No. 3135


Sleep until the New School Day. By CpSingleton © 2016

You watch from the sidelines:

Impassive, straight faced.

You see the moon labour and yawn its way up the horizon, yet

Question nothing.

It becomes bored, therefore creeps behind thick cloud to find some solitude.

There’s no romance to be found in floating rocks, after all, is there?

No romance in you.

Far off your ears suddenly ring with the sound of violence.

Cold screams and helpful sirens bounce from badly placed houses.

The cries of broken souls blend like sour milk in hot coffee 

With anger’s pointless storm.

You turn away.

There’s nothing you want to do.

There’s little you feel you can do.

Inside your heart beats, but

Isn’t it just like a soft-spoken plaintiff in a room full of roaring defendants?

You step slowly back inside your castle.

Nobody can breach those walls, 

Can they?

They can pound and remonstrate from far below.

They can send emotional boulders crashing against the cold stone, but

They will never break through.

They can attempt to tunnel under your foundations, but they go way down deep on dark days don’t they?

You listen for the echoes of the ghosts of Christmas past as you slouch up the steep stairway.

Even Marley’s turned his back on lessons today.

Sleep. 

Tomorrow a new school day begins.

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.
