October is coming. . .

   October is mere hours away.  Before long the sun will fade from the sky;  fog will fill the corners;  shadows will move next to all we know; and the world will become an unread Bradbury tale; and my mood will darken, my soul will turn sullen and I will. . .WRITE.  I am a horror writer, and this is my month to get back where I am supposed to be.  This is what I do, I will strive to not disappoint.

Abbey Road Vocal Tracks Isolated

  Not much to say about this except - enjoy these amazing harmonies.  Damn, what a nice little band!!!


"Darkness Looms"


James Patrick Lockett

Darkness looms,

an ever increasing pitch

that threatens to envelope

my mind, my heart, my soul.


falling deeper into that

cavernous void;

a step further into the wood

that shields my surroundings

from ever light.

I hold my breath,

as if it were the last thing I own,

my last link to the light,

as wings wrap themselves around my eyes.

Not the wings of angels,

they are the darkness.

Tight, they close off all that I know.

I reach out for some unknown gate,

touching the latch, I release my last


and give in to the void,
