It was a cold miserable morning. The weather’s ice cold winds melted into my bones, yet I hadn’t even left the house. The rain fell all night without any hint of a cozy undertone. The city was crowded with dreamless faces and deathly stares. The shelters were shoulder to shoulder with slow moving pedestrians that... Continue Reading →
Shadows and Shame
The excitements builds rapidly in the invisible space between my lungs and my throat. It’s so powerful that my fingers start to tremble and I'm forced to close my eyes tight. Please, please let this feeling pass! I have friends who struggle with real addictions. I watch them relapse into substances and thank God I’m... Continue Reading →
He Makes Us Laugh !
The clown’s mask drips down his cheeks, but he has no face paint on. Sitting under a lamp in the corner of a lonely street his mind wanders. The waters rise from his heart to his head, making it impossible to get up and walk home. This man, this, ‘clown’, spends his time exchanging laughter... Continue Reading →
Nightmare – The Tree
A dead tree alone in a dessert. Burnt, it’s branches claw at the sky. Slowly, the scene tilts. The sky now below, the dessert above. The tree hangs like a gothic chandelier.
You don’t know what it’s like, do you dear reader? It’s horrible! For happiness to be completely dependent on an entity separate from ourselves is torture. I was built to transform emotion into music, yet on my own I’m nothing. I’m a tool; rusting in the corner of an old garage.

A revery passage to the other side, A moment’s mortality magnified. They built a castle by ocean spray, Worth more in time when washed away. Beneath, or within, the expanse of... Continue Reading →
I ventured deep inside a cave. Down into the warmth of the earth. Into a place where the sounds of the surface are left behind. It’s beautiful. The rocks were magnificent. Each different formation had a name, ‘Actors on a stage’ or ‘The father of federation’, who faced the only exit. But these were young... Continue Reading →
An angel and devil appear on a man’s shoulders. We have all seen this before. Right verse wrong. Good verse evil. But, It is not that simple, is it? It’s not good vs evil. More accurately, It would be closer to the truth to say evil vs not-so-evil; Evil vs man. A young man sits... Continue Reading →
“Be careful, it’s quite slippery.” “I will. You taking photos?” “Yeah, you?” “Nah, i’m hoping to see a ghost.” The man’s camera flash echoed through the tunnel. “Oh?” “Yeah, I’ve been here before, but didn’t see anything. How long have you been in here?” “I only just arrived.” The abandoned train line was still and... Continue Reading →
Reflection Distorts Desired Delusions
I lay awake as the silence takes hold. It gets louder and louder. I beg for a distraction. Reflection distorts desired delusions. What time is is? I’ll check my phone. I’ll check my notifications. I’ll check my newsfeed. I’ll check my email. I’ll check out. My mind is a rapid when it should be a... Continue Reading →
