Old friend,

It’s been a while, years, since we’ve said anything at all, so this may seem out of the blue.. or maybe not because I won’t even send it through.

There has been a revolution. I don’t know if you’ve heard? I’m sure you must have, wherever you are in the wo...

Where am I?
I’m floating on marching souls
And I must be dreaming.
The ground beneath us
Rejoices at the beat of their soles.
I can see them
Lo and behold
Lassoing a towering cross
And tugging at the bright side of the moon.
I can see them
A wave of blazing flags
They...

There’s a wound in you
That challenges us not to love
so we could love, regardless
There are people in you
That are intolerant and ignorant
So we learn to tolerate, regardless
There are ideas entrenched within you
That we should not stand close
When they kneel to a dif...

“But it’s normal”
She looked at me with ease.
———
“What do you mean?”, I answered.
———
“It’s normal, that when lovers part
they leave

My eyes now a full circle,
draped in the light of a sunbeam.
“But by normal, wha...

I am tired
I am afraid
I don’t know what will happen.
After today
Wake up, make up
I’m thinking “seize the day”.
But the news is wretched
The office is empty
And it’s only Monday.
I am scared
I am derailed
What part of the day
remains to seize, anyway?
What part of thi...

I think I’ll leave too
Throw this suitcase out the door 
I think I’ll do that thing I always wanted
Go where I never have before 
Maybe I’ll do that Phd 
Decide to commit to the years
It’ll be hard at first
But I’ll write it out in tears 
Maybe I’ll leave for better th...

I hope that somebody loves you.
I hope they carry the world to you in their arms, but insist you build your own.
I hope they are gentle with your scars, and that they hold your hand to show you theirs.
I hope they will paint your dreams when you describe them.
I hope t...

Who doesn’t remember that distinct feeling every time our eyes well up with tears. How the heart pauses and overflows. I especially remember it when I was younger, whether it was because I came second in the race, fell off the bicycle, got bullied or didn’t get those s...

It would be a relatively short plane ride, they told me. Of course, I already knew that. 

I always thought there was something extremely peculiar about planes, those gigantic metallic machines that bridge one place to another.. that skip one time zone to another, almost...

Hi,

Three years ago, I was a Masters student and Research Assistant on the verge of venturing into academia.

That’s it, I thought, the corporate world had no place for me.

The job hunt was exceptionally difficult, mainly because I knew what I was good at, but no idea in t...
