Warlocks Warning – Synopsis

I had a dream of late, of a man who came to the village of my people. He appeared quiet, reserved, and shy. Within his possession was a silver pipe of which many proclaimed he would play the most angelic of music, and win the hearts of many a woman, and the regard of many […]

Lost

Life, it goes in circles as I try to catch it. Its face is happy yet violently angry too. It temps me with a coyish beckoning and as I come close, it bites and screams pushing me away and the chase starts again. Why do I chase such a two faced thing you ask. It […]

I was clearly in a very strange place when writing this piece. Walking down the steps to the ground floor, of my single level caravan, I folded my arms to greet the old day. I hurriedly pulled off my shoes that I had worn all my life and yanked the cat’s tail that tickled my […]

Mine(d)

Reflection on Familiar Skies

There are times when the familiar cold hand reaches out to me, accompanied by a darkness in the skies of my mind. Like the disruptive friend who just doesn’t seem to get the hint, no matter how blunt you make it, or maybe it is more like the uncomfortable yet obligatory visit of your parents […]

Shaking the Black

Sometimes, like today, the black manages to get a hand on me. Like a weight, I feel sluggish and heavy. I find myself just listening to my breathing. The rise and fall of my chest. A cloud fogs the back of my mind, making it hard to see. I feel temperatures with more sensitivity than […]
