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



          Come join me by the river

We’ll sing songs of a hundred hands held

          We’ll weep for the thousand unresolved rows

                       We’ll laugh about the time you fell in the mud

And talk of the day you ended this for good

Then when that’s all over

            Maybe the stream of hate will stop

But until you sit beside me

                       We’re destined to do this

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!
