Jan 5 | The Elevator

“Delightful stuff”, she said without emotion, savouring the melting chocolate in her mouth. Reaching over the low table, she picked another piece from the box that lay open before her, the chocolate nestled among the golden wrapping like brown jewels. She shifted her eyes to the window, seeing the city skyline becoming darker by the […]

Nov 25 | Caught in Winter’s Breath

I guess after so many days of not updating I guess I owe something to this ragged diary of mine, and while my moments of inspiration are few, at least I can be sure that my boring moments in class can be used for something better… (Here’s one of the few poems that I worked […]

Oct 27 | Behind Bars

He waited. It had been 18 long and interminable years he had spent within the enclave he had come to call home. The room in the Penitentiary was gray, humid and squalid , the walls undecorated except for the lone poster that hung on the wall. There was no lightbulb. The endless hours he had […]

Sep 25 | Romance Inspired

A poem dedicated to the girl who’s inspired me more than anyone.. (The second poem is a free-verse poem; both shall go untitled) A heart alone I used to be Silent and lost in a dismal sea But a flower sprung from your hands Come green grass on the unforgiving sands Daylight you sang into […]

May 22 | Chinatown

A ruffle and a scuffle as shelves are stacked high With instant noodles and dried pickle sauce Wonder Tea and Best Quality dumplings The women scrutinising the nutrition label As though they were some jeweler looking At diamonds through horn-rimmed glasses “Pah-don” as the men push the crates along Rumbling on the littered floor with […]

May 13 | The Wind

The unharried wind whispers in my ear Let yourself see the unseen tear The shadowed being hidden among All the masses, a note within a song Listen to the breath of the sigh Of a troubled mind; low betwixt high The wind bemoans the senseless part Of emotions from one spirit and heart Let yourself […]
