Should I Get A Pet? 

Growing up, my house was one animal short of being the 21st century’s answer to Noah’s ark. From terrapins to budgies, fish to cats and dogs, and even the occasional earthworm and snail, it’s fair to say that my parents were pretty open to the idea of having their house destroyed by their adorable childrenContinue reading Should I Get A Pet? 

My Love….

My eyes did not widen,  Like heavy husks of tea-soaked bread, I lay idle, unable to move. Submerged in the viscosity of my own tears.  How could you leave me all alone on this planet? After all of these years. They say a heart heals in the hands of time. So why does mine only hurtContinue reading “My Love….”

You Are Unique, No?

Something which has fascinated me for quite some time is this shared feeling many of us have, a feeling of internal friction. A part of us is pulled towards wanting to feel unique and feel like an individual, while the other pushes us to want to fit in and conform.  And so both forces, (asContinue reading “You Are Unique, No?”

Poem – ‘A’ Is For Attraction

Enveloped in an aura of eternal amor. Any armour I adorned, Has been undone, it has been torn.    Most magnetic is the mystery. My mind is mute from misery, As my heart mends from the lover before.   ‘A’ is for attraction, The feeling of acceptance, Of an emotion more alien and more raw.Continue reading “Poem – ‘A’ Is For Attraction”

A Poem About Love

Love. Imaginary, or a force of nature? Like the idea of ‘consciousness’. Are they both just falsehoods, Or truly realities experienced by those favoured?   Love. As comforting as a hot bowl of soup, On a cold frosty evening. In its absence we are all but, Lost souls, floating on rafts destined for sinking.  Continue reading “A Poem About Love”

An Evening Lit By Candlelight

It’s been a hot minute (I hate that term) since I’ve written anything mildly conducive to that of an Individual with half a brain cell.. I don’t know why but lately I’ve found it difficult being organised, finding time to post anything. I’ve found it difficult feeling fulfilled. So much so that I’ve perhaps exchangedContinue reading “An Evening Lit By Candlelight”

Poem: Timeless Beauty

Timeless beauty. What a contradiction. Will you still love me, When my hair loses thickness? When my skin starts to wrinkle? When my youth is but memory in the distance?   Time. It’s bittersweet. Cruel to the appearance. Yet kind to the mind. Stripping away my pride in my looks, To expose an endearment forContinue reading “Poem: Timeless Beauty”

Male Suicide

‘Death of A Salesman’ by Arthur Miller The Young Vic’s adaptation of the 1949 play was simply faultless. So well executed was the storyline that I went home overcome by an aura of melancholy, unshakeable even by watching the funniest of comedies on Netflix. If you are unfamiliar with the play, it happens to beContinue reading “Male Suicide”

Pet Peeves

We all have them, even those amongst us who have the patience of a saint can fall victim to loosing their tranquil facade in the blink of an eye when faced with the the continuous grunts, chews and swallows of the gluttonous pig in row G. Oblivious to the world, they munch their way throughContinue reading “Pet Peeves”

Peanuts To A Monkey

They say religion is used to control the masses when really the truth is that it’s money. We give value to pieces of paper and metal, to invisible numbers forever changing in our online accounts. As humans, as a society, we have given value to something which if you really think about it is valueless.Continue reading “Peanuts To A Monkey”
