When Pay Shuns the way (Short Story)

  She had been in and out of the wards more than most of the staff there, more a part of the block than the hospital bed she lay in. Her medical condition meant hospital had become her home, more so than the property she supposedly lived in. Fatigue was now conquering her fighting spirit,…

When Breath Becomes Air (Recommended Reads)

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi My rating: 4 of 5 stars This book is to be fair closer to an upper range – more a 4.5 than a 4. Yet rather than dwell on the star rating (one of the more difficult elements of goodreads) let it not detract from the fact that…

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…

Gambler (Spoken Word Video)

A short spoken word piece using gambling as an extended metaphor of life with the risks we take and our accountability for our shortcomings.

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…

Addict (Short Story)

You walked to this vicinity in hopelessness. At one of your trajectory lows, substantial woes were colonising your cognition. You had felt defeated, and that every resort you had been to – the doctors, the physicians, the superstitious, the hypnotists, the counsellors – it just wasn’t working out. Guilt was the leech of your virtue,…

As we chose to be (Poem)

Is it all a dream? From foetal beans to rhythmically beating beings.. Bewildering beams…eyes made bespoke for our seeing.. Of us.… are fools, who beat up and look down, frown, begrudge, berate, belittle, besiege.. holding to beef. Beware! Of beady eyed stares their beaks in your business residing beside you, sinking their teeth beneath your…

Glamour (Short Story)

Her stage name personified her reputation – ‘Glamour’. Heralded now by millions, she was idolised by young and old, male and female. An actress that rose to superstar status, now seated in a first class carriage on her way to an awards ceremony, peering outside the glass window as a more ordinary world passed by…

Five minutes (Short story)

From the balcony, he could see the grey area between life and death. Pedestrians, so small and insignificant from where he stood over and watched, scurrying like ants… but they weren’t like ants…far from it. Ants co-operate, ants protect, ants work tirelessly and can see the goals in their sacrifice. Ants don’t, or at least…

Deceptive yesterdays (Poem)

If you run.. only to keep looking over your shoulder you’re more likely to trip. Our present footing is so interloped with our past steps that we forget where we are standing. Though todays realities contain what were only the hopes of yesterdays. It seems the pain injects in ways rapidly into veins of a…
