    Long ago

    It built and built, for years and years, The coveted thing, held back by fears Of ruining friendship, of being exposed Of giving in and then everyone knows. But one lonely summer, where beginning had sparked A forbidden act, under stars in the dark Reckless and steamy, selfish and wrong, We gave in to the…

  • This old house

    This old house

  • The Show

    The Show

    New to the school, fish had only heard rumours, A show so surreal, its legend had moved her. Sun’s rays disappeared, and they gathered below, Gazing up from the bottom, awaiting the show. First one, then another. “Raindrops,” she was told. Surface collisions, a great sight to behold! But lurking in dark waters just out…

    Not a Ladybug

    I’m not a lady, and I’m not a bug guy. Away home is where they all tell me to fly… Because here in this garden, I don’t belong – Societal rules, long-established in song. Lady or bug, or go home – what a bad joke; My family is all gone, and my home is in…

    Tired of tears
