''But perhaps...

..their strong and aristocratic silence, the silence of strong trees, meant something else.''

Women's bodies merged out of the trees, dark, bulbous trees.
They appeared everywhere.
Soft, low voices.
Women's voices, breathless.

Stood, at the top of a small hill,
looking up at the sky.
It was bright, sunny.
Yellow/orange circle filled my eyes
and there lye a symbol,
a star,
and in the middle of the star, an eye,
a women's eye,
a child's eye,
the Devils eye,
cast over like a shadow
in the deepened yellow/orange sky.

I will reap my soul into the deep, and curdle words against my skin

Lamb

Legs of a lamb
lips painted red.
Under your eyes,
uneasy and unfed.
Stained against the mirror,
legs buckle and unfurl.
In the arms of your mother,
just a little girl.
Just a little girl.

(Schiele) 


Hidden Child

She won't admit it
She's too clever,
She hides it well,
under a painted smile. red.
A quiet one she is,
she'll never tell.
Only in me
will she hide,
and in her
I will dwell.

A hidden child, will never tell.

Blood red

When prison walls decay
you'll find yourself
growing,
growing.
It opens itself in on you,
you'll find it in the garden.
Shrouds of dirt begin to bleed
and draw their veins into the seams
of opened skin
so red
it feeds upon your body,
bleeding
bleeding.
Come with me,
come walk with me,
to that place untold,
unheard
unseen.
We'll share the sun 
and drown
alone inside the river
slowly,
slowly.
Now all that's left
for us to give,
is our dying flesh
that rots
so beautifully,
to the souls that crave
for our purity.

Pretty Pettle


''She's a funny looking thing isn't she?''

I'd like to, fade away.

''Yes, a funny little thing.''

..and the moss on the moors remains the same.

''You'll always find your way'', he said, you'll always find your way..


Pretty, little petal

Album artwork

Am very proud to have been involved in creating some artwork for a local band in Sheffield: InFictions, along with other local artists too.
I was chuffed to bits when I saw they'd chosen to use the drawing I'd done for their album cover..and I think it looks ace!!





You can find the band here:
