Anthony Ward

Searching for a Signal

I looked into your eyes
Staring into space
Nothing but darkness
The light of your eyes
That once brightened my world-
Burnt out

Dying in the density
That pulled you down
And drew me in
To your vacuous immensity
Searching for a glimmer
That’ll re-ignite us
And lighten the burden of your wait

Remaining static
Like a screen of fretful pixels
Anxious for coherence
To form a picture we could both relate.

Anthony Ward has been writing in his spare time for a number of years. He has been published in a number of literary magazines including Enhance, Turbulence, Drunk Monkeys, Speech Therapy, Thousand Shades of Grey, Ginger Piglet, Torrid Literature Journal and The Rusty Nail, amongst others.
