Our Children’s Story



The rolling film

The ticker tape

The white van that feels no pain

The eye witness “who saw nothing“

The slow counting of numbers

“Is that 1 or 13?”


The rolling film

Over her eyes

The white van speeding towards her

Imagining the screams


This is our children’s bedtime story

David R Mellor

Born 1964, (Liverpool, England) difficult birth, didn’t find my voice until my youth. Years of thinking I was nobody and treated as such. However, hit the paper papering over the scars. Found understanding and belief through words. I have been published and performed widely from the BBC, The Tate, galleries and pubs and everything in between.

My poems are autobiographical, others topical and several my take on life. Hope you enjoy reading as much as I have enjoyed writing. Please feel free to share your thoughts on links below.
