Singularity… #Confusion #Poetry

Sun flares cause widespread confusion
Inciting lack of communication
News good and bad making the rounds
Gathering momentum, causing chaos
Under dark skies people gather
Loss of mobile chatter
Airways sing with peace
Rain the only sound drumming
Inside McDonald’s, people eat in silence
Texting no longer has their thumbs in action
Yesterdays news is all they have…

The Universe… #Poetry

The Universe

The universe is like crazy paving
You cannot avoid the cracks
With each step, it changes
Like a constant gardener
Living in a compost heap of Earth’s wine
Plucking weeds, planting bulbs
where they’re not wanted
Changing borders, straightening edges
Turning my life into a jigsaw puzzle
Pieces missing, others put in place
where they don’t fit, causing chaos
Surely they could have chosen a better plan
on the day I was born?

I see you… #Poetry

I See You


I see a piece of you
like a puzzle that has slipped out of place
it's the reason you are out of step with your life.
I see the chaos in the space between
strange moments that don't fit
that don't belong to you.
As if someone is trying to occupy
the space before it closes.
I hear your voice, the sound belongs to another
harsh, cruel. It scares me as if someone
has taken a piece of my mind.
Does it match your missing part?
Will we find a way to put them back in place?
will life tear more away,
as if we were no more than cardboard cut-outs
from a forgotten jigsaw puzzle...

The Voice of Chaos… #Poetry

I am hell

Where I walk there is fire

The kind that burns within

Have you missed me?

My children of Earth

Have you lost inspiration?

During my absence

Are your desires diminished

By the void I left

Do you still worship gold?

Your flashy cars, beautiful women

Do you still twist the knife?

In your neighbours back

To gain an advantage

Do you long for my return

To carry you from the wilderness

Free you from the yoke of goodness

I fan the flame of desire

Of chaos, you need only to follow…
