I wrote this earlier as a response to a word prompt, thought I would share it here see how my fellow Lettrists dance or not to the meter and rhyme. :)


It's soul was dark
No heart to beat
Devouring life
Yet no deceit,
Made no attempt
To hide its goal
In all it killed
Yet still not whole,
It turned on us
The human race
Our doom was sealed
There'd be no trace,
When it arrived
Our only toll,
Oblivion
In the Black Hole.

P.S The word was 'Oblivion', yeah I know you were wondering!

As I woke from a dream in the early hours of this morning, these words were forming inside my mind. Driven by love or perhaps something much more, I write them here, for you.


My heart it makes
My mind to spin,
Feelings of love
So strong within.

I never asked
To feel this way'
But now I do
Every day.

Silently crept
Caught me off guard,
Embraced my soul
Holding it hard.

One was unsure
Nut now I know,
You are the one
I can't let go.

All that I dreamed
And so much more,
Filling my world
Closing past's door.

Passion ignites
Fire now burns,
Eternal Flames
New future turns.

You are my life
Making me whole,
Two become one
Heaven we stole.

But it's no ...

Seems my mind wants to share another one which is about an old friend we all share in life.

You don't need to knock
As no door holds you back
My last breath taken
As you stand there in black
Stood in your presence
As your scythe resonates
To lead me away
As you know what awaits
Yet there is no fear
As you've shed that from me
But its so much more
As you've changed all I'll be
Yet now I feel sad
As eternal you breathe
To never find peace
As you help us achieve.

Thank you Death, old friend.

I see
My whole world
Wrapped in heaven
In you unfurled,
Beauty
Sunshine bright
Sunrise, sunset
My loving night
Angel
Who fills my soul
Your my life's breath
That makes me whole,
Endless
Love so pure I see
In your arms forever
Is where I want t be.

Laying down
Mind to sleep
Sweet dreams
Of you to keep,
In my heart
You warm my soul
You are that
Which makes me whole,
From sunrise
Until sunset
Beautiful moments
I'll never forget,
Moonbeam kisses
Your beauty bright
No work of art
A better sight,
In your soul
True magic shines
Warms the world
Paradise defines,
You moved the dark
And found my love
For your the one
My Angel above,
To the future
With you I look
A life together
Writes a happy book!

In another writing challenge I was given, Chocolate, Water, Kite, Picture Frame and Curtain. The following is the short story I wrote using these five random words, I hope you enjoy!


Chicalicalee was a great actor, in the world of confectionery the best there ever was. When the curtain would fall upon what ever play he was acting in the crowd would go completely bananas. Oh he loved the adoration, the standing ovations, the great reviews he got within the local paper, the “Sweet Wrapper”. Everyone loved the chocolate teddy but inside he was so very sad that he would, when alone, often sit and cry tears of despair.

As he would tell those closest to him, the problem with being made o...

Dear Death,

I have recently found myself becoming curious over you and your existence. Mot that you don't exist but questions about who you are, your role in the Universe. If indeed you are bound to our Universe at all that is. We all hear the phrase "God's Plan" here but is it?

My mind wonders do you determine when a living thing is to be released and it's soul given over to God, or are you simply doing God's bidding? If so then the image I have of the "sands of time" being in your procession disappears. Destroys the idea that you are the one who sets out what time a life has to exist, in essence why do you need to be? What function would you play in the Universe if this were the...

I wrote this today for my beautiful muse, she is just the most amazing woman I have ever met and have in my life.


In the dark
You are my light
Warm sunshine
Shines so bright
My time is yours
My heart is to
There is no clock
In loving you
Seconds, hours
Minutes, days
Eternally
My soul yours stays
Time stands still
Around us two
Never to I want
To be apart from you!

Wrote this for my Beautiful muse today as she was feeling sad.

You came into my life
Warm sunshine
In your souls smile,
Beauty abound
Inside and out
My Egypt's Nile,
The waters of you
Flow so strong
Into my every heart beat,
My ocean
No horizon
Limitless feelings meet,
Loneliness vanquished
Your presence
My Angel above,
Through you
I've found
My one true love.

I wrote this just now for a non English friend to make a point about the use of "U". It started as a two line joke but became this short Fairy Tale. Comments always welcome,!!

Once upon a time in the land called Alphabet lived a poor working vowel, her name, "U". Working ever so hard to play her role and add to the beauty of the words world around her. But she was so abused, mistreated by her sisters "A, E, I", and her oppressive oldest sibling, "O". Undaunted though, our unsung heroine went about her big hearted generosity, she gave us "Up" when we are feeling down, gives us "hUgs" when we need comfort, as vowels went she was unique. Yet she would find herself left of the invites for all t...

I was told of a story about a woman who was a victim of the current Earthquakes in the Philippines. I write the following based on what I heard as I think it is a testament to all of us about never giving up our belief, our faith in life. I only hope I have done justice to such a heart wrenching moment?


Out in the city
Shopping away
How could she know
So tragic this day?
Building it shook
Out of the blue
Scared and bewildered
Didn't know what to do.
Panic around her
Chaos ensued
Shelves were falling
Scattering food.
Walls and the ceiling
Crumbled the strain
All of a sudden
Her head felt the pain.
Struck by the rubble
She fell to the floor
Her world it went dark
Cons...

I wanted to express how the feeling feels in words, this is what my heart and soul had my mind create?


You are and were
My one true dream
Before even we met
In hope's moonbeam,
Such beautiful light
That time would bring
A symphony stirring
Whose music would sing,
Harmony to my heart
Born the true love I feel
Reverie of an Angel
Now your beauty stands real
Red rose in life's garden
Only one there that grew
Evokes all my emotions
That wilt solely to you,
No other heavens flower
Share such petals of grace
In my soul's Universe
Only your sweet blossoms face,
My loves waters flow
Just your roots to consume
Its one purpose in life,
To see your happiness blooms.

Dreams of love
Shattered
Heart cries
Hopes broke
Future battered,
Words uttered
Innocent
She's not to blame
Loves hard
Hurt not meant,
She was the one
Soul knew
But it takes two
Mind knows
There's nothing you can do.

Inspired by the amazing beauty of my life's one true muse.

My angel
Of beauty pure
Before me
Shines so demure
Perfection
Of my dreams
My love
Is hers in reams
Complete
Without limit
From my heart
Only she does fill it
She's the one
I've waited for
Now my soul
Need search no more.

Only truth I've found,
Life's desire
My world you fill
With passions fire.

I dreamed a dream
That wasn't to be
I reboarded the ship
To the lonely seas.

There was a glimmer
Of love once more
I steered the ship
Onto hopes shore

As that tide ebbed in
It went back out again
Leaving my poor heart
Feeling the same pain

My soul is bound
To float adrift
Endless ocean alone
Now a forgotten myth.

Recent events had me rooting through my feelings, this is the resulting poem that was the result.


Tied down

By lonely chains

See no escape

Tears fall

Heart aches

Darkness shape.

For so long

Soul has cried

Echoed infinity

Hope is starved

No love found

Empty vicinity.

A glimmer

A tease

Cruel mirage

Feelings slashed

Reality bites

Endless barrage.

Dying inside

I close my eyes

Still I feel the pain

But then a light

An Angel bright

Dare I hope again?

Dear New Years Eve,

Don't get me wrong it is lovely to see you each year a reminder that we humanity has continued to survive somehow. But I have to raise a great concern that really bugs me.

Why we spend so much money on you like a luxury extravagance? I'm pretty sure you sisn't ask us to throw money at you.

Yet London alone spent an estimated £3,250,000. on you, that is not including the extra demand on the already underfunded Police, Ambulance and Fire services. Unfortunately there are many party revelers can't even enjoy your presence without being completely stupid about it!

Yet alone the clean up costs of the discarded tons of litter city dwellers simply expect to magica...

Reading about the search for intelligent life in the Universe got me to thinking, (Again). There is a huge amount of real estate surrounding us in to which neighbours must well have moved. Even with all the time that has past those fourteen or so billion years where it is possible that other civilisations have come and gone already, the odds are that there is a lot of other life out there.

However we send out these invitations to them hoping, expecting, for some kind of reply in all directions getting despondent as we have had no reply.

Here is the thought I had though.

Knowing humanity as it is right now, what we have done to this planet, our violent history; if you were intellig...

As I stand outside the stadium I can hear the rest of the world inside enjoying the concert of life.

Yet here I stand outside alone for I was not afforded a ticket to join in with them.

I can hear them but I cannot see them then I realise that is how it has always been.

Stood outside in the huge empty car park alone, it is then that it hits me that this is how my song has always been played.

Dear Future,

I cannot see you yet I know you’re always there, waiting for us hidden from our present view. Once I thought how exciting it would be to finally meet you yet writing this letter I can tell you that you have come to fill my soul with fear.

It is not your fault either for how you behave is shaped by the humanity of the present, well here on Earth at least.

Perhaps they do not value the shining beauty of who you can be as they don’t seem to even acknowledge your existence based on the way they carry on here in the moment of now.

My Dear Past,

You've always been there for me but I cannot stay with you I'm sorry to tell you. I have met the present who I love more than anything and we are having a relationship giving birth to the future. You'll always remain in my thoughts as I have millions of memories we have shared together. You have helped me grow to who I am now, for that I will always be truly grateful. It is such a comfort to know that you will always be there to reminisce with about all those amazing things we did when I need..

As I sit sipping my coffee thoughts
of recent events fills my mind with the following thought.


When did humanity reach the point that the truth is met with such hurt that leads to guilt? How have we come to turn such a positive into a reflection of negativity?

Not the truths that bring to light a purposeful lie that was born in the past for they are that which will always create revealed pain.

Is not Life given to seeking the truths that may lead to enlightenment? When one is given as a gift why is it not revered as bettering life?

To me does not the one who tells the deepest of truths showing courage through such depth of integral character not show they are the m...

Inside of me
There is a hole
For when you left
You broke my soul

The piece that loved
Shattered like glass
The glue of life
Gave it a pass

For each heart beat
Now echoes there
No one to hear
Silence to bear

Quiet tears fall
But fill it not
My happy past
Time has forgot

I was again not going to share this but I realise that it will have meaning to so many people that it may perhaps bring some tiny measure of comfort  and that is how words should truly be used in this life?


I sit in the dark, my mind full of love
You were my angel, from heaven above,
When feelings arose, you left me alone,
My soul plays music, that has a sad tone,
The hurt that it caused, from truth it was born,
Tears in a sunset, instead of loves dawn,
You’ve taken the light, once filling my life,
Absolute pure trust, a friendship so rife,
Flowers now wilted, are haunting my past,
Failed by emotion, so honestly cast,
My conscience is clear, the secret was shared,
