I’ve already posted an initial version of this piece, this is a revised and slightly longer version. It’s a short and simple mystery story but the mystery is not of the usual kind. That’s all I can say. I’m not normally one for writing romance but this is bitter-sweet. I hope you don’t find too cheesy/corny, if you do let me know!
An imagined continuation (with illustrations!) of the Beatles song ‘Eleanor Rigby.’ I’ve continued the profoundly sad song, which centres on old-age loneliness, by focusing on Eleanor’s experience beyond the grave as she reflects on her own dreams and those of others.
A short story inspired by a sad and true tale. The Umbrella Guy explores and reflects on grief. It questions whether it is ever the lesser evil to lie instead of telling a painful truth.
I love my hometown very much, it is my safe haven and filled with inspirational people. This short poem is inspired by my town Ulverston, UK.
