50 Word Stories: Amidst Endless Oceans


If you looked deep down beneath the cosmos of her eyes, the stars glittering in silent refrain, beneath the aquamarine waves of universal shores, then deeper still, you might have glimpsed infinity. That’s where I swam amidst the star stuff, the oceans, the endless possibilities, and would for ever more.

Part Way There

When night stands transfused by colour

A single, solitary star ablaze with the promise

Of a shared infinity, sampled eternity,

And I look to my hands that shift from violet to blue

With the subtle shades of forever,

Then I know I am either in heaven,

Or part way there.

Either way, I am more content than I was

For I am that little bit closer to you.

Sailing The Forever


I’ve sailed the seas of eternity
Where the cosmos laps upon the shores of forever.
No other human eyes have seen such miracles,
As universes clash and mingle.
A place where light lives in blazes of colour
Then dies alone in the darkness,
Stretched beyond the limits of science,
Before dissipating into sparkling star dust.
I have raised my sail to intergalactic winds
And fought the vortices of mighty black holes,
Skimming around the nothingness
Then shooting back out across the heavens.
Seen the joyous birth of magenta gases,
The citrine burst of a million promises,
The vermillion winking of a trillion eyes.
No charts have I, not do I want.
An endless navigation of that which can never be mapped;
This is my wish.
And that one day, as I surf infinity,
I shall find my love,
Hold her in my arms,
Kiss her ruby lips
And sail on into the forever.
Tis a dream within a dream
A wish uttered upon the winds of my imagination.
But it is a wish worth striving for, sailing to.
And I shall,
No matter how long it takes.

Midnight Bliss

Burning moon image

She looked at me through midnight eyes
Voluminous lashes shading pools of liquid night
A lock of raven hair trickled over an exquisite cheekbone
As she glided to my side
I was lost in a darkness so complete
That I may have been swimming through infinity
Her skin of velvet perfection brushed my own
And I felt what she yearned for
This demoness of undead sublimity
Would become my Queen
I would worship before those twin, milk daggers
As they sank into my yielding neck
I would bleed for her, kill for her
And as the Cleopatra mask slipped from her skin
Those eyes of obsidian hue held me in thrall
The moon burned
As I died in midnight bliss
