it's the three words that can hold everything together.
its like the egg in a cake, or the glue on a model,
its the warmth in a mothers hug, or the touch of a hand.
its the comfort of a jacket on a cold winters day, or the pride you feel for knowing the simple,
the relief you get when you find the light on a cold dark track.
it holds everything together, like a brightly coloured hessian sack.
if you think about it clearly, it drives people to believe and smile, it… Continue

In my dreams,
where i am nestled away, warm and safe
i feel you behind me, your body curving into mine, your breath warm on my neck and i feel you are there
in my dreams he is there, and he is there with me, and i can feel his smile, i can feel his hands holding onto my waist.
In my dreams you are there holding me, in my dreams he is there trailing behind me
in my dreams you are smiling, in my dreams he is laughing.
in my dreams you kiss my lips, as delicate as a… Continue

under a street light at dusk.
under a dropping gum tree.
under the stars,
your fingers trail over my cheeks, holding my chin up to you
your eyes stare, i read your every movement.
your whisper gently as you carefully walk away
we were almost there, so close, almost there yet it was not to be
under the steet light, under the tree
every moment, just you and me.
it was bliss , it was heaven and hell, it was strong it was long but yet it was… Continue

We found a spot you and me, the both of us walking, our sides barely touching, our hands trying to entwine,
The grass was cold from last nights rain, it chilled my bare feet as i padded along, brushing the chandelier water drops from the flowers petals, there was a misty fog which the sun rays danced through delicately, as though playing a game of hide and seek.
I looked at you and smiled, it had been so long, almost a year, but you hadnt changed, not from when i last remembered you.… Continue

i remember, when i would walk down to the grassy corner of my backyard and i would sit down waiting.
you would come behind me, wrapping your arms around my waist and pulling me into a hug, we would lie on the grass with the sun beaming down on us, time and shadows passing us.
i would count the freckles on your arms slightly tickling you and you would laugh, slightly russling my hair, we would stay there forever, occasionaly bringing out small snacks and drinks, to picnic under the… Continue

Mondays the hardest, the empty space where he used to be lingers.
tuesday, i can still hear his echoing laughter and it follows me through school.
wednesday, middle of the week, memories of the weekends begin to fade, and i clear him from my mind,
thursdays the longest, the many hours before i see and remember him again.
friday, the day where i wait on the driveway for him , till the skys a mixed palette of smudged pastels.
saturday, lying in the sun laughing, food… Continue

feels like a child in a kitchen, finding the cookie jar.
always reaching for higher expectations, things which are just out of my reach.
i am surrounded by tall appliances in my life which crowd and cover me and i feel suffocated.
i can never get to the standards of those around me, always seeking never reaching,
my writings dwindle away and become whining wiffle waffles of stories, compared to others.
i always searching for tha way, the bridge of crossing over to the… Continue

The day it happened, I knew I had lost her.
She wasn’t herself anymore, she was somewhere else, and somewhere that didn’t show through by the brightness in her eyes
She wandered the house, dazed and vague.
Her voice had lost its shine, her skin was dull.
She scared me, I couldn’t hug her,
She wasn’t mine anymore, Untouchable.
There was an indivisible wall, she didn’t cry. She didn’t talk, she just was.
We went back to the house, to pick up the forgotten… Continue

do you remember when we used to not care?
how we would lie on the soft ground, till the night moon shined like midday,
then things started to change..
you would scream " im sorry"
i would scream back " so what" it never meant anything, you would always say it, and i thought nothing of it till now.
its my turn now to tell you sorry, im not sure you can hear me, you back is facing me and i feel afraid, i want to reach out and comfort you, but im held back
im sorry,… Continue

higher and higher,
i can almost touch the sky, back and forth, i reach for the stars.
swinging through my day, everything seems quiet out here, even the loudest noises are softened,
its my safe place, where i imagine myself a young child, grasping onto the ropes, pleading my parents to push me higher and higher.
i stretch my arms out, feeling the wind fly past my face, ruffle my hair,
i can fly,
i can fly,
soar like an eagle, around the highest mountains… Continue

There’s always a price to pay, for everything you do
Whether it be a little more time, or a little less time
A new beginning or an ending.
A forming relationship, a broken tie.
Everything can change in a heart beat, in a click of the finger.
Every moment someone dies, someone’s born, someone laughs, someone cries,
Every choice you make, someone pays for it on the other end, there’s always a link, a ripple from a far away thrown pebble.
In the clap of a hand,… Continue

i feel like a lillypad, when people step on me, i sink down, people hop and jump and skip all over me, and i just get pushed around in the crowd of things, i sink down and am hidden.
i cant say no, its always a simple nod, or a smile and yes.
i never make eye contact for long, just keep my head down, and hand over whatever they want.
when people take my things, i let them, i dont overeact, i just stand there, dazed, i never know how to react.
i wish i could get angry,… Continue

instead of time with me.. theres times on the greens.
instead of spending hours on the phone, theres hours outside.
instead of staying back till the sun has just dropped below the horizon, he leaves while the shadows are vivid,
instead of being seen as the supportive person im "suppose to be", im told to leave him alone.
instead of being honest, im meant to hide my dissapointment and tears and replace them with smiles.
im just suppose to stand back, smile and wave and… Continue

i used to think my life was like a movie, not a blockbuster, but a small repsected movie, in an old cinema that had the large red seats and the must smell of the stale popcorn, you could hear the reel in the background clicking away and my life played along, and sometimes reel would clatter to a stop and had to be changed and the screen would dull for a minute, this perspective made me feel that my life had some purpose it in somewhere, that it was appreciated, and it always ended with a happy… Continue

its the way he knows everything is going to be ok.
its the way he hold my hand and looks into my eyes and says i can do anything,
its the way that we can lay on the trampoline, making the clouds into different things and laugh as the wind blows my hair into my face and not have a care in the world.
its the way he falls asleep in my arms.
its the way how we lie around all day in each others arms, basking in the warmth of the sun and not do anything at all,
its the way he… Continue

the hushed lullaby, thats what he called it.
he said he could hear it under my breath as i hummed it, gentley, delicately, stroking my hands through his hair.
its the last thing he heard, as he fell asleep, wrapped in the safty of my arms.
the world was quiet around us, except for the gentle hush and rustle of the wind.
the moon danced through the clouds, lighting up outside, i looked up and beyond, saw the empty paddocks with the tall weedy grass, the lonely mountains out… Continue

Im only in this palce to escape.
I find distractions during the day, everything has to have a rhythm, it
becomes methodic, routine.
i loose my voice, the words can't draw themselves out, they are hidden, lost.
i walk around in a daze, not really gathering my existence
i wait, for something, anything.
a change maybe? a realisation of my being there?
escape - the only thing that matters now

im alive but barely breathing, are you happy now?
im falling apart, you threw me away, i know you didnt mean to, you always used to say how much you loved me.
im here, im sure of it. can you just see me, im fading quickly, i can feel it. i shout your name at the top of my lungs, but you dont respond, your to busy, always to busy
stop pretending everything is ok, save me, i need you, save me, please.
you used to whisper " i love you " into my ear, you… Continue

theres that place. you know the one, the place where you can go and everything is ok again.
the place where you go, and it floods back all the wondefull memories that were hidden away, in the dark pockets of your mind.
that place, that smells like you last remember it, how nothing ever changed, everything is the same as you last left it.
the place, where the rest of the world fades away and you can melt into the oblivion of non reality, into that special world of yours where… Continue

you can never do anything wrong, but i can never do anything right,
its never your fault, im always to blame.
your always in the light, i suit the dark better,
people remember you for the good things you do, im just known for being defensive.
your wise and thoughtfull, always taking full credit, im just shallow and empty,
your always in front, while i linger behind you,
you have everyone and i have nothing, your walking on… Continue
