Society thrusts their chains onto the unspoilt

You are on a tight rope, do you get it? I really don’t think you do, Each cautiously placed step could be your last You better hope that rope sticks like glue. The choice was yours, at sixteen, Youth pulsing through your blood you were asked to choose, Body not finished growing mind still caged…

Deeply embedded wrinkles

You walk carelessly Each step a bouncing and heartfelt skip, That is until a pebble is unearthed Causing your form to trip. Adrenaline and youth surging You decide to push on, However, muscles start to strain But you are determined to see the red of the dawn. A storm of ice and fire hits Itching…

A note carried by waves

A note carried by waves. The water shivers With the weight of the bottle, Surface bubbling Eager to throttle. A note carried by waves. Saltwater licking the glass Tounge savouring the taste, The sea swirls Currents beginning the chase. A note carried by waves. The storm begins to brew Ocean angry to read, Words fighting…

The dance of my prey

Their eyes skitter as they sway. Oh how they glow As I watch them dance, Eager to taste If given the chance. Their eyes skitter as they sway. The scent of sweat A delicate array, I prowl closer Eager to choose my prey. Their eyes skitter as they sway. Juices dripping The noise akin to…

Alone he watches

His hand rests against the cool glass of the window. The sun streaks in through shards of light, They ease through his curtains Aiming for a body to smite. His hand rests against the cool glass of the window. He can slightly hear laughter from outside, Inching closer he closes his eyes Until the noise…

I am lost in a dark that shudders

I sit alone in the dark. Perhaps once there were others, Faintly I remember their heat The warmth of my long-lost brothers. I sit alone in the dark. My body has frozen into the walls, Limbs unmoving my eyelashes barely twitch I listen intently for their calls. I sit alone in the dark. I know…

The battle cry of the seagulls

A belly full of giggles. Her mother grasped her hand, Pulling her along But her feet dig into the sand. A belly full of giggles. The seagulls call an endless cry, Laughing, she copies their song Her arms twirling high in the sky. A belly full of giggles. The sun beats down on​ the ground,…
