Rachel tossed the wet tissue into a bin, having dabbed herContinue reading “The Escapade”
I was the gold you once wore Just to melt me in a crucible A speck of dust on your rusted heart I thought it was just enough But the night erased the day Into the blankness in your face My hurt wasn’t reflected there The mirror had long since cracked Into figments of myContinue reading “Gold”
Everything is dotted with a whirl of colour bursts like blooming flowers. At least that’s what I think it is when suddenly someone switches it all off. I scramble to my feet and blink rapidly, trying to catch a shadow for clues. But all I see is the dark, the swirly nothingness of the dark.Continue reading “The sights”
The clouds glisten like water as the sun sinks into it. It strikes me how small it looks, like an orange ink blot in the sky. The other colours- the rosy pink blush, bright blue and the soft lavender look like smudged streaks of paint. God is a good artist. Excellent, even. And very speedyContinue reading “The evening”

It was believed to have been a cosmic curseContinue reading “The eternal night”
Memories upending over my soulBurning like acid as they touch the floorBlinking away like camera flashes While capturing my heart’s core Held prisoner in a wave of sadnessAs moments flow and caressThe shore of eternity Only to fade and flee Vanishing into an abyssReturning to taunt with a glimpseGrasping emotions in a blink of an eyeStranding millionsContinue reading “Memories”
‘Twas the night before Christmas. Snow wafted from above, like raining clouds and floated down to the city, dripping off the fine glittery buildings.
