Bull Island – A Poem

Originally posted on Glass Footsteps:
First off, apologies for the lack of posts, I was away in Donegal all last week with very weak internet access! I’m taking part in a songwriting workshop this week and one of the tasks on the first day was to write a poem about a place and/or a memory.…


The video recording remembers, though memory has degraded a touch. Recycled, replayed, grown grainy, watching good girl he loves oh so much. That day she’d seemed so immortal; safe, secure, father’s love pure & strong. Laughing, runs ragged, hides from him. How had it all gone grotesquely wrong? Replays each every action all anguished; rewinds, … More Replay

Seven Hells have come and found you, seven sins swim all around your head. As your demons dance, surround you, lies each echo empty as they’re said. Seven choices made have clowned you, laugh or cry – you’ll do as you must. Foolish falsehoods flood, words drowned you as all your deceptions degrade to dust. … More Seven Sins
