D=S X T

The sadness has returned to his voice again, I can hear the cracks in it even over the phone, a year later and they still break my heart. A year since you lost your battle and we all still feel it, your absence felt most when the seasons change, yet your state does not. It’s…

|H O L D ON // L E T GO.

Hold on because we need you, Hold on because the tumours haven’t wrapped themselves around all of you, Hold on because there is so much we have left to do together, we could take a canoe and paddle out across a wide lake breathing in the fresh air admiring the trees along the way Hold…

Pizza box 

She was waiting for me as I exited the shop, I stepped off the shop’s step, looked down and there she was. Her eyes widened as she saw the warm cardboard blue box I was carrying with the two white dots. I lowered myself to her level and handed it to her.  She opened it…

Once again 

So here you are, once again, Tears streaming down your face, Shaking and fearing something you don’t even know of yet You’re sat on the toilet floor hugging your knees struggling to breathe, And for those 10 minutes it all feels so painful Like time has frozen and you are still thirteen  At school with…

Manchester

So they’ll detonate a few bombs in throughout our great cities, kill our friends and families, but refuse to destroy our spirits, because after all, we built this, from nothing We used to live in stick houses and make fire with our bare hands, from that we discovered bricks and glass, we created paths, carriages…

Pounce

He was waiting for me, On a warm night, little did I know as I hit the flush, That once I unlocked that door, He would pounce like a panther, Push me in to the cubicle, bash my head against the wall, I thought I’d scream, but no sound came, He stole more than just…

Saturday Morning

Waking up, me chirpy and annoying and you groggy pulling me in to you so close I could barely breathe, I’d make one of my silly faces or something to make you laugh and ease you in to the day, Pulling  my pyjamas on, I’d get up and put on a pot of coffee, Then…

Shadow Definition

And not so long ago, I was a shadow, full on the inside, within myself yet I hid my definition behind the sun’s ray. It made me doubt every thought, every word, the light shining on me made me want to run feeling awkward and unsure, the heat gave me red cheeks and sweaty palms….
