I Thought I Would FlyWhen I was five,I Thought I Would Fly by TashiHazeldine
I ran away.
I took my favourite teddy,
Three packets of raisins,
And a blanket.
I climbed the huge old sycamore tree,
In the middle of common,
And I stayed there until it got dark.
When I was seven,
I ran away.
We were in town,
I’d been left outside the bank.
So I simply walked away.
Maybe that was the start of it.
Walking. Not running.
Disappearing. Not fighting.
When I was ten,
I ran away for real.
I took my piggy bank,
My mother’s purse,
A change of socks,
And I left just as it got dark.
When I was fourteen,
I discovered there was a different way out,
How to leave the madhouse?
Join the inmates.
When I was fifteen,
I was sent to see a man with a beard,
He asked me questions, all of them meaningless,
Why had I jumped?
I smiled. I’d been dead for a while, you see.
“Because I thought I would fly.”
Wait for me.I’ll be home before you know it!!Wait for me. by TashiHazeldine
Wait for me.
It’s been two years, and I’m still waiting. We were so young when we said goodbye, weren’t we? It was just this same October day, but it was raining. It isn’t today.
We were sharing my umbrella outside the terminal, so close I could feel your breath against my cheek when you looked down and smiled.
-I am going to miss you so bad.
I said it with a grin, it was a promise and a joke – all rolled into one fateful sentence.
-You’re so daft.
I laughed against your chest.
-I know, right?
I could feel your breath huff out of your chest, my arms wrapped loosely around you, your arms pressing my shoulders to you. It was harder than you let on, saying goodbye – wasn’t it?
-I’m not pulling away first.
You muttered it into my hair and I released my arms, pushing against your chest. Hold on, girl. What are you doing?!
Hobgoblin's LanternsHobgoblin's Lanterns by TashiHazeldine
Our conversation began playfully, as they always did. Your dark hair was shining in the sunlight, and I wondered whether I'd made a mistake. I wondered what I'd found to dislike in you, with your witty banter and your light, teasing tone. I wondered why I'd done it. I wondered if I could go back, if I should take the blame for something I'd thought was your fault. We all make mistakes, don't we?
When I was a child, my mother often read me a fable about hobgoblins that lured travellers into the peat bogs during misty nights. They would wave lanterns and promise sweet things, such sweet things, that the travellers would lose the path and follow them. She would kiss me goodnight, and tell me not to listen if they cam calling.
My brother and I would lark around on the mountain ridges with sticks, pretending there were lanterns hanging from the end.
Come over here, it's the safe path, my pretty, just follow my light - All accompanied by ten year old laughter and the sparkling eyes that I ju
Once upon a time in the middle of winter, when the flakes of snow were falling like feathers from the sky, a queen sat at a window sewing, and the frame of the window was made of black ebony. And whilst she was sewing and looking out of the window at the snow, she...
That's Snow White.
Sorry guys :3
No, I don't have hair the colour of ebony, or skin as white as snow, or even lips the colour of blood.
Instead I have this awful habit of laughing at awkward circumstances and making up bad puns with my brother.
I'm Tasha, and I live most of the way up a Welsh mountainside.
It's a pleasure to meet you
