Maybe I Just Like Fairy Lights: A Poem

Hi there! It’a been a week since I last published on here, due to exams, celebrating after exams, and then moving back from uni, and then working a full day yesterday (and then sleeping for 12 hours). I’m going to try and post regularly over the summer, so we’ll see how that goes!

I hope you enjoy this little poem that I wrote this evening. I’ve just put some fairy lights up on my bookshelves and they caught my attention whilst I was looking around for inspiration. I just put all my uni books on the shelves and they’re jam-packed!

If you have any thoughts about any of my posts, I always appreciate feedback, positive or negative, so don’t be afraid to tell me what you think – it’s really useful! So drop a comment down below, or contact me through my blog website.



Staring at my fairy lights,

Peacock feathers and

Ornamental postcards,

I wonder;


Can we all be explained

By a sum of cliches,


Or is there something inside

That they’re all trying to hide?
