Steps in the Frost


Where you walk the frost seems brighter,

A memory of spring to come,

Rather than herald of snow and chill,

The brusque winter air an excuse

To huddle tighter together,

In our greatcoats and scarves,

Until the warmth of our

Home’s fire takes us back

Within its comforting embrace.



There’s something in these nights

Days spent trudging through slush,

That bound us both together,

More than any ice-born hold

Could seek to sever. Alone, together..




This one is for my boyfriend, the ever wonderful Ben, but shhh don’t tell anyone i’m being soppy.


I’m putting all this up for freeeeeee, for the love of writing and your enjoyment, and if you would like to use it for your own purposes that would be awesome. However, it’s my writing, and I must ask you to ask me first, and credit me (obviously). Also, if you do I’d really love to see/hear/watch it!

If you’d like to support me, on a monthly basis, then i’d love you forever, and feel free to sign up for my patreon here – i’ll link the blog to here whenever I post something new, as well as a few extra snippets just for patrons (so extracts of WIP larger projects etc)

If you would also like to help me keep putting things up for free, and support my writing but would rather not do monthly donations, my paypal is:


Share, like, comment, critique, spread the word(s) and thankyou for visiting my page, you’re all wonderful.

I’ve also done recordings of several of my poems and stories, which are available on soundcloud here
