Reaching out into the void I feel the soft caress of lips brush across my fingers, and I shiver.
A power courses through my being radiating a glow to my very core, taking me through the night. Such a wonderment of dream as the freshness of the rising sun filters through the air.
Sleepy buds bloom their scent drifting upon the morning rays Wrapped in the warmth of love.
I smile as I my eyes meet the beauty that is you
The following is a collection of some of the short and mid-length prose I’ve written over the last twenty years.
The text consists of over 130 original works, some of which were commissioned to be displayed alongside gallery work and others that have previously published in a number of well respected literary magazines.
This was a period of great personal change following an accident which left me physically impaired.
The cathartic nature of the short prose form allowed me to release my frustrations through verse and not on those nearest to me. It was very difficult to come to terms with my situation and this can be seen in short pieces such as Identity, Roaring Echoes or Tomorrow.
The trajectory of this collection follows my initial trauma, denial and finally acceptance of not only what had happened to me, but also my new life circumstances.
This collection was not made with long form prose in mind however a number of mid-length pieces are included. In particular my reflection on marital rape and abuse is included in I Understand This.
