on editing a blank page

I tried to edit a blank page once, because a renowned author claimed it could not be done. Turns out, she was wrong. Have you ever looked up at the clouds and seen the colours they carry? If you haven’t, look up. If you have, you’ll know they’re not white; rather, they are blue, grey, … Continue reading

I was a fairy

When I was small, I was a fairy; Then I grew up, into a power ranger. When he was small, he was unavailable; Then he grew up, or maybe he didn’t. He sees a calm creek; I feel an avalanche. We hide behind who we are; It’s what keeps us as we are. – Where … Continue reading

Untitled

A sad garden, A shy sunlight, A fearful memory, A loaded vision. A lost lamb, A scared tourist, A broken car, A hopeless mission.

A Siren Cries

I cannot look, Not too much; People’s eyes are what make you Fall for them; Every glance has a beauty, Each moment involving us turns Into a soul-stirring shudder, Even when not shared; Haven’t you been told How sharing is caring; Haven’t you ever heard The cry of a siren; A hopeful desperation, A loving … Continue reading

The Runaways

I want to show him places, The places that I could call mine; There is the river in my heart, We could keep our beer cool there; There is the house to marvel at, Or we could just sleep in its yard; There is the skyline he should feel, After which the sand of its … Continue reading

Tea

You say you’re poison, but you taste like sugar. You say one plus one isn’t always two, in the middle of the road. You say you see the end, but how do you know whether that star is already dead? You say why we’re wasted on the earth, in the middle of the road. You … Continue reading

Dark Side of the Moon

We are not the glistening on the water; We are the dust you just cannot reach; The ignorant bliss crawling throught the cat door; Life’s invisible shadow wishing it were made of stardust; We are not birthed by the moon; We are purged by the corners its light would not reach.

I see him

I see him in a window, From a piece of Christmas decoration; Through some leaves and branches, Within the flicker of a newly broken light. Before you left, I left, We left,- Before we ever met. I see him on my pillow, And in the picture in my wallet; Between the pages of my notebook, … Continue reading

My Loneliness, Her Loneliness

She is so lonely. I am so lonely. Look at us, sitting in loneliness, next to each other. I run from it, hide from it. My loneliness, her loneliness. But they catch up and find me, in meaningless banter, between the lines, in silence. She cannot comfort me and she is inconsolable. What do you … Continue reading
