A cocoon of safety.

I need a pillow in which to rest my tired mind.
A safe haven to close my heavy eyes
soft enough to catch my gentle thoughts.
I need a cover in which I can be caught.
Large enough to envelope my soul.
Soft enough to caress my waning spirit.
I need a place where I can rest,
to pause and reflect.
A place where I can sleep
and cry tears never wept.
I need a pillow to place my tired head.

Welcome to my blog! Here you will find different forms of creative writing, lots of swearing, erotic poetry, random thoughts, beautiful imagery, but most of all you will find a version of truth. My truth, this is the way that I see the world. However, all of my work is a form of creative writing, a combination of truth and fiction. I write to express my creativity, not my needs!
