I don't tend to fave a lot, so if I do then feel happy :D


This Is The Time of Your Life (You Just Can't Tell)

I'm that piece of poetry written by
Artist Unknown
Scrawled on a napkin
left behind in the coffee shops of your youth

You cannot tread these waters;
you cannot slow this current.
Nowhere to go and nothing to prove
my guilt is my only crime.

I'm the rough stitches
on a cardigan that snags every point.
Pin pricks into your flesh
You try to fix me,
But this is a throw-away culture we live in.

If the dreams came what would they be?
Big plans vs. loose ends
those tiny clouds in clear skies
Time will see us realign
Diamond Skies
But this is the carbon before the blaze,
And I will be your worst habit by far.
There were 2 stanzas but my handwriting was terrible that night for some reason, so I salvaged what I could. 22/05/2015

Head East, They Said

"Head East"
for the gold and for the memories,
For the familiar sun
on unfamiliar pavement.
For the red in the grass,
The cracked concrete and broken glass
"Go now"
Whilst you are young and idealistic,
You will never be as beautiful
as pure madness,
But there is no love without fire
or Molotovs and motives.

They said I could be a politician
but I cannot cry.
Now there is no more revolution
and I'm not sure what sort of fool I have become.
You shouldn't take advice at 3am.
Head East, They Said
Written in my 3rd Term at Uni

God is empty just like me

University is amazing and it feels like I've waited forever to finally enjoy education again! :w00t:
I do miss my mum loads however
I've joined loads of societies and am already getting set loads of work, so it's never a boring moment aha. Everyone in my flat is lovely, and even though our oven is broken and the toaster is shite we're managing to feed ourselves. As I type this I am wrapped in 3 layers of clothing and a blanket because my heating has decided to break (yay?) but I'm hoping the Uni Porters can fix it before it gets too much colder.
Hopefully a drastic move up North will inspire more poetry, but if not there is a huge selection of geese to photograph (you think I'm joking, but we have a duck that follows us inside the porch over here in L Block...) because of the huge lake that is the foundation to the campus. At least if the bread ever goes stale we'll have plenty of willing candidates to get rid of it aha :XD:
This will probably be my last journal entry whilst I'm on Premium (goodbye pretty journal skins :( ) so not sure I'll update for a while. So yeah for anyone who cares, I'm alive! Uni is going super well, feel good about life etc. etc. Also I'm eating brioche and it's so tasty. I know it's more of a breakfast thing but roll with it :XD:
Ciao :peace:
