Hydrate the universe with fallen tears. 

Break me, 

take these tears 

let them hydrate the universe.

Break me, 

take all light,

plunge me into the depths 

of darkness let my shadow 

lead the way. 

Break me.

Break me make clear my 

Path once more

So I may rise, pure

And as fine as the 

Phoenix rises from the ashes. 

Break me.

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!

  1. Twas an oldish one from drafts, when originally written it was about my daughter’s recent hospital appointments …I was feeling very exhausted physically and emotionally (am only now pulling myself back together!) But coming back to it, it’s now about that moment of breaking….Once as we break then we begin to heal….Some days I feel like I. Hovering over breaking point, I want to break so I can heal. Lol sorry that’s a little long winded.
