National Poetry Day

Hey, so today is National Poetry Day. To support this I’ve decided to post up a poem that I wrote a few months back now. I hope it’s okay, please let me know what you think of it!


Close the door on the icy screams of your beloved,
And throw away the frozen glow that broke your heart in two,
Shivers trickle through your veins and outcast your humbled thoughts,
Lost feelings whirl around seeking pleasure in finding you.
For once you’re not a child anymore, but an entity thrown into the mass of broken souls,
Fiercely fighting to survive, your shadow sinks into the ground.
Alone and wilted on the floor of your lovers house, surrounded by rose petals and time;
Time that seeks upon you like an unwanted virtue then takes you at your best,
Changing minds and bodies until we join our familiar shadows in the ground.
Does afterlife even exist?
We can only be sure of the one we’re living now,
And even this is full of fakery and wicked spells that charm you towards hell.
Fire blood and anguish carves the world joined with hope, love and ambition.
We see only what we want and act on what pleases us, what pleases you.
Together in a unity we stand alone, after all we are mammals in this world
That destroy other creatures searching for light and all for what?
In the end we will become the earth around us, falling from the sky in tiny droplets,
Reborn into an unknown world, not the one we see now.
Forever changing,
Forever moving.
Yet death is just a step away.

Birthday, Woodnote, Paper Balls and Amazingness


Sat in a free again. I have nothing to de except read The Great Gatsby and maybe learn some more spellings. Though I really cannot be bothered with that. Instead we are sat throwing paper balls in our friend’s direction. It’s a fun game. And by the way, I’m sat next to the most amazing person in the world ;)  (Yeah, she told me to put that) but she is pretty amazing!!!

If you’ve been following my tweets you’ll know that Woodnote now has its own blog and the next issue will be out November time.  It’ll feature Clint Boon, Tim Burgess, Tom Caulfield a review from Suicide Party’s front man, Joey Ackland, and reviews on the Bingley Fest and Tim Peaks diner at Kendal Calling. An ace issue to end the year!

Check out its blog here: www.woodnotemagazine.blogspot.com

It’s also my mum birthday today; so, happy birthday mum! She’s got a new bike which is lovely, but mine and my sisters present to her is all the way in Leeds, it’s gonna be a very late Birthday present. (Or an early Christmas present at that!)

Not much else has been going on really, just going to and from college every day. It’s so tiring I hate setting my alarm for 5:55am every Sunday night; is depressing! Though the lessons and the people are ace, it’s just the bus rides and the early starts are no good!

That’s about it for now I guess. If you’d like a copy of the next issue of Woodnote e-mail me at Wood_note@hotmail.co.uk or find us on twitter @_woodnote / @AbiGillibrand
