Hummingbird

You could catch her within the palms of your hands; If you’re fast enough, maybe.. But why would you? She’s a hummingbird. You could trap her within a garden of the most colourful flowers ever; And watch her levitate busily from one to the next, always within sight.. But why would you? She’s a hummingbird!… Read More

Gambling

I am tired. Of wanting things Having things Then not having them. Missing people Only to meet them And realise They’re not the same Anymore. Going places Only to reach there And realise you must Head back Just as soon. I am tired of changing And not being able to change Things that matter And… Read More

Unbroken

It hurts right now But it won’t hurt forever. To carry your broken heart within a broken body that can take no more; It can still be done. It still can, even though you’re hurting beyond measure.

What if this is all there is?

What if this, is all there is? What if this.. is as good as it gets? What if this is as far, you were meant to be; And everything that you ever dreamed about for the future, were memories; Being carried on from a past life. A past where, you had it all. A life… Read More

I want to be remembered

I’m twenty seven and fading away; Fast, into oblivion. With each day, my years lose the promise they held all those years ago. Each day takes away from me the chance of an early fame. Each new day brings meaning to my life; And robs the meaning from all years past. I am at crossroads… Read More

What do you do; When you are lonely, But not alone? Who do you turn; To share those moments, You can’t express? Do you wear, A smile on your face, or frown? A feeling of melancholy, or bliss? Or do you yearn for a hug? Or a smile or a careless kiss? For years and… Read More

Play the odds

Keep walking. Until you reach, A better place. Maybe not today But, soon enough. Keep searching. You will find; Your inner truth. Maybe not easily, But simply enough. Keep dreaming. You will realize; Some, at least. Maybe not all Dreams, come true. Keep trying, Despite your failures. Some will lead, You; to success. Maybe not… Read More
