    Tapping my fingers I play with a pen My yawns they all linger I’m dozing again Shift in my seat Scuff my shoes on the floor On the desk my head beat Try hard not to snore Nothing to do But keep wasting time I want something new Perhaps I’ll try crime Or maybe just run Don’t look b...

    I am lying with my back on dew damp grass The world is slowly turning The sky rotating Mocking my protesting logic And nauseated corneas I just lie here And stare With too wide eyes Frozen in time Trapped in the amber Of lethargy Each breath Captures the hushed roar Of an ocean I am...

    The sun has not yet risen, But it won’t be long in coming The faint grey tint To the otherwise inky depths, When the stars are fading And the moon is paling Yet there is no dawn which can be seen. I watch from the bus window, Wiping away the ghost of my breath From the glass. Below me a...

    T’was the shop before Christmas And all had gone mad The frenzy of spending Turned gents into cads I’d left from my home With a wave and a smile My folly was shown “I’ll be back in a while” As I got to the shops My jaw hit the ground The shelves were stripped empty No food to b...

    Do you want to know a secret? Can I trust you with it? It’s important you know It may change your life. Can I tell you? Will you keep it? Lock it away? Never let it see daylight? You must promise. Solemnly. Eternally. Pinky promise. Swear on your life. Cross your heart. I want to tel...

    I see all the world, every moment from every time. Every tear every breath every fight every peace, the colours of all the universe splattered across my vision. I see darkness beyond mere despair and hope shining beyond mortal ken of light, each and every raindrop every scattering of sun...

    Can you hear them? can you see them? the shadows of a ghost the echo of silence. can you feel them? can you taste them on the wind? sweetly bitter smokiness a touch which makes your skin prickle can you look at them? can you give them an answer? find the words which can reach beyond sounds...

    I saw it, I caught a glimpse, a flicker, a brief image, an impression, a suggestion, a momentary flash. I gasped: amazed, stunned, speechless, dumfounded, astonished, amazed, dazed, bemused and stupefied. It was beautiful, striking, picturesque, gorgeous, luxurious, eye popping, exquisit...

    I suppose that you could say it all began with the moment when he first turned his back to me, walking away down the road and laughing at my folly. Or perhaps it was earlier than that. Perhaps it was when we were children and he was cruel for the first time. That time when we were so young and yet p...

    once I held fire in my bare hands twice I was held in turn by those who sought my own inner fire three times I broke free of chains which were made of silk and woven by demi-angels four times I broke my promise and five time I made a vow six times I walked to the very edge of what is known ...

    I have always suffered from boredom. Always hated the intensely mundane nature of the tasks allotted to me. I want to be intrigued, fascinated, excited. I want adventure. I want a thrill. But there are no adventures left in the world today. There are no uncharted lands remaining. No foreign shore, n...

    It was a total cliché, a complete low budget horror movie moment. The snapping of a twig, heard from within a cabin where I was staying for the weekend with my friends. The place was steeped by the usual tacky legends of vengeful ghouls and ghosts, surrounded by the requisite dark woods, and yep- y...

    Oh to be a hawk cried the sparrow for I fear my view of life is rather narrow to soar above the clouds with my hunting call so loud and to glide over the farmer’s field and fallow Oh to be a sparrow cried the hawk to have a merry song and not a savage squawk to flutter through a field ...
