Settling to doze.
Catnap called for.
Hand in hand.
They'd strolled through time.
Short in eternity.
Through darkness into light.
Bright green forest.
Streaming sunlight ,
Scent of the forest carried through the atmosphere.
It was so very warm.
In a blanket of compassion.
Felt like they were twelve again.
With childlike vigour.
From the forest floor the scenery changed.
They could smell the sea.
With renewed crystal clear senses.
They could hear the oceans roar.
Collected seashells while they walked.
Justified dancing on the shore.
To be young again.
Skimming stones of memory across the rolling tide.
Vivified in minds eye.
A pebble for their children.
One, two, three.
Wandered into waters edge.
Last drifting breaths to the edge.
Door clicked open.
There they lay.
The happy couple in eternal slumber.
Pill bottle placed neatly by the bed.
For heaven's sake both were dead!

The spark of inspiration which drives forth the will
And the spirit of all those grateful enough to be touched
It is the symbol of great pulchritude in lasting words
It is the effigy of overwhelming power’s grasp over one’s mind
A single pause can have more meaning than any sound could attempt to demonstrate
And through silence, an understanding is made
It is complexity within simplicity; it is a message where there is none
Let it be treasured wherever it may be found
And last eternally as a memory so… profound.
The study of guessing
a stab in the dark
maiden voyage embark
Truth is often too stark
and seldom impressing
the truth's a remark
that lies are undressing
order in chaos
joy within sadness
laughter in crying
life found in dying
Death was on his doorstep-
Calling his name
Pulling him in to the darkest
parts of his brain.
Love called his name,
but death shouted louder
Love replied "death, don't bother"
Death slowly crept through little
cracks between his windowpanes
Love cried out "Leave this place!"
Terrified, he didn't know what to do-
So he welcomed Love and Death in.
They slowly devoured him..
