Mindless (Short Story)

The space between the ears is but a scrambled noise. An incoherent muddle, a merger of tinnitus, headaches, confusion and voices of uncertainty. Cognition that was once so geared, focused, ambitious – now plagued by ambiguity and the silent chipping away of familiarity. The mind had become a foreigner to the rest of this organism.…

Inside the coffee cup (Short Stories)

Cold. The fresh liquid sheet had formed tan-coloured flakes. The half-filled mocha had barely been sipped since it was ordered an hour ago. Evidently, something was playing up on the young gentleman’s mind. ‘Is everything okay sir?’ The waitress politely asked with a warm smile, looking into his solemn eyes. Temporarily, he was brought back…

The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying Up (Recommended Reads)

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondō My rating: 4 of 5 stars Now here was a book I had a hard time rating.

Keep on Running (Spoken word video)

Sooo one of the stupider things I did was delete my Facebook. Well, all in all I don’t regret it – but it was generating more traffic to my blog and youtube channel than any of my other means. I’m not a fan of self-promo but hey ho. I wrote a poem earlier this year…

Active passivists and passive activists (Blog post)

Most of this blog site is dedicated to poetry. One such reason is self-explanatory –  it’s an enjoyment of mine, a subjective writing where the subject matter is often less subject to criticism in its expression: creative writing can perhaps get away with more because it is perceived and can metaphorically pass as more subliminal,…

Don't tell me that I can't (Poem)

Tell me it’s improbable, Pummel me with statistics of chance, Convince me that my ways are illogical, That these dreams are but a farce, But don’t tell me, that I can’t.   Preach what no ones previously accomplished, Wished, but never carved the stone, Take me as a fool rather than accomplice, And dictate that…

The tragedy of our state of humanity (Blog post)

I like to start, as I do with any piece by Gods grace, to apologise in advance for any ignorance in my narratives, as they are opinions based on observations. Another tragic event takes place, prompting similar reactions from around the country. Similar frustrations and shifts of attitudes, in what seems an all-too-familiar and vicious…

What could otherwise be (Poem)

Now monuments, once moments of euphoric majesty, Momentum gained, and we lost much in its speed, Prosperity of progenies, and potential prodigies, Whisked away, from fruitful forests to tumbleweeds.   I have written of regrets and how they mustn’t erode us, Yet my pen testifies to a hypocrite’s mind – plagued. I’d throw the ring…

Long Shot (Short poem)

Oft I’ve shot myself in the foot Gunpowder residue; burning ingratitude Now this single leg that’s bullet-free is favoured more than were both two.      

Old with a new name. (Poem)

New year, new ways, New look, new shave, New book, from a new page, New clothes, to a new place New ventures, new mates, New dentures, new face, Yet new now, feels the same New is old, with a new name Seconds form minutes, Hours form days, Days grow to years, So no seconds to…
