He must walk this world alone;
Dark hair, dark eyes – much
Darker name we never speak.

He passes through unseen;
But still we know, as
We shiver in the warmth.

Doomed to be alone.
Stranger in the crowd,
Solitary one.

Just longing, to
Care for someone, not
To just exist.

Not long, there
He saw him, brighter
than the sun.

Wide eyed,
Or else enchanted
By him.



Who’s he?
And why so sad? He

Bright green eyes,
Soft pink hair, to match,
Widest smile.

To look upon,
Such loneliness, his
Aching heart broke.

I know you now. He
Who walks in shadows.
I’ll show you the light.

So at the last moment
He reached out, to take
Cold fingers in his own.

Death’s no longer alone, Life
Embraces him now.
They stay like that. Forever.

Flash Friday (Saturday) – Void


Follow me

The angel whispered
Luring me in with his song

I’ll guide you over
You don’t need them
They can’t help you any more

So follow me
I’ll grant you safe passage
There’s no way you can go wrong

His voice it was smooth
Like fine royal silks
His eyes
Morning’s new blue sky

His lips
They drew me in
Tempted me
Enticed me

Led me to believe a lie

All his promises
His voice of gods
His eyes of blue
His lips of purest red

All a lie

My eyes deceived me
Showed me what I wanted

But the truth?

Dark as the night
Cruel as lashes

I did follow him
And now it’s too late

I turned back though
Just for one moment

Nothing left of before
Nothing onwards either

Just deafening silence
And empty darkness
Without even those lie baring lips

The ones which had spoken
Under many false pretences

Just to bring me in


I didn’t finish this one in time to enter it but I thought I’d share anyway! Thanks for reading,
