I'm in my mid-twenties, and currently living in Bristol. I've been interested in poetry since primary school, having won a prize in a small poetry competition. I slightly lost interest in it during comprehensive school but re-discovered my interest when studying poetry and prose at sixth form. Shortly after starting university I began writing poetry again and since then have been rather prolific. I also write lyrics/music. First published poem was featured in the Feburary 2014 Lastbench issue.
COALITION Frozen, they placed heavy footprints on hard-packed foliage, etched ice; the withered bark stretched around in slanting lines, near-collapsing. Moving these weights, one step, two; these notions in a February mist; regrets like the broken skies above, where clouds drift dark with mingled smoke from fires marking from whence they came. But no scars give away their crime; forged steel purpose in their mind; enclosures rigid, fences reared, and minutes pass, drift, into years... That one summer, where they fell together, interloping, eager-eyed; all promises once carved in ink; erased and shredded, burned, buried. Night now draws on, the stars are veiled, for no lights would be seen shining upon them.
