I care a little bit less, with each and every passing day. Not wanting and hating feeling that way, worries assail me – have I become heartless?

The blazing fire has turned cold – embers pushed aside in a heap, then slowly buried deep, leaving only traces of cooling molten gold.

I turn my gaze to the moon, it’s cold and bright – not a minute too soon, I realise I just cannot accept trite. I want to feel more than I do, I want to see it through, yet…

Has the time come to acquiesce? My barren heart still wavering – is it best to acquiesce nonetheless?

      3. Oh…well, I write about what’s happening in my life really…relationships, friendships, that kind of thing. I have a bit of a complicated love life I suppose, so there’s lots of inspiration to be had there – although I wouldn’t recommend *that* as a source of inspiration lol. I’d much rather things were easy even if I then had less to write about πŸ˜‰

    1. Trust you to decide to check out the blog when I’ve posted something that concerns you! Tom, have you got like, some kind of 6th sense or something? I may just slap your face when we meet up next week #FairWarning


  1. Such beautiful words to express a dark feeling of unhappiness. I love the line “I realise I just cannot accept trite. I want to feel more than I do” … it is such a deeply relatable sentiment.

    1. Thank you! We do usually identify with feelings of loss, confusion and unhappiness, don’t we? I always say that as a writer, unhappiness is the biggest source of inspiration…nobody *needs* to write when everything is fine and rosy, do they?

    1. Aw, thank you. There’s no need to thank me, I do really like your blog because it’s a mix of creative things, you don’t just stick to one thing. There’s also the fact that you’re obviously a really kind and balanced type of person, that really shines through your posts I think πŸ™‚
