Imprisonment is not a concrete physical concept. It is however, a state of mind and whenever you allow yourself to be told what is acceptable to say, do, how you should feel, what is right and wrong, the bars come crashing down around you. Therefore you can never be imprisoned until you allow yourself to become so. You are your own worst enemy. As well as your only saving grace.Words that repeat i...

A family reunion. Phrases like this have always sort of freaked me out to be brutally honest. I mean a ‘re’ union suggests that there was some sort of a union there in the first place. The only thing that really unifies this sad and sorry collection of folk is their burning passive hatred of each other and most other things around them. It’s pretty morbid however ...

He sat alone in his early 19th century wingback armchair, a roaring fire lighting the room around him in a way which instantly conveyed the brooding atmosphere surrounding our subject, he wore his favourite tweed jacket complete with leather elbow pads, a book in hand and a photo in the other. The cliché dripping from him almost as rapidly as the blood which now stained his darkened, dusty ...

(Just an I had, I wrote it in about 30 mins so if it's a bit rough around the edges forgive me :) ) I walked to work today. It gave me an immense sense of accomplishment might I add! I usually just hop into the rusted out ford fiesta sitting outside my flat and drive my lazy arse to work but today, today is a good day.

(N.B I needed to keep this to under 247 words for the task so forgive me for being a wee bit brief) I personally like the dark.
