The Clock of Life Affirming Energy


There’s a clock inside my head,

Ticking, slicing,

The cogs keep  turning,

The metal never stops




I talk to you, a white divide,

Your lower lip is  open,

My voice clamped shut,

Rigid, a metal brace


 I see blue,

Dreams of you,

Your perfection astounds me,

I clench my jaw and scream.



 My eye is blue, black, iris,

My legs black in motion,

My lashes mascara thick,

I cannot blink.



The pathway of  my life,

Is a cobweb’s mesh,

Fine, illusive,

A Gossamer dream



Those Dandelion seed heads,

Stand atop metal,  blue sky stalks,

My time piece floods,

A blue black rust.



 My hour glass is nearly empty,

It slips and slides,

Filling up,

Last threads of life affirming energy.

Hi. Welcome to my blog: M J Mallon - Kyrosmagica Publishing. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer, my first YA fantasy novel The Curse of Time - Book 1 - Bloodstone is set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on my blog and on Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.
