Gareth Culshaw Debuts

Gareth lives in Wales. He hopes one day to achieve something special with the pen.



I was the seagull following
the trawler. The smell of life
Hooked my senses.

I took a journey for years.
Hoping to catch up,
become a part of the sentence.

But when I did I realised
The boat was full of rotting
Dead fish that said nothing.

Words that had been spoken
now lay dying. I had
missed the conversations.

I was always too late.
Following a story that I thought
I should be involved in.

But he was always pulling away
The boat. Keeping it to himself.
So I travelled the seas alone.



The night has taken away
The colour of the trees.
And the moon sits
Like a distant memory of the sun.

The mountains have lost
Their height. A coldness awakes.
My feet are tired but refreshed,
They are alive and unknowingly

Taken out of the coma
Of walking tarmac and carpet.
Stars candle flicker as a
Field of butterflies.

I should be alone but am
More aware of myself
Than ever. In this black

Ocean of passing time
