One a penny two a penny…

3D somehow becomes
2D and I am
transported through time
to when clouds
were shapes
and the sky
was an endless
Terra tugs at my core
caressing lost strands
of self
as my inner child
sings nursery rhymes
fit for a killer.
Death lays all around me.
Abandoned graves
aging trees
Adulthood on the
lost lips of kids as
they grasp at the
milk cartons
and for a moment
I see St Nicholas
flying high through
cornflower blue skies
I close my eyes
for a last moments
“please wake me
from this dream”
but no one hears
I am four and
that God does
not exist…

… I lay now,
supine in a
moments serenity
reflecting my daily
wish to wake from
this dream
they call life…

Welcome to my blog! Here you will find different forms of creative writing, lots of swearing, erotic poetry, random thoughts, beautiful imagery, but most of all you will find a version of truth. My truth, this is the way that I see the world. However, all of my work is a form of creative writing, a combination of truth and fiction. I write to express my creativity, not my needs!

    1. Hey Mr 😊😊😊 yeah I guess I know that now, but when I was a kid wanting to wake up from the dream that was life… God didn’t help me then😎😎😎😎….


      1. πŸ™‚ Missed your writing glad to see you are back at it… funny thing, Im no longer posting here for this time, gonna edit this blog out and trash it. Then eventually start a new one, when God leads…


      2. It’s good to see you. I’ve been thinking about starting a new blog, edit what I have and refresh it all up….but it seems like hard work, and my creative chaos of a soul isn’t much keen on hard workπŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„
