Your caress reaches to the core of my heart
To you I reveal my innermost feelings
Your touch soothes me when I am plagued by doubt
You are my purpose in life
With you I achieve my dreams
With you I reach for the stars
Together we can overcome any unforseen obstacles
For your caress reaches to the core of my heart

As you suck the colostrum from my breast
I feel life flowing through you
I feel the suckle of your rosebud lips
The tickle of your breath against my skin

I dreamed of you for years
I yearned for you with all my heart
You fulfil my dreams
You are my world

I will give you love
I will clothe you in pink
I will encourage you to follow your dreams
I will stand by you in everything you do

My heart beats in time with yours
I feel your tiny belly swell against me
Time stands still as we share these precious moments
My baby ,my love,my precious gift.

Linda never truly knew her mother as she was always very secretive about a lot of aspects in her life.
Her mother would leave early in the morning and come home late at night. If Linda asked about any of it her mother would simply say she had a long day of work.
One day Linda decided to follow her mother to work.That's when she found out her mother didn't have just one job,she had four!
Linda followed her mother to a hotel. She watched her mother through a window. Her mother changed into a uniform,took a trolley and set off cleaning rooms.
Her mother came out of the hotel having done 4 hours work. She waved bye to another woman and set off down the high street.
Linda followed her,stretching...

Purple dreams of a purple sky
I see a little girl riding by
Not a lucid dream but hallucination
Infectious laughter all around
Yet I'm not really hearing the sound
In essence I'm not really here
My mind is tripping here and there
The little girl picks an apple from a tree
But she's too scared to bring it over to me
A feeling of nostalgia takes me back somewhere
Picking apples from a tree
Leaves falling in my hair
Purple dreams and a purple sky
A purple pill that's taken me high

My dog lies silent beside me
We can't believe our eyes
No sight nor sound of sheep grazing
No Bo-Peep moment here
Sheep rustlers have taken my flock
And ruined my life's work

LOVE, HER

He waits for me everyday
The same time,the same place
He looks at the dazzling sundrops of light
On the surface of the sea
He waits and waits for me to break free
I place an explosion a fathom deep
Causing chaos and confusion ,waking merpeople from their sleep
In the midst of the chaos I make my escape
Whilst the fires rage to the surface I rise
We will vanish away my true love and me
No longer will I be a princess of the sea

He never really thought about this before. If she hadn't asked him he would never have even considered it to be an option. As he was thinking about it,she stood there silently awaiting his answer.
He looked at her with tears in his eyes,"I would be honoured to walk you down the aisle"
She hugged him tightly,"You were my father's best friend and as he's not here to do it I couldn't think of anyone I'd rather have than you to give me away".

When you look into my eyes
I see a bright light shining
You come closer and look deeper
I feel your breath on my cheek
I smell your aftershave
Shades of Sandalwood tickle my nose
You step back from me
"Everything looks fine Mrs Smith,
no sign of any eye disease,
book another eyesight test in 6 months".

The dark days weren't over just yet. She realised that when she found yet another note in her mailbox. She felt anxious as she opened the note. It said " See you in court in 3 days, be prepared to say bye to the kids"
She turned back into the house, she felt fear that he had been so close as to be able to post the note without her seeing him.
She rang her solicitor and told her there had been another note.
"Usual routine Amy,save the note,log the time and date and call the police". " This time they will arrest him as he has broken the harassment order". " I know its easy for me to say but try not to worry,the kids are safe and in three days time the judge will sign them over to your...

Our university days are over
Three years of hard study done
Degrees to our names
And a gap year to enjoy
Strumming guitars
Camp fires
Watching the sun rise and set
City life on the horizon
But were not joining that yet
Too many beaches to explore
Too many experiences to get
Too many adventures to be had
Too many photographs to take
Too many memories to make
Three women and a camper van
And a whole world to explore

Misunderstanding
Brothers
Wind
Patient
With you my brother there is no misunderstanding
You accept me for who I am
With you I can wear flowers in my hair
Run through the fields holding your hand
Feel the wind rushing by
You are patient, kind and accepting
Other people are not so tolerant
They are cruel and unkind
They misunderstand me
They show their prejudice
Calling me names which hurt deep inside
I don't see the world as they do
I see it with different eyes
They don't feel the world as I do
I feel it with my heart
With you my brother,there is no misunderstanding
A brothers love is forever
I hope nothing and no one will ever tear our love apart

Wow Jen ,what a challenge
I'm finding it hard to do it
Imagining I was with a visually impaired person I'm sure I would stumble
As so easily the words look at, you see,would  be uttered
Its easy to put your own interpretation on it,which I think would not be good as the person would want to form their own
Its hard to deliver just the facts
But here goes:
The colours used are
Browns,blues and greens
The woman is at the forefront of the picture
In the background is the sea
There is a winding path going into the distance behind her.
It is a head and shoulders picture of her.
She has dark long hair which is parted in the middle
Its hard to tell if it is a smile on her face
To me she gives the...

Third entry
He walks through my mind on his daily path
Kicking my feelings aside as if he were walking through autumn leaves
Disturbing the solid ground underneath
His footsteps leave an indelible trace
Leaving sorrow and turmoil in their place
I look to the knife to keep me safe
It cutting edge my saving grace
In its shiny blade I see my reflection
In the grip of the handle I feel my tension
Its a relief to cut myself
Draw the blade across my arm
Feel the pain and breathe it in
Releasing me from the thoughts
Releasing me from the tension
The autumn leaves settle as the blood flows
Leaving me trampled and torn
Wishing I'd never been born

Now children I find it disturbing
That you don't know how to cook
So we'll begin with an easy lesson
On how to use a knife
We'll be cutting up vegetables
To make a nourishing stew
Follow my instructions
Keep yourself safe
I'll teach you how to eat healthily
And how to cook for yourselves
I'll make you self reliant
I'll turn you into a cook
You need never go hungry
You need not to turn to fast food
Over the weeks well cook up a storm
And enjoy ourselves too

Knife crime is an epidemic
Something is very wrong
Young people carrying knives intending to  cause harm
Violence breeds violence
Violence causes fear and stress
People need to feel safe
Families need not to grieve
Beyond the Blade project is a disturbing read
Its cutting edge reporting
On a crime we do not need

My favourite person
Love comes in many forms
When you have got it you don't want to let it go
That's why its so hard watching you fade before my eyes
38 years,not all easy, but always there was love
We may have lost our way sometimes
But love always showed us the way back
Each day we find strength in the love we have
Our love together
Our love of friends and family
Love binds us together in our daily battle
Cancer may tear us apart
But love will survive and be eternally ours

Promise
Knowledge
I told you not to stay out late
I told you I wanted you home by 9
You made a promise you would be
But now its nearly 10
Why aren't you answering your phone
I don't know where you are
You are grounded when you come home
And I'm confiscating your phone
You might think you are grown up at 15
But you're not
You have no knowledge of the real world
You don't know the dangers out there
For a young girl your age
I'm fuming,I'm scared,I'm worried
I'm your mother and protector
And I just want you safe at home

I see my robotic face metallic and gleaming
I put it on every day when you come home
You expect me to have your dinner ready
Be made up and sexy
You expect the house to be immaculately clean
With not a thing out of place
I fell for your deception
I thought you were kind and loving
But I was wrong
You are cold,hard and heartless
Like a robot I meet your needs
And when you leave I take off my mask
And plan my escape

As she was cleaning out the closet she found his belongings still in the box.
She never touched them after his birthday. She only opened the box on his birthday.
He and Dad hadn't seen eye to eye and after their last argument Dad had told him it was his house and if he couldn't abide by his rules he could leave.
He just put on his coat and shoes and left.
I was 10 at the time and didn't understand he wouldn't come back.
After a week Dad threw all his things out. I crept out at night and put them in a shoebox. The model aeroplane he had spent ages putting together and painting,his penknife and a photograph of him sitting on a rock on a beach playing his guitar.
Dad smashed his guita...

Suspended in amniotic fluid
Underwater in your body
You have dreams for me
And today your dream is what I will be like when I am a teenager
You dream of me catching fish with Grandad
Baking with Grandma
Clothes shopping with you
Playing games with Dad
Your face is smiling as you know that soon I will be slipping into the world to begin our life together

Seeds of love blow on the breeze
He loves me ,he loves me not
She loves me,she loves me not
He loves me
She loves me
Seeds fall to the ground
And grow in a barren place
For future lovers to blow again
In the eternal cycle of love

They were sitting round the fire together. Julie was telling one scary story after the other yet nobody was scared.
Everyone was laughing and having a great time.
No one was scared until it was time to go to bed.
"Fancy a bunk up" Cat asked Jan
"Sure " said Jan
"You're scared to be on your own Cat" Julie said
"No ,no" Cat stammered.
Julie laughed,"Yes you are,you think the headless man is coming to get you,admit it you're scared".
"Stop it Julie don't be mean" Jan retorted
Julie laughed and made a cut throat motion to Cat
Cat shuddered,and she and Jan went upstairs shining their torches before them.
"Who else is too scared to sleep on their own" Julie mocked

The posters say always be yourself unless you can be a mermaid then always be a mermaid.

Well I didn't want to be myself
So I dived into the sea
I sank underwater
Swam  in a shoal with fish
I felt free
Smiling ,I swam deeper
Suddenly I felt myself slipping away
Lights flashed before my eyes
Hands reached out to me
Two beautiful mermaids beckoned to me
I felt my body drift towards them
They sang a beautiful mesmerising song
It made my senses throb
Sending shivers down my spine
They combed my hair with sea shells
Plaited it with pearls
I pirouetted in the water
Together we danced a synchronized dance
No one on land had done this for me
No one seemed to care for me
I made ...

Words
Parents
Where would I be without my parents
Certainly I wouldn't be here
They love me unconditionally
They treat my brothers and sisters all the same
Dad worked hard all his life to provide all we needed
Mum worked hard all her life to love and care for us
They encouraged us to fulfil our dreams
They comforted us when we hurt
They gave me the ideal on which to build my relationships
They created a loving family
Life has not been easy for them
They have received some bitter blows
But love was what saw them through
And continues to this day
My parents are both elderly
And need some loving care
My Mum and Dad both know I will always be there
I hope I can show them what they mean to me

Don't go near him darling
I bet he's got the fleas
He is not really homeless he's just pulling a big con
He can make more money by begging
He ought to get a job
Would you like a coffee mate
Here I've got a fag
Sorry I've only got 50p in change
Here ,here's a sleeping bag
Bet he is a junkie
He'll spend it all on drugs
Go on gob on him
A green and gungy one
He's a bloody nutter
He ought to be in a home
Would you like to come to the shelter
And have a hot meal today
You can have a shave and a shower
A hot cuppa to set you on your way
Its very hard to sit and listen to what some people say
As they pass me by in their busy lives
I just live from day to day
