hiraeth: 3AM 

​Twinkling lights, small                                      And bright on the horizon Perhaps stars fallen to Earth, but forgotten. And I, the lone witnessTired and awake at 3AM, My grimy train window is Now a thing of revelation. Fluid lights, they move theyDance, they…

hiraeth: Undress. 

​​Some are warships  With frenzied sails  Canons primed  Harpoons aimed Some are chandeliers  Layered in light  Multi-tiered  Cascades of white Some are bridges Stair after lofty stair  Bridging gaps between Nowhere and anywhere Some are glass  Transparent, fragile  Easily shattered  Hard to come by  Some barely wisps  Undulating terrain  Like memories forgotten  No longer safe  These…

hiraeth: Unravelling. 

​You, me, us  The cosmos Unravelling In your eyesRings of brownShards of whiteA spot of blackMy visionReflected backTo my flittingEyes, so trepidWill you stay Will you vacate The gilded throneOf my heart Will you part Will you cast awayThe anchor Of my weight Has it been heavy Suffocating Blinding light or Blind darknessI’m grasping on Hanging on To anythingYou, me, us The cosmos Unravelling.

muse: Storm

There is a storm inside each of us. Charcoal on paper. (Charcoal from Art Alternatives)

hiraeth: Familiar

Hiraeth is going to be a weekly segment on poetry. Shrivel shrivel shrivel  Goes my poor paper heart  As your silence spreads This is not familiar to me. Drip drip drip  Go acid tears down my cheeks  As your eyes focus far away This is not familiar to me. Knots knots knots  Goes my unprepared…

sonder: Triptych

sonder is a weekly segment featuring random rants or stories (with strong opinions, no offense meant)  Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favour fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate…

tsundoku: Magonia Book Review

This segment is going to be all about books. My love for them is boundless. ❤ Magonia is a beautiful conflict. The story has intricate details, their secrets divulged at the right time, and yet the narrative is sharp and quick and tart. The characters are breathtakingly quirky, the said quirks not being the clichéd…

mistpouffer: Tips for Guitarists

mistpouffer (n): a mysterious sound heard over the ocean in foggy weather. So mistpouffer is going to be a weekly segment dedicated to music, focusing mainly on guitar and vocals, and sometimes piano. I’ve been playing guitar for roughly two years now. I may not be entirely qualified to write this, but I’m going to…

Structure.

I’ve decided I need some structure here. I’m all over the place now, no surprise there. Lifestyles tend to reflect quite well. Hence, this schedule/structure. Hopefully I don’t descend into an existential crisis and ignore any semblance of motivation. I believe I’m a Jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none. If nothing else, it offers versatility, which I’m going to incorporate…

sonder: Apathy.

apathy (n) : lack of interest, enthusiasm, or concern. Is a country truly built upon integrity and communal spirit? Is its peace/productivity a product of the collaboration of its citizens? Or is a country a direct extension of whatever dirty politics its government decides to indulge in? None of the above. Anchoring the ship to…
