Circle line

Stepping carefully down the slippery steps of the station down to the platform not wanting to fall in to you. Treading carefully behind the yellow line to mind the gap and debating which carriage to take not committed yet.  Jumping on and our train blasts off like a bullet, going so fast, I can’t catch…

Stoplights

This one is for my Daddy who picked me up after every shift and every social gathering if he could always, who moves me from house to house in Sheffield and always drives to see me. ❤ We approach the roundabout and the lights go red, you’ll be moaning about people only using one lane….

Flying

Since forever, I have wanted my super power to be flying, whenever I got asked what it would be if I was a superhero. I have always looked up and admired the way planes paint those white lines through a fresh blue sky and always wonder where they are from, where they are going and…

Cold Coffee

The sun has returned from its hiatus and gleams on the front of cars And it makes me miss you, cos you are summer to me, you remind me of fresh white linen and sun blazing through the blinds, fruit juice on those lazy mornings, my eyes open just to see your cute sleepyness when I…

Young & Alive: Skip

In a drunken haze, I spun around and you were calling my name, it took my eyes a while to find you. There you were, stood amongst all the other party goers in the darkness of a warm Saturday night on West Street. Jokingly greeting me with a nickname, I’d aquired the previous year, we hugged and…

Chemistry lessons

You told me I could tell you anything, that you cared about me always even though I warned you I was messy yet somehow you made me feel enough and that I was protected and safe. You expected a small chaos like a coffee cup without a coaster leaving a ring on rich wood instead…

Extinguished

I set myself on fire wanted to burn myself to ashes but you wouldn’t let me. You came in trying to extinguish my flames first water, next foam then gas but nothing was quite enough. Nothing could stop the burning emptiness inside, a hollow chest, a heart that was only beating. I yearned to feel…

dancing with the angels

I am so jealous, gorgeous girl as I watch all these people dressed divinely walk through those same doors that we did after months of deciphering on ASOS. I see them come in and witness the committee heads being bossy about the decorations, I hope I was never that bad! I witness them take their…

Receipt #35

Hundreds of rum fuelled memories in these bars: from the stupid times downing whatever pint while my sports team egged me on, the civillised cocktails dressed up to the nines with the girls as if we were on Sex and the City, the late night deep talks that went in to the early hours with…

Streets in the Sky

The old building stands tall but gloomy instead of majestic like it once promised. An architect’s vision turned in to a reality granting him success. It was supposed to be revolutionary, ahead of its time. There was a generation that once described it as paradise. The grass once looked green and the sky was once…
