Message from Writer

Aspiring writer and tea addict. I love reading, theatre and music and when I am not talking I am generally singing. I write mostly poetry and short stories but am always eager to try new styles and genres. Any feedback is really appreciated!

interlude

FREE WRITING

she smiles a lifetime of longing. perhaps she
is rejoicing in the lives we are heading back to,
parties and exams and lying on crisp lawns in the
wake of another fleeting lover, the film strip of
our youth reeling endlessly before us into
dust and sparkle: or perhaps she is counting
the seconds before she must retreat once again
into that empty house, hanging memories on
the walls and replaying the echoes of our laughter
into the icy night....

pointless conversation

FREE WRITING

Do you ever feel like things aren’t real?

What do you mean?

Like things are.. I don’t know… different from how you’ve been told. Like they’re not really there – or if they are they’re certainly not as there as they should be. Like, you’ll be drying your hands and suddenly you won’t be able to really feel them drying at all. Your head starts, kind of, spinning, not in an unpleasant way but in a soothing, detached way. And...

The right words

FREE WRITING

I am struggling to understand a world
Where life is not a fable -
A manuscript tossed, the pages furled,
Upon a writer's table.

I can't create the earth I want
With the movement of my pen -
People bleed more than ink and stars
And don't rise up again.

A lifetime can't be shaped into
The corners of a smile -
And minutes can't be stretched to fill
The cracks in every tile.

You can't give retribution
For every...

Departure

FREE WRITING

I am walking through space
Pacing lost stars
My footprints trailing behind me as
Dust hangs in hollow air
Silence stings
Between the movements of the symphony
The audience poised for a release they cannot
Be sure is coming.
It is the room above the party,
The muffled song of the earth echoing
Through soundless expanse.

I trace the cosmos, my eyes bleeding
Fuzzy lights into the blackness
I tell myself that I am happy, safe.
This, surely, is freedom....

Ticks and nods and broken hearts

FREE WRITING

In the end, it was silence that saved her.  

Her mother used to say that she was born in noise. Her screaming melody echoed into the shaky darkness and her heart, vibrant and fierce, seemed to burst from her tiny chest. She was forged in fire and blazed with an inexplicable freedom, thundering from her twisting fingers as she painted her pillow with broken strands of hair. Life was fast and hard, a series of ticks and nods and broken...
