Opportunity (for Poets United)

I'd rather regret having done it
Than not having tried at all

Missed opportunities
And lost chances
Always beg to know
What if

Failed trials
And lessons learnt
Only suggest
How to do it better

Costumes (for Sunday Scribblings)

Identity displayed and reflected
In an array of colourful costumes
We play like children
Dressing up as heroes and heroines
Of the tales we spin
By following one thought
After another
Enslaved by the stories
Of who we are and who we are not
We build our own prisons
Solidify our experiences
And convince each other that
Naked awareness
Is in need of dressing up

Friday, 8 June 2012


Has built itself a nest
Deep in the confines of my mind
I have been brought up
To change things
Rather than complain
So here I am changing
And changing
And further changing still
And I’m starting to wonder
If I ever will
Find that stillness
That happiness outside
While I’m running away
From my own inner light

Fortress (for Sunday Scribblings)

Lay siege on me
Surround my walls
And gather your army

Choose your weapons
My dear
Don’t just whisper
Sweet nothings
In my ear

Let your breath
Caress my skin
The touch of your lips 
Be the ultimate win

Play the game
Use your tactics
Increase the suspense
Try to reduce me
Seduce me
Overcome my defence

Override my guards
Overthrow my stakes
Surmount the moat
And then enter the gates

I surrender
With a quickened breath
Awaiting to die
“Le petit mort” – a small death.
