The Valley of Longing

Down your feet take you, Through mud and deep roots. Clinging to branches, As vision dilutes.   You slip and you fall, But you’re ready to see. The future self’s guidance, Deep within thee.   The journey’s sufficient, To make you fulfilled. But right at the bottom, Is quiet and still.   Nothing but clay.... Continue Reading →

Rain

It was a cold miserable morning. The weather’s ice cold winds melted into my bones, yet I hadn’t even left the house. The rain fell all night without any hint of a cozy undertone. The city was crowded with dreamless faces and deathly stares. The shelters were shoulder to shoulder with slow moving pedestrians that... Continue Reading →

Disjointed Desire

Law of nature, And of time. Mine is nothing, In this life. Vision in the season of depletion, Incompletion’s my only foundation Repletion of all but a reason. Strife in man. It's here to stay; I separate… Emancipate... Revealed by desire Of a simple smile No barrier between self and liar. How to discipline this... Continue Reading →

Tinder & the Death of Romance

We live in an age of superficial sexual pleasures. An age where we confuse consequence with cause. Instead of attraction being an organic combination, selection of a partner is now determined by one thing. Looks. The swirling pool of flesh bombards the retinas without any imagination required. Dating is a violent sport. Instead of being... Continue Reading →

Fashionable

It was a mid-morning start, which meant the traffic was a little lighter and the gangs of retirees were taking over the cafes. I pulled up next to a trendy family car - Upper middle class. I couldn’t see the driver. All I could see was the left arm of the passenger. The wrist was... Continue Reading →

He Makes Us Laugh !

The clown’s mask drips down his cheeks, but he has no face paint on. Sitting under a lamp in the corner of a lonely street his mind wanders. The waters rise from his heart to his head, making it impossible to get up and walk home. This man, this, ‘clown’, spends his time exchanging laughter... Continue Reading →

Depth

Empty tunnels echo pain. Beating heart and throbbing veins. Scattered thoughts and shattered soul, Hatred fills the empty hole. Where to turn in this turmoil? Mind in tempest, face in soil. I gave too much and feel too weak, And uttered words I never speak. Without the mind to stay alone, Or the want for... Continue Reading →

Nightmare – The Tree

A dead tree alone in a dessert. Burnt, it’s branches claw at the sky. Slowly, the scene tilts. The sky now below, the dessert above. The tree hangs like a gothic chandelier.

Invisible Pain

Invisible pain is rarely invisible. It comes in the form of slammed doors, raised voices or the sounds of a speeding engine traveling far away. The thought may surface that making logic of emotional hurt is what does the most damage. For if we had no mind, we wouldn’t mind. It’s the process of attempting to... Continue Reading →

The Beach

Ash floats through misty sea breeze, Above infinite sand of memory. And a mother’s son runs along this beach, With the water cold beneath his feet. A revery passage to the other side, A moment’s mortality magnified. They built a castle by ocean spray, Worth more in time when washed away. Beneath, or within, the expanse of... Continue Reading →
