Message from Writer

Don’t worry if my poetry seems dark. By putting my dark thoughts into words I actually feel free of them so the darker the poem the more positive I probably feel after writing it.

Truly You

FREE WRITING

At home in my space
Observing this place
In an instant my eyes are drawn 
To dusk and to dawn

Heart swelling and comfort found
Envying your courage
And admiring your smiles
Pure joy fills your air
As soft meets sword

How one person’s presence can change you
How they can teach you kindness and patience
And how just one person alone
May allow you to be just truly you however long you stay
Oh to be loved enough to...

Sinking Lifeboat

FREE WRITING

Enclosed in a swarm of beings
And still these hands are cold
Surrounded yet all I feel is alone
All I see are those who hide
And those who are blind 

My absence of mind left uncontrollable
And my anchors cut me loose
I drifted towards the cliffs 
But the light no longer shone
No longer blinked on their radar

Mended now and attempting return
Seeking refuge
But my flares remain over spoken 
My hard fought battle of survival again...

Love in the Shadows

FREE WRITING

This is a love often ignored-
Often seen as immature,
Less valuable or worthy of recognition- 
But to me this is a love like no other;

It is a love of companionship alone-
So strong intimacy is forgotten,
A glance of the eye, one consented hug-
All the more valuable,
All the more love.

It is the essence of maturity-
To love for the presence of another,
And to loathe their absence-
It is the peak of worthiness-
To be...

The Powerhouse of Your Life

FREE WRITING

Be wary of powerful men
Not just of the armies they command
But the power they hold over your beating heart
Their ability to break it or excite it
Be cautious of the power you’ve handed them 
And how they will utilise it

Be wary of the soul you are trusting with your mortality
And be wary of who can see

Sun Burnt Whisper

FREE WRITING

Empower my body and soul 
With the freedom of this darkness you hold
Teach me your ways of strength and silence
It’s beauty and it’s shame
Show me your values and vulnerabilities
And let me show you there is a light
The solution to our problems is eachother
Let light and dark meld within this furnace
Let purity blend with vengeance 
Release your cowering spirit to the stag
Let me share my warmth 
And you can cool me down
And...

Unloved Artistry

FREE WRITING

You love a painting
A painting of a girl with a perfect life
She never fails, never forgets anything 
She is exactly who you wish her to be
And you love her for exactly that

For when life is added 
And truth revealed
You want her back in the frame
You love who the girl can be for you
Not the girl that cries and shouts and makes mistakes
The girl that isn’t your doll 
That you can’t put next...

I Know My Body Best

FREE WRITING

You may think this ‘kindness’ you do me helps
This forced activity surrounded by people
Whilst my insides are being torn out
You may think I’m just like everyone else
That exercise will help
That getting out will erase my pain
And erase your guilt and shame

But the help that I need is not a walk or some company 
The help I need is a trip to the doctors 
To get that referral ASAP 
Not a nice cup of...

Precious Puddles

FREE WRITING

Take these tears and put them in a jar.
Keep them safe on a shelf,
And label them special.

Take these tears and think of our laughter,
Think of this smile,
And the happy moments we now share.

Take these tears so rarely seen.
These are my precious tears,
My smiling puddles.

These tears so often overtaken by my oceans of despair.
Take these tears and bring them to remind me there is happiness somewhere-
