5am

There were only two stars in the sky as it warmed to morning. Light purple as night fell away and the laughing children scurried home to escape the rising sun. Another day; it is over. Say goodbye to your new friends, they are tired and drunk and will not remember much. Buts it’s alright, we … Continue reading 5am

Too Many Questions

Why is it that at the moment I seem to be waking up that everyone around me seems to be lining their beds for lifelong hibernation?

Just So

Something happened during that awkward pause, that moment when we both realised that we had nothing to say and were neither happy nor sad about it. Ambivalence at our individual ambivalence.

The Lost Children I

You smile too much you lost children, you must not know that you are lost, too naïve to see that every adventure has a return path, that eventually the land under your feet will run out and all that remains is the endless blue above and below. Can you fly child, can your breath air … Continue reading The Lost Children I

The Lost Children II

“Tell me what you want child, tell me child and it will be yours. I have worked hard child to be able to make you this offer, this offer that so few are given. I sacrificed much so that I could lay at your feet all that I hoped you to have and I give … Continue reading The Lost Children II
