    My Need

    So much of my life has been spent in the dark. Hiding from outside life, hiding from my past, my fears, guilt that eats you up. Something I noticed when I would be in the midst of some deep dark depression was the need to cocoon myself away. Locked in my bedroom. Once I realized...

    Only to Dry My Washing

    I just need the sun to come out just for a little while to dry my work uniform ready for tomorrow! Once it's dry I don't care if it rains until tomorrow, in fact I hope it does because then I won't have to worry about watering the garden - Hee hee, I'm lazy!

    Sunshine

    Who can live without that bright, golden veil of heat? Can mornings be the same without the sun's ray patterns on our curtains or the sheer light that gently nods our eyes awake? Can I live without the smell of sun on my hair and skin? Not me. Can't live without it.

    Wrong Place For It Though
