29 Days Until The End – Twenty-Nine – Wrapped In Words

The question is asked,

It’s the same every time,

so I close my eyes,

dreaming of something new,

dreaming of a place,

where suffering is something few,

people have to face,

and the question is not asked,

so come with me,

let us be free,

to be who we are,

without judgement or hate,

without others telling you,

how you should live your life,

for when they lay down in bed,

in their putrid shit of lies,

they care naught for you,

or how you bend in pain,

then you ask it again,

the question asked evermore,

the question?

What’s Twenty-nine times forty-four,

don’t think it’s easy,

don’t be so smug,

because the answers not,

one thousand, two hundred and seventy-six.

People are surprised when reading Matthew’s stories that he’s a sane forty something year old, happily married, father of one, employed full time and dream of dark disturbing things that any sane person would never even contemplate thinking of. But it's true, he’s toyed with writing for most of his adult life, but has always found the peg a writer must fit into is not the shape he wished to be. His writing can be described as lamenting, long, concussive (yes it smashes you in the head), compulsive, and stuffed with rhythmic communication and violence, let’s not forget the violence. His own opinion on his writing is this, “You see, I don't just want the words to seep into your mind, but into your soul, showing you images of blood and beauty through, volatile language, violence, sex, love and sin. My muse takes different shapes, and every now and then you can see her shining her wicked smile in some of my stories, tempting you with her promises, but ripping your heart out instead.” So have a look, and take a seat in my wayward ride, as you join me while I purge through, this twisted road of madness.
