Sway

The
Shadows
Stretched
And swayed
From low
Hanging
Ceiling
Lamps.

img_1240_birds_eye_view_of_a_tropical_reef_400As rings
Of purple
Danced
In circles
In the
Warm
Chocolate
Coloured
Room:
Falling on
Wicker
Chairs,
Cracking
Candle
Flames,
Breadbaskets
And remnants
Of cold meats
And cheese.

The
Pungent
Warm aromas
Filling the room;
As the stylus
Nib scratched
Across the
Coarse
Paper.

He could
Hear the
Interspersed
Cracking
'Pop-pop'
Of pistols
From back
Alleyways,
Mingling with
Metallic sounds
Of garbage bins
Being disturbed by
Cats, and the
Midnight clicking
Of high heels that
Suddenly
Stopped under
Street corner
Lamps.

He
Continued
And the ink
Flowed
And
Flowed:
He became
Dependant
On that
Flowing ink
And scratching
Stylus.

As though
The very
Act somehow
Defined him,
Allowed him
To continue
With the
Burden
And futility;
To create
His own
World.

To live with
Rebellion,
Freedom,
And
Passion.

Not even
The scent
Of musk
Perfume,
Soft hair,
Or the
Wobbling
Breasts
In the nearby
Bed could
Deter him.

He couldn't
Stop now,
He couldn't be
Swayed from
This act of
Defiance.

He ran
His hand
Across
The stubble
On his face,
And he
Considered
It all;as
Music of
Handel
And then
Ravel
Hissed
From the
Radio.

He was
Aware,
Awake;
To stop
Now
Was
Suicide.
