Troubador
I spin my soul in the sunset, It glistens in the rain. Like this web of deceit I will never be the same He will never fondly call my name. Night falls, clouds drift A pen moves, purposefully, swiftly, I watch from the shadows Cast by his form As he waits in his office, Bemused and alone Eight furry legs stretch out where I stand. Your fear and loathing feeling no attraction Of course my appearance must justify your reaction. Another night, beautiful, sleeping creature How to make you mine? I shuffle along your spine This tender sigh and golden eye Bathed in milky moonlight Oh, the spite, the sheer spite That I was cast in

Your Creation
The magical mortal you perceive Stands here in the mask you painted The boundless love that you receive Is a perfection you smudged from the tainted The fractured spirit Frozen in place Would heedlessly abandon All who dared to wrap her arms around them She would walk away At the roll of a dice No tears in her eyes Queen of the ice But you taste her As you place her On your pedestal of virtue Yet floundering in anticipation of how she might hurt you As though a child could etch love with a crayon! Do you know that her torment plays on Through the night? Now Helena, in blazing fury To be told a man could love her Beholds O

Violet Eyes
Quarter past three The clouds are plums and peaches, The sky is cream. You have violet eyes. The lake is oil splashed with silver Frost and mist hang in the air, The room is smudged with darkness But you have violet eyes. My heart holds onto a secret I'll give it wings and let it fly Perhaps though, I might keep it, You have violet eyes. The sun swallowed the rain Through the bitter touch of the breeze That must be a rainbow, so pale in the sky Because you have violet eyes. The pages of the newspaper Cascade from the fourth floor window. I didn't want to read it; Someone had written That you had violet eyes. We walked tog

Tambourine Tougani
Sambo ate a mango by the Coast Cabero sea Jenna perfected Henna and tried it out on me And the vortex waves come rolling in In spectacular spin The vortex waves come rolling in And drowning Chitee learned to miss me while I was out at work Fernado stole the mango on the beach in shadow lurk And the tornado sun goes shining high Like a catch-kipper spy Tornado sun goes shining high Oh my.

In My Imagination
In my imagination You are a mountain That stretches into a dead and icy sky With crimson rocks And tissue paper trees From the branches of which Hang stainless steel clocks In my imagination You are a bird With silver feathers, brilliant plumage that tethers you to the ground And you live in the green sand Swallowing grains of glass Sometime last weekend You played for a brass band In my imagination You are a sponge pudding With sizzling snow jam spurting from your sugary throat An hour baking on a grey city street And another rising up to hell Someone forces a note from a crackling gramophone And you ooze to the beat In

Sonnet Two
While yet thou liest tangled in my mind Look thou but not a moment on my world, So rare that I with ardent passion find That oft' my good intentions are unfurlèd. I hold this sorrow and would not command That thou shouldst feel the pain thy hand inflicts, I ask, my friend, that thou be not alarmed That sometimes hope and reason can conflict. Feel not the flame of my suppressed desire For soon I shall not long to hear thy voice, If this be true I am confessed a liar If this wretch still condemns thy dreadful choice.    Though seldom I protest thee I adore;    I am resolv'd to love thee all the more.

Lost in Translation
These words Plucked out of their sombre routine Stare at me Their faces blurred by truth Pulling through Forcing me to stand High as I was meant to be; I speak - I falter, failing to alter This picturesque reality Still, meaning nothing to me, As I carve oblique lines with chalk Condemning: All this talk, all this talk Those words That you whisper to me I suppose, you dredged from a dream, Screaming, seething Sought from hell's fires I aspire to see To know what you mean.

The New
Is this the answer? …To the contemplation I have always entertained That you've now explained So eloquently So perfectly In learnt language A lesson I felt sure I'd never receive My love, deceive My happiness If you can trust yourself to do so To entwine Your heart and mine In some magical remembrance That endures And makes me yours. Is this the question; That, at your suggestion, I have silenced With a kiss? The violence Of this affection The confection Of your tongue against mine Speaking the silence That only we can interpret The decrepit souls That thought they never could Feel love and certain That we rose abov

Midsummer in Mind
It is… Beyond utterance Beyond consequence, In essence My four sins have been scattered To unspeakable destinations; The culmination is merely That I love you. I love you… As if those words will ever do! As though recitation can suffice To quell the growing bite That overwhelms me, As I contemplate My existence, without you by my side… Devour me, my sweet dreams, May I fall into your arms; The secret you have kept, As I protest My sexual infatuation And my love, in adulation A sense of belonging And longing For years For you; To lay upon your chest And to whisper, to confess That I would follow you as your shadow I

Death of a Lover
Cracked glass on the dusty ground; Death and bone, I stand alone to contemplate a splintered reflection, A patchwork heart bursting at the seams Is numb, has gone, has forgotten how to be. Love; I etch this word in the earth, Terrible love, my burden, my curse It haunts me; it taunts me, In agony I engaged it Forbade it bid me farewell; Do not plunge me into that dreadful hell. How I hated it, how I hate you Love, now that you have left Dry eyes and sex Struggle to recall desire. I feel a fire Flickering, fading, embers trading Emotion for thought That finds no logic in all those battles I fought. Like a candle I melt all

I'll Let You Die
Would it be Such a tender recitation, If I stood shrouded in your doubt? Could it be Such a fond reconciliation, If you surmounted the contemplation that will never let me out…? I'll let it go, I'll let them grow; These unspoken fantasies that swarm between you and I… I'll let them die. Should it seem Much of a raw recitation, As I choke on my response to your words, Then I'll redeem You in my hallucination; Suggest this is a disease even you haven't cured - I'll make it grow, I'll make them grow These morbid memories that echo between you and I… They make me cry. Lamentably Such a sinister revelation, Has tethered my fain

Chemotherapy
I see her through the window Withered and alone, I suppose a widow She blends into the background Can't smudge that frown from her face Eyes open or closed No-one knows the pain No-one needs to know she's sane Disturbed by her dreams As she is devoured by deformity She curses her conformity To her determination To reserve and acceptance To lonely repentance Seeming asleep She lets her hand creep To an icy cheek The monotony of her sombre routine; Envy, agony, resolve and scream She stares into the night Imagines, had she led a different life… Then submits to a convulsion A throb of terror In error They have condemned h

Queen of Hearts
Do I press the right buttons? Play the good cards? Queen of hearts Still beating Now eating, devouring the sympathy and synergy of yet another lover And another and another Await the end of the trend in trepidation Sour lips, bitter words entice elation Once again, change at the station A magnificent façade All of those lies When amazing descends into franchise Clutching the dice I sob at the conclusion Striking songs and a pithy reflection Of unformed thoughts and new perception Borne from recollection The burning idol on my horizon Goes on; 'Where's the catch? 'Does it all stay the same into the next act?' In recital an

'It's Complicated'.
Long time since I've been active on here. Might just use it as showcase for scribblings again...

Okay okay! Inspired by my fab comic creating friend ~EtheringtonBrothers (https://www.deviantart.com/etheringtonbrothers) and the ridiculously talented tracyjb (https://www.deviantart.com/tracyjb) I am going to start posting the pages of the new webcomic, 'The Broken Mirror', that I am creating in collaboration with :iconjjnaas: here on my DeviantArt, in the hope it might get some more of you to go out to the site and check out JJ's silly-gorgeous art and my ah...my writing. It's not very far in yet, folks, but I can promise this story is going to be an absolutely action packed adventure, full of twists and turns the likes of which you'd never expect and characters that hopefully, if I get it right, you'll fall in love
Go Forth and Blog!
Sometimes, I think it might suit me to be just that little bit more emo...then I would perhaps make some use of all of the journals that I seem to have inadvertently registered for at numerous stops during my trek across the web. Alas, nay, I just forget about them. Right, as to the point to this post: I read an article on the Amnesty International website yesterday regarding an upcoming review of freedom of expression on the internet, which is greatly restricted in many countries - there's an article and a petition here: http://irrepressible.info/ - so, do support the cause; go along and sign it, as well as adding a similar note in your own

I'm so sorry Ellie. I haven't been checking my deviantart for ages..
Thank you soooo much. That means a lot to me especially coming from you. and i like how you put it haha "shattered prose". nice..

And yes I do think James McAvoy is hot. I loved him in The Last King of Scotland. Fantastic stuff. he's not hot in that conventional way though. he's got that wiry, witty guy attractiveness about him.

btw do give me your landline and mobile number there. one of these days i may just ring you.

hugs,
Naz

I just found the comic today. I had to stop a few times, because the pages pulled up some tough emotions for me. But I'll be back- no doubt about that.
