4:18am (Insomnia)

we held each other close dancing slowly my arms wrapped around your neck yours at my waist I stared into your eyes I felt as if I was falling or being pulled it felt weightless effortless how it felt just right to be in this moment with you and then time paused I saw something […]

8:42am (Insomnia)

She’s lying upon her bed She wakes, trembling violently Her jaw is wired shut Her eyelids rapidly flutter There’s a pressure on her chest Breaths in spurts and shudders There is something inside her She wants to vomit It moves to leave It wants to escape It tears and claws inside her There’s violence in […]

Concentrate (Voices Call)

Voices call and sometimes I answer Feel the cold blade How it beckons, longs To stretch across my skin Bright red ribbons Becoming darker, thicker Hot, wet, wonderful Freak! Freak! Freak! They shout into my greedy ear That’s not normal! But oh how lovely it is Stroke upon stroke A better brush and canvas An […]

Dreamworld – A Short Story

I had struggled within myself. I was working through the internal war which I always fought. The Lover, the Inflictor, the Jester, the Intellect, the Artist.

Visions

you’re who I think about night after night and day by day I have visions of you here in my bed of your hands spread across me your lips dancing on mine our bodies moving together or my arm spanning your chest and my cheek upon your shoulder I can hear your intoxicating laughter in […]

Wired

Wired Tied down Listening in Hear that? It’s me The inner most parts Heart tones Seeking out notes Back-filling and tempo Static and background noise Wired Pushing out from beneath my skin My temples Wrists Lungs and heart Electrodes Observing Whish-Whoosh, Whish-Whoosh Listen long enough You’ll hear tears welling Spilling, sliding Heart melting, cooling Hard […]

Fractured Healing

He stood at the window of his cabin his back to her Lost in his own thoughts Tortured by his own dark demons Memories flooded his vision Unbidden Unwanted Unforgotten He stared into the inky blackness beyond the pane A clear sky and moonless night Stars flung from one side of his vision to the […]
