I could write the saddest poem tonight. We are born, we live, we die alone, and if we’re lucky we catch someone else’s eye some time in between. Half a glass of wine on my desk, you are 200 miles away. We met in a dream. Real life is cold. I don’t know what I’m saying but I wish I was alone and maybe then I wouldn’t feel so lonely.
“You must write every single day of your life… You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads… may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.”
Anonymous asked: hello!! i love reading your writing and i find lots of inspiration in it. i hope this isn't a stupid question, but i was wondering why finnvseverything has a password now, because there was one post about ideas you liked that i used to really like to read now and then
Hi! It’s not a stupid question at all. I changed the URL of my ‘main’ blog, and you can now find that post here. (I think that’s the one you’re referring to?) I use finnvseverything as my personal blog now. Thanks for the lovely message :)
Goldsmiths Student Union: Starting The Conversation
I spoke in this video for our SU’s mental health awareness campaign… It was hard and it was kinda the first time I actually felt like part of a community at uni, it’s for a really important cause so if you have a few spare minutes please watch! :)
you are the world I’m praying for which always seems to fall when I see you elsewhere and these are the cigarettes I wish we’d smoked outside of stories, trading the weighted words I lie here now and say inside my head.
Hey pals! Sorry I haven’t been posting much at all recently; I’ve been really busy with uni, making plans, writing things that don’t make much sense yet, other various nonsense.
I’m just posting because I’ve had an influx of new followers recently, and you might not know that I released an EP in March, which you can download from Bandcamp. I mention this now because I’ve got some really exciting projects in the works, including my book, which I’ve discussed with you before, and I’m thinking about a potential tour (both spoken word & music) of the UK and maybe Europe! Unfortunately these things do need funding, and although I work two jobs and have a student loan to cover my daily expenses, my creative plans currently feel like distant dreams. Any profits from my EP sales will be going straight back into funding my creative projects.
If my plan for a mini-tour comes to fruition, it’ll probably be taking place in June-July 2014, so if there’s anywhere you want me to come, or even if you have ideas for venues (small and intimate are preferable!) please get in contact!
(Also, if you’re struggling financially but you want my EP just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you the mp3s free of charge.)
Thanks, as always, for your continued support. It means an awful lot to me.
