Time alone.

Time alone.

David M. Beecroft

I wanted time alone.
No-one near me.
A peaceful, quiet place where no-one can touch me.
Even alone, as far as I can take my mind from others, there is no peace.
No respite.
No place I can crawl into to escape the weight that bears me down.
Nor can I lay myself down to sleep.
For sleep is where the dreams dwell.
And the dreams my unfettered mind can conjure are terrifyingly worse than what my waking mind can create.
In some respects I have to admire my sub-conscious.
It is no mean feat to make me feel worse than my conscious mind can.
Perhaps there is a positive to be found in excelling at the negatives?

About davidmbeecroft

Hello and welcome to my blog. Please feel free to have an explore. My name is David Beecroft. I am 38 years old. I co-founded and ran a small scale touring theatre company called Screwed & Clued in 1998. I went on to tour the Canadian Fringe Theatre Festival circuit over the following five years. I have written six original plays, the last ‘The Poe Show’ won a Best in Fest award at the 2014 Ottawa Fringe Festival. I worked in a social care setting for ten years and now work in a special needs school. I have sent my first novel off to agents and considering self-publishing if that does not work. I co-host a radio show on Surrey Hills Community Radio called Daves of the Week where we feature charities for a six week period. I live with my fiance and two pet Degus. I started this blog when suffering from depression and attending therapy, so a large part of this blog was about my experience and thoughts of that. Since then I am in a much better place and I write about life after depression and how I stay (or try to) ahead of it happening again. I also like to look at the happier sides of life and try to put a positive spin on serious subjects.
