Away from the World (from 1999)

I close my eyes and shut out the earth, Away from all its panic and worth. I take a moment from its hurry, And know I do not have to worry. I look for my emotions, find where they are, My heart it flies so high, so far. My body relaxes, I open my mind, I’m amazed at what I find.Continue reading “Away from the World (from 1999)”

Untitled Poem (from 1999)

I’ve been writing poetry since I was a kid. Most of them are terrible, however I thought I’d share a few I recently stumbled across from my teens. I’ve refrained from making edits to honour my younger self and how she expressed her thoughts all those years ago. Everything you said and did was only aContinue reading “Untitled Poem (from 1999)”

Smile Through The Cracks (with audio)

Do everything effortlessly Cook with perfection Have a stunning house Have perfect hair Be a #girlboss Be a mother Be everyone’s best friend Be at every social event Be successful Be fashion forward Be a sex goddess Be pure Be.

Let’s kiss in doorways rendezvous in closets give Aphrodite a reason to be jealous Let’s indulge in secret pleasures powerful wordless exchanges enough to make Casanova envious For this overwhelming desire our unquenchable need for another we need to make the most of every opportunity Come away from the crowd meet me down the hall            let’s kiss

O, Awaken My Soul, Here Comes Spring (Villanelle with audio)

O, awaken my soul, here comes Spring There are so many treasures to be found What joys and delights this season will bring Winters cold grip is softening The changes can be felt all around O, awaken my soul, here comes Spring I feel my heart stirring and being to ring With every beautiful new sound What joys and delights thisContinue reading “O, Awaken My Soul, Here Comes Spring (Villanelle with audio)”

Soups and Forks

She eats her soup  and wonders who the people are in front of her They call her mum it makes her uneasy – she doesn’t know who they are She spills her drink down her shirt hating the man she’s been told is her husbandHe wipes her chin as she glares at him – she’s not a child She scratches atContinue reading “Soups and Forks”
