“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

Month: November, 2013

Honestly, I’m a liar

Clean white sheets

Apple scented shampoo

A laugh that’s full and loud

That’s me, when i’m with you

A sad, nostalgic smile

Hair scraped back in to a bun

Finger nails bitten down

Missed calls from my mum

My thoughts are interrupted

by your lazy, knowing smile.

You pry a book from my hands

you steal kisses for a while

A gentle distraction

your hands, your  jaw, your lips

I think i could be happy,

if this is truly how it is

My nightmares remind me

of the bruises i have bear

I wake and i find you

in sleep, unaware

Do you know

how heavy my heart is?

Your touch lingers

everywhere else

I can’t find strength to tell you

My laughter has an echo

There’s someone just like me

Hidden in my shadow

Through my fault

I can’t reach her

Maybe you can fill

The emptiness she left


Safety in Numbers

My heart races

When you smile

When you laugh

When you say my name

You make me cry

You make me wild

You make me nervous

You drive me insane

Your lips make me tremble

Your sighs make me wet

Every inch of me is sensitive

Beneath your fingertips

Night time seems longer

Wrapped up, skin on skin

My dreams are sweeter

When you’re featured in

I find your eyes when i wake

A gorgeous morning grace

I fall back to sleep


Feeling Blessed

I am thrilled to announce that i have  received the “Versatile Blogger” Award from a new blogger-friend  Morgan. I am  flattered that she chose to include me in her nominations for two reasons; I am very new to and my posts are often infrequent (i will try my very best to change this!). I am mostly flattered, however, because Morgan’s own blog is so beautiful and full of life that i really couldn’t compare. Please take a moment to read a few pieces of her work, you can thank me later!


Rules to the Award—

  • Display the Award Certificate on your blog.
  • Announce your win with a post. Make sure you post a link back to me as a ‘thank you’ for the nomination.
  • Present 15 awards to 15 deserving bloggers.
  • Leave them a comment to let them know after you have linked them to a post.
  • Post 7 interesting things about yourself.








That’s it for now, I’m not online often so I’ve not had much time to scope out all of the incredible talent out there… so feel free to share a link with me to one of your favourite bloggers.


7 Things About Me:

1. When I’m writing, I’m usually on a train. I find long train journeys really tranquil.

2. I work in an amazing, dusty  bookstore and spend my days reading, laughing and smoothing the pages of old books.

3. Norah Jones is my favourite singer i just love her voice.

4. I speak Italian and french  and can’t decide which language i prefer!

5. I long to travel the world… I’m planning to do so around 2016 (by when i should have saved enough money and my dad’s second little monster will be old enough that i won’t feel guilty about leaving)

6. I bake when I’m anxious- my raspberry shortbread is the bee’s knees.

7. I am the corniest person ever and I’m a sucker for a cheesy line.


Thank you for reading my blog- I love reading your comments, praise and advice.

Bedtime Stories

Did your daddy ever tell you to

“Watch out for the wolves”?

They’re watching you,

everywhere you walk.


Don’t you know the sky has

eyes all over the place?

You’re not in the spotlight,

you’re in question.


Watch out, watch out!

The demons are on their way

Like moths to a flame
