|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…

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….

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…

1 Green Bottle

This is something slightly different- lately I’ve been examining the way people’s actions carry an echo and intertwine with each other which is what I have attempted to capture here. Bottles thrown in to the recycle bin as the pub closes. The clatter echoes around awaking the tramp lying in a small sheltered ledge. A…

Tarnished

People do not come in to our lives as blank canvases, I think that is why we adore babies so much, for there are no marks are upon them, nothing has influenced them yet. But everyone you meet however significant you become to them has had a life lived before you and without you. They…

Shoutout to my ex: Radar

I like the way you still keep one eye on me as we circle this room, we still never quite lose track of each other while in the same vicinity. You would still jump to my defence if I needed it, you still hate that I talk to him, that he’s a close friend, But we…

Morning Routine

Sleep in our eyes Alarm clock ringing  Begging for another hour I wriggle around But you hold on to me Grab me and pull me back Sun blazing doesn’t matter Here is where we stay In each other’s arms  Like nothing awaits outside  Coffee leads us to the kitchen I make breakfast, you watch the…

Change The World

You have: feet in your shoes, brains in your head, a heart in your chest, Keep them on the ground & you don’t go around with your: nose in the air, hands dipped in gold, knees bent down to stone You can make a change to the world, a valuable one, a conscientious one.  Use…

Shooting stars

View this post on Instagram Receipt #7 I think we had it wrong about shooting stars, they aren't for us to wish on but just glimmers of hope showing us what we have the potential to be. Maybe some day, I'll be better at life. #shootingstars #poetsofig #night #hope #toughtimes #writing #handwritten #writersofinstagram #someday #wish…

Coffee Table

The coffee table.  Not just a table or somewhere to put things but an insight in to a life. The books, the magazines show an interest in a life beside your own. The coffee mug and cafetière tells me how you like your coffee. The lighter and empty wine glass with your pink lipstick marks…
