Introducing New Sudden Denouement Writer Vicki Wilson

The pause

It is the pause

Between heartbeats

Where I await the echo

To signal that it can beat again…

…that I can breathe again…

… that I can’t…

It is the pause

Haunted by a promise

The prelude

Of pain

Where in slow motion

I scramble

With broken compass

And bloody nails

To find finger-holds

In the grey edge

Of the moment

Frozen in the shattered glass

Of the bauble

That once had

housed the world

Within a world

Before I

am falling

To moral paste

Beneath the agony of cloven behoves

Which beget the disentangle

Of limbs

Of lips

Of hearts.

I am an amateur poet, published author and professional technical analyst… all of these things mean I basically solve puzzles for a living, and to keep from dying. I know this because I died once. Metaphorically. Six years of a slow death by industrialised decision making. In the end I was so numb to living I ceased to exist. But burn-out has a silver lining, you wake up and all you have left is steel and the rich black of sticky charcoal to make your mark. I am still learning how to hold a pen, how to form words into a living thing, but my scratchings are mine, they are made with the corpse of who I was. I offer them as evidence I exist.

I have recently published a children’s book – written and illustrated by myself – under the banner of dragonflypublishing. You can find me there writing my next one: https://www.facebook.com/dragonflypublishing.au.

      And thank you for the welcome 🙂 it is my pleasure to be here.
      I am in Australia – so all your wonderful comments came in while I was sleeping. What a brilliant wake-up.
