Leaves (with audio)

The weather is grey as if it can sense my thoughts about you During a solitary walk I whisper your name to the trees –  each syllable holding a tapestry of memories  In my ashen mood I take refuge under the hemisphere of an evergreen I sigh into the leaves hoping they’ll send messages on the wind I miss youContinue reading “Leaves (with audio)”

Sewing Kit

When my whole world was aching and things started to fall apart there’s one place I’d go for solace to let the mending start With an opened box before us me on the floor, Grandma above Her, fixing, stitching and healing with her needles and with love Trays full of bits and bobs in all the colours I adored everything I’d ever need forContinue reading “Sewing Kit”

Tell me something terrible share what you want to do if you were concealed right now describe who’s with you List the dreadful thoughts you have  when evening starts to come when you’re clocked in darkness seeking after lust and fun Whisper your taboo ideas of how things would go What would happen here tonight? I really want to know Murmur what it isContinue reading “Something Terrible”
