Why I Didn’t Give You A Card This Year

To me a card is something someone gives to another to signify an occasion, A gift of thought that says ‘I’m with you today’; a sort of demonstration; A fixed conversation in which you show your appreciation almost under cultural obligation. To give you a card at times when I find you in my heart … Continue reading

The Struggle is Invisible

‘No-one seems to understand’ You say while tracing the lines on the palm of your hand. ‘No-one gets to see the pain, That plagues me every single day’ The struggle is invisible, It goes beyond anything you could class as clinical, It’s like staring down the barrel of a gun and wondering ‘is this fixable’. … Continue reading

Blurred discussion of My Lifes Purpose

You say you had never dreamt before me, Yet before you I believed life was nothing more than a soliloquy; That life was just a trail of unspoken feelings, And voicing my own thoughts seemed to leave others reeling. I was stuck in a space between happiness, And the self worth I hung upon others … Continue reading

It’s The Same

It’s the same A rehearsal of pain, A misinterpretation leads to a projection of shame. It’s like you weave in and out of feelings, Not sure whether God or the Devil is the most appealing. As if everything you love turns into a weakness, And your eyes cast across a battlefield thinking ‘I can beat … Continue reading

Yet failure teaches us to learn from the process, so that if we are ever faced with similar hardships we are better prepared. There seems to be … Continue reading

When you decide to break through the surface, The light you see will be me. Progression … Continue reading

All That We Can Share

The connections that we weave between ourselves and others can never be broken; they may twist and warp with distance and time, however we remain forever tied to those we have interacted on any level with. It does not matter if that interaction was a simple smile or an intimate conversation. We carry fragments of … Continue reading

The Mirrors of a Deeper Cosmos

There is an invasive side to human nature, a side which can be seen as a forcing of your principles onto another; yet it could also be construed as a person misunderstanding the intention of love. It seems to be crafted into our human makeup to pass judgement upon another if they do not act … Continue reading

Spiritual Journey

Through Lens of Our Universe

I think at some point in all our lives we have had to traipse through the fire of our own psyche, avoiding the flickering flames which lash out at us; these flames having been born through self-creating cycles of unhealthy thoughts. Once we’ve walked through the heat, watching the flames grow fiercer and fiercer we … Continue reading

Prose: Passing into the Abyss {testing excerpts}

So I’m thinking of writing a book based upon the concept of death and the mysteries and experiences that surround it. Using the foundation of my philosophical writings I am trying to depict the journey of a man who passes over. Here’s what I have so far: (criticisms, advice and comments would be much appreciated) … Continue reading
