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 […]

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 […]

Own your story.

Her back aches. The books got too heavy. She couldn’t read them. The language was ambiguous and chapters continued in disdainful jargon. She felt like pages were missing in places and piled in others. She tried learning to decipher the words. But she lost the battle. She tried getting it translated. But no one else […]

My sisters presence.

It’s like a warm room. A welcome light. A laugh that makes your belly dance around. It’s like a smell that takes you a million miles away to some place familiar, recognisable, yet new all at the same time. A cherished friend hugging you. A safety net when you’re drowning in the oceans depths. The […]

The beauty of your pages.

Peeling through chapters and tearing out pages. Only to tape them back together and scope out answers. Tugging at words, sewing them together, editing. Filing the edges, polishing the cover. Alone? The exception? Individual? We are all of the same paper. Bound together in chapters of varying lengths. Different fonts, languages, styles. Paragraphs we would […]

Writing

Poking. Prodding. Pushing. Covered by a thick coat. Of voices. Once the tangible voices of people, people who ingrained their opinions in you. And you hear their voices as your own. No distinction. Yet another piece of you smeared over. Concealed. Wrapped in packaging that people found more acceptable. Less blinding. And yet you sit. […]
