Choose humanity <3

Today, humanity was seen in many acts of kindness around the world as it is everyday but today an extraordinary act of humanity was performed amongst the chaos of a horrendous and utterly horrific terrorist act in my favourite city in the world, London. Today, a terror attack took place in the heart of London,…

Eternal flame

Heat…Oxygen… FUEL… WE HAD IT ALL. Except… the ETERNAL. 

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…

Still

My god, you’re the one I still don’t know if I can forgive, the only one. I still flinch when people touch my stomach and am reminded of how you punched me there. I still remember you pressing my arm against a hot spoon or flicking a lighter over my wrist, I still don’t put…

I would never

After all the beautiful words I’d written,  back when I was smitten,  you now think I’m capable  of writing something so hateful.  Everything you know about my past, not many find it out that fast.  I thought you at least understood,  bring that pain to another,  I never would.  I can’t comprehend why you must,…

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…

Shoutout to my ex

You returned after three years, an apology essay and the invitation for a drink. I say returned, it wasn’t like either of us said goodbye, we decided to end together. You now think you’re still in love with me but you’re not, you’re in love with the girl I was four years ago and she’s…

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…
