priorities

tucked into a corner
back against the wall
watching the sky outside

they’re talking
loud voices at the edge of your attention
meaningless noises that don’t touch you

monster

monster
ugly and crawling
scars across the skin
teeth and claws sunk into
flesh and bone

breaking

You tell him
“you are not a monster”

He looks up at you
with wide eyes and a
parted mouth

There is nothing else you need to say
his face is written
shock, fear and realisation
he is
stunned into silence

You tell him
“you are not a monster”
and like that
he is yours

flour

it’s flour that cakes your fingers
pressed into clumps onto your skin
drifts as dust in the air

horizon

trembling hands crumbling
from clay into dust
a heart beneath the sands
waiting for a new horizon

Pint

keeping the water droplets

crosswalk

Two feet on the pavement,
one step above the crosswalk,
and across is the vision
of you, features highlighted by
bright sunlight;
your own golden glow

leave me breathless,
why don’t you?

delighted

In a dark room,
candles on cakes
I stand in front
center of attention
no crown on my head
but still the focal point
of this party

fasting

My friends fast. I have friends who fast. Once a year, every year. From sunrise to sunset, but I forget. Sometimes I forget – many times I forget. It always makes me feel guilty, for it was important to them and it was not very good to eat or drink in front of them. It was not very nice.

captivate

To point the lens of a camera to the audience that knows you’re there, there are, most times, two distinct reactions. One is to shy away, hide. Those are the camera shy. Two is to smile, attract the attention of the photographer, get you to take their picture. Those are the shameless. That, of course, is an overgeneralisation, but it serves its purpose here.

You see, for they are not playing their part. They must be the captive audience, which they are not. They break the illusion as soon as you point your lens at them, as if they have no role to play, do not know how to fool the seers of a still photo that they are the perfect audience, that the speaker cannot captivate them, be it fault of the speaker or the audience.

unwritten

There is something within me, pressing against my heart and restricting its beats. It sings in a language that I cannot translate, and I am left lost, alone in its call.

polite

I wanted to borrow something.
So I crept.
On tiptoes.
Into your room.

You were asleep.
And I didn’t want to wake you.
So I took.
What I meant to borrow.
And stole.

backlit

I have a photograph of a mountain.

It is backlit. The sky is the brightest blue, and the mountains are dark. It hurts my eyes.

It is my favourite photograph.

raven

The mad dictator cannot see that this boy in front of him is serious.

“You dare not.”

“You do not see what I dare.” The raven-haired boy breathes. His fingers loosen of the neck of the girl he holds.

“You will not,” the mad dictator tries.

“I will,” says the boy, and he smiles.

intent

I do not know
your intent
but no one ever
does, do they?

They will take your lies
because
why would you lie?
to a total stranger
to a close friend
but they
won’t be the ones to bear the consequences anyway

instant

That one instant, where something might have been done, something that might have prevented this, is passed. It is dead and nonexistent. (But how can something be nonexistent when it was there to be dead? How can it exist?) There, of course, is no sound set to go off, no grand, ceremonious, flamboyant announcement from the victor. This is not the kind of thing (most) people rush to study, rush to record, validate, know. In this instant, there is not even your own self contradicting, only your own heart as it attempts to steady itself into silence.

joyous

I peeked, like a child with
wide eyes
looking in at the presents
in another home
in another family
under the nice tree
undisguised glee on my face
so obvious, anyone
would’ve known
like a travesty,
a parody of joy
twisting just so
in my gut
in my innards
spilling down onto
fresh wet snow

Expectations…
I have come to expect them.
Like a physical
(comforting tangible)
weight, or a burden;
sometimes reassuring
in all its familiarity,
other times pressuring,
always against the rib-cage,
restricting breath.

Confined through
chains and shackle,
I think,
through curious lens,
how it might be,
to let go of these
restraints
(social restraints)
that I place
upon myself
and know
what it is like —
to.
think.
myself.

Joyous.

Wrath
dark fiery fire burning
Hiding in the shadows

your raven hair

flee

Do you promise me wonders, gold and all that my heart can ever desire… and more? Do you promise adventure, success and happiness? Can you do that for me? Bring me all that I wish and all that I never thought to wish?

If you cannot, then I shall stay where I am. I am content here, I shall not flee from this place.

decompose

Sifting through
the muted colours
searching for
that silver
of value
as we
decompose

worthless (we are)

fools

Fools, you cannot get it right! You see the world through your lens outdated and continue to live in denial of new advancements and scientific progress and better schedules that would benefit everyone.

Make that change, please. (I’d almost beg.)

(I despise whoever thought it was a good idea to allow you people in power.)

undetected

Undetected is not a word in his vocabulary. If it was not what he saw, then it was simply not. In his mind, he saw all, and if it were not so, then no one shall tell.

We like to keep our secrets after all.

alarming

Alarming, alarming
with red, lights flashing
Alarming, alarming
with loud shrieks sounding

Oh, the alarm goes
Panic in Red
and Vision Black
we all go down
in a dead faint

collage

My art like that of a child
My photographs an amateur’s
My words meaningless

What do I have for a collage
Nothing but the dust and
blank expanse of paper

antithesis

I do not believe in antithesis. I do not believe in complete opposites. I only believe in differences and similarities. And I believe that there is no way I cannot find a similarity between me and you, that is how alike we are.
