Thrilled to appear in the new issue of Scryptic, thanks to Chase & Lori!


weak winter sun

my reflection in your eyes

one last time


candles lit

she makes another wish

in vain


spirit broken

the bare stumps

of severed trees


failing light

how my worries

fill the darkness


cold shadows

not even a flicker

of recognition


somersaults her mind through confusion


alone now

the last leaf

clings on


lost in the past

the sadness

of shadow play


the broken clasp

of a favourite necklace

the bruise on her neck


twilight chill

your shadow reaches

under the door
