Thinking ahead was the best mistake of my life;
Look here, you got your education,
Then your gravestone.
If you can guess what year the wine's from
I'll pour you a glass of pretention.
Are you listening son?
Let me begin,
With the year that was the end.
God is dead, rock is dead, grunge is dead
As far as I know art is too.
Look here, does my smile look genuine to you?
All I'm saying is
Don't play your music so loud-
It's not the done thing around here.
I'd say iron your shirt but
Power's on the blink again.
Don't tell me it's cool to know nothing
Because I'm as square as they come.

The summers are a rare spectacle,
Yet I covet them like
Diamonds set in gold sunsets,
Wedding bands in the sky
To give me a better night's rest.
And you, you were Hades in this,
Yet the world was already winter,
So is this an Ice Age?
I am left to inhabit the castle of glass
With echoes of laughter in each room,
The artwork composed of shadows
Of what once was.
I can't help but feel Homer wrote this all wrong,
Where are my triumphs
Or glorious children?
Dead flowers in my footsteps
Where nothing else will follow,
I will spend my hours with scripture
In a final search for absolution.

And so we walked,
Through the clover and weeds,
This sweet countryside of ours;
For it was our kingdom.
Kings and Queens of
the old oak mark where races always ended
with little bird chests heaving and gasping.
But the house you once dreamed would be your own
became the city loft,
And your favourite drink is fresh coffee now,
Not apple juice as it once was.
The city's full of liars,
Instead of children and big happy dogs.
There is a park not far from you,
Overrun with weeds in a more sinister way,
The gnarly trees are black and dead
poisoned by a brackish marsh
or the bad thoughts that they inhale.
I could walk no further
into the city's embrace,
We said goodbye on a bridge over dark waters,
Where secrets and sorrows are carried to far-away places
in the form of beer bottles,
To be washed ashore as milky pieces of sea glass,
They were the only diamonds in the city

It was when you called me 'Seamstress'
that I was confused,
Until you clarified.
You said days were best when we were Siamese,
Two wings of a sick butterfly
Frail and beautiful.
You said worries
vanished like lipstick stains,
Left on white coffee cups,
That there was no sun more golden
than the one that bleaches my hair just so in summer,
And that no linen blossoms
were as soft as my skin.
Who am I to blush
or second guess?
Yes I am The Seamstress
And we are but a haberdashery of hearts,
You could say on a quilt covering
vast expanses of time and space,
Until farthest ends are no more;
Or you could just wonder
if forever is really enough time.

Long time, no submit etc. I'm kinda cutting down on DA as my main platform, as my Tumblr gained me more attention at first and my Facebook page is gradually getting better. Sucks I know, but I still come and lurk on here so I'm not totally quitting on DA (as you can see from this journal I guess aha).
I've recently joined/founded a creative writing club at my school (better late than never, in my final year and all that!) so I feel that I can get better feedback there than anywhere else on my latest work. I'm also fortunate enough to have been awarded the Beloe Award for Poetry which they award every few years to someone at my school, pretty damn happy with that I shan't lie! So yeah I am still writing...just not on here
And believe it or not had 3 university offers back already out of my 5! Super happy that York got back to me because I fell in love with that campus. I'm hoping Sheffield will as well and I'll have my 2 final choices in place, if not then I'd be cool with studying at any of my other choices really but York is 100% certain to be on my shortlist.
All the people (well most) that I used to talk to on here have quit DA Sad times. If anyone doesn't want to lose contact with me, inbox me or something and I can link you to my Facebook because I've met some amazing people on here who have given me great support and feedback.
Hugs to you all
