We’re going through a difficult time at the moment - I won’t go into it but suffice is to say one outcome could be pretty crap. A deep fault of mine is that I allow worry to wrap itself round my heart and squeeze ever so painfully. So much so I find it hard to … Continue reading Thriving?
I thought it a shame, as you click clicked That you missed the warmth of a small body, And the softest hair at his nape. As you swipe swiped, I wanted to name you apathy, but for your self-regard. I swallow around the tight ball To collect blinks, a lifted chin, a Precious smile. You … Continue reading Poem: Busy
Poem: Are you breathing?
Throbbing and dry. These are the eyes, Straining to see you, Through the darkness. Dimming then bright. Those are the stars, Splashing around you, Wonky star light.
Bullies, cowards and empty cupcake sleeves
I don't normally read the gossip columns, or at least, i don't normally admit to reading them; but i was moved to post this on my Facebook today: Was there a woman who saw those awful pictures of Nigella Lawson who didn't think "If he does this in public what does he do behind closed … Continue reading Bullies, cowards and empty cupcake sleeves
