One Day (Poem)

I’ve been thinking of you a lot recently, Thinking of the times we had together, Remembering how we used to laugh, Remembering how we used to cry.   You made me better, You made me whole, I helped you see who you truly are, And you soared higher than I could follow.   All these…

What the hell was that? (excerpt of a potential longer story)

[It’s been a while since I’ve written anything that wasn’t a rant, but the other night an partial idea came to me so I’ve written an excerpt from the idea that I may or may not explore further but its a promising start, and i may still have the abilty to write, maybe. I’d like…

It’s Time For A Change.

Hey folks, I have been away for a while, to be perfectly honest I have been considering giving up this blog completely. I haven’t had the time or motivation to keep it up. I want to address a few things in this post and gage a reaction from you lovely people who follow me see…

What changed?

I know I haven’t been around a lot recently, things have been different for a while now. We don’t talk like we used too, I’ve felt you growing more and more distant, you are sad all the time and nothing I do seems to shake it from your depression. I wish you would talk to…

Something on my mind

When I was eighteen I went away to work for the summer in London. I was working on the rods doing traffic management. I was away for the summer, made decent money and had a good time. I came back on the 31st of July that summer I was meant to come back on the…

Resurfacing Memories [poem]

I’ve not thought of you for a long time, I’ve been living my life having moved on, Then the memory hits me of when you were mine, And I’m sent spiralling, remembering you’re gone. It comes out of nowhere, It hits me like a train, Haunting my memory, Bringing back the pain. My love for…

Years from now….

[I wrote this story back in November and I read it again last night at The Writing Group that I joined last year and I thought that I would tweak it and repost it for valentines day. Enjoy.] One day, far in the future, living life the only way we will know how. Alone. Both…

The Space Between Us.

The images your memory conjures no longer causes pain, The memory of you lingers in my heart, I will always hold you close, I will never truly let you go, But you no longer haunt my soul, You live within me, Giving me strength, Giving me power, Together in memory, There is nothing we can’t…

Goodnight, We love you.

When I was growing up one of my favourite tv shows was Frasier, so it was upsetting to see the news at the beginning of the week that John Mahoney, who played Martin Crane, died on Sunday. Over the last few years there have been a lot of celebrity deaths, but this is the only…

How did it end up like this?

  ‘How did it end up like this? It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss?’ I’ve been thinking about these words for a while now, the resonate deep within my soul. When I got home last night, I climbed into bed thinking about these words. It was a fantastic night. I met…

Years from now…

One day, far in the future, living life the only way we will know how. Alone. Both of us will be making our way through the world waiting to see what life will throw at us next. You, in your world. Me, in mine. I’ll be making my way across the courtyard of the shopping…

I miss our conversations 

I’ve been thinking about someone who hasn’t been in my life for a long time now.  Some people reading this will know who I mean and what they meant to me and what I lost when I lost them. You may even be reading this yourself. You know who you are if you are here….

Thinking By The Fire.

Its that time of the year, The time for remembering, The time for celebrating, The time to remember the love we once had, The time to remember the love that is still there, We were meant to be together, It’s truly what I believe, I knew this the day that we met, I should have…

Where do we go from here?

I thought things were going well, We were getting along, I told you things not many know, I trusted you, giving you a peak behind the mask, A glimpse into the depths of my madness, You touched my soul. Then something happened, We stopped talking as much, You started to pull away, We drifted, Lost…

Fifteen years, has it really been that long?

Today is the 6th of October, today is a day to remember for me. Today is my Grandad’s birthday.     He was a great man who had a considerable influence on my life he died fifteen years ago on the 31st of July 2002 if he were still alive he would have been 98…

Fear

Let’s talk about fear. Tonight, I started a writing course that my wife bought for me on Groupon a few months ago. I have been trying to get back into writing properly, so I thought id boot it up and have a go. The first section is about Genres, and it came up with an…

Goodbye my friend

Today I lost a friend. One of the few people who I could tell anything to, one of my best friends. And I didn’t even get a chance to say goodbye properly. She has gone off to work on a scientific expedition to Antarctica and won’t be back for about a year. I don’t know…

Giving up on a dream.

Last night was a bad night, there was a lot of things that happened and it’s going to have long reaching ramifications in the days, weeks possibly even years to come. I haven’t yet decided if I want to write about it here, I may in the days to come simply to vent but at…

I see you

I know you are there, I know you are watching what I do, Talking to you was never forbidden, I want you to know that I know you are here, You think you are hidden, But I know you are here, I just want you to know, That I’ve been fighting to let you go,…

Letting Go, Facing the Void

It’s been going on for way too long, I’ve been tormenting myself, Thinking about what could have been, Even long after you were gone, I need to stop, I need to move on, I can’t take this anymore, All I’m doing is hurting myself. You don’t know the pain that you caused, It’s not your…

Catch up already. 

I came across this picture tonight.  And I thought that nothing could be closer to the truth of life.  If you have loved and lost someone, lost them for any reason, the rational side of you, your Brain, knows the reason why and accepts this and tries to move on its all very clean cut…

Watching over each other

I know that you are here, watching what I do, It’s always hard missing someone you care for, We go through life looking for connections When we find the connection that’s right for us, We hold on for dear life until it radiates for all to see, I never thought that this could ever happen…

We Saved Each Other

When I met you I was adrift, I was lost in a sea of despair, Floating around with no direction or place to go, You came along and pulled me to shore, Your love made me feel like I never have before, I drifted for years not knowing where to go. I loved you from…

We both knew it wouldn’t last (A One Hundred Word Story)

We both knew it was temporary, the relationship couldn’t last. Those nights you would come to my door begging to come in, I let you, of course, how could I not? I gave you a place to stay, and we would curl up on the couch together feeling each other’s warmth. You kept me company,…

Moving on is hard this may help

For anyone who has loved and lost just remember this. I am working on a story just now that fits with this rather well watch this space

Grey (Poem)

Life is easier when you are young, You never know what way you are going to go, it is so simple that you think you know what is to come, If only we could keep the innocence of youth, But Oh No, We learn that the world is more than Black and White. It is…

Goodbye

They met at the station for the last time. Standing looking, longingly at each other “I love you.” She said. “I love you too, I always will. That’s why I have to step aside.” Sharing one last kiss as the train started to leave He watched tears in his eyes.   [I have just written…

Love and Darkness – Poem (Daily Prompt: Swarm)

You can feel it coming, The need to feel the connection, The feeling swarms your heart, It warms you from head to toes, Everyone who has experienced it knows, The feeling will never go, Even after its lost, It still swarms around you like a ghost. When you try to move on you are haunted…

Love & Loss (A story in Ten-words)

Their time was short, However, they loved a lifetimes worth. [This Ten-word story was inspired by a friend of mine who got some bad new today. This sprang to mind]

Daily Prompt: Someday

Losing someone who is in your heart is one of the hardest things you can go through. Whiter it’s through them passing away or just not being in your life anymore. But as long as you keep them in your heart the world never truly leave you. Someday in the future you will wake up…

Love and Loss (Poem) 

​You came into my life at a turbulent time, It was difficult for me to love , but you made me smile,  I fixed you and you fixed me, we saved each other from a world of strife, You made my life better, the first woman I’ve loved,  But It got too hard, I had…

Writers Block, Being Injured, The Past, The Present, The Future

It’s been a few weeks since I posted anything on here, this is because I am suffering wildly from writer’s block so much so that it’s doing my head in. I have seven stories half finished that I just can’t seem to get right and for some reason, the motivation isn’t there to write them…

Moving on. The future 

I’ve been doing some thinking about my life recently. With all the changes coming up in my life I’ve been thinking about my past.  I seen this picture and it got me thinking, there is a lot that I’ve been through in the last couple of years it’s been rough and a few very special…
