Blindsided, Catapulted to my chest, breath stolen, In a second, swiftly, Unsuspecting. Mundane ticking of the clock, It keeps going, ruminating. But I am somewhere else, In another room, in another life With a presence that I long for so dearly, In a scene so vivid I can smell it, I can feel her hand, […]
Anti-social media. Dishevelled fingers meander across screens unable to fight, Lifeless eyes stare at sheets of glass penetrating light. Slim bodies pleading for nourishment provoke jealous disdain, Smiling faces gash at internal scars with the happiness they feign. Glorious views tease as they pretend to be savoured, Restlessness and disillusionment seen as attributes to be […]
The wind howls. Growling, tugging unsuspecting hairs to and fro. Bashing, pushing, and shrieking. The rain pours in torrents, merciless, wreaking havoc. Empowered, bold, loud. Free in the noise, I run. I squeal. No one else is crazy enough to be out in this weather. No one else would dare be struck by lightning. Only […]
Why do you say you own me when I cannot be confined? Why do you describe me when I cannot be defined? Why do you demand from me a journey that is not yours to live? Why do you command from me things I cannot give? Why do you disown me and condemn how […]
Drowning in the shallows.Spitting on light beams.Screaming before looking.Refusing to switch the light on, scramble in empty darkness.Repudiate dreams, repulsed by the nightmares that fill their space.Add petrol to flames, cry when they burn you.Latch onto airless space, wail when it suffocates you.Deny your hand is burning, admonish the blister.Throw stones at the mirror, expect […]
Peeling through chapters and tearing out pages. Only to tape them back together and scope out answers. Tugging at words, sewing them together, editing. Filing the edges, polishing the cover. Alone? The exception? Individual? We are all of the same paper. Bound together in chapters of varying lengths. Different fonts, languages, styles. Paragraphs we would […]
Boisterous, Crashing.Pulsing, raging.Redefining boundaries. Remnants of a blanket.Open crevasses, dents.Manoeuvres of a clumsy puppeteer. A thousand tin cans clinking.Buoys bobbing.Boats rocking. Flimsy, delicate silk.Weightless yet deep.Gentle yet underestimated. Permeable stability.
I cannot be measured, I cannot be disposed, I keep all things orderly and composed. My hands move as each event unravels, I dictate where life travels. Worshiped by all of human kind, I control your wandering mind. Presence is a concept for the fortunate few, Without me what would you do? Worthless and hated […]
