Incoherent Whispers | Musings

I have this rather annoying thing where I will have a night full of extraordinary dreams, I will wake in a flurry, but the forget the details of these wonderful adventures only hours later. So I got into the habit of jotting then down when I can. Most of the time it helps, sometimes it […]

Encompass | Poem

This is about something very real. It happened a few days ago. But I want it to happen everyday for the rest of my life.   I wake warm, My body wrapped around another. My light. My love. My only. He stirs gently in his sleep. Troubled by some unknown dream. I wish I could […]

Maelstrom | Part 2 | Neighbor

The Doctor woke with a dreadful fright, as the crash of a breaking bottle landing on his balcony from the apartment above him, jarred him from his rest. “You’re quite the specimen, aren’t you?” A feminine voice said from above. Julian looked up to see a woman who looked to be around his age, drinking […]

Birdsong | Musings

As I sit here now, I can hear the birdsong from my window. It’s pretty, light, and happy. And I wish I heard it more. Now that I’m hearing it as we go into spring, I realize how I’ve missed it over the winter. And how I will miss it when I move out of […]

Dismantle | A Poem

Most of my poems come to me in a flurry of a moment. A rush of particular emotion. This is for sure, one of those.   Throw me up against the wall,   Mark my skin,   Like countless times before.   A strike.   A cut.   A bite.   Take a claw to […]

He had mixed emotions about it all, but had deemed it necessary when his previous landlady regretted to inform him that the building was being demolished. Due to structural unsoundness, or something to that effect. […]

To All The Projects I’ve Hated Before, Pt.1

If there’s one lesson that I learnt from being a fresher; don’t rush time. Or decisions. And secondly; wing it. With the sweetest of intentions to pursue my love of art throughout my time at uni, my dreams came crashing down around me as the year continued. Why, you may be wondering. I was certainly […]

Irrevocable | A Poem

A short poem that came to me in a odd kind of rush. Based off my real life. I don’t know why I do this.   Sometimes I wake to find I have been crying in my sleep. I never remember why. But there are stains on my cheeks, And a salty crust stuck to […]

Olive Trees of My Childhood | Musings

My childhood has been defined by something that most people don’t really associate with children. As long as I have been in school, there have always been olive trees. Whether they be hidden away in the ‘out of bounds’ area, by the edge of the rugby field, or along the side of the road by […]

Fever | A Poem

A poem based off a rather strange dream I had. This one took some time to get it to sound right. I just hope it makes sense.   I dream of eyes drawn in pastel, Soft and green. With a knowing gleam that asks but one question: Where are you? Of handmade windmills, Their corrugated […]
