Requiem for a Marriage Pt. 2: A Selection of Poems

Requiem for a Marriage Pt. 2: A Selection of Poems


Alone set adrift I’m dying 
For one last taste of your rage

The sun burns like hot regret 
Your stare stripping my skin

Beckoned by an innocent island 
In search of forced salvation

My raft breaks in the shallows 
I’m stranded here now

Looking out to the horizon 
I can’t help but wonder

Where you are now

About The Author

Sam Barrowcliffe

I am nineteen years old and will begin studying English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Warwick in September. Since starting at Mouthing Off as Creative Writing Editor, I have written and published a number of short stories and can’t wait to share even more. My favourite genres are horror and science – fiction and I take great inspiration from the likes of Rod Serling, Charlie Kauffman, H.P Lovecraft, Christopher Nolan and Phillip K. Dick. In the future, I hope to follow my dream of becoming a professional screenwriter and novelist, following in the footsteps of my idols. I look forward to publishing even more fiendish tales and I hope people will continue to enjoy reading them, as much as I have writing them!
