The Chronicles of Ever After

The second volume of my creative writings, created between 2010 and 2012. Though many of my pieces might seem to be stand-alone, they are all connected.

‘Leveling’

‘Rant 0604M212’

It’s twelve-thirty AM and I must be over-caffeinated; the world is silver, black and blue. Sleep had been forecast but when did the w…

‘The Western Front’

The rain fell down. / I knelt in the temple courtyard, veils of drizzle washed over me as my gaze was cast upon the horizon. The eastern sk…

‘Absolved’

‘..You know I’m no good..’ / Negligent of the obvious. / Funny the way life imitates art. / Years later and I found mysel…

‘Seamless (Part III)’

Breaking through translation, defying any logic; tearing free from your restraint to touch what’s truly real.

‘Seamless (Part II)’

All the rest had gone to war, stars were long since fallen. Nothing you had known-since had ever kept you safe.

‘Seamless (Part I)’

The hues below a wildfire, splashed across the land. I dabbed my sight in deepest blue, to elucidate the vision.

‘Been and Gone’

I drew upon my many scars, to orchestrate this map. Plotted out a path to take me far beyond the stars.

I find it to be the singular most harrowing detail of the whole ordeal. To see the ‘man’ and his influence upon the order of th…
