    Among the mountains, over the hills There sat a tiny town Where employment was low, there was never any news And all the adults wore a matching frown. “The people want drama, but nothing ever happens here!” The journos said one dry day; “There’s nothing here to be proud of – Not...

    ‘Don’t worry about hurting me, I’m easy-going You’re forgiven for this time and the next’ – I know you hide behind those smiley faces You type at the end of every text. You try to keep me happy, You’d rather take the stress yourself And you always shut down before the ‘how are ...

    There’s a friend who sits beside me, But never speaks a word. I know her oh-so-very-well Like the yearning song of a caged bird. There’s a girl who sits beside me, But she never moves at all. Yet she follows me everywhere In the warmth of spring and the gusts of fall. There’s a mem...

    Peace. What about peace is it that we so covet? Officially, peace is defined as ‘a state or period in which there is no war or a war has ended’ – but does the absence of war truly bring the presence of peace? Or is there more to the picture of tranquility? It is a common belief that resign...

    One day you asked me for an honest opinion In which I stated all I hate about you - well, here goes; I hate everything about you, from your pompous smile Right down to your grubby knees and wandering toes. I hate the way you think the world is your ice cream cone And prance around with that u...

    Keeping it calm Doing no one no harm I wasn’t the one who stood out And yet you saw me You felt infinity Your eyes held your silent plea Look at us now, look at us now The audience still roars on our second bow And all because I couldn’t put up a fight When you offered me your light ...

    I’m on the battlefield, I’m the only fighter down, wearing a bullet crown Keep telling myself it’ll turn out alright, but dawn’s hope fades in the blackness of night. Give me a second chance, give me a second chance, now that I know what the world wants from me - Give me another go, gi...

    There’s a man at the train station every morning. He wears a thick black coat and thick black glasses. I watch him out of the window; mum lets me stand on the kitchen stool so that I can see through the glass. I can see his lonely eyes clearly, and he looks tired. I ask mum why he’s tired, and s...

    Nathaniel had never seen so many of them before. They came in their dozens, flooding in, all wanting the best of everything – the most expensive suits, the priciest bowlers…standing behind the counter, the young man wondered what in the world these ragged seamen could hope to find in a store suc...

    Let’s stow away together, let's sail the crystal seas, Let’s burn our bridges behind us, so love can bring us to our knees. Disgrace for you is nothing, and the pain I’d take for you, Would be enough to shake Stonehenge, and paint the sky a ruddy hue. So let’s stow away together, ...

    The broken beams were strung with cobwebs, Like the arteries of my heart. The lock was rusty, the carpet threadbare, The crown of my glory is locked away, walls rebuilt that you tore apart. From dust to dust, ashes to ashes, So loneliness to loneliness, solitude to solitude, Pointless is t...

    “Come on, Alicia! The water’s wonderfully warm!” Heather giggled, dancing across the slippery stepping-stones which protruded from the surface of the stream. Sighing fondly, Alicia Robinson watched her younger sister from the highest bough of a nearby tree. “I’m fine right here, Heather,...

    As far as I can see, an ocean of gold and green stretches before me, living side by side in perfect harmony. As I walk down the sunset aisle, I see her, in all her pride and glorious freedom. She smiles and welcomes me forward, taking my hand, supporting me. My nerves dissolve, and I look deep into ...

    There was once a small abode called Cotter’s Inn, Found up north and to the west. It offered tea and ale and traveller’s respite, but oh how they lamented, Its barmen were scruffy, the women underdressed! No men of tailored coats ever quite understood, How those who stumbled through its oa...

    As Miranda soldiered on through the desolate streets, fighting the howling wind, she could not help her mind wandering to the place she had once called home: the little township of Primidia. The place was hardly urban, with only a few paved roads and red brick houses packed together in small, tight ...

    Take me away to where the rivers run free; Show me a place where a bird sings in every tree. Lead me far, away from my dreadful strife; Nothing’s going right – but then again, that’s life. In a faraway place the grass is green. A land with crystal waters fills my every Dream. Take me,...

    Green are the meadows where the bird makes his song, Abundant are the daisies where the days run long. Children chase sheepdogs, the farmer watches with a smile, All trace of city life is not shown for a mile. ...

    I didn’t know what to do, all by myself, I felt like an old book just left on the shelf. And all the dreams I'd let myself dream, I paid for every day with a heart torn at the seam. I'd stopped hoping long ago, And now I know, I was right to let it all go. You came and lifted me...

    Sometimes I lie awake at night and wish I could reach you – get inside your head. You’re a thousand algorithms complicated and yet an open book, so far only I have read. When I say you’re the best there’s only fact there, so you have right to be proud, But when I say that I love you I nev...

    When she logged on that night there was so much hope within, That a message would wait that wouldn’t get under her skin. Something nice, a compliment or two, Not a note that would make her teary and blue. Yet she opened her messages and had no such luck, Those bullies were on again and sh...

    John trudged up the stairs of 221b Baker Street. He stood in the gap at the door (it was slightly ajar) and looked in stealthily, then sighed inwardly to himself. Sherlock lay on the sofa, a dreamy look in his eyes, as still as a statue. That meant he was bored. That meant John was in for yet more s...

    Sherlock walked into the room. “What are you doing, John?” he cried. John was sitting on the floor with a panting German Shepherd in front of him, waving a treat in it’s face and shouting, “Roll over! Roll over!” The dog didn’t look the least bit interested. Instead, it turned away an...
