COPING WITH UNSUPPORTIVE FRIENDS

I have the shortest attention span when it comes to devoting hours into growing things I find bland, unimaginative and boring. Things that a random stone’s throw would land upon. So whilst I wouldn’t say I’m adventurous, my boundary of safety definitely begins outside the box. My greatest resource being my mind and my pocket…

THE NORMALCY OF BREATHLESSNESS

If you paused for a minute you’d notice the stream of unconscious bodies lacing your path. There but not really there engaging in the rigmarole of life dragging towards the finish line. If you perceive them as fine, you might have found the one who needs saving. Those who aren’t breathing lay disguised in normalcy…

WHY DO YOU SEND THORNS MY WAY?

I’ve learnt not to get too excited with the appearance of things when it comes to you. Even your love comes with the rough cast of dragon skin and your breath leaves a trail of fire on the nape of my neck. The same fire that I find crowning the gifts you send me, a…

THE WHISPERS BETWEEN ME AND ME

A fight within myself I continue to face as the me within myself speaks to me. Tiny voice, loud enough to tell me that I have failed, forces me to defend we because time surely can’t have gone to waste. The year like a summer’s breeze rushes past me and from nowhere I find myself…

MY LOVER

I had a lover once who ate away the dark clouds to expose warm sunshine. Rays that would heat our dark skin until it matched the dirt of his eyes. Pools of brown waters murky from the visions they had swallowed. Yet I found myself drawn to them sinking quickly into these sand filled pits…

DARK DANCES

Today is a 7. If it wasn’t for my aching back that keeps getting worse I would tell you that today I saw continuous sunshine on the confused sky. I wouldn’t tell you I was happy though because that would be a lie and I don’t know what happiness feels like. I imagine it would…

BELIEVE ME

I wanted you to believe me When I told you the walls were closing in on me

MISS ME

I heard that you missed me Maybe not now but a fortnight ago on that chilly night

I WATCH SKIES

Not all stars twinkle I discovered as I indulged myself in some star gazing as I do these days. I found the dullness of some stars in the dark sky peculiar and with this observation came many others. “The stars in the sky are smaller that the earth,” I shared my findings with my father…

I WON A MILLION DOLLARS

I have just woken up to the news that I’m a millionaire and after what seems like an eternity of screaming and jumping and episodes of breathlessness I have posted on all my social media platforms. I have followed my announcement with cliche uploads of “If you weren’t there during the come up get lost”…

Warped Visions

I don’t think I can tell the difference between reality and fantasy anymore, if I can it doesn’t really bother me. I guess that’s what happens when you’re broken, numbness takes over because if you could actually feel the pain you would die. I don’t care about much these days, I don’t find myself seeking…
