The years slip
Like sand through
A clenched fist
Into the beach
Of time
Never to be
From those
Already passed
In this endless stream
Of existence.

Dear constant reader,

This post denotes the 7th complete year of this blog, originally started as an attempt to write more frequently. For those of you who have been with me from the beginning, you will have surely recognized changes in my style and techniques over the years. Thank you for taking this journey with me. For all of you who have joined me along the path, I have to give you all my gratitude. Without you, this blog would never have come to fruition.

Lastly, I would like to thank all my dear friends and family who have loved and supported me in my journey. Without each of you, I don’t think I could have ever finished the first year of this project, never mind the following six!

Thank and all the best,

What wasn’t meant to be

The cards were dealt
The plan laid out
But there wasn’t
A hand for me.
Left for lost
No real cost
She saw who she liked
To see.
It didn’t hurt
Being rubbed in dirt
I’d been there
So many times.
But this last one did
Because she hid
All her sorrow
And pain from me.
In the end
We couldn’t mend
What wasn’t
Meant to be.

It’s tough to stay on top
When the pile just keeps on growing
Up and up like no one’s there
It just build on past
The world we thought we knew
Eventually we stop
And let it go on
Sometimes I feel it’s all just wrong

Night of nights

This night
Seems to go on
Far beyond
The number of hours
It was allocated
It just keeps on going
And going
And going
Never really ending
Dark dark dark
Empty and alone
This might
Shall never
See day

So low
The ground feels
A mile up
From where I am
Lost and without
A purpose

A ghost of who I was
Fading away from reality
Leaving it behind
To dwell in darkness
Becoming one with the shadow
And walking away

A dance in shadows
Battle between hot and cold
Darkness meets the light
