A Series of Surreal Inspirations

Crocodile cracks
pave the way for
frightened, bewildered bears who
ought to beware
and take care
not to get caught
or killed
by a rabid
assortment of
slathering ravenous

Children’s slurping screams;
Laughter licks the quiet light
Words chew the silence.

Your flabby fingers,
That flip and flop
across the keyboard
like a family of famished maggots
fighting over a few morsels
of fresh meat in a
feast of festering

Cyan sheet spread wide,
Concrete carpet turns to dust –
Morning gathers rust.
(All poems inspired by #TLPoetry ‘Abstract/Surreal)

I love words; both reading and writing them. I've started this site in order to have a depository for all the random ramblings which are continually swirling around my mind. Some of the aforementioned ramblings may be quite serious but the majority probably won't be. I'm a single mother living in Norwich. I'm also autistic. This isn't the defining component of my personality, although it is a significant one, and one which I think has a heavy influence on my writing, which is why I choose to highlight it. I also feel no shame over being autistic and refuse to perceive it as a disability. The way I see it, life is hard work whichever way your brain is wired up. Aside from all things wordy, I also love music. I find it to be an incredible mood enhancer, as well as a great enabler for the imagination. I love all kinds of music, though hard house in particular - as everything in life is better when it's hard... I hope you enjoy my musings and thank you for reading!
