Absorb these spiced words
Share the stories of my people
Wind back to my childhood
Feel the warmth of the earth

The past
This is the string that holds me together
But can lead me to unravel
Fray and
Burn

I don’t know which is worse

Why do people, myself included, romanticise train stations? They are places of movement, of coming and going. The trains are always leaving and loyally returning with haste.
Why then, with such a high rate of loneliness do we write about the girl, fingers drumming along to incoherent imagined music.
The boy with some stubble, face buried in a book.

These places are realistic; there is always a better journey to embark on, a more lively, vibrant destination.

Right now, this is life. There’s no practice round, no time to mentally prepare, this is it.
We are alive and breathing and today is just today. I want to fill my hours with emotion and journals so I can remember the lessons I learnt.
I want to breathe in the smells of the earth and rhythm of love. I think we should love everybody we meet and that includes your own. Be kind to your mind and heart. Learn the texture of rain on your face and liken it to soft hands. Feel the sun on your back as your brain recharges.
I like the effect water has on sand, together, they change and blend as one. I want to be one with nature.

Have you ever wondered
How the clouds are
Perfectly blended against
The sky

The whitest of whites
And bluest of blues
Are painted seamlessly
Together

I think people are just
The same; they blend
Paint, mould themselves
And they continue, moving

Today I sat on a mountainside
Looked to the valley and
Wondered how do the clouds
Keep themselves upright
When some people cannot
Bear the thought of rising

I watched the birds duck
Weave, dive, swoop and
Some lives feel like an
Endless game of dead-ends
And stop signs

I think that some people
Are made of sunshine
They are there to brighten
Even the darkest edges
Of your being

And I know you were built
To survive

Margarita Kisses

I want to cover you
In margarita kisses
Touch the goosebumps
On your skin as I feel
Your muscles relax
And taste your breath
Of anticipation
Let us lie under the sea
Of stars and create
Our own fireworks

She said her name
Rhymed with lonely
But had only felt
The comforting
Embrace of alone

She said she enjoyed
Spending time
With her thoughts
That it is important
To know oneself
Before loving
The world

She said you are
Home and you
Are whole
Within yourself

I want my legs wrapped around your waist
Your hands caressing my thighs
Your face burried in my neck
Nibbling my ear
As I run my hands up your back
My fingers through your hair
Our skin buring
With anticipation
