written on new year's eve, in apprehension of the coming year and relationships it will bring


new year

cigarette and thinking

about you

park and the rolling stones

I want to call 

but for some reason

I can’t

I’m scared and sad

as if I’m not ready 


not ready for this yet

what will happen?

I want to call 

but I can’t

I’m not in love

I’m shaking, small

‘beautiful day...’ ironic

I’ve had a horrible day

ache ache ache

body shakes

I’ve wanted to see you

for so long

break don’t break

I’m not calm

I’m not strong

the world is shaking

the world is shaking me

it’s burning red

mean, mean red


A hundred songs fighting

a hundred tears hiding

I’m not calm and I

don’t want to say that

smoking helps me write

I’m shaking, shaking

waiting, waiting

I’ve been waiting so long.

I can tell this is a very personal piece for you; it's full of emotion, which I think is the best way to write, because it comes purely from the heart. Very nice work!!

this along with 'new year's eve' is one of the most raw pieces of writing that i've publicised as something that i actually tink is worth reading. it is a very personal piece and it is so great to hear that it comes across that way. thankyou for your comment
