Wednesday Words: A Delicate Fire

I know I haven’t done a blog for a couple of weeks, but, I’ve been stressing over looking for a job… which is something I will be writing about soon because OH MY GOODNESS it is stressful. 

Especially when you’re trying to get into a new field of work. It’s nigh on impossible! 

I still haven’t quite got there yet but am getting a lot closer, so fingers crossed. 

🙂

Anyway, I thought I would share with you a poem I wrote a little while ago called ‘A Delicate Fire’. I wrote it on a quiet train from London to Liverpool whilst in one of those moments where inspiration just hits you and bam, ten minutes later you’ve got something. 

Enjoy!


***


A Delicate Fire


whistling softly in the wind
cracking ligaments 
parchment
parched
darkness

fearsomely elegant
fiercely radiant
(more so than i) 
unapologetic
coward. 
(i try)

trash talking the moon
young ones swoon
excite
join in the fight
only later to retreat
glowing at your feet
redness in cheeks
coughing
fading
running out of air
quiet
waning…

time is running thin
but you know,
we never thought we’d win.
