I loved illustrating this piece for @sarah.pers and how true how we get lost and all giddy when we fall in love. 🖤 Happy Friday all xxx

29.4 ⚊ Your presence lights my life - you're the perfect example of vision and freedom.

Maintaining a healthy and loving relationship is a challenge in itself but then to throw mental health problems into the mix, is a whole new ball game altogether. I was diagnosed with #OCD (Intrusive thoughts) early last year but the symptoms had been around since my 20s...it took me a while to seek help and come to terms with my differences. I have always been open about my mental health journey and in turn ended up starting a business - a conversational clothing on mental health @mim.apparel. But rather than mentioning what I've done to change the direction of my life, I wanted to take a moment to highlight, without romanticing, the importance of having someone that loves you through all of this. Can we praise their strength and patience, sticking by us during those monumental episodes we have every other day. Those who offer to JUST listen even if they don't understand and love us anyway.

Here's to my bestfriend and love - he's been doing this for over 3 years now mate.

I am on the shore and I burn

Until steam rises to cloud my judgement and calm my fervent heart.

Have I told you about where the seas meet?
Where the moon touches furthest from the sun's heat.

If I am a volcanic stream, then you are the azure dream that welcomes me.

My blood may sting, but touched by you it is harmless liquor
Nectarine and marine, I abandon the fires for the petrichor.

I can only apologise for the sometimes ruin in my wake,

At times I was sure that combustion could create.

But even from ash I'd climb down the cliffs and find you

Even from the surface I'd extinguish myself and dive to you

I cannot speak of passion as an old man reflecting.
I cannot see it as the awe from afar.

I burn in so many directions,

You are my only prevailing wind.

because words.

Send more letters of love was started from two very different personal ventures with the written word.
Today we find ourselves in a world where we want everything now and instantaneously, where everything is sent quickly, with little thought and is very depersonalised.
I want to bring people back to the art form that is writing, I want their passion to scream words from the page, I want each character to tell a story of the writer, I want time to slow and words to pour out. There is no rush. Take time out to spend with your thoughts and express them to someone you hold near and dear. This small gesture can change someone’s day, year or even life.
I guess you are wondering where this started for me. The first reason was a life changing one. One that taught me how precious the words expressed in someone’s handwriting style really speaks for who they are. We all read text messages in our friends' voices, well now imagine how much more accurate reading their handwriting, rather than font, can be. The first writer is my Mum, although not all the notes left by Mum on the kitchen bench were good ones - I was normally more likely to read ‘can someone hang out the washing’ - what once seemed like meaningless notes are so precious. My mum sustained an injury which took away her ability to do a lot of things, one being writing those notes left on the bench or the cards for our birthday, letters saying how proud she was of us. My family now holds onto a letter from 2006 with her handwriting on it, no matter what the message it is a beautiful reminder of the person she was. When we lost Mum in 2013 I remember thinking how nice it would have been to have something written from her to hold onto. My family missed this chance, but it doesn’t mean yours has to.

28.4 ⚊ artist: unknown
Don't wait for approval. If you want something go and get it because even in the loneliest moments, it is you who collects yourself. How are you going to miss out so much life in this little world if you wait for the same fingers who bookmark every mistake you have ever made and find the best seat to see your journey of struggles. Didn't I tell you that not all those who lend you a helping hand is a hand worth accepting. Tranquility envelopes solely through the tree of you not the branches of others. (shums)

THE GIRL YOU FORGOT ABOUT

A girl walks among us; her passion
Buried under layers of loathe and the
Cache-sexe that she wears to hide several
Daemons rearing their ugly heads.
Eyes glazed over with the darkness of her iniquity,
Falling into a million pieces in plain sight.
Ghosts of the past circled, like little
Horrors of her life pressing hard against her chest.
Ibogaine seeps slowly- reeks all over her, the specialists
Just injecting her, pumping her full of pain as she’s
Kicking and screaming all the way to hell.
Loneliness engulfs her,
Molding her unrelentingly into a frail shell.
Natheless, the tearing zippers and unintelligible grunts
Offer no permanent balm to her aching chaos.
Pure agony still floats around her guts,
Questions left unanswered still raise their brows,
Racetracks of emotions still crash inside her but
Shadows from the past no longer haunt her.
The little death she would die with that
Uxorious man that she hankered for to suck out the
Venom which has already sunken deep into her heart
Where she reaches into to wipe away the damage of the past.
Xenical glides around with all the other drugs
Yet she manages to feel
Zilch.

New poem from the upcoming anthology.

This poem is about that girl we forgot about, the one we forget about every day. The one that has become a call girl. The one that is battling addiction. The one that has no friends. The one that is being molested. The one that has been used and jilted too many times to count. That obese one that we mock.

I hope you feel what I felt when I wrote it.
