Dear God; dear Universe; dear Paradoxical Exigence of the Mind, I awake to the quarantine of the rain, spraying me like an infected bloom; my inner voice trying to cleanse me of the consternation that has clouded my internal skies for some time now; sparking storms and raging waves that crash against your distant shores. […]
How can I create if my house is not in order, If the inspiration I choose renders me numb, Stops my lips from forming the words I need to speak, So that I might reap the benefits of that love? Why should I come back, To paths well worn, And scenes remembered with retinal insistence […]
The problem with not recognising that we are solely responsible for our own happiness is that we spend nearly all of our time looking to blame someone else for the way we feel. We credit others with the power to either lift us up, or bring us down, when that job is ours, and ours […]
Of Fathers and Daughters, and Mother’s of Children.
How often do you give others your full attention? How often do you feel others give you theirs? To feel valued and accepted, and for others to feel that you value and accept them, your full attention is important. This is what I realised today. This is what hit me with the full force of […]
What have I got to complain about? I have a roof over my head, Food on my table, Change in my pocket, A man who loves me, And three wonderful children. My life is perfect. “Carriage seven of eight…” Next station: Somewhere Else. Even the Borg Lady in all her Computerised wisdom knows That […]

4=2M to the power of 100
Four months is too damned long; I can barely wait another day. Don’t persecute me for my impatience, For I’ve already waited What seems like an eternity, Plus four months. I dreamt of you last night, Vivid and clear and full of reality. I remembered thinking that time had sped past, That finally you were […]
I am not black. I am the wrong shade of white. I speak with no accent, Yet people shout at me, To help clarify their words. My hair is too dark, My nose is too hooked. I am too female, So my mind must be faulty. I am too small, too short, too young, […]
