2018 wrap

I have drafted so many posts in the last few months and never quite have managed to get round to actually finishing or publishing them. (On the contrary I have spent so much time journalling solo, working on myself, writing for my betterment etc). So I’m incorporating mad speed right now to just get somethingContinue reading “2018 wrap”

City of Love 

I’m sitting in a small bistro, not far from the Airbnb where Diane’s lovely parents and I chatted away in the kind of broken French my seventeen year old self would be horrified at. The waiter, a tall, brown haired charmer walks to my table and looks straight into my eyes with a sort ofContinue reading “City of Love “

The abstract thing…). Maybe it’s because I’ve been in a bitContinue reading “Where I am pt 2”

Heartbreak is the worst feeling in the world. It is a burning concoction of grief, loss, anger, disappointment, bitterness and pain. Pain so sharp and intense that it grips at your core and seeps into your peripheries. Every single thing around you screams pure, passionate, excruciating hurt. You try to push the hurt away but realiseContinue reading “Whole.”
