‘Weathered’

Faded portions of life emerge, weathered, feint, standing out like some blemish upon a sun soaked skin browned from exposure to its harsh rays. Like denim. Those jeans that were a little snug in the beginning but then shaped around you into a comfortable hug...and you love them...those faded jeans. Because they fit you. They…

‘On The Edge’

He majored in heartache A hopeless recluse Every thought hovering between a pill and a noose Sentenced himself to live a life of solitude Scarred so far through this was his only attitude So he woke another day warmed some coffee in a pot, poured a wee bit of whisky and downed another shot, Filled the…

‘Settling the Score’

A dream machine A clean machine Chrome gleaming Gorgeous lines sweeping Windscreen revealing White hot anger searing Tyres-a-screaming Disaster she's scheming Remedy for cheating Revenge quickly feeding On a corner spearing Over a cliff driving To safety she's diving Dream machine crashing His baby smashing Evil smile beaming Satisfaction revealing She's done for the evening…

‘Quip Queen’

She majored in sarcasm nobody could match her, A legend in her classrooms some lived just to watch her, Hit the ears that would listen with the sharpest of humour, There were many who tried but nobody could be cooler, Pulled a smile and a laugh from the toughest of tutors, And took care to…

‘Dark Sea’

Thorns twist napalm explodes violently, negativity burning bright upon the surface of a barren sea, Still...inky blue... quiet in the darkness of night, resplendent with flames dissolving into dark distance but here, igniting, forcefully parting blackness, clouds hover thick above threatening a storm, When did the  glow of sunrise forfeit its right to be present?…

‘Rest!’

Its Sunday. And for most of us that means rest. And I know that for others there is a nagging necessity brought on by life and circumstance that requires working 7-day weeks and 18 hour days. And that's okay, just as long as you have balance and you don't spend too many days, weeks or…

‘Its Just a Book’

I hear it from time to time, "The Bible was written by humans, how can you buy all that stuff?" I hear you. And in all sincerity, yes, the Bible was written by humans. For all intents and purposes the Bible is a book penned by people like you and me, who delivered accounts of…

‘Breaking The Rules’

Oscar woke again, stirred by the golden light pushing through the gaps around his door standing ajar. He looked up at the Lightning McQueen wall clock staring back at him before taking in the atmosphere around him. He had never seen 1am before. It didn't look like much. Same as 10pm, but quieter. His little…

‘Apocalyptic Click’

There was a day not so long ago, when only young people could be blamed for being aloof and distant. Lost to some techno-world, they forego the physical and it seems to take a backseat in favour of finger exertion used to communicate with someone far away, instead of living in the here and now.…

‘Equals’

Maidens tear up precedents, portions of existence accepted, no longer reticent, reserved, enslaved or shackled to venomous perceptions, limitations, errors of past patriarchy threatening to march on through time unhindered until confronted in full on conflict by those crying out for a change. They are destructively constructive, they ruin contrived notions destined for calamitous results,…
