A Sunday Scribbles poem, and a mini update!

Happy Easter Everyone!

I intended to write a short story this week, but although I’ve been writing, it’s all work in progress related. I’ve also been busy preparing to welcome our kitten home, beta-reading an epic fantasy novella, and researching marketing for my university project. It’s all go right now!

Blog posts might be a bit off schedule until after my assignment deadline near the end of May, especially as we pick up this little ball of fluff on Tuesday:

I’ll write a story next week, unless he’s totally distracting ๐Ÿ™‚ This week? I scribbled a dark poem. (It covers loss, and death, so might be best avoided if you’re feeling down).

What is it to lose?

Losing things.

Keys, wallet, misplaced,

mind adrift.

Losing sleep.

That crushing feeling,

of nightmares.

Losing time.

Every waking moment,

of my life.

Losing my edge.

The advantage,

of having nothing.

Losing heart.

I can’t lose her,

my world.

Losing feeling.

When light fades,

from your eyes.

Does it hurt?

One day I’ll know,

it’s inevitable.

I don’t often write poetry, and I’m no expert, but I enjoy it from time to time when I’m feeling a lot of things. This is partly based on a visit with my Nan, who’s more frail every time I see her.ย 

I hope you had a great Easter weekend! Now go read something happy or look at funny cat videos ๐Ÿ™‚


  1. I’m sorry about your nan, it’s so hard to see loved ones age, get ill, become frail. As for the poem, I think you wrote it beautifully ย โ™ฅ
    Tomorrow’s the big day then – give the little munchin a ‘welcome home’ hurrah from me! ๐Ÿ˜€
