Companions

FREE WRITING

All is well. My head lies against the grass and I can already feel the salt in my hair. Warmth radiates from my cheeks; what a lovely day to have the sun as a companion. So many sounds can be heard travelling towards me, past me, away from me, all around me and everywhere - nowhere is silent. The wind howls over the hills and the waves of the sea roar to land. A lonely person would feel lonely no...

Missing

FREE WRITING

Perhaps I'll run away in the night
and then the morning will be better for us all,
I'll pack a bag and sneak out,
only the mice will watch my escape.
But then again, where would I go?
Because I know that if I disappear
off into the night somewhere foreign,
it'll not be long until I miss your arms.
I don't want to run away without your smile,
I wouldn't make it a mile without
wanting to hear your...

Stars please keep me safe

FREE WRITING

The stars. The stars are so far away, and all I want to do is reach them. But I'm stuck here for now. The frost on the ground makes it's way into me - into my bones - the kind of cold that can't be easily deterred. However I can't move my muscles to get up. How will I ever reach the stars if I can't even lift myself to stand?

Lights pass by but I've hidden myself out of...

A Cold Night

FREE WRITING

A shiny haze of mist swirled around his head, the water droplets dampening his skin just a tad. The main issue was keeping warm. The sun had set, now replaced with a solitary street lamp above his head. As for everything else, it was all lost to the deep blue of the night. He was really the only sign of life available to the naked eye - a shivering, little man under the dim glare of a street lamp. That...

My friends, the reservoir and I

FREE WRITING

An adventure; that's what we needed. Not something massive and life-changing, but just something exciting and nice. Perhaps something that will be long forgotten within days, or perhaps something that will stay warm within our cold minds - perhaps both or something completely different.
As we approached the empty bus shelter the winter sun had already begun to set, warning us upon the night. The stone wall was cold under my pocket-cosy hands and tough against my bruised knees, but...

A Room

FREE WRITING

The cold counter top began heating up underneath me - or maybe I was cooling down - it was hard to tell. It felt like something though, I'm not sure what but all my nerves were working to full capacity as I truly felt the hard press against my thighs. My feet dangled over the edge. Nothing too special about that, but as the blood rushed down through my legs I was just reminded of how small I felt right...

Empty

FREE WRITING

If I die happy
Then I will die the way
God intended me to be.
But I'm afraid that I
Will die empty and
Alone.
Afraid of it all and
Without enough faith to
Give me hope.

Death's mournful cries

FREE WRITING


Death stands over the graves
Of those who have battled with him
And lost
But the saddest are those that lie blank
From the people who were never
Recognised in their last moments
From the people who did not have
People to mourn after them
From the people that were part of
Too many to name.
The epitaph’s of these lost souls
Are left unwritten
Their tombstones as empty as
The earth were they should lie.
These are the people...

A Message to Those Who Don’t Want to Hear It Because They Have a Thousand Times Before

FREE WRITING


You may be unsure to why you are still here, still on this earth – I know I am sometimes. But your day is not done; never believe that it has to come to its end so soon. There are so many songs that you have not yet sung, and how beautiful those notes will sound once you find your voice to sing them.
Perhaps right now you can’t find your voice, I suppose it’s hard to sing if you’re...
