I remember it like it only happened yesterday. My first time stepping on a train was a short hour journey to Preston some four years ago. Time seems to go by in such short heartbeats. It was my first time really acting on a crush I had; I'd known the person only a short while …
SKELETONS: A NEW POEM
she doesn’t fit into the same jeans
folded in the drawer in her room;
the ones with the scuffed knees
disclosing dirty bones.
She’s reached for the same clothes

When I was younger I …
