comfort

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

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.

compassion

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 my compassion.

spring

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.

megaphone

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

trophy

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 volleyball player could be seen.

birth

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 worked for behind. Maybe our birth is our curse.

escape

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 fundamental me.

fences

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.

decorated

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 had been his trade for a whole decade. They often wondered how he could still walk with his head upon his shoulders instead of buried deep in one of his orifices.

leash

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

lease

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.

forgotten

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.

myth

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 in my mind.

leap

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 from me.

wash

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.

smiles

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.

wand

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.

spine

I have finally got the spine to beat the devil at his own game. For months he has pursued me, forcing me to cower in dark shadows, in cold corners. Not anymore. I lured him, slowly drew him in with the promise of good rewards, and before he knew it, I owned him.

bow

He bows his head in dejection and tears roll down his cheeks. This was his only son. As the sound of soil hits the coffin, he slowly turns around and walks away, thrusting his hands deeply into his coat pockets.

rocket

I have had two bosses who could not help but say, “it’s not rocket science” whenever they felt that a task had not gone well, or someone was not performing up to standard. I hate that phrase. Their use of this phrase contributed a great deal to my decision to quit those jobs.

kite

Who wants to fly as a kite? It is overrated to fly so close to the birds. The air might be fresher up there, but imagine such an isolated lifestyle. Watching everything at the bottom of God’s world and wishing you could be on the ground so that you could mix with all the people, feel their warmth and affection. No, I would rather be down here that fly so near the sun and risk getting burnt by the sun.

balloon

Her stomach ballooned and looked like it was going to burst any second. She had it coming to her, after ingesting pesticide the night before in a bid to threaten her cheating husband. This is what her life had come to. Ballooned stomach and threats.

lack

Lack. this is something that has caused a lot of distress among humankind. The lack of courage to stop impunity, to stop the suffering of others. The lack of basic needs. The mere survival ability. The lack of courage to say I want you to be well, and I will take care of you.

wealth

Wealth. What does it mean? Is it the riches he spent his entire life trying to amass? All the land that was never cultivated? The cows that never produced milk because they were so stressed? Is it the large car that caused multiple accidents? Or the wife that killed him because of all these things?

withheld

She withheld the stick, and went a step further. She threw it in the river. He had beaten his wife one too many times and she was no longer going to be party to it. This is what they were told at the mother-in-law forum she attended a week ago. She was determined to change her son.

stride

I stride in one direction. He stops me. He asks me to follow him. I wish I hadn’t. That was my dream I left behind. Now he laughs at me. He knows he has done me wrong. I hope he rots in hell. I hope he loses his dreams too.
