As I approached the old run down house  soaked through to the skin as I was

by the heavy rain I knocked on the red door with its old rusty knocker

I  received no answer I got no reply from ringing the door bell either

so I circled the house looking for a way in then finding the french windows on the latch

I went in out  from the thunderstorm then I saw it there it was hidden in a dark  dusty corner

it was a beautiful still life so lifelike and startlingly vivid in it’s colour and shades

it seemed to call out to me

2words   Half Life

hiding from the light

107 words   We live in shadows hiding in doorways shying away from electric light’s glare unhappy in the daylight longing for the night writhing in pain if caught by the suns rays struggling hard to keep out of it’s way digging deep holes is how we spend the day tunnelling this way and that deeper and deeper we go hardly needing our eyes anymore that is why we now call this life we lead half life you on my left and you on my right we use drains now to move around we need to be private afraid to be found this half life to which we’re bound.

Half life

Half life

We live in shadows hiding in doorways shying away

from electric light’s glare unhappy in the daylight

longing for the night

writhing in pain if caught by the suns rays

struggling hard to keep out of it’s way

digging deep holes is how we spend the day

tunnelling this way and that deeper and deeper we go hardly

needing our eyes anymore that is why we now call this life

we lead half life you on my left and you on my right

we use drains now to move around

we need to be private afraid to be found

this half life to which we’re bound.
