Untitled

The clamour breeds forgetfulness
As the silence breeds despair,
The weary mind
Labours to hide,
From all the madness in the air.

Untitled

It’s a bitter thing
Only to now realise,
The monster
That I’ve been running from,
All along,
Was the mirror in your eyes.

Untitled

In the night
cradled by dark,
In the silence
my pounding heart,
In the wantonness
of flesh against flesh,
In this moment dying
a little death.

Untitled

Digital distractions,
Chemical relaxants,
Mediocre lunacy.
Ensnared in frenzied greed –
The obsequious cogs,
Within the great machine.

Untitled

The enduring oak ~
stark winter spray
a delicate ebony lace ~ bestrewn,
against the midnight-hued sky
awash with stars

Apostatism

Unbidden victim
Gratefully adrift,
In the rapture of you.
Here I find blind faith
In cold tyranny,
And servitude anew.

I Become Dumb

You ask me,
But I cannot say.

Words scatter
Thoughts disperse
I cannot grasp them,
Slipping through my fingers
Intangible as ghosts.

You ask me,
I become dumb
