You touch where none have touched,
Catch my future as it flutters through.
Cradling it, softly you ask,
“You all right?”
I cannot speak.
You see what none have seen,
Catch each emotion as it flickers across.
Smiling knowingly, you ask,
“What are you thinking?”
I will not speak.
You dare where none have dared,
Catch my hand as it shakes.
Lacing it into yours, you ask,
“What do you want?”
I am exposed, known,
As time holds still and understanding wavers.
You fall silent.
Sarah Hughes has an addiction to writing, which lead her to read English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Warwick. This addiction often manifests itself as illegible scribblings from ideas late at night, which would be inconvenient if she wasn’t exceptional at sleeping and deciphering her own handwriting.
She thrives on difficult Christian questions and loves discussing her Lord with anyone who will listen, from teachers to best friends to classmates. But what she loves most is sharing the love that sustains and saves her, in the imperfect way she manages.
Sarah also has a flair for the dramatic and enjoys exploring character motivations both on the page and off. When not reading, she can be found singing along to her favorite music, playing her guitar, or, most likely, writing. Her favorite days are uninterrupted writing days, the mystical mornings when stories are created.
