Past half past ten.

How my body can be so empty and my head be so full.
I don't understand at all.
I'm not well and I'm feeling a fool.
And I haven't the strength to call.

Dear Drew, Lettrs staff & readers of my writing

Thank you for all your likes & feedback, they are greatly received.

I'm afraid I struggle to write thank you in the comments area after feedback, I don't know why, so I thought I'd write this Letter.

You all have my highest respect for your work.

It's nothing short of amazing how Lettrs has grown and I'm proud to be a part of this wonderful community.

Thank you all.

Much love & respect

The Memory.

You are not but a ghost.
It is time for you to rest.
The hour has past when you could wait behind any door ready to strike fear into my day, or howl all night from under my pillow.
Rest now.
As with a vengeance you cling, screaming for your pains to be heard, your power has faded and with ease disregarded. Like morning wind.
You haunt me no longer.
Rest now.
There is nothing of reality in you.
I have but the briefest of a gaze at your shape, your face holds no detail.
What was then is not what is now.
Rest.

The Slip

2pm Christmas day.

All the dinner on the table.

Whilst fetching the gravy boat and a juice bottle for the baby.
She would slip on a toy car and receive a fatal blow to the head from a radiator.

He would be run over by a passing car as she was placed in the ambulance breaking his neck.

Their three children, with a neighbour in the doorway, would look on with incredulous terror wishing in tears as strangers come and go.

Tell me about your problems

KIDS.

Shit on the walls

Shit on the floors

Shit on the windows

Shit on the doors

Shit on the handles

Shit on the stairs

Shit on the tables

Shit on the chairs

Shit in the shower

Shit in the sinks

Shit in the toilet

And that shit stinks

Shit in the bed

Shit in the closet

There ain't much around kids

Without shit on it.

Shit and more shit

All over the place

And they just stand there smiling

With shit on their face

Hope Falls

Alone I write
The hour is late
I wait

Half a lifetime has passed and I feel no safer than when I were a younger man

All the mistakes I've made visit me now in this midlife, as if a taxcollector that would cross my threshold without so much as a knock of the door demanding payment

None so great as those of love

It is said that only the good die young. If this is to be so, I feel I may be around long enough to concern the mountains

The medals of my accomplishments are indeed grand, some shining brightly, but they do not hold equal weight with that of the loss of the fallen

With memories pinned to my chest and the rusted clockwork of my mind, I strive to sculpture possib...

BARGAIN BASEMENT

You want it?

You got it.

Whatever you need

If it's there

And you find it

Then tuck in with greed

You're welcome to all

Go ahead

you can have it

Holding onto that stuff

Was my very worst habit.

Help yourself

It's all yours

100% off

I've opened the doors

So scoffers can scoff.

I'm willing and ready

To empty out me

You want it?

You got it

Everything's free.

Just grab what you like

Whatever you see

I'm done with it all

Yours sincerely

Dead Handle

One day
It was there
Filled with plausibility

Then a crack
Within an action
The world fell violently

There's no more time
The air has gone
Not a leaf on any tree

Backs will turn
When hands reach out
To eyes that no longer see

Smiling casually

JEFF

I walked into a room today
And found a good man had gone away
All he had was just one day
How grateful for that he was

He was short but he stood tall
Man he definitely done it all
Now and then I would give him a call
And I'll never forget because

Chorus

I met him in his reality
I remember things he would say to me
As he sat in a chair so comfortably
A chair that he had earned

He'd sit and talk about his day
In a grateful happy friendly way
Always knowing he was there to stay
With all the things that he had learned

An old man of twenty years or more
Who remembered walking through the door
He knew what he had done it for
It was the best that he could do

With a cookie and a cup of...

Self resentment

I'm angry with you
Who me?
Yes you
But I am you and I'm angry too

I'm angry with you
All the things that you do

I'm angry with him
I feel the same
He is the one that deserves the blame
It cannot be me
So obviously

He's angry with us?
About all this fuss
How dare he be so angry with me
So obviously
It cannot be me

I'm angry at you
What now did I do?
It's them I say
With that telling off way
Angry with us day after day

You're angry with me, I'm angry at you
What's wrong with all of the things I do?
I've watched and seen you do them too
So obviously
It's you not me

Quite possibly, I think you'll find
You may have gone and lost your mind
But I am you and I am sane...

Perseverance

Just you play your little song Sam

And she might just come along Sam

You been thinking about to go
Cos your feeling kinda low
With your head deep in the sand
Don't you still your jumping hand
Or else she may not hear you call

Don't allow yourself to frown Sam

Your guitar never let you down Sam

Run your hands across the strings
Singing what the music brings
Ya gotta keep it nice and tight
Play all through the day and night
And then she may just hear you call

Now there's nobody around Sam

Ain't no-one to hear your sound Sam

So you got up out your chair
Ain't no point in staying there
Laid your guitar on the floor
Just as a knocking at the door
She said I think I heard ...

I could say I Love her

But you would need to be specific when asking me that question

I love looking at her

I love sizing up how I'm going to take her down and have my way with her body

I love the moment of her awareness when she finds need for defence and in the same moment realising she has none

I love the look of concern on her face as she lowers to her knees

I love the sound of her choking, heaving and breathing while I stretch and smile at my play

I love listening for the sound of water when she's gone to far and the colour of her face right before the look of resignation into readiness

I love pulling her hair and forcing her down, dragging her to the most suitable place of my...

Why

I live through life collecting scars

While my dreams reside among the stars

Searching for a home I'll never find

Seeking others of my kind

Instead I find I walk away

From all the comfort of yesterday

Incredulous at the place I'm in

Burnt by lust and cut by sin

Pain is but a chain to bare

Desensitized and losing care

My memories becoming rotten

A smile or laugh long forgotten

I guess at life I'm bound to lose

Through all the different ways I choose

One thing I will before I die

Is say I Love You
And Kiss
My World
Goodbye x

Sometimes it's better not to seek

Wait

Remain still and silent

Watch

Cover yourself

Listen

Breathe slow

Count

When your moment draws closer

Old Pal

All my true friends are dead.

They have been for many years now.

I have often, or I should say mostly, thought only of the good times and the solidarity of being in our group instead of the manner in which they died.
I am one of two that made it over the age of thirty.

We traded our lives for each other on a daily basis for the security that someone was always at our backs no matter what.

I miss that.

I heard a long forgotten song the other day that brought my world crashing down in front of me.
I think it all finally hit home....
I'll never see them again.

I've been running around it seems, trying to find that purity elsewhere in life. In some cases I believed that I had but ...

CRY

Beg me

Scream in agony for the loss you yourself manufactured.

You may hear but can never listen

Fall into the category of the near forgotten

I class thee a fool for your attempts at anger

See if your own wrath will aid you, or eat you alive without mercy

The interpretation of words is your specialty

Then nothing but a ringing in the ears alongside immortal confusion

Whistle, sing, shout and lie just to convince yourself that you were right all along

Deluded are you to think of my death

The Reaper knows not where to carry me, nor does he want to

You, acutely aware that I spare you, will fight any lesser persons to try and persuade me of your power

You have none of any not...

AM I THE FOOL

Why do I get hurt so much?

I find beauty in every touch

A look, a smile, a laugh & such

Why oh why do I hurt so much?

Every time I find a lie

It's like my heart begins to die

I should just shake my head and sigh

Instead my soul just runs to cry

I've been in this place before

It's me that will open the door

Head first I'm knocked down to the floor

And yet I still return for more

I wish so much just to be free

To live in peace with others and me

But it seems that is not meant to be

At least not as far as I can see

I guess I don't know another way

Than to live, love and survive the day

Hoping everything will be ok

Knowing that I will always say

Why do ...

So now what?

I'll confess my arrogance.
These rocks seemed to be behind me most of the way, now it looks as if they were my intended destination.

My injuries are not healing, my thinking is consumed by a fog I acquired from a storm many days back and my courage to continue wavers for I fear I may lack the will to stand.

I still have weaponry but I lack armour.
Previous encounters have thrust at my defences so vigorously I am lucky to have the rags I wear.
As for my offensive arsenal, I carry a whole sack of demolition charges and one small but sharp knife.
Many times have I contemplated a quick shot to the throat with that little blade, with a sharp pull to be certain, kill the man tha...

OLD

Lost in a smokey haze
I look to my hands but there is no rope
Only scars
A quick breath as a low flying memory tries to cut me
Suffocating becomes my primary concern
And then a wish

Never again is the razor I use
So sharp it can cut a man's soul
Bandaged in I'm Sorry
Still blood can always be seen through

Sounds alert me to attention but why I do not know
I suppose something can be said about keeping silent
Seems yesterday was tomorrow
The Joy forgot the words and nobody really sang

The plan is the right way to go
Never-ending-ness
The ploy of heartbeats foil anyone's idea of sliding under
Until it is time

Will they be ok?
Isn't that the real fear of death?

We won't know when w...

Grab a hold

Take two steps and you're flying.

Run and you hit the ground hard.

Stare as long as you dare at your reflection, you will not see reality.

Working hard to find restlessness?

There are three choices:
Fear
Love
Death

Think of everything and do nothing.

Do it all and lose your mind.

Try not to break your heart.

Beauty is a venomous serpent.
