As We Drove Through the Pennines
A short poem I think I must have written as a child going on a day outing somewhere with the family. I think I was miserable that day, and it must have been raining. I was probably on the brink of becoming a teenager.

I believe this poem is based on my classes and classmates at college. I think the idea came to me that we were all like fish in a fish-tank.

Evil Asparagus
One of my favourite poems based on a candlestick holder (of all things), which was a dragon. I named him Asparagus. He reminded me of knights and maidens, so I used him as inspiration for my own knight in shining armour (who I had yet to meet).

Dear God
A weird poem I penned when I got my first job as a cleaner. I think it was about the abrupt introduction to the world of employment, how it differed from college life, and also about typical teenage frustrations.

Dead Man Walking
This poem is about my old History teacher. Maybe it sounds a bit cruel, but he really was a lovely man and I think I wrote this out of frustration after he yelled at me one day.

Books
I wrote this when feeling frustrated with my lack of progress in trying to get a literary agent to accept one of my books to publish. Some things never change.

A poem I once wrote about my boyfriend (now my fiance) and myself, and about the life before us when he dated my best friend for a while (who was the same Zodiac sign as him - a Pisces). I am Aries.
