We Shall Never Forget (9-11 Tribute)

Recalling the better aspects of humanity on that day...the heroes...

Let the world always remember, That fateful day in September, And the ones who answered duty's call, Should be remembered by us all. Who left the comfort of their home, To face perils as yet unknown, An embodiment of goodness on a day, When men's hearts had gone astray. Sons and daughters like me and you, Who never questioned what they had to do, Who by example, were a source of hope,...Read On

Trust, A Broken Promise

What Does A Promise Mean To You?

A promise. What is a promise? What does it mean to you? Do you make them? Do you keep them? I think we all do. We all know them. We all make them. We all keep them. But then there is those who make them, and don’t keep them. No matter the reason, they find reasons not to keep them. Sometimes it can be out of their hands, sometimes to just break the promise. I wonder why some...Read On

The Raft

Memories of summer can last forever

"I can't!" My voice, high and strident, carries out across the water. "Sure you can; come on, try." My sister's voice, low and calm, comes to me clearly. "No, I can't." "But you did last year." Last year. Perhaps. But this is now, and I know I cannot do it. I don't answer her. "Come on, just try." Still no answer. "Do you want me to come and get you?" My teeth are chattering together...Read On

This may seem rather blunt, But that's just how I am. If...Read On

You know what it does to me, causing you to reel in delight.  Telling me every chance you get, just to see my redden cheeks. ...Read On

Time with Gran and Da

I remember spending wonderful summers, holidaying with my great grandparents.

When I was a child, I lived with my mum, dad and baby sister. It was quite hard going, as dad had a stressful job in the police force and mum was mostly busy with the baby. So, I used to look forward to going to stay with my great grandparents. When we moved house (the first of many times as it turned out) and I changed schools, I was delighted because although it wasn't all that far from...Read On

The Four Seasons

A suite of Haikus, read by our own Daisy.

SPRING Dripping from the eaves, Snow melts slowly while it turns The hard sod to mud. ***** The dog barks hoarsely, He echoes in vibrations As the moon shines down. ***** Up through the green turf, Crocuses lift heads of pearl Into buoyant air. ********************** SUMMER Sunshine comes with force, As the days grow languorous With burdensome heat. ***** ...Read On

Belief

Sometimes it's hard to be yourself...

I dreamed that all my wounds had healed, which freed me to move on. My confidence was coming back, I'd thought it all but gone. A smile, a laugh, an opening up, a glimmer of some hope, But my epistemic self still said I was a dope. Not sure if I was worthy, was sadly my belief And a brave face was the one I wore, despite the mental grief. Suppressing it, I steeled myself and closed my...Read On

Painfully Broken

Thanks For Showing Me I'm Nothing

You know what? I trusted you. I let my guard down because you told me you didn't want to be like my exes. You told me you wanted to be different. You made me promises from day one. You kept telling me to trust you, because you weren't going to hurt me like the others. You told me I was too good to be hurt like that. That J-P was a foolish man, and didn't know what he was losing, when he...Read On

In This Moment

Just Us

The soft caress of your thumb brushes along my hand, making my heartbeat thump hard. I blush, watching it move along the smoothness of my skin. You watch me, watching you and it makes you smile. Your eyes meet mine, pulling my gaze up to yours, I bite my lower lip becoming a little shy. You lean in, your breath on my skin. I can feel it tickle against my lips, making me release my lower one....Read On

My God, The Devil Heroin

This was set to music by my friend Joe Malgeri, and is referred to in my story Your Eyes...

My God, The Devil Heroin I walk down a broken street in search of my Promised Land, I'm on a mission from God and my God's name is Heroin. In the distance I can hear the gunfire, I'm in a holy war, my sergeant’s named desire. I walk past other junkies nodding out against a wall, We're fighting the same cause, fighting against withdrawal. I reach my destination, I talk with the man, I hand...Read On

Invisible Girl

For those who have hated me.

I’m the girl nobody knows, Can you tell? If I disappeared, could you tell? I feel as though I’m dead sometimes, As if nobody cares about me. I may be just one simple girl, But I could change someone’s life. If only they would see that, But if I died, would you cry? Would you even notice? Would you even care? But I’ll just sit here and watch, Like always, waiting and sighing, Can I even get a...Read On

Sir Harold the Earless Wonder

A rabbit with small ears and big brains saves the day.

Harold the rabbit had exceptionally small ears. They were so small, in fact, you could barely see them. All the other rabbits made fun of Harold. It didn’t matter to them that Harold could hop and nibble like the best of them. Or that he was smart. They simply could not get past his ears, small as they were. The rabbits had nicknames for Harold, such as “Stubby,” or when they were...Read On

Love and Hate

It's sad how hateful this world is...

Eyes open to the sky, Rain pours down like tears from clouds dark as night like my eyes. Hair is drenched, Clothes are torn, but I am so alive even as I die. Tossed out on the curb, The cold is my only friend, freezing my heart slowing my mind. Voices stop shouting, Punches stop coming, memories disappear the bruises will too. This pain will not be here for long, ...Read On

Ramblings Of Forgiveness

Can You Forgive?

Things that are done can’t be undone. Sometimes things that are done are wrong, and can’t be forgiven. Sometimes things are done, but can be forgiven. When do we know which is to be forgiven? Sometimes we do things we know are wrong, because we are selfish, and want what we can’t even though we know it’s wrong. Do we care when we go after that one thing we shouldn't have? No, usually not,...Read On

Is There A Key To Leave?

I've been locked up inside of this house. It's muggy and filled with toxic air. I go insane trapped behind these walls, No one to love, and no way to receive. For I’m thirsty for the knowledge, to figure out how to open these doors that hold me in the attic of my mind. ...Read On

Fragmented, Too

Alone, empty. Apart, void. Separately, fragmented. Individually, nothing. Not thinking, not feeling, not caring, just...existing. Existing, yes, but in the basest sense — not truly being. Together, we are no longer empty, void, fragmented. We are replete. We are meaningful. We are whole. Together, we are everything. Together, we are. ...Read On
