I had fallen from heaven right down into your arms.
I had fallen from the sky above, at speed so fast I missed out on love.
You stopped me.
You blocked me.
You took shots and copped me.
I died, I woke, I cried, and Crow spoke
‘Let thy heart continue to beat, for Unique is here and vengeance I shall seek.’
They would like to participate in your event when they’re riding along for free.
They tag along right beside you when the attention is warm, and the vibe feels right. I guess I automatically become a log fire, lit and burning bright during the winter nights.
Until nothing but cold ash moves gently, like a man that just been shot five times in his right leg. Then pain is evident, but the blood eventually starts to curdle.
I know nothing.
I know that I know nothing.
I know you’re tired of thinking it.
They limp beside me in fake association when I call out for help. The dialogue translates into this:
Me: Help me!
Them: I’m here.
Me: The problem is…
Them: I’m here to help but I’ve just got to run home and turn off the oven. I’ll be right back!
11 days later
Them: Hey! Hope you’re well. I was just thinking about you.
Deep in the forests, they shaded life away from my existence.
Out on the open road, they would like to ride shotgun.
Far into the ocean heads are held underwater for a least 11 minutes.
Look up into the sky and watch me glide over my consciousness.
I’ll perch on your chest and feel your heartbeats through my feet.
I’ll flutter around your mind like a humming-bird about to dip into a flower head.
I’ll dive deep down into the sea, to scoop up your waves of love.
I’ll fly beyond the perimeter of the Earth, to sprinkle my admiration directly above your layers.
Next lifetime, I’ll recognise you.
Next lifetime, I’ll hear you.
Next lifetime, I’ll see you.
Next lifetime, I’ll press my heart beside yours. We’ll beat as one.
Next lifetime, Phoenix will rise and burn out all the memories we formed in our lifetime.
Next lifetime, Crow will tear out from the heart of the Phoenix.
Next lifetime, Crow will paint every universe black.
Next lifetime, you’ll see nothing but I promise you, you’ll feel my love.
The morning sky was dark, wind flowed around the sharp black claws of a small black body that was perched at the top…
The sweet aroma of aloe vera incense glided slowly throughout their home on the back of small gusts of wind. The back door was open, with a thin gap around half an inch in width.
Halloween had long since passed, weeks before this very night. I must press that a bonfire glitters brightly in the hungry eyes of the black one that sat in silence on the peak of a squidgy surface.
Three unworthy cries go out, as a plea of anguish to the moon that glows creating a dull sparkle in one set of eyes. They believed that in this life, God will hear them out and answer them in a timely fashion.
A sharp snap was felt a little way down from where a black ball of well-preened feathers grows.
Pop! went the spine of ignorance, whose behaviour was noted down in a carefully monitored situation.
‘Moody,’ whispers glide through the night sky.
An even louder pop came out just as the black one’s claw pierced through a spine. The lump wailed ‘forgive me! I promise I’ll try better next time.’
The black plumage paused and tilted its head to the left. Sapphire eyes looked magical and glistened with moonshine and fire. Don’t you agree?
The black boulder glanced up at the sky, a look of satisfaction to the Lord. Why not ask to be saved from God or maybe even Mary at a stretch? Why only plead for forgiveness, under the turmoil of fear and piss scented sweat?
The black sphere of hope did not consider your request.
For your ignorant behaviour had sentenced you to death.
Another disc popped, and yet a few more followed… The fire raged on naturally, the moon continued to shine. The aloe vera incense finished its purpose, yet its last slither of smoke is inhaled by a black beast that smothered a wounded sound.
At the moment a weak whimper fades to a stop, Crow cackles.
A pile was sent up North.
With its tongue and its eyes and hands cut off.
Morning arrives and the day is new
A day is new and a clock keeps ticking.
Crows best friend wakes up and declares, ‘I feel uplifted. Blessed day.’
Crow never heard that common name repeated anywhere in our universe again.

Simon said he’s single.
Simon said he’s in a dilemma.
Simon said he’ll always be here for me.
Simon said I’ve caused him a great deal of anxiety.
Simon said I’m similar and we have so much in common.
Simon said throw yourself off a cliff Unique!
Unique said nothing.
Unique asked Crow about his technique for keeping his feathers preened so well?
Unique cut out a tiny fragment from her heart and tossed it outside.
Sewer rats came out after 0100 that night and ate her nano-sized love, with one delightful bite.
A total mindfuck.
A wink and a stare.
Your best friend, who lifts you high into blissful moments.
Your lover, your one and only! A cherry kiss from her red lips.
A quiet thought with a pinch of care.
One wrong move and Crow will gut you, right after or just before you ask God for forgiveness.
Unique is this thing that flourishes in your life.
Unique is an amazing thought process, wrapped up in pain and anxiety.
Don’t ask her to choose, life is full of commonplace varieties.
NEVER ask the opinion of everyday society!
Don’t stare too long, Crow will tear you from out of that seat at their table of peace. For one cannot dream of what Unique is, without something good to eat?
Unique is a mixture of warmth and ice, like cookie dough and ice-cream with added observations.
No cinnamon sprinkles, it’s fucking disgusting.
Unique is a plethora of stars made into human form.
Unique is living remnants of our universe from way back when.
Keep asking questions.
Keep watching your shadows.
Did you know, Crow prefers homemade banana bread?
Complete with heartache and suffering and that bitches ignorant head!
Unique is your bestie! Your homie beyond death you’ll never part.
Unique is pure mind-games, surreal like Dali art.
Unique is present, past and your future.
Unique is your tears as they profusely flow.
Unique is the end game and that is no joke.
Crow is listening to your thoughts.
Unique is above average in fact beyond the range of online surroundings.
Unique is Pandora’s Box in a misunderstanding.
Unique is the gift of lava burning through your soul.
Unique does not exist in this world, therefore you’ll never know.
Remember to close your windows and lock your doors, the evil one flies through the night…
I prepared dinner.
Crow and I ate until our stomachs were unable to accept another bite.
Even though I spent a whole day cooking you.
I was meant to type FOR YOU.
People screenshot everything these days and remind you years later…
