A Final Holiday

So drab and colourless,
the sky loomed overhead
And brought that doom-filled feeling,
The one I’ve learned to dread.

I scream into the void
The dark and dangerous abyss,
The breeze whips away my scarf.
I hear a resound, a sigh, a hiss.

“Come, on Jump” I hear them say,
A torment from a fateful past,
I step back from that final edge,
This was not the first time, nor the last.

I did not surrender, I didn’t fall
I had the strength and found the way,
This time I did not heed the call,
of death, that final holiday.


My Name is Kristian and I live in the South East of England. I have been writing Fiction and poems since I was a child, but never shared them with anyone. Back in January 2018, I attended a Creative Writing Course at City Lit Academy in London and this opened the floodgates of my imagination. I then started my blog, Talesfromthemindofkristian.wordpress.com

I have written short stories in various genre’s including horror, murder mystery and fantasy and also enjoy writing poetry when the urge takes me.
