I’m an adult, I swear!

There is nothing quite like living with a parent when you are an adult to make you feel like a fucking child. I have a number of friend people in a similar situation to me. Finding themselves in a space in their life where they have had to either move back home or simply share… Continue reading I’m an adult, I swear!

blank space nothings

I cannot see where it is you hide But I feel that you may be close The space between us now is greater than it ever has been Like the home stretch marathon Distance and time and space are only relevant to what isn't really there Sometimes it is the spaces between music notes that… Continue reading blank space nothings

the me I am

Hi... Maybe you can help me... Do you know where I am? Not where I am right now, but the me I am looking for? The me I am looking for is about my height. She is sort of like me in looks... maybe a little prettier. She is definitely less awkward. Her words do… Continue reading the me I am

flower, when plucked

Flowers need the Earth, the ground, to be flowers But the ground is still the ground without the flower The flower does remain the flower, when plucked. Once a pretty little thing to look upon, but soon wilting, dying. The ground doesn't need anything to be itself. It is always the ground. If someone asks… Continue reading flower, when plucked

So, today I had one of those weird days... something shitty happened the other day and I had to wait till Monday (today) to fix it. As it turns out, because of the shitty thing (which was solved within a few hours) I will be getting a "pay rise." I say "pay rise" because technically… Continue reading make the darkness your fucking bitch

True – 5 loves

Feeding the hungry While you starve, yourself I have no business being here A strange land Language foreign No interpreter present Can you never eat But still exist? And at what point do your own food stores run out? Surely there is only so much you can give How do you know you like something… Continue reading True – 5 loves

damage and flourishing

Letting go of past sins Sins that were not my own Flowering branches that once stretched high Axe-hacked Burned at the stake Witch hunts were your favourite pastime Shovel digging to find my roots Too twisted Knotted Strong For you to get to Rejecting the damage And flourishing with new growth Bright green shoots grow… Continue reading damage and flourishing
