Measuring by the hours I've written I am professional. My goal is to share my work with as many people that can read it, as far as the internet may reach with it. I hope if you are moved you will share this blog with others, and perhaps buy my books.

Whatever the result, thank you for viewing this blog. I cannot express how greatly I appreciate the many people, from many places upon the earth, who have visited.

Lost in Dreams


Burnt to ashes
Then cast aside
Thrown into a crevice
The rubbish of humanity
Is laid and left to rot
My mind drifts
Off slowly I float
Into the ether
The silver cord trailing
Behind me
Softly the sand
It falls through
My fingers
The hourglass breaks
The river
The stream of time flows
Pouring over
Flooding through
And I return as memories burn
Somnum Exterreri Solebat
Dreams -  Insomnium
Into the black

Without aim
Into the emptiness
Endless black

Into the abyss
Of memories loss
Entering senseless


Into a holocaust
Of souls tossed
Into the endless
The darkness
My dream state purged
Sucking down
My being
To another plane
Of the neverwas or worse
To the nevercouldbe
How clever
How delight filled
Modernity would spurn
The Faer and the Angels
Edens and paradise
Elysium and its fields
The pristine perfect worlds
That we did not deserve
Not even in
Our perfect dreams
