A Poem for National Poetry Day

When I'm tired and feeling like sleeping my dreams are unappealing so I turn on Netflix. I browse through titles forever and then finally put on the news The worlds woes make me feel okay*. What's new today? Bullets in pews. Guns in a church, lots of people hurt. I look up to the sky** … Continue reading A Poem for National Poetry Day

The Future Isn’t What it Was (Poem)

A woman empties a bucket of piss, sloshes through the cobbles as my driver curses. Cretin! The horses pulling the cart don’t care, they soldier on; we all do, really.

I Wrote Some Poetry

I'm an English Literature/ Creative Writing student at university, but I always struggle with poetry. I'm too matter of fact with my words, which works with my style in prose, but leaves a lot to be desired in my poems. It's a style, nonetheless, and one that I suppose is not the most sophisticated, but … Continue reading I Wrote Some Poetry

Song Lyrics Which Are Basically Poetry

You hear some songs and they please your ears and you think *ah this is nice*. But some songs you really listen to, and the lyrics transcend music and become art. I've put together a little list of some of my favourites. "So can you understand? Why I want a daughter while I'm still young I … Continue reading Song Lyrics Which Are Basically Poetry
