Stuck In The Middle

Stuck In The Middle

written by: Freya Pickard

left dangling
forgotten, unwanted
crossing the line
stuck in the middle
neither one thing
or another
half in light
half in dark
suspended midway
betwixt heaven and earth

such a deadly arrow
to bring down a god
a useless tool
in the hand
of a primate

JULY 2022 AUTHOR OF THE MONTH at Spillwords.com
Pushcart Prize nominee, Freya Pickard, is the quirky, unusual author of The Kaerling series, an epic fantasy set in the strange and wonderful world of Nirunen. A cancer survivor, she writes mainly dark fantasy tales and creates expressive poetry in order to leach the darkness from her soul. Her aim in life is to enchant, entertain and engage with readers through her writing. She finds her inspiration in the ocean, the moors, beautifully written books and vinyl music (particularly heavy metal and rock). She enjoys Hatha Yoga, Bhangra and Yogalates and in her spare time creates water colours and pastel drawings of the worlds in her head.
