A postcard from Will D

Sunday, 19 October 2014




I know it's cruel to think I'm breaking, so selfish and fickle to suggest my youth has run its course on love/luck(?),

                              even if only for those few moments I sat awake on the corner of your bed.

Your eyes glint and
shatter           all
of the prewritten unrhymed poems I'll scribble on the backs of receipts on the train home that tell me
I'm
not
fine.
It is whatever,
but whatever it was certainly wasn't.
You are too kind to notice and I am too kind to care,
it's always the same and I struggle to be that kind
anymore.

Even still, I wish I could change your mind.

  3. this is really all I needed today. When I feel a bit lost I always come back here to your blog and you manage to make me feel better, like everything goes back to its place, I don't know, you fix things.
    Thank you, and to Will too.
    Lots of Love
