    anger, grief, pain, suffering. joy, love, sharing. him. wonder, children, milk, loss. migration. work. life. ecstasy.

  • Today, comfort is what lies at the bottom of a litre of vanilla ice-cream. Weight is the demon that will taunt me tomorrow.

  • Mutual understanding, mutual respect they said. This was a requirement to ensure that life would be smooth for all the people working in the company. Nobody said anything about mutual admiration. And no one said it would be a prerequisite.

  • If you listened carefully, you would hear the sound of my heart. You would know that every difficult step that you have taken, I have been by your side, listening to your fears and praying that you get to your destination. And when you sat down and cried in desperation, I hoped you would feel […]

  • That day, she had a spring in her step. The past and the present had conspired to provide her with a clear view of what the future could look like. That was, until she saw him standing across the street.

  • What is a megaphone?
    I have absolutely no idea.
    Just proves to me,
    There is still so much to learn.

  • I had just moved into a new flat. I struggled with the cartons all day, lugging them behind me until I got to the fifth floor. The sun was setting by the time I got down to unpack. I was feeling dejected, then I saw the small trophy. Old, but still the picture of a […]

  • They say that we should be grateful for our birth. I don’t know about that. Some mornings, I wake up and I feel like curling up on my bed till I die. That is what will eventually happen anyway. So why do I have to toil and toil only to die and leave everything I […]

  • Evesreflections commented on the post, escape 9 years ago

    I thought that I would escape myself. I reflected too long on the past, hoping to find the solution to the way life had been. Then one day I opened my eyes to today, and realized I could not escape myself. I would rather make the same mistakes hundreds of times instead of changing the […]

  • Evesreflections commented on the post, fences 9 years ago

    I try to mend fences. I will try even this time. I do not like to live in this world, knowing that you and I have a big gaping distance between us. No matter what happens, I’d like to know that I, at least, can count on a smile from you. I’ll mend the fence.

  • Evesreflections commented on the post, decorated 9 years ago

    He was a decorated soldier. Wearing his medals proudly upon his breast, he would strut around the village like a vain peacock. Everyone who saw him had to suppress their contemptuous smirks. They knew only too well how he had come by his medals. Raping women and children, pillaging and all other manner of evil […]

    Leash? What does that mean? Tying people down? Confining things and preventing them from reaching their potential? What is so great about that word?

  • Evesreflections commented on the post, lease 9 years, 1 month ago

    We all need a new lease of life. A time of new beginnings when we can put the errors of our pasts behind us and believe that everything is going to be better. That everything will change, and that we shall all be good and happy.That is hope.

  • I feel forgotten sometimes. Since I moved to this seaside town, I have lost contact with the rest of the world. My world. I can’t seem to find anything pleasing in this paradise, in which everything is rotten beneath the apparent splendor.

  • Evesreflections commented on the post, myth 9 years, 1 month ago

    Is a myth still a myth when you realize that it has always been a myth but you refuse to acknowledge the truth staring you in the face? Is it okay to keep lying to yourself about what you obviously know does not exist? i wonder. The myth will not be shattered. It lives on […]

  • Evesreflections commented on the post, leap 9 years, 2 months ago

    I am going to try and take a leap of faith with you. I know it’s idiotic to think that you will be different this time. All indications are that am up for more disappointments. Nobody can change that quickly. But I fear that if I lose my faith, you’ll have taken my humanity away […]

  • Evesreflections commented on the post, wash 9 years, 2 months ago

    Wash. Wash dirty linen in public. As in, share all your dirty little secrets. Your fights. Your fantasies and how you act them out. All the sins you’ve committed in the last one week. or day. Wash your linen in public.

  • The three smiles of my Evils: Evil has an affected smile. I don’t like it. Evilmore has a smile that is always ready to come bursting to the surface. Evilmost has an unexpected smile. One that surprises me whenever I see it.

    I wave my magic wand. And the miracle happens. All the sadness is gone, replaced by a joyful happiness that makes me feel like I just turned into a butterfly. From caterpillar to butterfly. That is the feeling of the week.
