Nicola Beckett on The Man On The Bridge (2 hours ago)
Stephen Gospage on Bob was a cut above his fellow pupils at his new school (15 hours ago)
Suicide is not cowardly, but it’s not brave
Everyone says you become wiser with age

She is dead already,
those eyes have murdered her.
They shut her inside jars,
scream their pain, projection.

Haunting my days and wrestling with my nights
They won't let...

This generation needs to grow up
stop being so damn sensitive
a bunch of babies who can’t cope
well how about you stop being so damn negative?
Ha, wait, is that a trigger?
Not yet, but it will be
when you realize you’re the killer

It's just another typical night out with the lads
the beers are flowing
and shots are being downed
while shamelessly flirting with a hen party
enjoying a night on the town.
See that fella over there?
Aye that's the one
life and soul of the party
filling the air with banter and bravado
a proper man's man
tough as old boots he is.
Captain of his local rugby team
he's got hands like shov...
