Fragments of a Soul
In pursuit of a better life
I refused to delineate boundaries
No bubble to protect my very essence from being frayed
My soul begins to rupture
Ever so slightly at first but slowly
I start to lose me at my very core
No longer recognising my own reflection
Surrounded by hyenas ready to snuff out my
goodness at a moments notice
My laughs grow more quiet
The light in my ...

Death on the highway!
Death is so jarring, though we are cognizant of it’s looming presence, when faced with it, we cocoon our very beings in a state of stillness…
As a creature of habit, I embarked on a morning walk, silently welcoming the beginning of spring. The wind caressed my face ever so softly with the sun making an inconsistent appearance.
Ruminating over things past and present!
I walked gallantly, ...

Words from poet's past flow through me
their stories live on through reverberating echoes.
Tales as old as time bouncing off pages into reader's
minds, then from their lips
not into god's ears but into mine.
Things fall apart by Chinua Achebe
a literary goldmine waiting to be explored.
Writers weaving together linguistic
art, masterpieces so intricately

Pictures are simply moments frozen in time!
They make it possible for us to travel through time.
Our own personal time machine but we can only catch a glimpse of the past, they have no way of telling us what the future may hold.
Relics of time and space, intergalactic instruments if you will, that propel us from one reality to the next.
I wonder what stories all these pictures would tell ...

Little things that remind me of home
They take me back to where I’ve been
Also where I’d like to go
I think about the gold necklace that I wore on my 31st
Or the gifted pink bracelet with my name carved in rose gold
Some I have lost and others I have yet to find
But one things for sure, I know you were and will be all mine!

The winter frost calls
As memories of spring fade,
Autumn breeze beckons

Skin and Bones
Dust to dust
ashes to ashes will shall all return
with our regrets,
sins and wins erased from mother nature
our spirits effervesce into carbon
but fear not as energy cannot be destroyed only transferred
our lives once lived tangibly in a conrete jungle
has now been washed away with a faint petrichor lingering in the air!

Loving you feels like a thorn pricking my heart
a once whole vessel now bleeds with every beat
The melancholic drip serves as the anthem of our story
Our journey has no true resolution
We must ultimately deal with the cards we’ve been dealt
I can’t help but think
Maybe in another life!

Looked in the mirror shortly after i rose
Not quite sure i like what i see
A little bit of this, a touch of that and
Maybe i'll start to feel like me
Maybe i'll start to feel a little bit of glee
or maybe that's just me taking a leap
I need to get out from under this heap
I need to free myself before tears start to seep
Then they'll all start to say, girl please!
Get a grip
or you are b...

Birds of a feather flock together
Sitting in my stillness whilst the outside world continues to move in it's very own ebb and flow.
Sunday 5th February 2023 3:54 am
I've been broken for as long as i can remember,
welding together the fragmented pieces of my life will be quite the journey!

Melting into your being means aligning with your highest self, still lost in a fog hoping to ascend!

An ode to my dear departed father
Even though we were oceans apart
I know you carried me in your heart
As I carried you in mine
Here’s to you Dad
Rest easy “Bob do good”

An Ode to Grandmama
My fondest memories were when you would take us to the Saturday market on a cold crisp winter morning. You had this knack for making the most mundane of tasks seem like so much fun. I remember you would always buy tangerines, plums,pears and apples. It was always red apples. You were warm when you needed to be and strict when the situation called for it.
I will never forget when me and dupe st...

Men Like Trees Walking
Are men like trees walking?
Hair blowing through the wind like leaves talking
Often shrieking down the street like birds hawking
They certainly can’t do without gawking
Things of a worldly nature draw them in, so they come flocking
Never quite sure what life may bring, so they keep ducking
Bag full of tricks yet they’re still lurking
Watch your back, before they come stal...

They cut off part of your being
A part you were seeing
A life you were living
Living, maybe just existing
In the wind, twisting
Tired of fixing
People trying to get their tricks in
Tricks in? Truly they’re Just itching
Itching to get their fix in
guess it’s time to get your kicks on
Get gone, show them you’re not the one to be picked on!

The cold winter air whistles melodically
A gentle breeze sneaks past my fingers
Memories of autumn spring forth
So close yet so far away
Teddy coat wearers scattered across the London fog
AirPods in, walking briskly
Listening to my favourite tunes
Not trying to blend in
Just learning to be
Realising that happiness is free
Saturday 21st January 2023 9:22 pm
Perpetually living in a space and time between now and wanderlust!
Saturday 21st January 2023 9:20 pm
Our energies intertwined
patiently waiting for that moment of ascension
When our two souls merge into one
An attraction that’s beyond the physical
Your very essence entices me
The goodness within you knows no bounds
Your heart drips liquid gold
Encased in a rich chocolate package
Only time will tell if the symmetry of your heart matches mine perfectly!

Two minds, souls and spirits connect to become one
Both energies Intertwined to give off a synergistic frequency into the ether
Two hearts beating to the same drum
Speak it into existence and he/she shall be drawn to you
Like two magnets finding their centre
At times the pull might not be perfectly aligned but in the end you will always find your way back to each other....

I might just be a tiny speck In this vast universe but everyday I leave a little part of myself behind in the ether so I exist in a linear space that can only be accessed through my mind.
Friday 21st May 2021 7:47 pm
Oh time! how you pass me by
Tick Tocking away by the day
The years fly past even as we lay
But not much we can say
Tick Tocking away as mama begins to shout
Tick Tocking away as things start to pan out
Tick Tocking away as the hourglass runs out
Some despise your perceived cruelty
or could it be a timeless beauty?
Others delight at your ability to heal what we ...

Life without Love
Love without Life
A Vessel without A Heartbeat
A Heartbeat without A Vessel
The Sun without The Moon
The Moon without The Sun
The Sky without The Clouds
The Clouds without The Sky
The Night without The Stars
The Stars without the Night
Me without You
You Without Me
Nothing at all!

Some things have to wilt to let others blossom
Often moving so fast you can't even fathom
I can feel it coming
I see that things are looming
Let's just say, everything is booming
The ground beneath me is starting to shake
I can feel my soul starting to quake
I need it to wash my troubles away like water flowing from a lake
I don't quite know how long it will take
But i d...

Karma has come knocking at your door
Though you can't hear her whisper nor her roar
she proceeds to enter whether invited in or not
She might take you for everything you have got
She unleashes her beautiful chaos
Without making a single sound, never leaving a trail behind
What goes around
So be aware, stay fair and take care
Tuesday 21st April 2015 3:22 pm
You drifted away without saying goodbye
Didn't even get to see you eye to eye
Longing to look at your face and see that smile
You know! that one i haven't seen in a while
Birds of a feather, you and I
Now you're floating in the sky like a little butterfly
i kid, i joke, i lie...you were never a butterfly
but you will forever be my star up high
Looking down on us from new he...
