In shimmering motions of midnight blue she’d been twirled out ballroom doors and in to corridors , an obvious destination in mind ;she was lustrous . As was he who had eyes of liquid steel , she’d committed the inescapable sin of looking into them and he had set loose a conflagration of passion within … Continue reading Dance with the devil
The rain weeped ; weeped to a point of poignancy , I will forever scorn the universe for taking you away ; I recall praying to any God that would listen to help you ; To save you the despair. And when that did not work i pleaded with my mind to make my heart … Continue reading Without you
The lies you whispered
laying on the sandy grains of the earth with the melodious sounds of the waves in the distance and the rich smell of salt in the air ; i allow my mind to travel to places i have all but banned myself from , that kind of hurt still too potent . i let myself … Continue reading The lies you whispered
It was so hard for so long that everytime she saw your face in crowds or heard your name get spoken it would open wounds so deep she found it hard to breathe .

"Cultivating the mind" By The Thoughtful Beggar Overnight the adorable little sprig of green potential that I had planted from a seed, and nurtured gently, ascended and presented itself to the world, was now a brown mangled mess, and completely unrecognizable. It wasn’t just the three weeks of time that I had put into my … Continue reading Guest post 🤍
Every conscious thought fled as he crossed the remaining distance to gather me in his arms .

Why do I feel the loss of you ?

The darkness didn’t need to
We drove in silence , the kind of silence that's is peaceful and comfortable. You didn't say anything , you didnt need to . You knew that's not what I needed. So we drove . We drove so far that we could no longer see the city lights . I rolled down the passenger side … Continue reading The darkness didn’t need to

A thorned rose ,forced to grow a certain way ..
How can you hate me for my feelings but expect sympathy for yours ? How does it make sense ... Why are you the only one allowed to feel ? What are the rest of us ? How can you hate me for my feelings when I hardly ever express them ? Afraid to be … Continue reading A thorned rose ,forced to grow a certain way ..

Penny for your thoughts?
I sat there staring at the water, the ebbing and flowing of waves , the gentle way it kisses the shore lines and recedes ,almost as if uncertain by its boldness, It's an exceptionally bright day ,the smell of the salt ,the spray on your skin the sun at its centre making the water shimmer … Continue reading Penny for your thoughts?
You’re stronger than you think
Perhaps grief is like battle Your body instincts take over, you harden your insides ,prepare for the agony of a shredded heart. And when it hits . It hurts But not as badly ,because you locked away your weakness and all that is left is anger and strength
Today I saw a puppy and no one stopped , Amidst traffic and blaring horns, shouting scholars and stomping citizens rushing to and fro to get to where they think they are most needed. No one noticed the puppy ,lost and small ,possibly terrified. Has the world lost it's humanity, do we all now just … Continue reading Humanity
