Tongue Tied.

Of love I do speak,
I speak of it often,
But I don't know the right words,
To keep you by my side.

I write often of desire,
It haunts my written words,
But I have lost the right words,
The words to draw you to my bed.

Lawrence Cottam 2015
Know my City by it’s Cats,
They know all of it’s secret places,
Follow now these furry guides,
They’ll try and not lead you astray.

Feel protected in my Home by it’s Hounds,
They will not stray from your side,
They be fierce and they are loyal,
These Dogs will guard you while you slumber.

Know the tales of my Land from it’s Birds,
They know so many songs and riddles,
Let their many tunes set your soul to flight,
And their voices will guide you to where my bones now lay.

Lawrence Cottam 2015.
Beware Hope.

Hope can be cruel,
Each new day can look bright,
But when Hope can quickly flee,
And leave you in the cold dark night.

Hope can be flighty,
Staying just out of your reach,
Then Hope can suddenly dance away,
And Despair slips once more into the breach.

Hope can cause great harm,
Especially when she drives away Fear,
Because once Hope slips once more from your heart,
Fear and Sorrow can once more steal near.

Let's see. I am a writer of a variety of genre in a variety of sizes from short stories to long form 500page plus sized works. I write poetry as well.

I dabble in weird toon work, having my own 'strip' called Strange Days and different works on a few different characters like Bedlam Boy (The Master of Chaos) or Freezy the Bipolar Bear to name two.

That's about it about what I do.

I am married, have a beautiful wife and two awesome sons.

And I cannot think of anything else to put.

I know I am behind on answering comments etc. Sorry about that. This is the time of the year for me I get the most writing done, hence the flood of poems.


I will be out of communication from 10am today and for 4 days in total so you will all be safe from more writing for a bit. :)


I was hoping to have new pics uploaded before I left but that fell through.


I will answer all comment people have posted for the new poems and thank those who have faved new pieces next week.


Please keep my wonderful Wife and Muse in your thoughts as she is having surgery this week, hence the trip.

Love the new batch of pics friend.    It would be great to see this in a book one day.  I'd definitely get a copy.  

Your writing is also exceptional.  I especially like the dark ones.  Probably because I love the genre of horror a lot.  But I could see a lot of those poems at the beginning of a good movie and such.

Anyway, awesome work as usual.  I'm glad you have an office set up.  It means more goodies for us all.  :bounce:

Keep up the great work friend!  :#1:

I am working on getting the four lined poems self published. I am also working on some massive long form pieces that i want to try and get published one day.
With the pics I am trying to get them put on t-shirts etc.

More work being uploaded now.

Cool I'll have to check them out.  :D

And that's super cool that you're working on getting things published.  I'd love to see your work in a book someday.  :thumbsup:
