Wonder Filled Wandering

Standard

Solipsistic sondering
Wonder filled wandering
It’s a great time to be alive
And filled to the brim with life

And yet love eludes
And confuses
Tears down hope
And simultaneously
Builds it up
And up

Until the hope is just as powerful
As the love that might be
And yet, she doesn’t love you
At least not yet

A woman like that needs to be won
Not wined and dined
But no battles are being fought
Not any more

So how to convince without conniving
How to cajole without convening
A circus of idiots and fools
Perhaps that would help
In the end
Perhaps that would be the final straw

Because she is worth it
Every single flaw
Is a masterpiece upon her visage
She is perfect, as no one can be
Distance adds and increases
Lust as much as love

Or even more
Lust a powerful objective
Love is the reflective
A view into one’s own soul

Winter’s Malcontent

Standard

The winter sat heavy upon those people although they never knew
The sunshine and warmth obscured the truth as they downed another brew
Their lots decided years before, their actions all in check
Society the death of innovation, and the curse of the young
And the reckless
And the pained
And somewhere inside, he knew that the words were not enough
So he took up that deadly staff
Fire spinning from his hands in deadly retribution
Syncopated
And disjointed
Near indecipherable, and yet within it all the truth dawned
It became suddenly clear,
There were others to hold the burden, others to lighten the load
But only if he could lighten theirs…

Concept Art For New Short Story – Coming Soon

Standard

My new short story is almost finished and I thought I would put up a piece of concept art. (Clearly I should stick to writing…)

What happens when the world’s first Quadrillionaire decides that the Earth needs to be saved from humanity? What happens when the very truths you hold dear to turn out to be a lie? Fal, Lack, Dareon and Aten live in a world where a building the size of long dead Everest holds the last vestiges of humanity, safe from the nuclear wasteland raging outside. Goah’s Ark is a cautionary tale that asks “If your ideas need force to function, are they worth anything to begin with?”

Goah’s Ark
