there is no such thing as
forever,

endless quivers of eyelashes
pervaded by scenes of
broken glass and
fragile glances

halted and sweltering
under climate change.

(melting as we dance
next to the sun, dying
as we breathe in the
moons glare and breaking)

countlessly breaking and
bending until lovers
are just strangers staring
at the end of forever;

time is a man made construction.

there is a strength,

how now, the tears
fall from the stars and
the captured become

doused in bravery.

(where are the cowards,
with tongues of silver
lagging over crooked
stones and guarded
coves)

there is a weakness,

there are broken bones
and graphite stuttering
over fingertips. concave,

ribs crumble in the dirt
of our victors;

there is a strength.

asphyxiated,

we stand, running on pure
bliss that our hearts don’t
bleed and beat like empty

drums (i followed my shadow
into the darkness,

i followed you, coward
to where you took
my soul)

buried under the sand,
buried under the concrete,
tears are cracking the
fissures and locking

elbows into violent
submission. feeling the
powder and the bruises
of you ripping this skeleton
apart,

with bare hands( with
swollen tongues.

would you stand, on fences
of silk and feet balanced on
uncertainty until the cannons
chimed?

until your lips turned blue in
the sulphur and your eyes
flickered in response to your
stuttering heart?

watch for the demons, the
people with fears taunting them,
watch for the ghouls tearing
themselves out of blemished skin

and watch for me, lover, boy
of ebony and ivory. you have
this burdened heart as i have
yours and they dance in the pale light

but would you wait, love;
will you wait for me?

incarnate, the lungs of devils
and demons of frozen underworlds
and parallel dimensions bleed,

breathing in fire and choking
on the dust of their greying
bones. gone, the earth moves
from colour to bleak.

look harder, for the stars that
shine at dusk whilst the gods
make their way home. whilst
jupiter hides behind the moon.

hush, darling child of eve and
hercules, the shadows are
coming for you and you must
be bold.

Hello World!

So this is my very first post of my shiny, bit of everything blog. Things are very exciting. I write, do, think a whole range of things. Poetry can be found here and here. I phototake and that can be found here – That I do not update regularly enough!  I also write as a freelancer and I can be found here and here. I do lots of other bits and pieces that shall appear here in the future!
