Fighting the Darkness. By CpSingleton © 2016

Darkness can you hear me?

I’m not now scared to die.

Keep your icy fingers to yourself,

I am opening my eyes.

Darkness can you hear me?

I will fight you with each breath.

You may send your images at me;

Those that chronicle my own death,


I will crunch down broken borders.

I will stride across your fields.

I will light up my own pathways and 

See what my own route yields.


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.

  2. “Hello, darkness, my old friend” and I forget the rest of the words. Anyway, I love this poem. It’s very relatable

      • Off with their heads! I have an inner ear infection and upper respiratory infection. Meh. I have medication through, I should be dancing the Charleston again soon. I’m all 1920s like that. Hope you are well and in full Brit mode. Love to your friend.

  3. You go from Alice of the nineteenth century to the early twentieth: you are a time spanner!
    I am always in full bloody Brit mode. 😉
    Glad my friend is doing better.
    We will need a vid of her doing the Charleston. In full costume. That would be funnnnnnyyyyy. X
