In an empty empty bed

When you're in an empty bed. It's vast, almost never ending. 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.

An open letter to the boy I love who is moving away

I don’t know what to tell you when you ask where it hurts
