#2 Harmonise

definition: add notes to (a melody) to produce a pleasing combination


Girl.

I’m the girl who wonders
if she truly has stars beneath her skin
or if she’d spend her entire life
setting off fireworks into daylight
no spark, no shine
the sky
dotted by the clouds left behind
unable to answer the explosive questions
that fill her dazed mind 


God.

who am I?
I am a girl who has a heart that yearns for a soul
for loss of control
to scream at the seas for a reason to be
who is He?
they say only when you’re engulfed in darkness
can you see beyond the trees
so I stand at the edge of the known world
in the night
climb onto the highest branch
look towards the horizon
for blessed light
and can’t imagine anything existing
beyond my limited sight

#1 Staccato

definition: with each sound or note sharply detached or separated from the others


Map.

no map

no direction 

but surely that means 

anywhere I place my next step

I will be on the right path.


Hope.

hope is in the crowds

in the eyes of those who have the potential

to be wise, to be honest, to be kind

but also the capacity

to hate, to torture, to rape 

I am reflected in their pupils

staring back, I realise

my fate

is mine to create.
