Why, oh why,
When the rains have eased,
Do the darkening clouds
Act like they’re teased?
Fingers grasping,
Maw stretched wide,
Gulping sun rays
Deep down inside.
Shadows spreading
As demons gaze.
Searching houses
And trees to raze.
An ever spinning
Catherine Wheel
Stripping dry skin
Like orange peel.
Leaving smiles
To gather dust.
An e-type Jag
Turns to rust.
A brown rubber plant
Dead in dry dirt.
It’s alright,
Veg don’t feel hurt.
A noisy way out
For a quiet little mouse.
Echoes resounding
In a lonely, cold house.
A doubt for the animals
Trapped in a zoo,
Children and parents
Getting stuck on a two.
Food that chuckles
As we eat.
Mouths that suckle
On dry teat.
Bees on I.V.’s,
Stings on hooks.
Shadowed eyes,
Furtive looks.
Blu Tac solutions,
Extra sweaters.
A poisoned white bird,
Scary letters.
Cringing figures,
Thin white doors.
Slipping muck
Over seeping sores.
Images  erased
Stare at the sky.

challenges faced

Questions why.

About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
