Present is the ache

of the cold between my ribs, not so unlike the ache in my heart as I count the days. Today is day 20. By day 25 I have committed to forgetting. () came and went. As () approached, particularly in the run-up, I had many more things that I did which took a toll on... Continue Reading →

In the light of day

I see that the tree near my home is balding and drying. - Unlike things that have passed and are beyond changing, I can see it. I took a photograph of it. Someday when I have the time I will print a picture of it and stick it on my wall. Though it has none... Continue Reading →

In the dark I thought I saw

that the big tree near my home got cut down. Thankfully, it wasn't. It was just the dark leaves blending into the night sky. I started in shock though, when I first saw what I thought was just the trunk. - Today was the last day of school - it gives me funny mixed feelings,... Continue Reading →

I told a friend I was going to write

Sweet are the ixoras

like candied rose petals dipped in egg white then dried with caster sugar. - In the end, the hug wasn't even a real one after I complained and instead she offered to eat some of my fruit. My little sister asked me for a hug after she went, "Ooh! Chupa-chups! s'thankies." Such is our relationship... Continue Reading →

I questioned myself today

Questioned my own choices and thoughts. Why do I do this and why do I do that, think this way even if it's not constructive and it only promotes a cycle into more thoughts of regret and longing. It's a little silly how you try to comfort yourself and spiral into a pity-party of choices... Continue Reading →
