Biography
I'm 16, I've been writing all my life, and I just wanted a chance to see what other people thought of some of my poems. I prefer doing short stories though. Most of the poems I've chosen to put on this site sound quite depressing - sorry about that, I didn't plan it. I live in the Fens in the East of England and I'm about to start doing A-levels at sixth form... and that's about it.

To burst upon us like the great foaming wave

A stumbling shadow in the slumbering hallway.

Blazing ferociously as she squints mascara-streaked eyes.

They're sequins, or Christmas lights sparkling.
My shoulders, shaking?

I lie in a pool of thoughts
That seep into my pillow
From the bullet-sized hole in my consciousness.
