Anti-Love Poem

Saturday, November 30th, 2019

I’m incredibly insipid You’re mostly mundane An Apathetic Archetype To my depressingly inane In a mediocre marriage A relationship rut You are no Adonis And at best I am a slut I’m grumpily engrating You’re insomniac inspired And somehow of each other We never do grow tired!

I Want

Wednesday, November 6th, 2019

I want to be free but without loosing those who tethered I want to be without pain but not without sensation I want to achieve what I can see without killing what I can’t I want to lose the fear of the dark without loosing empathy I want to solidify my dreams without crystalising the […]

Just a Girl

Sunday, October 6th, 2019

The Man

Monday, March 12th, 2018

The Ghost and the Snail Collection

Friday, July 7th, 2017

The Ghost and the Snail is a collection of poems about me and my husband – mostly love poems but more about how we as misfits fit each other. I have decided to make it a little zine it may well end up being a larger collection later on but for now it is a […]

The Date

Friday, February 19th, 2010

This was inspired by another one of Ella Gales fantastic pictures and is only here becuase I did it as part of WoPoWriMo – I think its far more of a song than a poem. I even have a tune in my head for it! A little walk A little talk A little flower A […]
