Wednesday Writing: Life Itself

If you are a regular to the way things run on this blog, you may know I'm completely un-organised when it comes to when exactly I post a piece of my writing. Wednesday Writing is that time, every few weeks, where I do post something. As writing is what I love to do. Although it never makes much sense when re-reading it!
Moments are like waves crashing by the shore,
Once they reach the sand, there is only a certain amount of time until they leave.
They shine in the sunlight,
They crash on rocks,
They leave and never come back.
Memories are a book,
An un-putdownable thriller in which you can never turn back.
They make your heart-stop.
They make tears tumble down your face.
They capture you, and stay for ever.
Love is a lullaby,
A sweet sound that puts a spring in your step,
That at first, is beautiful.
That moves into deeper, more intricate verses.
That has a chorus you'll remember but, that must end.
It can't fail.
A fairground, one that is calling for me.
That makes you giddy.
That can hide your fear.
That shows you care, or don't in the case of a falling friend.
Life is this,
A scrapbook made up of all in one.
That, with one piece missing, fails to be.
That, without moments, there are never memories.
That, without love, there is never laughter.
That has no explanation but I can say I tried my best.



    Love it! I love writing too so I love this feature :) Thanks for sharing!

    1. Zoe, THANK YOU SO MUCH! That means a huge amount to me - I've never had anyone fangirl over my writing. :)

  2. Seconding Zoe, your writing is beautiful! Very poetic!

    I also love writing but haven't been doing much of it lately because I'm always so busy! I'm seriously having withdrawals! :(

    1. Thank you, Rachel! I'd love to read some of your writing too - I'm sure you're fantastic! Sometimes, I just have the urge to write. That's when Wednesday Writing gets posted!

  3. OMMMMGG SOPHIEEE WHEN ARE YOU WRITING A BOOK?! hmm..i seem to be seriously slacking in the writing department recently, i feel the need to get back into it now! :))

    1. AHHH - THANK YOU SO MUCH, HAWWA! I love writing, but prefer poetry to novels. I think it's because they're short and sweet! :)

  4. I really don't get poetry. I can read it and analyse it, BUT I JUST CAN'T WRITE IT! Haiku's are probably my limit...

    This is really good, Sophie! You're very good at writing!

    1. I'm not very good at analysing it - but I do like writing it!

      Thank you! :)

  5. Wow Sophie this is SO good! I've recently reallllyyyy gotten into poetry so this was a pleasure to read. :) Thank you SO much for sharing, you've inspired me to write some of my own poetry! :D

    1. Thank you so much, Ruby! Oooh, I'd love to read some of yours! :)

  6. Wow Sophie! You know that I'm a massive fan of your writing because seriously, you are so talented!!! Your writing is so beautiful and it makes me wish I had better talent in that department. Remember me when your first novel goes best seller :)

    1. Thank you so, so much Sunny! You're probably an amazing writer yourself, and thanks again!

      If it ever does, it would be because of your comments! Seriously, they always make my day!

  7. You are such an amazing writer Sophie! Gosh, I'm so jealous! You have so much talent! I love this poem to bits, it's beautiful :')

    1. Awh, Jack, thank you so much! These comments mean the world to me! Don't be jealous, I haven't seen any of your writing and know I would be of yours!

      You've almost made me cry!

  8. Wow, it's so emotive... Sophie, you have skill. I love the way each thing is dynamic basically, like '...or don't in the case of a falling friend.' That made me smile as I know what most people are like! You really did capture the scrapbook of life- continue to write! :D

    1. Thank you so much! I just picture my friends falling over, it also made me laugh!

      Thanks! :) x

  9. Wow, Sophie, you're writing is so brilliant- really beautiful poem! :)
