Dreaming of You

Is there such a thing as Poetry Noir? 

Dreaming of You 

I needed to be

Bonnie and Clyde,

All guns blazing

Someone at my side,

To judge the stakes

And take the risks,

I had already

Suffered myself –

Putting it on the line,

Like a two dollar,

Fantasy crime, novel,

I’d rashly bought,

A shabby bargain,

At cost price.

When you traded in

Our loyalty;

Abandoning me,

With nothing more

Than telling the sorry tale

Of your selfish

Betrayal,

In the shattered light,

And jagged fragments of night,

Your love destroyed,

Every sense

It touched,

Torching it to the ground.

Stranded in the shadows

Of dark afterglow,

I dreamt of

Our last stand, and

The sweet violence, still

Smouldering in the fire;

In my burnt out shell,

I still fantasize,

Of the bond

Between us;

Reality insists on

A tragic ending – and yet,

I’m still dreaming of you…

Rogue Bonkers in PhoenixHey kids! Near to the Knuckle’s Rogue collection is out in paperback now for those of you not into the whole digital business. Get 22 knuckle-dusting tales that will knock the stuffing out of you:

The book you’re holding in your hands, flipping across your screen or pirating, is a bold statement by a group of authors who are committed to controlling their own literary destinies. To representing themselves and their stories the way they want to. To producing quality literature without constraints, or middle-management foibles, or decisions based on what will appeal to this demographic or best reflect that group. To give you raw, uncompromising stories from the depths of their filthy imaginations. More punk than Cowell-esque candy pop, this collection captures a group of writers, writing in a spectacularly diverse myriad of styles at the very top of their game. You can feel the enthusiasm for the project…

PULP METAL MAGAZINE

“It’s difficult” she muttered nervously,

“In your own good time” replied Declan as graciously as he could on a very dull Monday morning, to an equally dull looking client, who was already testing his patience.
