A block of frozen darkness

Upon a time, a sleep seeker went out. Silhouettes and strange bats were all over this huge block of frozen darkness Heavenly was selfish; stars were silent.

Bird of prey

In a pernicious desertOn top of a craning sun dune,Amidst an intractable dry draught.As I search for any given shadeThere comes a soaring bird;Wings faux like leafy branchesIt glides about while I jostle to its shadow,To lick my crumbling lipsAnd bend to dust my sore feetWhile almost in the oblivion of its shade;It snatches aContinue reading “Bird of prey”

Depart, but with me, if it seems right.Your gifts are warmth and genuine warmth,IContinue reading “Daybreak”

Charred

What was intended is long gone; dying by a pitiful deed of cowardice.Each word felt cold, blunt on my fleshAnd a burst of crude laughter couldn’t hide away a long tendered hurt.When the fire fizzled out, the wrangle left my conscience covered in ashes.As your finger drew fine portrays of frustrationA stoic one could harborContinue reading “Charred”
