The Word

Before there was you were. The Word one with the Father. A word was whispered into the void and darkness was replaced with light. Light in its countless millions of worlds.

Stalked by the Black Dog

When I first knew you I had to write. Only through pen and paper could I express what was on my heart. To pour out my heart. But as time passed I thought no-one wanted to hear. I saw my notebook and pen on the desk, took them and shut them in the drawer. From... Continue Reading →
