A little drop

I dropped the night

Into a watery sky.

And watched

it’s inky fingers spread.

Stains across the sun.

And smiled.

As I realised,

Silence was falling.

Broken only by the soft


Of those who missed

The light.


Away Before The Sun Awakes

The sun sets now.
And you. 
Away down that
One clear road.
Round corners and
On, on further.
Till out of sight. 
The scene
Plays on repeat.
Corners bend
The road
Runs thinner,
And the sun.
Burns red.
And you
To nothing.
But a burnt

Sky Swallowed Earth

With not even a whisper.
Nor last hopeful cry.
Just a silent sinking.
Below the eye.
The last weak yellow ray
Faded out, and
To a place forever changed.
We all awoke.
Fog in the air.
Mist in our throat.
Nothing but blurred.
Matchstick men.
We stumbled and fell.
As feet were lost.
And found.
Till one by one.
In this cloud land.
We all.

Excuse Me Sir

The moon while it slept.
Was silently slain.
Turning the sun white.
With grief and pain. 

The blue was stolen.
From all of the sky.
A vast emptiness reigned. 
Not a single bird would fly.

So in monochrome life.
A town shuffled slow.
One quiet soul alone.
Knew the curse would go.

Their voice was not heard.
Above each mournful cry.
And in ones, then twos.
Shadow people lay down to die.

The world it turned.
Till the population was one.
With a secret, silent prayer.
Misery lifted, darkness gone.

So in a new colourful life.
Heard loud and clear.
The smiling lone soul.
Sang sweetly with no fear.
