In Dreams

Published September 19, 2013 by carlyjellis

Breathe in deep

Breathe out slow

Not tired enough to sleep

Her heart and mind full of woe

A tear rolls down her cheek

Without warning she starts to weep

Will this loneliness ever end

Will she ever find a lover and a best friend

She lies alone at night

Pondering over her plight

Willing things to change

Wishing her life could turn a page

She drifts off to sleep and into a dream

Where she has found her love

It’s all how it should be

He holds her and kisses her

Tells her she is the one

Then she suddenly wakes up

Her love has gone

She yearns for the dream to come true everyday

Never sure if it will

But continues to try anyway

Will she ever see him

Will they ever meet

She lives in hope one day he will come for her

Only then will her life be complete

Killer Book | Daily Prompt: Bookworm

Tell us about the last book you read (Why did you choose it? Would you recommend it?). To go further, write a post based on its subject matter.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us WORDS

I have a real, some what perhaps morbid interest in criminal psychology, in particular reading about serial killers, learning about the psychology behind their thinking, the why’s and what for’s. Sometimes no explanations can be found for why these people behave how they do and commit such heinous crimes as they do, but I am interested in reading about what certain psychologists believe are the reasoning’s and methods behind the madness.

The last book I read was indeed a book based on my interest of this. It is called ‘A History of British Serial Killing’ by Professor David Wilson. I chose this book because not only did it deal with this particular subject matter but also it is written by a man who is believed to be one of the best, if not the best criminal psychologist in the UK. I have read a lot of his books over the years, seen his documentaries on television and listened to him during interviews when discussing these matters. I also follow him on Twitter haha.

This book was fascinating and whilst it is primarily dealing with British serial killers, the thoughts about these can be applied to many serial killer cases throughout the history of the world. The book itself deals with not only the more famous cases of British serial killers, but also deals with the lesser known cases too. The details of the crimes themselves are dealt with, with respect and thought and do not go into too many gory details, instead this books focuses more on the actual victims of the crimes, names of people who often get forgotten about, and also the psychological aspect of these crimes, why they happened, what could have been the catalyst to begin these murderous episodes and what, in the authors mind, drove these people to continue with their crimes until they got caught. This books addresses the question of nature vs nurture, a question very often linked to these kind of crimes and not very easily answered, arguments can be given on both sides, which Professor David Wilson explores and helps the reader to understand some reasoning behind the crime.

I honestly cannot recommend this book enough to anybody who has an interest in this subject matter or an interest in wanting to learn more about the human psyche, particularly as this book has been written by an expert in this field. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and no doubt will be reading again in the near future as I was literally struggling to put it down.

Lost Love

Published April 25, 2013 by carlyjellis

I never felt your arms around me

Never felt your warm embrace

Never had the chance to hold you

Or touch your beautiful face

 

You will always be a memory of a love I never had

Would we have ever made it

That question alone drives me mad

 

The fact I can never meet you

Never show you that I care

Never have the chance to be the one

To prove that I can be there

 

I will always regret

What could have been

If only you had looked closer

If only you had seen

 

The love I have inside

I would have given it my all

I would have loved you forever

And would catch you when you fall

 

So farewell my lost love

Think fondly of me

I guess the time has now come to accept

That some things just aren’t meant to be

The Lupus Blues

Published April 25, 2013 by carlyjellis

Lupus oh Lupus

How you wear me down

You make me sad

You make me frown

 

You take and you take

You never give up

From the pains in my limbs

To the fatigue which never stops

 

Why won’t you let go

Allow me to escape

Unleash your grasp

On my body I’ve come to hate

 

One day you will be beaten

Your disease will be no more

But for now I remain silent

Quietly battling this war
