Empty

Breathing feels pointless,

Everything you love ripped away from you.

In a string of thoughtless words,

Lies that bare little resemblance to the truth.

I guess some people have to believe what they have to believe.

Please Let the Walls Come Down

You got a wall built so high. Keeping people out, protecting yourself from feeling too much or getting too hurt. I know you don’t need to worry about protecting yourself from me but clearly right now you do. So I swear I’m going to grab every tool I can find to chip away at the stone, remove each brick by hand, one by one if I have to for as ever long as it takes. Feck I’ll even resort to dynamite if I must. Whatever it takes to reach that heart again I’m going to do it because you’ve already taken mine, merged them somehow and now I need to get it back. Not to steal it away or break it apart but to be complete again and watch it grow with you.

I am already yours. Please don’t keep pushing me away, I can’t go anywhere. After all you have my heart!

Castle of Pain

Emptiness surrounds a hollow place that once teamed with life.

Where there was once energy and laughter there is now only fierce decay.

Intense, impassioned conversations that once took just a few minutes

Now linger fractious for what can seem like hours.

Walls are erected brick by brick, the reinforced stone barriers defending the precious darkness within.

I fight hard with every weapon to break through, trying to cast a stray ray of light to ignite the dried up embers in waiting.

Sometimes at night, cracks form within the ice that encase the cold deserted battlements,

Only to freeze once again in the dawn sunlight of each new day.

A deep loneliness wells inside, overwhelming all that which dares to be good.

An impassioned healer in desperate need of healing herself.

Fears of being hurt forces the fragile secrets to stay safely locked inside.

Vulnerability is no option, the resulting pain just kills too much.

Until the strength is found to lower the drawbridge, life will never truly be lived again.

A clipped winged Angel, resting wearily in the darkness, too scared to free its crying soul.

Journey Through a Dream

Breathe a little deeper, feel the emptiness subside

Sleep a little sweeter, creep inside the great divide

Breaking with reality, your consciousness in release

A dream world nominee, and a fragile mind at peace

Hiding in the corners, as your sanity’s undone

Lost amongst the mourners, a vacant faced someone

Eating at your soul, tearing your insides

Unsure about your role, the tortured images misguides

The truth is often clouded, the true meaning never seen

Secrets deeply shrouded, within the violence of the dream

Colours grey but understood, your senses overblown

A vision screaming out in blood, as you wake up all alone

Angels Words

ANGELS WORDS

A realm of tiny voices spear you from all directions,

Feeding doubts and anxiety, an escalation of madness.

A path once clear seems now hopelessly complex.

Everyone wants, everyone takes, what about you?

A feint in the dark for something to reach out too.

A drive for something better.

Can it be that anyone really cares for you, the things you need?

You doubt all those around you, clawing for a piece.

Those allies you once cared for now slowly ushered away.

Who to trust?

Who to care for?

Will anyone stand the course?

Being alone is so much easier, no need to care, only be.

With eyes closed and heart crated safely you take the leap.

Stretching your fear to the brink of a righteous dare.

*****

A lone voice calls out.

Truth from beyond.

Follow the angels words.

He will guide you home.

Right well, think it’s fair to say I’ve taken just a little bit of a break from blogging over the last couple of years but exciting times are upon us once more and the need to write and generally waffle seems to be back in abundance.

Anyway the intention is that I’ll be adding some new content on here again in the coming weeks, expect it to be a little dark, possibly a little emotional at times to but that’s the way life is at times I guess.

As well as writing my musings on here following the Completion of ‘The Masonic Plague’ finally, and a few busy months of editing. Me and co-writer extraordinaire Anthony D Redden have decided to give the book its own page to allow you to follow us, help us and generally have a good waffle with us as we embark on the torturous journey of trying to get the blasted thing published.

So please follow us on our new page ‘The Masonic Plague’ and we look forward to receiving all your questions, queries, critique and we invite you to share a laugh or two with us on our journey as it’s sure to have some ups and downs for sure.

Speak to you all again soon.

Lost to the Grey

Lost to the Grey

The grey sea drags me under,
Flailing limbs fight out under a facade of deceptive calmness
I shan’t prevail
My will seeping beneath the solemn waves
Embracing the anticipation that all may soon be still
No heart or soul left to lose
Long decayed to the dust that shall soon be washed away
Conscious thoughts breaking away overpowering guilt tainting the moment
As I let myself let go into the suductive grey darkness
May this greatest of sins be finally washed away
