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…

Steve

Just like a wide proton arc, they illuminated their path with a deep hue, highlighting everything they came across radiating warmth as if it were a nuclear power posessing those around them with a rare light that was fuelled by hope. Almost like a river constructed of light flowing towards the moon, this was a…

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…

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…

Foreign infatuation

We found each other in a stranger’s land. Exploring rivers, mountains and each other. Finding something familiar within each other, even though our tongues were foreign. An infatuation limited in days from the start relying on nothing more than chance. Happy in the safety of our hearts, the rum hit us and we went to…
