Honey / Poem

on nights such as this / I slow dance with the things you do not like about yourself / and I build them a home / and I call them something sweet / honey / and I tuck them into bed while singing them a lullaby / sing until they fall asleep / in the […]

Surrender / Poem

Chaos inside my heart The usual storm of life Trying to see past the confusion Nothing ever lasts. But I don’t have to try When You are on the move You’re surrounding me, cleaning cobwebs It’s You I will choose. There’s nothing I can do on my own Nothing I have to prove You’re moving […]

Float / Poem

I know the shore like it is home It bleeds into the ocean Becomes the floor of something all consuming. I find comfort in the shoreline But when the water hits me On the stomach I freeze. I do not want my toes to grip The grains as though they are friends I want to […]

Tsunami / Poem

The tsunami came with a warning, The waning of the sea. Pulled back, The ocean bed bared like my scars. How to outrun such a magnetising beast, Not strong enough to look from its eyes. Water giving and taking away, Hold your breath, Save it for a rainy day. Heart fell onto the sandy floor, […]

Before / Poem

When I was young I climbed up a tree and Sat on the highest branch The tree was small My feet brushed the ground and I couldn’t see over the hills I grew older But never left the boughs The leaves became my home The landscape changed But the tree kept growing I couldn’t reach […]
