The beast

I have a beast within my head
He hews my heart I wish him dead
He turns my passions into pain
A mocking echo of loves refrain
He defiles my tender dreams
Turning whispers into screams
I fear to enter filled with dread
I have a beast within my head

My passion leaked through every pore
Through rents inflicted by his wick...

depressionself doubtself-knowledge


It’s easy to give in to being depressed
To savour life’s taste and yet feel second best
To challenge yourself to win the prize

The slightest of movements almost like a wisp of air it silently flutters ,briefly ,...

Served by the Slice

served by the slice  

this body, cut through in the redesign for a different life,

whistles a frayed remembrance leaving naught but remnants

when falling for the suicidal hiatus of a tethered tale


in these days, of the child’s exultation, sing your song

as a lyrical dog chases damsons and damsels and the first and

furriest flavour the dustiest corpse of trees; dark...
