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”

The Great Indoors

As you down your vitamin D tablets like the sun-loving junkie that you are, perhaps with the other hand you could do something  a little bit more pleasurable (not like that), during these unprecedented times we find ourselves in. Below, from the fluffy fun depths of my mind, I share with you just some ofContinue reading “The Great Indoors”

Too Narrow-visioned

For some of us, life revolves around a career, for others it’s family. But should life really have a sole focus? Is it wrong to lead an existence where we strive for one thing and neglect another? Benefit in one area of our life  to the detriment of another? Need we only look at theContinue reading “Too Narrow-visioned”

The Gym – Satan’s Second Home

Not much of the athletic type, the only way you’ll get me running is in the opposite direction from you if you start going into a long-winded spiel about the weather or how you’re deeply madly in love with your cousin twice removed for that matter. With that being said, I think my wispy bodyContinue reading “The Gym – Satan’s Second Home”

The Wacky Walking Race

Have you ever had a silent race on a footpath with a stranger? Where you both take it turns  to overtake one another. Steadily and surely picking up the pace in a desperate attempt to outmaneuver your opponent. I’ve had this too, but what I haven’t had is an argument with an old lady whoContinue reading “The Wacky Walking Race”

Happy New Year To You, Not I

I hope you’re having a pleasant start to the new year, if not then I hope revelling in my misfortunes will have you grinning from ear to ear like a Cheshire cat.    Having just about set foot inside my grotty London flat on the 1st Jan after a rather heart-palpitation inducing flight from NorthernContinue reading “Happy New Year To You, Not I”

Poem: Winter

  Cheeks flushed crimson, Embers crackle, As the smoke billows beyond the seams of the Oak smoked door.   A faint glow from within the forest, The little cottage. Offering temporary relief, From a permanent frost.   Brave the wind, the rain and the snow. A feat too difficult for now. Yet a necessity forContinue reading “Poem: Winter”

Poem: La Familia

La Familia, Blood’s thicker than water. A ‘V’ for Vendetta, If any were to ‘runneth’ over.   Sibling feuding subsides, Eyes are dried as, The belly of the beast rolls over in submission. Fist fights in a blink of an eye become, Nothing more than a memory of augmented vision.   La Famila, The Family,Continue reading “Poem: La Familia”

I Thought I Was Going Blind

Sitting at my desk in the office yesterday morning, everything was just peachy (or so I thought). Despite my eyelids occasionally closing over due to boredom, for the rare moments I decided to forcefully will them open, I could see as clear as day.   But for some reason or other I decided to winkContinue reading “I Thought I Was Going Blind”

Is It Nice To Be Nice To Others?

Living in a city, living on top of each other, I think it’s easy to get impatient and somewhat claustrophobic. Carrying out my own little experiment in the last couple of months has brought with it some striking revelations.  I wanted to test the waters – does being nice to people make them nicer toContinue reading “Is It Nice To Be Nice To Others?”
