The Pain / The Calm

It is with great pleasure that I thank Suburban Witchcraft and its Editor Mirjana. I am delighted to have not one but two poems included in Issue 4 of this beautifully put together magazine.

Please do take a look at the wonderful poems and stories presented in the latest issue, and if you have a bit of spare time, then issues one through three as well. Suburban Witchcraft has a brand new website, too.

Like Butterflies


we flit through life

from one pretty moment to the next

like butterflies

never settling for the perfect bloom

Husk

this cavernous sprawl seeks fulfilment,

a splash of something in the gloom,

no reflection in a cardboard puddle

but something solid, something whole,


then the emptiness shall lick parched lips,

ponder on what it was, is, will become,

and this husk shall gasp an asphyxiation,

as if having swallowed the perfect dream.
