Meg In Sunderland

I thought it was about time I actually shared some of my university work with you twinkly li’l moonbeams.

This collection of screen shots are from my Narrative book PDF called Meg In Sunderland, read into it what you will as I prefer for my work to speak for itself.

My cover was illustrated by Elliot Turner.

Little Meg fell down the hole

Bumped her head and

Bruised her soul.

Many many moons ago

She reached the inevitable plateau.

Brazen but broken

Burdened and beaten.

She hit the wall

It made her crawl

Sleeping until nightfall.

She arrived in Sunderland

The Wonderland

Not knowing a soul

Leaving everyone behind to enrol.

Cruel mental health and

Her heart on the shelf

Keeping herself

To herself.

There are good days and bad days as well as in between days

They said it was a phase

As her mind decays

An endless parade of cabarets.

Drowning in a flood of her tears

Like Alice did, she perseveres

The hope of happiness disappears

But always keeps itself near.

She may give you a scare

But do not despair

She wouldn’t dream of being elsewhere.

It will all end well

She’ll come out of her shell

She’s no longer under the spell

To Meg’s demons

Farewell.
