You may think you still control me,
You may think that you still own me –
But there’s something you should know.

I was never your possession,
I was only your obsession,
And the more that you suppressed me
the lesser grew your hold.

So stop clawing at my shadow.
Stop trying to keep your choke-hold, and

let me breathe,
And be my own soul,
For it’s time you let me go.

(Inspired by #microprompt ‘Go’)

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!
