It’s the Morning After Dark

The sun has set, the shades are drawn and the screen of my display emanates blue-screen rays to keep me awake. Eyes pinned open like butterfly wings. It's almost June, but it feels like forever since I've set foot beyond the four corners of work, home, store, and gas station. Shrinking my world to a... Continue Reading →

Last Saturday

"So, I read this and thought it was about a relationship," he said, glancing up at me from the pages of my lengthy poem. I stared back with growing horror. Relationship? I flashed to the moment of penning the words, reviewing in my mind the emotions that birthed those lines as he continued. "Yeah, the... Continue Reading →

Anticipation tastes like sugar-high

There is this ache, a flame, a flash, an expectation for something different, something spectacular.

And answering "I dunno" doesn't always feel so inspirational. I was walking down the sidewalk this week towards work when I passed this... Continue Reading →

"Too many choices! How do I know the right one to pick?" Yet another thing school didn't prep me... Continue Reading →

Another Saturday: Conversation Snippets

"What?" snapped the frazzled marketer. "I said, I'm not Hindu." The smile slipped slowly off my face. Saturdays have become a wonderful hideaway representing freedom... Continue Reading →

Yesterday was Poetry Workshop day Poetry Workshop Day What better way to know if I am actually good at poetry or not? I asked myself, clicking... Continue Reading →

It’s Time to Behold

"So, can I drive like this?" I asked, speaking to the blurry receptionist as I blindly scribbled my signature on the receipt. "Sure, you should be fine!" she replied chirpily. Leaning down, the brunette reached into a box and pulled out a roll of... what is that? "Here, just put these on behind your glasses... Continue Reading →

Live Life Now*

*Written while listening to ScHoolboy Q's song "Studio". If you haven't heard it, the beat is wicked. So... the month has been mad. I managed to get older, hit an anniversary, earned some trust, lost a pint of tears, got sick for the first time in several years and learned a little something about accuracy.... Continue Reading →
