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...

Moon

FREE WRITING

Nothing could possibly be more important than
the moon in that moment,
well maybe the stars,
if I could see them.
But in that moment where
time has frozen still and
everything seems to be screaming,
even the earth itself,
what could be more important
than the moon?

Stuck

FREE WRITING

I'm stuck on top of a wall
And I don't know how I got here
I just know that I'm very alone
Because none of my friends are near.
I don't remember the climb,
I'm not sure how I got all the way,
Have I been wandering aimlessly
From yesterday to today?
I'm stuck on top of a wall
And I could topple to either side,
The one where my friends all live
And the one where others have died, ...

Empty help

FREE WRITING

"It's all in your head."
And funnily enough
I spend a lot of time in my head,
Believe me, it's pretty rough.
Constantly being bombarded
With all the negativity
Never getting a rest from
It's violent resistivity.

"You should be more grateful."
And every single day
I think about my luck,
But worry how long it will stay.
I love everybody in my life,
With more words than I speak,
And more breath than I breathe,
But they are strong...

Sorry

FREE WRITING

I'm sorry I am the way I am
And not the way I wished to be.
I'm sorry I did what I did
That's not something you should see.
I'm sorry I intrude the way I do
I should always refuse the cup of tea.
I'm sorry I didn't do what I should've
It would make everything for you so easy.
