Preparing Shrouds



This panic, magnetic.

It latches, attaches

Destroys the aesthetic.

I scratch til I bleed,

You feed off my need

Delicious disease

So ripe for release.

I mumble the words

Stumble with the herd

Chaotic, hypnotic

Regressing, disturbed.



Demons carouse

Stalking the fallen

Preparing shrouds.

Published by Fractured Faith Blog

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

          1. I can’t reply in kind
            For, my sore behind’s
            My chances to rhyme.
            I had no expression
            No specific impression
            To share, bear, or tear
            As I care for Depression:
            The artist’s repression.
            This piece;
            Its release –
            ‘Shrouded beast
            No mind’s peace’
            Made me wish that I can
            With a swish of my hand
            Plate a dish like Stephan (had to rhyme)
            So I answered, ‘Daaaang, man.’


      1. No need to apologize – I post a fair bit of darkness myself. It is beautiful, and after all that’s life isn’t it? Dark and light and all shades in between. May light cross your path today and stay a good long while. 🙂
