Perfecting the Art of Imperfection

Jan 1 2020. Take me on.

It’s a new year and although I spent most of the transition from 2019 to 2020 with family, I spent the rest alone. After facing the reality of losing two beloved ones within the last 6 months of last year, I felt an imbalance within me. I just felt like I needed to get away.…

Dear Hay Fever (Artwork)

Dear Hayfever, I have lived through life without ever having to meet you. So why have you suddenly gained the audacity to walk up to my door and tell me you’d like to be friends with me?! Although your presence is not so severe, I still don’t appreciate you. I’d like to politely say, “f*ck…

Igniting Delirium

A puff to blow the worries away. A sip of giggles to help waste the night away. Have another puff, then repeat. The night had started early; so we roll another, pop-off some caps and repeat.  As the air filled with smoke, I noticed my body and my mind finally feel at ease after the…

A White Dove

As she talked to me Her eyes started to tear. And at times the words of her voice were unclear. My mind floated to dream of heaven, I chose not to hear. The things I did, I apologise, so sincere. I grabbed her hair from ear to ear, We kissed ever so violently, I thank…

The Plight of Flight

The clouds, they glisten in the light. The engines roar, I listen, as they boast their might. Voices, they whisper, echo through the chamber of fright. While demons quiver and shiver in cold delight. The air grows stale, chilled, by the frosty night. Yet somehow I’m thrilled by this dreadful and eerie sight. The faces…

Sin Cities

To sit here alone and wonder Of all the times that are no longer. Amidst the strangers who never ponder, The somber satisfaction of sin for which we all hunger. To sit here alone and wonder of time, More over, Of all wickedness yet to come, coming closer and closer. Many are done with no…

Untitled (Awake)

I awake. Although it is silent, This was no escape. There’s a lingering sadness within my chest An everlasting torment to keep me from rest. And at best, I lie towards the heavens to guide me away from what I detest. My mind’s spiraling, Down into an abyss of the unknown. Yet somehow My mind…
