Paul Tristram- Two Poems & Sketch

Paul Tristram is a Welsh writer who has poems, short stories, sketches and photography published
in many publications around the world, he yearns to tattoo porcelain bridesmaids instead of digging
empty graves for innocence at midnight; this too may pass, yet.

Buy his books ‘Scribblings Of A Madman’ (Lit Fest Press)

‘Poetry From The Nearest Barstool’ at

And a split poetry book ‘The Raven And The Vagabond Heart’ with Bethany W Pope

I Warn You Away

She is extra-terrestrial
on the inside,
a predatory changeling
with powers
forged in the dark side.

She is only capable
of selfish feelings
so her weaknesses
are strange and many,
they are indeed a sticky web.

I have felt the force,
tasted the flame,
survived the nightmare
and now a half-being
I warn you away.

Not My Type

Still she knocked at my door
tormenting the wood with her aggression,
squaring up like a boxer
to the wrong side of the spy hole,
flipping the letter box with her fingers
as if annoyed by it being there.
She usually sat out there for hours,
I telephoned for strippers,
flowers, balloons and food.
Placing my feet into starting blocks
I menaced the hallway, sucking on my gimp mask
and waiting for the door to come alive.
