approve Has found a curve in our stomachs , Resting easily in the hollow.
Train – A Poem
Fuzzed up blackening blue seats crane eagerly at windows of green and grey whirling into each other. Vibrations confirm the world is passing by. A head of oaky coloured strands tickling unseen ears weighs a bare neck down towards the chalk of a resin table, eager eyes caressing words that remind them of how theyContinue reading “Train – A Poem”
The Game – A Poem
It didn’t come home, and neither did they. At least, not the same as they were yesterday. Browns and greens spatter, needless and sore, It was only a game, but not any more.
Ocean Mild – A Poem
Strange tides do quell in the currents.The breaks go on into a swirl of tepid bubbles,It rises. In and out and further and closer.The changing patterns forming on shredded shells,Painted rocks.Never the same, as the last waves feast,Froth writing new truths into old formed canvases.Everything moves into the same.Yet none are identical.Another wave comes.

Sleep is when I’m happiest. I drift off into the night sky, Stars surround me as I fly, Surrounded by darkness I Sink into terrible peace. Awful only as it will end. Light moving in, I leave my dream, Shining through in a stream Spotlight on a solo theme, Low grumbles of fight And yetContinue reading “Awaken – A Poem”
Currents – A Poem
A fester of grievances piles high on my temple. A tsunami of disruption and pity that wants nothing more Than my tranquil waters. I have crested the waves on a creak And landed in splinters.
Locked – A Poem
Slow Fizzing silence Moulds around the rooms. Movement settles From the door Closing. Unsat in chairs Linger in unopened windows. Shadows sit tightly Against each detail. Maybe I Am a shadow too.
Tremble – A Poem
My brain singled me out today. It whispered drastic taunts, Made me follow down a line of thought That echoes in my brain. A rock thrown in a lost of caves. I did not want to hear So I screamed in silence. Can’t disrupt others. The ache of physical work Fired the ache in myContinue reading “Tremble – A Poem”
Fear – A Poem
I have seen in black and white and red, But it is not a joke. It is the blurring of vision, The dry mouth and heart in throat, The replaying of a fairground mind, Spinning faster until you gasp for the air that has been Thrown from your lungs in an effort for you to Continue reading “Fear – A Poem”
