Sparthens

New Zealand

A little human who tries to find little joys in every corner. I love to put pen on paper and let my hand go on an adventure where I eventually find myself back at that feeling of home.

I Finally Fell Asleep

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021

I finally fell asleep
When the earth shook every mountain
Every river and house on the streets
Where the mailman used to sneak
Words undelivered and unheard of
To windows flashing open
In the dead of night 
Each day of the week

I finally fell asleep
When the earth called out my name
She sang it like a lullaby
Through the voices of people I knew
Loved ones weep it softly
Lost loves melody from afar
And even those who...

A Night with Marina

FREE WRITING

In the midst of a dark haze, shrouded in a misty cloak, stood tall a woman clad in marble white.

Am I End Thee

FREE WRITING

Sink, sink, sink
Deeper and deeper
What use are words
When my mouth can barely keep up
With what I think
And what I feel

Is it all the same?
The very things I see everyday
Must be reincarnated from the ashes 
Of yesterday’s dreams and nightmares

I sink
Deeper and deeper
Until I no longer remind myself I’m drowning
And instead let myself float around
Aimlessly
Across endless space
Eye to eye
With the ocean’s abyss
And the infinite...
