wolves of siena...


There are werewolves on the streets of Siena...

My Dad took these for me in Siena, Italy. Feeding my wolf obsession.

diary/ october...

October 2012. Things were okay and then came the slap. Cancer, rejection and a funeral. Both my brothers and my parents overseas. Crying to myself. Saying nothing, feeling everything. We held each other up but as usual I'm the bridge even though I'm smaller. I built myself that way and it's alright because I can take it. Halloween came and then there were some smiles even if they were painted on. That's it. More than enough. Peace x

for billy...


For Billy

The razors edge
Balancing
Hedged bets
Defeated
Suck up
Despair
Ignore
Lungs
Vice gripped
Shredded bare
Keep smiling
At the rot of lies
Keep positive
As darkness
Crushes
Dare not indulge
In a frown or
Crown of thorns
It is okay
Others say
It is okay
Don't complain
Hurt quietly
Invisibly
Silently
Dance
On glass
Dance
On nails
In the moonlight
Of your hatred
Tell everyone
You are fine
Dull
As the knife
In your back.

halloweening...

Halloween. It's that day of the year when oiled gates creak, the wind whistles, doors slam and a Cherry Ripe counts as breakfast because it contains 'fruit'. I love Halloween. For me it's all about dressing up, watching horror movies, having fun and spending time with my family. On Halloween night we always have a harvest style dinner where we pay our respects and be thankful for what we have. On the nights surrounding the 31st we party and spook about being silly. Day of the Dead was definitely a theme for me this year mostly because I didn't have to buy anything to make my costumes. I'm not sure what that says about me... :)

Happy Halloween- I hope yours was suitably creepy. Boo! Peace. x
