Biography

My name is James. I live in Sunny Southend in Essex. I am not precious or complicated about my writing, I enjoy, I do it, some of it is not great, occasionally it hits the spot. Hope you enjoy - I would very much like to get into performance poetry. Feel free to add me on facebook using my e mail. James

Samples

Not Full Fat I need... Well what do I need? Those, without desire invade, well, sometimes they invade Bored easily... Life but not full fat a version which is light I need... Well how can answer that It is a game of monopoly and guess who is the Top Hat? Snakes and ladders Felt and glue Let's pretend and play that is never true I need... Who knows what... Find me the recipe of life and bring me a pot Remember this sarcastic humour Will be a parting shot Monday 10th January 2011 Behind the Faces Behind the faces The smiles Behind the clothes and personality expressed Wearing suits Wearing a dress We are all people With our needs We are not so different in how we bleed The front is there From risqué joke To a loving stare From one of a million To nothing else compares Tell me now, what would you rather share The life of Riley Or how we part our hair Do we do this for long Here for moments Then so suddenly, gone Monday 10th January 2011 Am I a Puzzle? Am I just a puzzle not yet solved a story picture book not yet told Am I in a box with, a picture on its lid Is someone counting to a hundred have I already hid? Here I am with arms full of gifts and a head full of flaws Is life just corridors and it's a case of opening the right doors Am i just a puzzle of a landscape not yet grown and am I just a future not yet known Thursday 13th January 2011

Hi JAmes, re 'Portrait of a Woman' Constructive and helpful feedback James, thank you. Admittedly the 'Manchester ending' is an incongruity in this piece but one I think adds mystery. As to the ending, glad you felt the story aspect. Winston
