I need an escape,
I need a way out,
The darkness is surrounding me,
Forever dimming.
The light that once was is fading,
Fading fast,
I cannot hope,
I cannot breathe,
I am shattered.
I once held a spark,
It grew brighter every day,
That spark now dwindles,
Beneath the winters rain,
The spark saw hope,
Grew once more.
Alas that was a lost cause,
A hope that was false,
This spark is dwindling more,
I hope it goes out not.
For I cant take much more,
This darkness that’s without.

like a shadow,
like a shadow,
the truth always hidden.
darkness is easier to hide behind;
light gives sight too all.
shadows are all but whole truth,s
denying what is the light of day.
the life bereft of the sun
shall always remain in darkness.

Living like this is not,
a spark waiting to set the forest on fire,
living like this will not let me move,
like a frozen tree unable to sway with the wind.
a spark only i can see,
a spark i saved of myself,
before i lay down to die and accept.
the fire that now burns inside,
consumes my soul,
makes me want to live,
to be free,
to burn without being extinguished.
my soul needs to be free,
but the chains that bind,
must first be broken,
to be allowed to breathe.
the fire then will burn forever more.
(a poem based on a bukowski quote and my own life experience…)
   “I knew that I was dying.
   something in me said, go ahead, die, sleep, become as
   them, accept. then something else in me said, no, save the tiniest
   it needn’t be much, just a spark.
   a spark can set a whole forest on
   just a spark.
   save it.”

I wish I could feel,
the numbness that I have felt,
so foreign,
so empty.
I wish things were different,
that we talked,
that the obvious never happened.
I wish i never fell so far,
that waiting was worth it,
alas you never knew me,
you never took interest,
you found me safe,
that was good enough.
That was never good enough,
not for me,
i knew everything I could about you.
You still lie,
you still cause me pain,
I still hate myself
a little more every day.
I feel numb.
Nothing exists inside,
no feeling,
no hope,
only empty.
I’m complicated,
I’m strong,
but i made myself weak,
in the belief that it was worth it.
I am numb.

I make my art to express my thoughts and emotions in someway that is visually appealing. It's a way for me to communicate what I would otherwise struggle to express another way. It's something not just to fill my time but something I enjoy doing no matter how frustrating the process is.
The inspiration for a lot of my work is attributed to things that affect me and my life, through family or I can all of sudden be inspired by a feather floating on the wind, or reading a poem or watching a show on the television. My artwork to me is an extension of myself and everything I am. It fills me with pleasure, sorrow, hope and loss. To get these into the image is difficult and more than often fails, but sometimes I get some gems.

"the more arty version of the statement":
My work explores the relationship between the emotional memories, Jungian archetypes and multimedia experiences.

With influences as diverse as Kierkegaard and John Lennon, new synergies are manufactured from both opaque and transparent meanings.

With influences as diverse as Wittgenstein and Miles Davis, new variations are manufactured from both constructed and discovered layers.

Ever since I was a pre-adolescent I have been fascinated by the theoretical limits of the universe. What starts out as yearning soon becomes manipulated into a dialectic of temptation, leaving only a sense of decadence and the unlikelihood of a new beginning.

As shifting derivatives become reconfigured through frantic and critical practice, the viewer is left with a testament to the darkness of our world.

you are not permitted to use any of my imagery, unless otherwise stated with a creative commons license.

everything around me came crashing down and i had to process things in a very short space of time. i left someone i loved to sort myself out and everything now lies in ruins. but i will persevere i have to. i have to accept that she will never come back and i do... finally...

My poems/ writings recently have been very short lived, written in very short spaces of time, but there's room for improvement on all of them and revising.
I plan to keep writing, and drawing (will upload those when i can).

Long and short, life right now is shit. i'm dealing with everything and i trip every few steps. but i will get there.

I'm doing a TEFL course (teach english as a foreign language) course with plans to leave the country and travel a bit till i find somewhere i can call home.
where i live and have done for the last 20+ years i don't call home... i felt like my relationship was as close to home as i would get living here. but i was wrong it seems.

I can say so much and keep saying it, but in the end it comes down to that. i've fucked up in the past that's why i tried to make it right instead it's in ruins and all i can do now is pick up the shattered pieces and put myself back together and never make those mistakes again.

which is my plan i have my bucket list which i've recently changed the 2 top things in it will never change upon completion:
I will be ok
Ask for help when you are struggling no matter what.

these are now prominent on that list and will remain there for good.

i will not let this beat me.
