Firm or lined, or just sallow, that weird shade of yellow, Bruised from the workouts or battered and broken from your handouts, Patchy, shaded, hairy or tanned enough to never detan, Red, brown, black, pimpled, acned, wrinkled, or just glowing from the baby inside. Looking them down, All my life I’ve lived proud, In aContinue reading “Skin.”


  She trudged along the gravelled path, Far from home, lost in the rush of the world, Her boots worn, her back stooped, The winds, cold and brazen, cut across, The skin on her face drooped.   Her eyes stung with tears, That refused to fall out, She shut them close, Wanting to push theContinue reading “Boots.”

Alone, not lonely.

He wanted to soar, To places that were beyond, The reach of others, The fancies of their minds, The places no one went to, Because they would be alone, And that is what he wanted, To be alone, not lonely, Invisible, not blind, Peaceful, not wanting. He couldn’t explain, Words failed him, But the feelingContinue reading “Alone, not lonely.”


From the distant lands, Galloping on his horse, Came the knight of her dreams, Dusty and tired, A freshness in the soul, Heart bewitched, smile dazzling. Months ago, when they had first met, A city damsel, she was no match for him, A guard of the royals, Splendor befitted him, royalty trusted him, She aContinue reading “Rescued.”

The Caged Freedom.

Staring at the vast blue skies, I sit, My wings never even opening, The clouds call me out towards, To frolick around in the vapours, I sigh. I wish I was the gazelle, Leaping about free and unbound, Instead I am the caged bird of paradise, To be lavished upon with praises, children and parents’Continue reading “The Caged Freedom.”

Black and White.

Some say the world is black and white. Some say the world is grey. Which is the truth? Which a perspective? Or is truth itself just a perspective?   To him the world was white and black, The greys he’d announced as sins, To empathise with others he’d given up, Sympathies he wanted abound. HeContinue reading “Black and White.”

The horror of it.

He stared into nothingness, Loving the light more than the dark, Heaving breaths and sweltering palms, He rubbed his back against the bark. He saw headlights approaching, Out came he – dressed as a towering bear, All he wanted was money, The realtors wanted the fear. Graciously Yours!  

Abounding Passions.

Abounding Passions. You made me write when I lost the touch, You made me smile when my mind was thinking too much, You brought me closer to the real me, You made dark the new sexy! Your soft touch paled my pain, You were my rainbow in the rain, We moved away with the time due,Continue reading “Abounding Passions.”


Desires? The rumbling trucks roared along, The silence of the night drowning it out. The bodies moved in closer together, The warmth betwixt they didn’t want to lose out.   The eldest had just laid her head down, When the youngest started bawling again. As the cries started waking everyone around, They looked down uponContinue reading “Desires?”
