My sisters presence.

It’s like a warm room. A welcome light. A laugh that makes your belly dance around. It’s like a smell that takes you a million miles away to some place familiar, recognisable, yet new all at the same time. A cherished friend hugging you. A safety net when you’re drowning in the oceans depths. The […]

The beauty of your pages.

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 […]

The Bully in her mind.

He taunts her and taints her voice. She hates him. But she loves how he fills the gaps that lay bare when he is not there. She loves that he numbs her. That his spluttering retorts confirm her worries. That in some way she is validated by his outbursts. Each quickening of his pulse, each […]

Waves

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.

Hope

She is trapped in a box. There are chains tied around her ankles. Weighing down the chains she bares is a heavy stone, heavier than she. The box is filled with water, engulfing her body, soon submerging her head beneath it. She splutters and chokes fighting for air. She pulls the chains as she panics […]

My favourite place.

The car door slams shut. My hands touch the metal gate, lifting it slightly, pushing my way in. The waves are crashing against the rocks, demanding to be heard. Their violent froth threatens to hit me as I stop breathing and take in the mesmeric display before me. Icy droplets dance and play and perform. […]

20 Years Stolen by a Single Letter.

She slugs the end of her coffee, cold and brittle settling like silt on her tongue. She swallows unknowing. Around her there is white clinical walls extending from corner to corner. There is a blemish in their intersection, but she doesn’t notice. There is a painting, smudged on a canvas. A blur. An insignificant stroke […]

Writing

Poking. Prodding. Pushing. Covered by a thick coat. Of voices. Once the tangible voices of people, people who ingrained their opinions in you. And you hear their voices as your own. No distinction. Yet another piece of you smeared over. Concealed. Wrapped in packaging that people found more acceptable. Less blinding. And yet you sit. […]

The Ominous Clock

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 […]

The Big launch.

Wow. I am finally doing this. Finally putting pen to paper. Or fingers to keypad even. I am here because I want to share my voice. I want to write pieces that captivate your attention, make you feel your own voice and let your own light shine too. Through writing we bring light to things […]
