I’m Alright, Honest

Pen to paper, thats all it took. That’s all it took I kept telling myself. Repeating those words over and over but weirdly, the clicking of the pen, the in and out, click clack. Over and over, it kept distracting me.  It was my own cause for concern but before I knew it I was [...]

We Can Be Heroes, Just For One Day

The dark skies, clouded over entirely blocking out the sun as rain battered down in a thunderous movement , slowing his movements as he stumbled back from another punch. The hero stood firmly forward, tired and exhausted thinking to himself the moment he was in, how he couldn’t give up, couldn’t let the people down. [...]

Swirling Thought

“I wish I knew who to believe”. The words that kept crossing my mind as I lay on the bed, head tilting over the edge and feet on the wall. I’d lost my bounce, my pick up, my energetic functionality. Truth is, I don’t know how to get it back anymore. It was all because [...]

Getting Over Jess (Summer)

It was beautiful that day, the sun shining in the sky, it’s orange glow beating down. We were at a pool party, perfect time to do this in the baking heat. We’d had a good summer that year as it started winding down. We’d been out together traveling around as much as we can across [...]

I’m Not The Protagonist In My Own Dreams

It’s the same every night. Waking on the field. The perfect blue sky above me, the lush green grass beneath my hands as I clutch to feel it’s non existence. Slowly sitting up right. It’s now just a ritual, as I gaze across the world before me. The mountain ranges across the skyline, snow capped [...]

Youthful Integrity

It was a Monday morning. James kept hearing shouting for him, the screaming of voices . The typical atmosphere of a Monday morning. But he chose to ignore it. Before he knew it knocking on the bedroom door. thud, thud, thud. He leaned over to check the time. 7:30am flashed on the alarm. It was [...]

New York, I’m Running

It starts with a casual and brisk walk, the cold air hitting me as I leave the apartment complex, waving a silent goodbye to Jerry on the front desk. Cold wraps around my face, the only part showing as I'm covered in a hat, hoodie and thick sweatpants. The music plays, a symphony of orchestral [...]

Ocean Dreams

I stood on the edge of the cliff. The great view out front of the south sea. It reached as far as the eye could see, a beautiful crystal blue. My lust tormented me from a young age. Pulling me either way, trying to persuade me to go, my conciseness kicking in halting me in [...]

Starting Over

The music was load, somewhat energetic in the background but it felt distant, unattached and unequal to anything I felt. Sitting on the balcony, staring out at the New York vista, flashing lights early of crimson and burnt orange in the night sky. Lighting up the world below, the faces below staring in awe and [...]

There Has To Be More To This.

Beep. Beep. Beep. The alarm goes off at its usual 5.30am moment of none existent joy. My eyes are heavy and my left hand wavers in the air trying to aim for the alarm just to end it all. I barely feel regenerated. The sun is rising to give off its amber glow across the [...]
