Together Apart

2020 could be considered the year of the introvert. My world went quiet once the doom and gloom from the social media news feeds and television broadcasts were, by choice, turned off. I observed the panic amongst the extroverts. Their life was about to be shutdown and shut out. To them, it felt like what seemed to be the end …

Temporary

I try to imagine the passion Of our next encounter when it happens It’s really got me thinking about the night’s we’ve gone drinking Drove the city and ended kissing in your kitchen But it’s been a week now And I’m trying to figure out how How to get you back into my bed quicker somehow I know, you know, …

Urban

This city is all just noise I will drown it out The lights are blinding my eyes This person I’m being is a disguise This feeling I’m feeling I know the reason Take me back to the country Return myself to me Leave this place for a while Remember who I am I’ll be back one day soon After I …

What If

What if we just let go of our fears, What if we didn’t overthink our ideas, What if we enjoyed the moment of now, What if we could just let go somehow. What if there’s more than what we see, What if our lives were filled with possibility, What if we forget the counting of time, What if we knew …

Consumption & Consumerism

Living the (Australian) Dream could be considered the way to live your life as a success.  Having ownership of your own home displays an expression of security that you’ve finally “made it”. However, I have never been drawn to a life filled with inconceivable debt. Studies have shown that we live in houses that are too big. We probably use …

Summer Rain

It’s just an ordinary Wednesday. At least I thought so. Everyone says their goodbyes and leaves the crowded table to head home for the night. Now it’s just me and him. In this moment the scenarios and possibilities run wildly through my mind. None of which will come to fruition. It was announced to me some months ago, by a …

Over the Rainbow

I lived in Toronto, Canada for almost a year. I arrived in the summertime of 2018. I’ve seen and felt the seasons in full circle. The sunshine and fun of summer, the coloured leaves of fall, the purity of snow in winter and the beautiful bounce back of spring. In a place where the four seasons are prominent it’s noticeable …

Lock Down
The Blurb

Look forward to Lockdown

Whilst the COVID-19 lockdown is a consideration just around the corner, my mind has already been racing with ideas on how to fill in the time. For me, three to four weeks in isolation at my apartment sounds like a holiday, not a prison sentence. As an introvert, I am secretly looking forward to the announcement. And not completely for …

Love Story

Oh girl, don’t be sad!Remember all the devine times that you had,When you said, “I love you” and it was returned,This is the love story that you’ve always yearned. Your hair was so much shorter back then,It’s grown, as have you, my beautiful friend;Keep remembering those intimate nights,and how they seemed to fit so perfectly right. You were blessed with …

The Other Side of the World

Part of me was running away. I needed to be far away from what I have always known. I wanted to be on my own. The other part was fulfilling childhood dreams and curiosities. This was the reason for moving to the other side of the world. The process to move to Canada took six months. I had to save …

After the Rain

The words ‘after the rain’ typically means that once an event is over there is a sense or feeling of new, fresh and clean. However, I am still feeling awash. How much rain is it going to take? In the days and month’s leading up to my mother’s death, it could have rained every single day and I wouldn’t have …

Colourful Cuba

I am not entirely sure what my attraction to Cuba has been for all these years. Perhaps it was the idea of not being able to get into USA if you had a Cuban immigration stamp. Maybe it was the photographs of classic cars and the colourful buildings or the beautiful white sand beaches with translucent waters. Now having been …

Untwist

Never have you lived a dull life;You’ve felt the depths of darkness;You’ve sat beneath the sunniest of skies;You’ve seen the angelical glow that glimmers ahead without quite catching the light;Constantly trying to untwist your over-analytical mind;Be patient;Your time will come. bgadke77 ♥ Photo by Kinga Cichewicz on Unsplash
