A land of the unthinkable

Believe it and it will become.
Breath and life shall thrive.

Create a space where anything can happen, from the unthinkable to an unrelenting beauty of fantasy.

Kicking of the unborn

She can’t walk Her swollen feet sweating beneath socks, She can’t walk Turning she looks at the wall lined with clocks. Three months left. She can’t eat Turning down each fork stabbed with bounties, She can’t eat No matter what hunters bring from each, and every county. One month left. She can’t sleep Her belly…

Reeking of despair

Hands stroking the parchment  Tiny bumps hitting your palm, Easing fingertips across a blank canvas  Not wishing to harm. A stab of colour From a pulsating heart, Insides pouring out  The beginning of a work of art. The colours blend in dissaray A battle for dominance in each swipe, Paint brush birthing the rainbow Each…

Being a woman is terrifying

It’s hard being a woman My first breath already seized, Doctors naming me adorable Chained as they teased. It’s hard wearing skirts When you want to jump, kick and run, A scolding teacher telling you to sit still Whilst boys are allowed to have fun. It’s hard when girls grow up Having to plaster orange…

An endlessly spinning coin

Have some wine or a vodka and lemonade not… that,” she finished with…

Ariel made a noise, her white wings fluttering in annoyance. “But look at his little tail! Look at the tail!”…

I have wasted my prime

A glittering array of sparkles Calling to me from behind glass, Rows of different desires Organised by class. An emotionless machine Ready to engulf my hard earned coin, Swallowing gold, silver and bronze Whispering tails of a class I now beg to join. Each breath is heavy, Each moment weighed with time, I must work…

A magical catastrophe​ at the pub

“Did you not read the sign?” The burly man at the bar asked, his hairy fist coming to punch at the worn wood. She shivered, jumping back from his anger. “What?” Cassy asked, looking around as the rest of the bar’s inhabitants stared at her. “No cloaks!” He yelled, pointing to a very plain piece…
