Imagine

FREE WRITING

Imagine waking up.
The silence is soft as petals,
blossom, pink and everywhere.
Imagine all the beautiful things
condensed into a single moment
and preserved forevermore.
The sky like an ocean, big and blue
and glittering, the shape of your 
heartbeat, the buzz of emotions
you cannot name like a hundred thousand
bees building a hive in your soul.
Imagine being free.
We are temporary, momentary,
and yet infinite.
Imagine living not for the way time
passes but instead the way it feels.
The sound of...

What If I Fly?

FREE WRITING

I wonder what it means to soar,
to close your eyes and fall headfirst 
into the swollen night
whilst clutching at nothing to hold
you back, I wonder how it feels
to fly beyond the darkness you think
will consume you and rise above
the shuddering sun.

to let go of every breath locked in
aching lungs and hold on to every smile
which haunts your wide, bright eyes,
I wonder how it...

Hope is such a fragile word,
soft yet sharp, shattering.
Hope is swollen then swallowed
then lost

Hope, like a rainbow, is born
as a result of an oxymoron.

Hope is us. Hope is pulling back

Red Brick Wall

FREE WRITING


how large and oppressive
time can feel when you observe it
as a suffocating whole 
a red brick wall
instead of smashed bricks
individual days
how small it makes you feel
sometimes I am sure that I am
nothing more than dust
on a dying planet
waiting for the vast, mocking sun
to swallow me whole

some days it feels as though 
time has been or will be
obliterated completely
and all that remains of that red brick wall
is a...
