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?
White horses met us on the shore. We; wind whipped and wide eyed, Braced to meet their thundering gait. Not the romantic amble I'd hoped; The jutting Jurassic coastline stole my gaze, The violent air took your words away. And although your hand clutched mine, Your wonder was at the force of nature, Which pushed … Continue reading Poem: Dorset
Dry umbrella, sniff of summer, An invasion of butterflies. The strangest feeling Planning a meeting By internet with emoticon smiles. You were late, our first date. So, i settle with a glass of wine. Suppress exclamation, Quell expectation, But I text ‘I’m fine’. I like the buzzing, gentle muzzy Feel of the trendy gastro bar. … Continue reading A First…
The Only One
I’ve been following the news story on the shootings in Annecy, in the French Alps. I picture the four year old who was found 8 hours later, cowering under the bodies of her parents and think, what sort of human being would do that? Zeena has inspired me to start a short story… My ears … Continue reading The Only One
Trapped in my bracelet. The hazard of one. Struggle to put on, Hassle to get off. I need a firm hand, To caress my wrist, And assist, In the removal Of this bracelet.
Poem: I’m Crap at Resolutions
I’m a bit crap at resolutions, me I try to find the fusion you see Between easy, with something impressive That will raise an eyebrow, or two I try to allude to tenacity But in the end my resolve to be - good melts, like the ice in a baileys dream. Or, disappears – like … Continue reading Poem: I’m Crap at Resolutions
Poem: The Resolution
I'll allow the tv to collect dust; Fame, drama, lust and celebrity; White noise, no poise just Do not bring you nearer to me. I'm putting a curb on my tongue; Lies, gossip, fake intimacy Dark fun - all leave hearts stung and, does not bring you nearer to me. I’ll stick to these resolutions. … Continue reading Poem: The Resolution
Don’t Text When You’re Drunk
I blame laughter and Sauvignon Blanc; Friday night, an inept DJ. I wonder how you read my misspelled words. Did they whisper or shout at 2am? Mute in the light; grey and painful, Each idiom deciphered, pored over. Now expectancy fills the space in my chest, Heavy and humid like my damp flat. Present residue, … Continue reading Don’t Text When You’re Drunk
Blasé about dirty windows
I hit a learning curve today. What happens when you roll out of church at 1.30ish on an extremely sunny Sunday and realise you’ve not made plans to see anyone that day? Panic? Another thing to add to the list of things i miss now that i'm not in a relationship. To be honest, i'd … Continue reading Blasé about dirty windows
I asked for little things at Greenbelt
So, God is talking to me. From the moment a work colleague, Luke told a story in the Morning meeting about not forgetting to ask for the little things…I’ve been hearing Him. Luke, who staggers his work hours to avoid crowded tube’s after 7/7, makes a point of noting who is sitting near him in … Continue reading I asked for little things at Greenbelt
