Dear Mum
I've written up the poshest letter To make all my troubles better I'll post it through Mum's bedroom door So that it ends up on the floor And then she cannot help but see This special letter just from ME: "Mummy, I'll beg you and I'll plead, I'll even get down on my knees, And, you see, I HAVE said please (Oh, please, oh please, oh please, please PLEASE) Please will you let me have just ONE (Or maybe two- I AM your son) Cookies from the cookie jar? You know I cannot reach that far To where you put them so high up In the special biscuit tub And Mum, you see, it's only fair If you would take them down and SHARE! (My preschool

Lost
We stand together In the middle of the field Avoiding each other’s eyes The air is filled with birdsong and awkwardness Pause. We both speak at once And then stop talking quickly More of that tongue-tied silence Neither quite readly to break it, or break us Breathe. We’re oh-so lost, but I don’t know how to tell you Besides, I think you already know. Don’t you? Listen. And there’s no-one here To ask for directions from And there are no maps to where we want to go Lost...

You scream, I sigh. Hair scratchy as I scrape it back, Preparing for battle. We both know what’s coming next. You left your dirty socks in my  ROOM? In MY room? Why, yes, I did. What of it? My friend, I’ve known you all your life. And slightly before. Three weeks older, but sometimes it feels like years. So just STOP THIS. Stubborn and immature, you won’t give in. We indulge in childish tantrums. Insults. Yelling. We’ve soon forgotten just what This is all about. But we’re having too much fun to stop now, in this game of tears. Our voices drip honey and menace as we try in vain to hurt, Screechi

thinking list
This is a thing that has been very important to me for a year now! It was a list I kept on my cellphone, and every time I thought of something I liked I'd put it on there. Or something I didn't like. I just put things on there, basically, since September of 2010. As a result I have 75 statements that sum me up as a person better than a lot of things could, just based on what I've thought about. It's kind of like your google search history. My favourite thoughts are "things we know about ourselves from what our parents say", "soccer pants", and "picturing bus drivers on their wedding day". - dinner - day moons - having two identical dogs w

The Rumour of Icarus
Icarus— there is a rumour that your father killed you, that he bent your wings until they broke and then told you, "Fly." If this rumour is true, then it lives in the throats of those fragile boys who wear your death like Cain's mark, whose tender hands split like swollen tomatoes when they pluck strangled seabirds, whose arms slump beneath the weight of their father's genius. And this rumour lives on the under-skin of their eyelids so that when they die or simply sleep they dream of their fathers or maybe just of Daedalus, standing with his hands full of feathers and wax, their blood-flecked down under his fingernails

Deviants, I have a confession. I've been sooo bad with my poor neglected account for the past forever, idk why- have been using a lot more traditional methods and a lot less Intahnetz :] Anyhow, to try to get myself back into the system, I'm setting up a tumblr account... possibly the easiest thing ever, right? (Oh man, now I'm going to break it...) Anyways, to help get me started and to post your beauuutiful poetry, photos and artworks elsewhere on the big wide web, if you fancy sending me a link to a deviation you wouldn't mind me posting on said tumblr, that'd be so fantastic! I honestly don't know how I stayed away from dA for so long.
