No. 3094

  
Quiet and Chaos. By CpSingleton © 2016
There’s a voice on the waves.

It sails across time

With a gentle to do and

Other phrases that aren’t mine.
She wants to take my hand:

To lead me down leafy avenues.

To bandstands with bassoons 

Where we’ll dance in soft shoes.
After, we’ll take tea on the veranda:

Sweet tea and fresh cakes.

Then we’ll climb in the convertible 

To dinner down by the lakes.
We’ll talk of the winter hols

The summer and the spring,

As we lie back and listen to

Our two hearts gently sing
When, just as we cross 

The border to propriety,

She will shrug and sigh 

Before tearing the life out of me.
Fingers and teeth will be 

Used in the play.

We’ll silence the earth and

Prolong the day.
Expletives and screams will

Replace china and frills,

In this quiet and chaos of

Our battle of wills.
Inside and out again, 

Peppered with blue.

Wet, slippery skin,

Sheets sopping through.
We’ll meet in the middle,

Then tear off the edge.

We’ll ride through the sunset

As we balance on the ledge.
Just us left to witness:

The world lost at sea.

We’ll tear out our hearts and

Forever be free.

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.
