The little voice whispers "you will be fine",And then I realise the little voice is mine, I stagger and stumble and think in my head, I should listen to what my little soul said. The me of the past, encourages me now, I may have grown up, but she's with me somehow,Though I get scared,... Continue Reading →
Flowers have short lives, They spend their life trying to grow, They blossom into something beautiful, From the tiny seeds that we once did sow. But sunflowers are extra special, This giant yellow full bloom, Can brighten up each day, And even the dullest room. Though their lives are often short, They chose to be... Continue Reading →

If you have read though a few of my poems, or you know me really will you know I have an absolute fascination with stars. This is something I have always had since a child and thinking about it probably stems from the fact my Grandparents call me their 'Little Star'. This is a name... Continue Reading →
So, Tonight, I will sit, And count the stars, One by one for you, All of them up high, I won't forget, When Counting, To Count, You.
A poem about a couple arguing one storms out the other is left longing for their return. When they don't they go outside to call their name....
A poem about looking for someone you miss in the daily tasks of life, but always knowing they are never far away.
A poem about when you see someone you love, you heart is racing, you mind runs away but when they hold you life becomes so still and there is just the two of you in that moment.
This poem is all about discovering a love that makes you feel alive, not just settling for something lukewarm. Love is an emotion that is meant to make you feel something. Find one that makes you feel alive.
Two people sit round a table,Just two people alone, It's simple, and plain, yet it's theirs, They have no fears, worries or cares, How happy are they to be, Just the two people you see. The following year comes another, Two people, and now a third,The thrid one is crying,They can't get a line in, Still how happy they are to... Continue Reading →
When you said I love you for the very first time, my whole room lit up with stars dancing across the ceiling, down the walls and filling up the sky. The room became so bright, I could barely even see, that's what your love did to me. When you said I love you for the... Continue Reading →
She sees everyone, In all different shades of grey, But when she saw you, She could not believe her eyes, You was all different colours. Your smile shined deep red, Your hair was a mousy brown, Your cheeks blushed with pink, And your eyes a green sea blue. The colours bounced off of you. And... Continue Reading →
It is easy, when you love books, to start the year having set yourself targets to read more. Perhaps you have even put numerical claims out there about just how many books you are going to read. Then you blink and suddenly its October and you haven't read nearly as many books as you were... Continue Reading →
Fog, Covered, Arms reaching, Man made of mist, Trying to grab me, He's got into my head, My thoughts all begin to blur, The man of the mist coming for me, My judgment is clouded, I can't see, My depression is catching up with me. I battle against the man made of mist, I beg... Continue Reading →
She added a charm to her bracelet,For every life that she took, Though, she didn't have a favourite, As it was her personal scrapbook. The bracelet told her story, Of the boys who fell in love, The charms were the all glory,She still often thinks of.The boys were represented,In the charms, it was clear to see,The bracelet she invented,Could never...

Today we went on an adventure to Blackpool. I was feeling homesick and my family came up to visit. My brother had never seen the lights at Blackpool so we took him. It was so pretty with the lights all dancing and lighting up the streets. Though, I did get a bit of light envy... Continue Reading →

So the worst part about being away from home is feeling homesick. Unfortunately for me I happen to feel homesick an awful lot. I don't know how to cope with that feeling, I don't know what I can do to make it better. Nothing I seem to do helps me face it. I want to... Continue Reading →

The silence drowns out, Everything I want to feel, I feel so alone. I'm lucky because I have lots of people who care and look after me. People who check on on me. Yesterday was mental health awareness day and lots of people will be feeling alone and like there's no way out of this.... Continue Reading →
Friendships are funny things. We choose these people that we like and we keep them around to talk too and we meet up with them sometimes. Some people we get on with instantly and other people we just don’t see eye to eye with. What many people do not understand is that it is perfectly... Continue Reading →

Poetry doesn't have to rhyme it just has to make you feel something. This was written when my best friend had her heart broken and we sat in her room eating ice cream crying with each other. Today she is whole and smiling again. I couldn't be happier.
I have done my fair share of reading in my years, there have been some books that I just can't stop talking about. Don't get me wrong I have disliked my fair share of books too but that is a discussion for another time. For now let's talk about all the books I love, well... Continue Reading →
Ever since I was a little girl I have been obsessed with all things magical. This deep rooted love has developed in the start from my family, and our constant belief in magic. I grew up with stories of magic and mermaids and fairies and I had a sizeable imagination that went along side it.... Continue Reading →
She cast her eyes across the waves and watched, As the sun danced over the water. She thought about how she was like the ocean,Carefree and calm. But then she realised what else she could be. A storm of destruction, danger and fear.The waves crashing and bashing, destroying everything near. The sea may glisten but that’s... Continue Reading →
Recently, incase you haven't already heard, I've finished university. If I was being honest, I don't really know what I'm doing with my life. I'm really not used to having free time to myself, and enjoying it. So one of the things I found myself occupying myself with was visiting the Double Fantasy- John Lennon... Continue Reading →
I used to see the world in many colours, I used to run out in the sun, But then you went and left me, Now I can't even run. The colours have all faded, And shattered is my kaleidiscope, And down with it fell, and all my dreams and hopes. Gone are all the colours,... Continue Reading →
Recently I asked a friend of mine a question which has been playing on my mind ever since. It was 4am and the conversation topics had ever gradually become deeper and more revealing. There is so much you can learn about a human in the early hours of the morning, there is something about the daylight... Continue Reading →
