The Year Pt. I

That morning
after a late one,
laughing and falling back asleep
or one is asleep
the other just holding her
watching light flicker on the wall

Neither knows what time it is
both know it doesn’t matter
there’s no time
with you
half-asleep

Last night faded faraway
and you in my
arms here,
the white sheets and me
cradling you asleep
fingers softly on
the pillow

A phone buzzes
but there’s nothing
outside of this room,
nothing
to take you away from me, now

Nothing but time

Tony Abbott and Scott Morrison: Together Forever

This May, our beloved Prime Minister Tony Abbott took the hand of his long-time lover and fellow politician: Scott Morrison in marriage.

The Australian nation looked on from television screens and twitter feeds around the country, handkerchiefs soaked in happy tears, whilst the two handsome politicians declared their eternal love for each other – staring into each other’s deep hazel eyes. Amateur creative journalist Camilla Eustance was lucky enough to capture this fleeting moment from the wedding ceremony as the joyous couple walked down the isle, holding sugar-filled roses and each other’s smooth, suntanned hands. Shortly after the wedding ceremony, flanked by family, friends, and kangaroos, Tony and Scott boarded the purple plane, destined for Ireland – where they are allegedly spending their honeymoon. Congratulations to Australia’s newest sweethearts.
