A Generation of Lost Dreamers

I think we should always remain as dazed dreamers;
String ambitions like comets in our starry eyes
And follow their trails across the skies.

I think we should dream of the wonderfully impossible;
Hold fantasies like beacons of soft, hopeful glow
And follow their light wherever they go.

A Small Thank-You

I’d just like to take a quick moment to thank everyone who has supported me in these past few months with everything I’ve been doing. Your feedback posts, your comments and your views have all helped me to remain positive about writing, and it’s nice to have a space on the internet I can let myself out and have people not judge. So to my parents, my friends, Dazed, Typewriters and Lyssa; thank you so much for keeping a smile on my face and never stop being yourselves, okay? 

I love you all and have a wonderful Autumn.

Life of a Waitress

The funny part about being a waitress is getting
To glimpse the most intimate parts of a person.
I know how much milk you take in your coffee,
How many sugars go into your tea;
If you prefer flavours or just a ‘plain old cuppa’,
If you daintily sip, or hastily slurp.
You pour me life stories as I pour you refills,
And laughter froths over flavoured lattes as
We share a private joke.

And yet; As you leave
You become just another face among a sea of faces,
Another clanging of change; another torn receipt,
Another mumbled thank you and small smile as you go.
Half empty mugs hold your last traces, a final legacy
Only to be swept up and replaced by another face,
One more coffee order.
