Child Soldier


I watched the fireworks, entranced Not by the way the lights danced In the black night skies Like multicoloured fireflies   No, the chemical fireflies No matter how much I tried Struck me once as pretty Then at once as ugly   And stayed that way in my memory   I know people heard cheers […]

Musings of a Broken Heart


They tell me my brokenness is ephemeral That all the tears I shed are an expression of deprecating myself for your love I enervated myself replaying your unfinished answers to my questions in my head Hoping, praying That you loved me even for a heartbeat.

Agoraphobia-A fear of entering new or unfamiliar situations   How can I fix it, you ask. I am scared to tell you you can’t: it has gone beyond the point it can be repaired or fixed; it can only be healed, if at all. The ache in my heart coincides with a smile on your […]

Parallel Lives and Cultures


Sometime ago I read this piece of work by a Russian girl, Serafima Fedorova. I was really inspired by her writing and I realised what it really means to be a good writer. I really wanted to share her work with you because I know that her candour and expression really touched me. She has […]

I see my thoughts maturing, developing as I pocket new experiences and see more of the world. By world […]
