Literature
Fire
The darkness is given a face
And immediately
Any remaining hope
That might have been
Clinging to my bones
Is sucked into
The belly of the beast
How could I stand
Against this monster
All I look for now is escape
No hope for a brighter day
I imagine the blade
Slicing across pale flesh
But something deep and inert
Staves me from action
Rather
I remain in the abyss
An empty machine
Living off the
Consistency of pain;
He is a trustworthy friend.
This is what life
Is reduced to
Dust returns to dust
Before even the soul has left
It’s earthly domain
Every muscle, each nerve
Screams in protest
Against my very existence,
My essence
Shakes in revulsion
To the shrivelled husk
It has become
Is there an antidote
To this outworking destruction
A vaccine
Against the corruption of my soul
Something to bind together
These dust particles
Which constitute my being
A source
They can cling to?
Like sand
My form is compromised,
The essence of the shadow
Stands apart from the design,
Imperfect

Dry
A desolate place
Deep within
With living forests on either side,
And yet
I’m drawn to the desolation
And return to the desert,
Keeping the forest always behind me.
I abandon life and acceptance
For the strangeness of desert,
To investigate its purpose.
I demand reconciliation between desert and forest
Rather than allowing what already is to remain.
Acceptance.
I walk deeper into desert,
Bound to loose my way
As I explore the desolation.
Knowing the Why and the How
Was never my job to begin with.
There is only One
Who can search this inner place
And bring redemption.
He creates life
In place of Death,
All I need do
Is trust

Literature
Glimpse
A moment behind the veil,
A glimpse
At what could have been,
Memory and dream collide,
Traces of heartache resonate
Through every sacred place.
Mundane tasks
Turned into a desperate plea
Just to see your face,
Just to hear your voice,
Just to hold you close
And know you are well
In your new home
Yet as quickly as
The curtain had blown open,
Just as quickly
It flutters shut once again
I’ll find a way
To rip the curtains
From the wall
I’m coming
Wait for me

Cycle
Radiant blue,
The rush of waves
Overwhelming the shore
The heat,
Like a comforting blanket
Lies heavy in the air
Home,
Resting here it seems as though
The light will never fade,
Joy and peace
Never end
The sun hides its face
From the ocean’s view
Disappears
Without apology
The darkness swallows
Everything
The sun left behind
Always returning
To have the last word
With the sun’s absence
There is nothing that stands between us
And the ravenous abyss
The air grows cold,
Frigid,
Comfort removed
Without hesitation
Welcome in the real world
Welcome in what was once
Hidden behind a smile
As if mere ignorance could stand
Against the Legion
The waves echo the dark,
The same gluttony reflected
On the ocean’s surface
Outstretched fingers
Claw up the shoreline
Closer and closer,
Ever in pursuit
Frozen in this place
It seems as though
The darkness
Will never dissipate
The fear
Never cease
Endless cycle,
Darkness and light
When will the carousel
Come to a rest,
The uncertainty

Literature
Fight
Whittle down
The panic
Whittle away
The fear
Find the centre
The core
Bite into it
Ravage it
Give it no quarter
No reprieve
The battle
Long
The road
Uncertain
Pushing on to find
Something better
Than the death that taints
All I've ever known
Only God knows
The battle's end
Can hope be found
Anywhere else
But beyond the grave

Machine
A monotonous hum,

                                                                          Tick,
                                                                                    Tock
                                                                          Inhale,

Memory
Clanking dishes
Laughter
Smells of a forgotten time
Vibrancy and joy
Life seeps out
As encroaching solitude
Saturates the air
Suffocates
Every cherished thing
Leaving just you.

Anxiety
From afar
My body is still,
Smooth and calm
Uncover the layers of padding,
Self denial and ignorance
To find my bones are
Jittering bugs
My stomach
Wringing itself out
Like laundry hung to dry
I pump bleach
Through my veins
Knowing it
Will never be enough

Time
The picture is blurring;
Home, love, family.
In enters death.
