Two Poems by Anthony Ward


Fear erupts inside my ear,

The sound of blazing

Submerging my brain

With piercing pressure,

My body all pins and needles

Until I’m feeling pixelated-

As if being transmitted,

And I’m gone...


I remain the trivial sentiment of yesterdays arduousness

The significant consequence of my identity

I’m the silence beneath the space between purpose

Nothing but the position of my consideration

I am everything I was meant to be

And a whole lot more

I am you when you cannot be yourself

I am after all

A human being

Part of the universe

My consciousness corroding my aberration

Evaporating into effervescence

Where I am the suddenness of existence

In this immediacy of eternity

Experiencing the intensity of the moment

As I forfeit certainty

And liberate myself from the confines of conscience…

Anthony tends to fidget with his thoughts in the hope of laying them to rest. He has managed to lay them in a number of literary magazines including The Faircloth Review, Drunk Monkeys, Jellyfish Whispers, Turbulence, Underground, The Autumn Sound, Torrid Literature Journal and The Rusty Nail, amongst others.
