In an empty empty bed

You're surrounded by last nights pyjamas, crumpled sheets, an extra blanket, cuddly toys you're just a little bit too old for and probably a chocolate wrapper of some kind.

I don’t know who I am

Someone asked me what my favourite colour was the other day. My first reaction was to respond with pink. But then I wondered if it was still pink. The more I thought about it, the more I realised that I don't know who I am. My Mum, if she was still with us, would tell [...]

Everything I ever wanted?
