Noun, British 

A person or shop selling newspapers, magazines, or confectionery, etc.


“I am your deranged symphony
cacophony of clambering percussions
and whinging violins
favouring high frequency vibratos
as the softest song
I shall sing from the depths of my soul
brings to life my darkness
an opera’s ghost
or historical inaccuracies
echoed by a bleak, haunting chorus
whichever the case
the truth’ll be skewed
and the newsagents won’t know
they got it wrong
my flaws aren’t beautiful
like a September sunset
yet this moment is what
I’ll be remembered by.”

  1. Welcome
    The eff

    Loved this, from that insanely effing brilliant opening line to that beauty of a phrase, “opera’s ghost” and that September sunset, for many many many reasons grabbed my little heart and ran.

    Edit this next phrase if you’re trying to keep your blog as classy as it is, but I FUCKING loved this, baby
