The End

So, sadly we are here, the last post in the story of us, I hear that you've gone now, vanished into dust. Not so much as a goodbye, breaks my heart in two, But after "stay out of my life" - what more could I expect from you? The story of us, our playlist blasting from every speaker [...]

Love after Love

It will happen - when you least expect it - stop looking for it! We've no doubt heard those words uttered to us before, from well-meaning friends, colleagues and relatives alike. Usually when we have hit rock bottom, in the aftermath of "The End" of something we thought was forever. I like to regard myself [...]

You’ll know when you know

That famous little saying, as with all matters of the heart, "you'll know when you know". I didn't know at first, it was an age thing I think, those boyish good looks, I had you down as 25, that's not my style. But under that tree a week later, yeah, I knew alright. I was [...]

I'm not sure where she's been hiding, these past few years, Her bubble and spark seem diminished, replaced with hot tears, Her life appears somewhat frozen, in the mist of his mirror, She attempts to gain clarity, to view things a little clearer. In her heart, his name inscribed, it spelt out 'forever', Her love for him ran so deep [...]

Fingers entwined, roots of borrowed trees, Love so fierce, brought to her knees, Thought provoking, rumbustious words, A numinous feeling, Magic words left unheard, Fuliginous air with natures TV, that embellish chilled nights, Elysian themed dreams, ravelled with lust and her sight, Tortuous emotions, and the beauty of their tale, Luxurious liners, no pirates, one [...]

Under the Twisted Willow

Under curly branches, had our first date, Kissing, gay lanterns and staying up late, Stars a'twinkling like sparkly little "mince pies", Hand in hand we lay and watched the sun rise, Stay with me, MJ and not forgetting the  Magic, Our choice in music was somewhat tragic, You had me back then, in the palm [...]

Tiny Oliver

My heart stopped, the tears how they rolled, Evidence of those two pink lines, oh so bold, A dream I was living up until then, With daily injections from the nasty little pen, Fertility Clinics and online forums, Long tube journeys and re-mortgaging sums, ICSI and blastocysts and forced conception, Donation of my eggs and careful selection, Genetic [...]
