So pleased to appear in the first ever issue of Scryptic




losing count

of the pills


crows in the trees

darkness swallows

their cries


no moon tonight

I drift between nightmare

and darkness


withered vines

the tourniquet fails

to raise a vein

So pleased to be part of the new issue of Hedgerow!


howling wind

inside I too

am screaming


broken doll

my dreams of becoming

a doctor
