Shallow tears

Her heart breaks, not for the player and his promiscuous ways, but for the homeless lady she sees in the same spot everyday. Her heart bleeds, not for gucci bags or anything else she might wish to keep. But because she heard about families in Grenfell towers burning in their sleep. Her heart weeps notContinue reading “Shallow tears”

Buried alive 

‘Buried alive’  Feelings that had blossomed into something beautiful, thrown back into the undergrowth, like a beam of  light sucked into a black hole. I couldn’t see the picture, you couldn’t play the roll… So we fought what felt right, and turned dawn back into night. We buried our emotions… a thought that has leftContinue reading “Buried alive “

concrete jungle

In this capitalist climate, where you’re only as good as the goods and services you provide, the way you’re taught to market yourself is often mistaken for a personality… When really, we’re all just products of the massive factory our environment has become…put some pretty packaging on, and hope you fit in with the restContinue reading “concrete jungle”

Beautiful Struggle

so much beauty…you would struggle to see, but be left in awe once you saw it… I watched myself profit from my plummet… Encouraged  by contagiously courageous condemnation,  inspired by painstakingly painful perspicacity… What gave me the audacity, to stay, to face it… I had to face it, I could never escape it, through empty glasses,Continue reading “Beautiful Struggle”

Half heartedly in love 

They met in a dream, so real to him, she had made a lasting impression, but never hung around to be recalled at his discretion… One half of his heart she would fill with love, the other with tension. He knew she would either be a life partner or another life lesson Despite his manyContinue reading “Half heartedly in love “

Sinai 

    The preacher begins to speak of peace, as the quire grows quiet. The sermon was yearning to learn, the demons were burning in the urns of those earning.  The spirit however, did not desert the undeserving. Every soul within the temple could feel a tide turning, in a baptism of realism. Manifested true, throughContinue reading “Sinai “

Faded memories 

  Memories faded from the day I swapped hills and valleys for streets and alleys. Time wasted, days played out the same way, summed up at the bottom of a rhum cup  Darkness comes and goes as it pleases. Time may heal all wounds, but I’ve been a patient patient, now I do what IContinue reading “Faded memories “

Hunter 

   They came like ants swarming the school, Guns blazing, voices raised to decibels I could only assume My time was up. Lined against the wall, everyday tasks now twisted Teachers pinned against the black board  Red chalk newly scripted Self fulfilling prophecy eyes now at the back of the head. Some, could no longerContinue reading “Hunter “

Concentric 

  The ‘hows?’ are locked down in the basement, the ‘whys?’ are trapped up in the attic. The truth is often several stories too high, or too low, to be of any use, to us…white lies are just, easier to trust  We strive to see, our perspective rise, with our pasts disguised as now, lookingContinue reading “Concentric “
