Wet Dream

In my ugly room
Moonlight is spat through the open window.
Outside the reticent rustling leaves are
Embraced by the wind in a sordid waltz.
God lifts the curtain, shines over my sinful stage,
His spotlight focussed on my cracked heart.


Of she...

Faceless, yet sexual, her hot desperate body sings.
"No trouble, please," she moans,
Sees I shot one lofty mouthful.

God snuffs out the spotlight, tearfully lowers the curtain.



Sir David Attenborough, English broadcaster and natural historian, was born today in 1926.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
