Self Image // A Poem

I stopped in front of my mirror today, and what followed was an urge to throw myself down the stairs. Eventually I pondered the thought away, and although I always hate how I appear, the feeling caught me completely unawares. I stared at my own eyes for the duration, and my focus shifted around my […]

Goodbye // A Poem

“I think it’s best we break up.” I can’t bare to look at you as I say these words; I can feel your heart breaking as it ripples the air between us. I know that you’re crying, which pains me because you never wear your emotions. The silence is deafening. I look up for a […]

Numb // A Poem

I hear the delivery of bad news, yet I feel no sadness. I have seen you deteriorate rapidly, suffer intensely, yet somehow, I am numb. It has been 2 hours, I lie awake with my Mother’s hand in mine. I close my eyes and I see your face. I open them and my mind races. […]

It took me […]

Your silhouette hypnotised me innocently, as those around us became an insignificant blur and time slurred to a halt. Enticed by how calm and collected you seemed in […]

Memories // A Poem

Why do memories haunt you? Like whispers in the wind Like ghosts in the night Like shadows on sunny days Why do memories hurt you? Like thorns on a rose Like blades on skin Like bones that break Why do memories fade? Like the light of day Like burning candles Like you & me

CONCEPT – The Book

You handed me a gift, And the gift was a book, I was touched by the cover. Gazing at the yellow exterior, It lit up my face as I smiled, I traced the title with my eyes. “Happiness is…” it read, with hundreds of responses inside. I noted your name was not. Smitten with the […]
