Deadly and Gorgeous version 2 – Kadeem Beresford-James

Instruments that don’t need quick fingers,
ideas never noted that always linger.
Hyperbolic emotions and stifled voices,
oceans of madness and poorly made choices.
Minds made by mine must be deadly and gorgeous.
Hopes turned to rust by insidious forces.
Hate with no malice. Love with no kiss.
Feet without ankles and hands without wrists.
The darkness awaits, ink mixed with coffee,
and sunrise approaches with no-one to stop me.


is bad with names, good with details, and enjoys a good drink. Previous editor of Roehampton Writing Society’s Anthology 2012 and co-founder of Talking to Strangers.
