Cherry Laurel

  The church was practically empty, this wasn’t particularly surprising given how unpopular Thomas had been throughout his life, he was a cruel, spiteful man and this empty church was a true reflection on just how unloved he really was, if it wasn’t for this unseasonable heat wave we were having I’d have expected people

Just a few Haiku’s…

  A moment in time Captured by the silent one They will never know.     Brains! They shouted, The unmistakable sound. Zombies are coming!     Click, click goes the pen Writers block has you speechless, Will it ever end? Im not entirely sure these are correct now I’ve actually gone over them again,

The Demons That Preside

It seems to be the norm these days for tragedy to strike before action is taken, that treacherous part of the road you cross everyday, nothing ever gets done until a child is knocked down and killed. why does somebody always have to die before we listen up and make a difference? On the 11th

Precious moments…

  Most of us long for life to find us as we drift along its roads, it doesn’t occur to us, as often as it should, that this is life, people spend theirs searching for the why? and the how? why can’t we just live? If I was told tomorrow that this was it, life is just this,

The only release…..

    Your face it fills me with such feeling, A dread that drills and drums, A shaking sweat, spills out, I’m kneeling Until my saviour comes. Your touch it terrifies me to tears, A horror that’s hell not healing, A fumbled fall that releases fears A nightmare still unreeling. I’ll sit and suffer, supressed

Celestial Temptation

  I’ve walked your pathways Once or twice, But only in my dreams, For now I know this Will suffice, Until I cross your seams. Your vastness calls Its beckoning, Its tranquil there I see. My mind and heart Are reckoning, My soul will be set free. I’ve sensed your presence Many times, A yearning

I could even be enticed

Rejection

    I’d like to knock down every door that slams shut in my face it’s such a soul destroying act that puts me in my ‘place’ Who on Earth do they think they are, these decision making monkeys? Someday I’ll be the organ grinder and relegate them to flunkies! I’ve paid my dues and

Acceptance

  I often try to think of ways to make you realise this is real My words are often lost on you, rejection is what I feel. My pen is poised above the paper, wanting to tell you more My heart is bursting with love and feelings buried beneath the core Just a glimpse of

Isolation

This poem was inspired by the book The Island by Victoria Hislop.   I gazed upon your dusty streets, Your windowless walls filled with pain. The blossom still blows across the ground, Will there be life here once again?   I wandered slowly down your pathways, I breathed in the murky sadness. The wind whispers memories
