Prologue: My Uncompleted Novel, unnamed

I awake to the sound of water. Trickling quietly, as if humming a melody of its own accord. Strangely, it is a melody I recognize, which I dig out from the far recesses of my memory, from the banks of my previous life. I think I have lived here a number of years. But I […]

White Sandy Beach

I am of creative insanity The brain uses everything in finding From derelict moods to fluidity From courteous pieces of sashaying Coming down the side of simplicity I am complete, unhurried, at ease To find me moving, gracefully into your way And the dreaded arms of peace Flying through repressed sexual releases Intense exhilaration, crash […]

Dance

Dance on a metaphor In the bass of the moon Complete mercenary, you are the cherub of my heart. The pentagram lies within a circle The crucification of your own thoughts Are infirmities and contradictions.

The Man Who Sat Beside Me

Non-descript, finely dressed The man who sat beside me pressed Lingered to the very depths And drove my craziness to shreds. A tiny “ping” All furious trickling Spinning round into my head Like I have arisen from the dead. A gentle plucking at my heart The Cupid’s arrow stings my eyes Breaks my cries and […]

Reflections: My Father

My father- I don’t even know how to begin, except that I owe my existence to him. He is, besides my daughter and husband, the love of my life, and not in that sick, crappy, Electra complex kind of way: he gives me the love that only a father of his calibre can and I […]

Why do people get tattoos if they hurt?

Because a tattoo, like your name, is capable of defining who you are. You may have wanted to get a tattoo for the wrong reasons: every one of your girlfriends were having rose tattoos carved onto their bums and it would’ve been fun to get it done, too, or your then-boyfriend demanded your show of […]

The Secret Writer: Me

As a child, I remember eagerly waving my hand in the air when an English teacher asked my class, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” She picked me and I stood up in my place, grinning from ear to ear. “I want to be a writer“. It has been at least […]

So here I am…

At the suggestion of my dear friend, SL, I decided to start this blog (Goodness knows I already have too many, and can barely keep up with them), dedicated almost purely to my writings and works. I say purely, because I think it’d be kind of boring to read only my writings/works and if I […]
