Moths

Butterflies
get all the glory
whilst you
get all the blame…

They say
you’re drawn to the flame
to play there
quite unaware
your game is of life and death…

And yet,
each night you flow
to that golden glow
because you know
the bright light shows
you’re not alone
for life remains unchanged, and so
there’s still a little hope
left.
(Inspired by #DimpleVerse prompt ‘Moth’)

I love words; both reading and writing them. I've started this site in order to have a depository for all the random ramblings which are continually swirling around my mind. Some of the aforementioned ramblings may be quite serious but the majority probably won't be. I'm a single mother living in Norwich. I'm also autistic. This isn't the defining component of my personality, although it is a significant one, and one which I think has a heavy influence on my writing, which is why I choose to highlight it. I also feel no shame over being autistic and refuse to perceive it as a disability. The way I see it, life is hard work whichever way your brain is wired up. Aside from all things wordy, I also love music. I find it to be an incredible mood enhancer, as well as a great enabler for the imagination. I love all kinds of music, though hard house in particular - as everything in life is better when it's hard... I hope you enjoy my musings and thank you for reading!
