Shadow People

Shadow people, is a strange collection of short poetry, haiku and free verse. The Shadow People linger in our dreams, prowl our dark corridors, some with good intentions others with evil schemes. They are our bane, our saviours, in our darkest times will they be friend or foe? The Shadow People live on, a reminder of the deviant worlds that reside alongside ours, in our shadows and souls.
Limbo
Price: Free! Words: 380. Language: English. Published: October 5, 2017. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Literature » Literary
Limbo is a collection of short poetry, haikus and that in-between place that we go to when we need to escape reality. The collection explores the feelings of being impartial, neutral, not taking sides but just being there in life. Limbo is the call of forces beyond our understanding, a slight horror, a minuscule terror, the urge to maybe peek through the keyhole of dreams. This is Limbo.
Flat World Madness
Price: Free! Words: 900. Language: English. Published: April 23, 2017. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Literature » Literary
Your mind is in the wrong place. You're facing the wrong direction. You're walking. You think you're walking straight. But, no! You're walking off the face of this planet. This is Flat World Madness. Every step is a drop. A jump. A dive into the madness of our world. You think this world is round and fun? Think again. We making it flat. We bombing, we killing, we peeling life from reality. We mad.

(5.00 from 1 review)
O, just the random poetic ramblings of a mad man... Jellyfish on the wall, jellyfish in my closet, the world's gone bonkers! Humans in space abort their Earthly landings. Love is a transition, a door, a passage between life and death. Hearts hunger, souls linger and alternate worlds are shattered. The change is human life, the minds of our fragile existence. The only threat is- immortal jellyfish.
Eclipse- A War of Words
Price: Free! Words: 6,890. Language: English. Published: September 5, 2016. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Urban
Eclipse- A War of Words, explores the physical, mental and socio-cultural impacts of wars on our world. Wars are fought every single day. Between the mind and body. Between the soul and the unseen. Within the body, wars are taking place, between humans and relationships, wars are taking place. On the battlefield, with guns and bombs, wars are taking place. Are you ready to be eclipsed?
Watching Aliens
Price: Free! Words: 25,420. Language: English. Published: September 1, 2016. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Literature » Literary
Watching Aliens is a majestic collection that embodies the observation of humans. Actions, feelings and situations that may seem so alien to us are in fact, things so common. We humans, in this digital age have lost what is commonly known as, personal touch. Watching Aliens, is inspired by Jack Kerouac's modern haikus; the need for an inclusive society in this current age of rapid modernisation.
