the library was locked and bolted and it smelt of age. The key was hidden under the stairs behind the shelf holding the emergency candles and matches.
I opened the door and saw that there was an old man writing at a desk with his back to me. He was using a quill pen and coughing.Posted By david lloyd On 11.25.2012 @ 3:24 am
All passion had been spent that day in Brighton. We had checked into our favourite hotel. It was our secret bolt hole away from prying eyes.
We had been meeting for six months and every time was different. Today something didnt work. She resisted my attempts at foreplay and I failed to get an erection. Was it just a flirtation in the end?Posted By david lloyd On 11.11.2012 @ 2:40 am
I lost interest in her endless talking. She was a counsellor but had no capacity to share a silence. When she was about to take a breath she would put her hand out as if to suggest I shouldnt respond. That night I left the phone off the hook.

My muse died in tragic circumstances and I lost the ability to be creative. Years went by and each month my frustration grew. Had I completely failed as a writer. Where was my talent?
