So…live.

There are two sides to every tale. For every positive there is a negative. For every good there is a bad. For every perfection there is an imperfection. For every compliment there is an insult. For every opportunity there is a challenge. For every opinion there is an argument. For every dream there is a […]

Where’s my voice gone?

                                                 Writing can be scary. That is probably a bit hypocritical of me to say since I try to promote it so much for personal relaxation and freedom of expression. But honestly… I’ve been having a major block lately. A major turn-off to my daily journaling and a strong heaving wave of dread sweeps […]

The upside down world.

She gazes at the sea and wonders. What would it be like to live in the upside down world? The one that she sees so clearly reflected on the still of the water’s surface. The clumsy mirroring as if on foil. The world pouring over the skyline and settling on the surface of the ocean. […]

Being Eimear.

Laughter cannot be contained. Writing passionately, unrestrained. Probably paint and coffee stained. Bundles of sheets scribbled upon with pure devotion. A brain filled with ideas, worries and commotion. Hearing people with empathy and emotion. Lost in a books pages with intense concentration. A tendency for messiness and procrastination. Distracted easily, encapsulated by rumination. When I […]

Show up.

My advice? Get the help you deserve. I have spent a lot of time in a purgatory somewhere between anxiety, low mood and sleepwalking through my life. This year finally pushed me to breaking point. It finally made me realise that I couldn’t let my fears control me anymore. That I had to face some […]

Grief.

Blindsided, Catapulted to my chest, breath stolen, In a second, swiftly, Unsuspecting. Mundane ticking of the clock, It keeps going, ruminating. But I am somewhere else, In another room, in another life With a presence that I long for so dearly, In a scene so vivid I can smell it, I can feel her hand, […]

Social Media.

Anti-social media. Dishevelled fingers meander across screens unable to fight, Lifeless eyes stare at sheets of glass penetrating light. Slim bodies pleading for nourishment provoke jealous disdain, Smiling faces gash at internal scars with the happiness they feign. Glorious views tease as they pretend to be savoured, Restlessness and disillusionment seen as attributes to be […]

Calm in the storm.

The wind howls. Growling, tugging unsuspecting hairs to and fro. Bashing, pushing, and shrieking. The rain pours in torrents, merciless, wreaking havoc. Empowered, bold, loud. Free in the noise, I run. I squeal. No one else is crazy enough to be out in this weather. No one else would dare be struck by lightning. Only […]

Rosie.

A chair lies empty, lifeless, and bare. Filled only with shadows of the memories we share. Once held by mischievous giggles, warm faces. Slobbery kisses, Strangling embraces. Infectious laughter compelling hearts to dance. Relentless Robbing at every waking chance. Boisterous roguery, unrestrained affection, Gentle soul, with kindness and connection. A smile that could quell a […]

Be Yourself.

Every single one of us has a box we are trapped in. Confining discomfort we tolerate, numb and avoid straying from. We all wonder what lifting the lid might look like. What expression of ourselves could be set free? Yet in reality what we see is ugly. It is messy. It is not a neat […]
