I was prepared to be your biggest fan. I had the World in my hand, and I was ready to give it to you. My heart had never felt so full, the world was no longer so dull. My sight in technicolour. I could have been your biggest fan, but it was never enough for … Continue reading For the One who I would have given the World. (Spoken Word)

I always wondered what it would be, to sit up late, maybe until three and ask you 'what does love mean?', but you won't answer, and although it seems fine... we'll never be that word. I used to think that love was real, but then I saw you cry that day I told you I … Continue reading 3am
I don't know how to start this. How do you write something like this? I wish there was a simple way. A way to say, 'I'm sorry for what happened', without sounding as distant as the moon. Maybe it's too soon to talk about this, but then I can't miss this time. I wonder how … Continue reading We can Never Forget what They saw. (Spoken Word)

I am Untitled, don't give me a name because apparently I'm never worth it. I'm the kid at the back of the class who tried to pick grass but ended up with his ass in the mud instead. He hit his head and you all thought it was funny when he came in the next … Continue reading Untitled

I hear the voices of those around me who speak of peace and love. Some people even pray that there is something above … Continue reading #DearWorld (A Response to #DearDaddy)
You told me that time didn't stop for anyone, but that was before you showed me how your body was a clock. It ticked and it tocked. I heard it click and groan when you moved. The cogs slowly moved as you swept your way through this life and tried to keep it together. I … Continue reading Your Time.
She told me that words used to burn her, and she would cling onto the hope of it ending one day. Her hands showed the pain and the way she used to beat herself against the wall, and call herself names. I watched her pick the grass one day and thread it between her hands as … Continue reading She Told Me (Spoken Word)
