Poet's Corner

End credits

I just want to be your end credits

I want to be there when you read it

I am the watcher in the dark

no spark 

can light my face

a detective case

cannot solve what I have been doing behind the scenes

Somewhere I appear in your dreams

I am the blind messenger

loving you 

beyond the do’s and don’ts

the passages that lead to me

say my name

you can blame me

my pain is loneliness 

a blood stain 

cold clamminess like rain

but heart is on fire for you all the same.

About the author

Dan Hooks

Hi there my name is Dan Hooks and I am a poet.

My poetry has many diverse themes from madness to the mundane, from fantasy and fable to philosophical and the darkness of reality (whatever that is).

I have been writing since I was 18 and have inspired other artists such as Benjamin Heine who created an piece of art work called”filled with fire” from my poem called “Freedom”. That poem was inspired from a quote from Nelson Mandela saying “we are free to be free”. Writing I find is a collaborative process.

I have also written other poems which have been used in language courses in America, Canada and Australia. One of which is called “poem on identity” and the other one is “Antithesis”.

I have a soundcloud account in which I post poems to music and my spoken word pieces. I find spreading my work on various social media platforms really useful for presenting my work.

I am also fond of travelling and have climbed Mount Fuji in Japan visited Finland skied in both USA in keystone Colorado and Whistler in Canada. I find perspective can be found in travelling to other countries and it also helps you appreciate other cultures as well your own.
