Strange Heart!

O strange and foolish heart! Why do you continue to love when the other is long gone? You've chained your quartet of chambers up into tiny cells. Bereft, your grief dwells.   Such a strange and stubborn heart! Without truly knowing the Love that exists outside of him You've made such a final choice. Acute... Continue Reading →

2 Haikus: Brighton beach

Hey beautiful people ❤ I just had a lovely time in English seaside town Brighton. I took my little notepad along and wrote quite a bit, which was very soothing. I could taste  the salty sea on my lips and my hair was dancing wildly (it was very windy!) and I just took out my... Continue Reading →

The Wound

One day she woke up and realized she wasn't hurting as much as before. The wound was still there, but the pain duller, more of an ache that intensified at certain times. Like first thing in the morning. She would open her eyes, and the wound was there, dismantling her peace,  trying it's best to... Continue Reading →


  I knew I'd felt it again between my ribs, above my breasts. That familiar pang of grief I felt whenever I remembered. I continued to search inwards, devouring hope, eye on the clock. Was yet another mistake made? Or would this be the final death knell?   I stared stupidly at the chasm left... Continue Reading →

2 Haikus: Fox

Good evening/morning wherever you are in the world ❤ I spent much of this evening reading and analyzing another of Ted Hughes unique animal poems. The one I've been looking at is called The Thought-Fox and blends the idea of poetic inspiration and the vivid description of the animal incredibly well.  The atmosphere of the poem, which is...

2 Haikus: Winters End

Hey everyone ❤ As we inch closer into Spring I thought some weather-related Haikus would be fitting.     March showers tarry Hampering wandering souls Who cling to Springs dreams.     Sodden and wilted Dahlias and hyacinths Anticipate Spring.   Photo by Tolga Kilinc on Unsplash

2 Haikus: Crow

Hey beautiful people! ❤ I've recently been engrossed in the literary work of English poet Ted Hughes. He wrote a collection of poems called Crow: From The Life and Songs of the Crow, and this inspired the Haikus written below.   Crows caw, piercing shriek Flocks of black darken the sky Congregation roosts   Foraging...

2 Haikus: Snowstorm Emma

I'm doing much better now so I will be posting as usual 🙂 Anyway, as you can tell by the title I'm writing about snowstorms this... Continue Reading →

3am Broken Heart

In the small hours of the morning, I remember those wild summers filled with voracious hope when we kissed over and over again and promised one another we would love forever. Wild summers faded into bitter winters and over time the light that you shared with me began to wane. I attempted to stay sane,... Continue Reading →

The Sun

If you’ve ever had a chance to watch the sunrise you’ll know how special it is. Yesterday I forgot to shut my curtains properly and was greeted with the light from those vivid early morning hues. It was a pleasant change from being roused by my phones alarm clock which usually jars me out from... Continue Reading →
