Finding sanctuary

His squinty, smiling eyes

trace the shape of her rouged mouth

As his lips curl up

she leans in closer

Pressing her head against his chest

He runs his fingers through her hair

which washes over her

Like the tide over golden sands

This is her haven

A little piece of paradise

Within her local hell


through a shared silence

and telling facial expressions

It feels like a bubble

Muting the outside chaos

That has been boiling up

This company

Halts the disorder

Putting it on a simmer

As his hands run up

along her side

She feels every word

He’s never said

Stroked on her skin

How he paints on this glow

With nothing more than a smile

She’ll never know


Like a child with a balloon

I’ve reached out more times than you know

As we’ve felt the wind pushing us apart

I’ve held my breath

Anxious and scared

When I’m at the peak

And start to feel everything tumble

Just being close to you

One breath on my neck

Hand on my leg

Clasp of my hand

And I’m grounded

The safest place is by your side

When you lay next to me

Holding my hand as we drift off

I never want to let go


I feel your hot breath

As we lock eyes

Our bodies touch

Feeling hypnotised

Hands clasped

You pull me close

Feeling almost


Skin tingles

Pounding hearts

Chest to chest

The tension starts

Lips brush your neck

Body pulsating

Trying to fight

Titillation radiating

We tremble

Gasp for air


Scream and swear

Intense and intimate

As tender as ever

Falling into your arms

Wherever, whenever

Thighs quiver

Arms shake

Sweat drips

We both ache


Before a last embrace

Heads spinning

All over the place

Shared sweet nothings

As we part

Catching our breathe

Following this euphoric art

The darkest place

You don’t think you were made for this world

You hope to escape

Maybe run away to another place

You feel like a burden

One that just needs to be lifted

So you never have to worry again

You want to be so selfish

But thinking of the hurt you would cause stops you every time

You like to imagine that no one would notice if you were gone

But it would just cause a domino effect

You’re ridden with guilt

Every stolen breath you take

Wishing you could just lay your head

Not being woken from your eternal sleep

Chalk and cheese

How long were we broken for?

Happy memories so hard to recall

We moved to different rhythms

One the river, gushing fast

The other a gust of wind, which occasionally passed

Finding solace in the strangest places

No longer recognising the familiar faces

Almost a sentence we committed ourselves too

relentless misery through and through

Not implying one was solely to blame

hanging on in selfishness and vain

One too cowardly to admit

the other too scared to deal with it

from the outside it seems so easy to do

but how do you leave someone who loves you

forced to say there is nothing left

that we tried our best I guess

to realise you were never well matched

that you be happier alone, that’s a fact

when all the effort is for nothing

all the threats, you were never bluffing

all things we shouldn’t have said

all in anger and feeling misled

it was not who we are, just the situation

only saying things out of mere frustration

but it’s okay, we can let it go

those times are from a stone throw





Don’t let go

Sometimes we see the murky

Picture things that would break

The closest hearts

We imagine empty spaces

Things that would make

Others fall apart

We wish the worst

Things we could never tell a soul

Thinking taboo thoughts

That would only leave damning holes

For many it seems selfish

Whereas it’s merely misunderstood

How someone is feeling

Only pondering what could

It’s hard being your own worst critic

Even harder trying to explain

Always feeling rather awkward

Never any plain sail

So when things are tough

And you feel like you can’t go on

Hold on tight

look out for the shining sun


Darker than a moonless sky
The night engulfs her
The cold breeze hits her face
Sending her cheeks flushed pink
You can see the glaze in her eyes
As the street light catches a glimpse
Shivers travel down her spine
As she weaves in and out of the passersby
Finally alone
So quiet she can hear her own heart beat
Thumping in her throat
Pacing quickly
Looking back
Shadows follow her every move
She slips out of sight
Safe in between dusk and dawn
Footsteps creep
The door locks
She holds her breath

The creak of the door
Fills the empty silence
Hearing thoughts
Smelling fear
Reeking of desperation
Terror is reflected in her eyes

Whispers of light trickle across the room
Slipping through the curtains
Dripping under the door frames
Flickers of hope scurry past
