JULIAN_1-page-001  FATHER_1-page-001PRIEST_1-page-001 NUN_1-page-001

Julian, a mixed race boy from a broken home is 17 and in his last year of sixth form. After losing his mother in sudden and mysterious  circumstances, he grew up with hate and resentment in his heart. His loving father, unable to tame him lives a life unfulfilled. Julian has long since lost faith in religious and academic institutions.  God, to him, is nothing but a 3 letter word said by the delusional.

But, he’s about to be thrown in the middle of a war between two beings from a realm above the heavens. A war that transcends time and space, whose battle ground has become the very fabric of existence itself. Its warriors, like fallen Angels, live among us — hidden within a program designed for their rehabilitation.

Julian will rediscover beliefs and emotions he had long since discarded, have them brutally tested, witness things no other mortal man has — and through these trials discover the true meaning of faith.

A heart felt experiment in haiku structure. what do you feel?

The aim was to tell a story, where the first two lines worth of syllables where comprised of only two words. Words who’s connection to the last line would become more meaningful when related to each other, and not just in the context of this miscarriage.

I was feeling like a completely loved up pansy on the train, & wrote this poem.

I want you to scrunch your face up at me.

I dance for you, with a smile I gyrate,

The smell of my moisturiser intertwined with the music you don’t quite hate.

All for the love of that face,

I can’t go out in public without something silly to say, you pray – please try to behave.

It’s all for the feeling I crave,

The love that swerves around agitation, to feather and tickle embers into flame.

You look so pretty, can you give me a taste?

Or even a hug, i’ll take anything, I promise I won’t hesitate.

You always make me glad I came,

Even when death may try to stop me, i’ll live forever in the scrunch of your face, fighting off any grey & playing Jester games till the end of days.

Framing the sun that lives in your face,

The soft collections of hair trailing the top of your ear to its base – Trafalgar side burns that were love laced.

In the end I just wanted to write the truth, love and Cake Face.
