She was a rebel Grappled with emotions Deemed to be happy But a storm within a cave She wanted to unravel A humongous scream But she ended up dumb The scars are too deep She began to wonder What is left in the end Once something is broken It is difficult to mend A rebellious heart Broken.. within..

I told him I will write of him, the evening and the rest of it, and he tells me I should send him the link. I might, out of sheer bitchiness. I could be that, when someone deserves it, or plays the ultimate jerk trying to outdo himself in achieving the height of self-centric behaviour. I have known this specimen ...

So last night I couldn’t sleep and ended up wondering what became of the characters from the famous children’s novels by Enid Blyton; The Famous Five. As the hours rolled by and sleep didn’t come I ended up formulating my theory of what became of Julian, George, Dick, Anne and Timmy. Julian: Julian is working a 9 to 5 desk ...

You took me off my pedestal And you placed me on the ground And as I lay between your feet I felt so safe and sound You looked into my eyes so long Like you could read my soul And in opening my heart to you I discovered it was whole You pulled away the satin curtains To reveal a ...

I don’t want to count the stars, And wonder at those glistening points Nor wander through the untouched thicket, Pffft! Who has time for all this! Well, I don’t ask for much. Never have. There is Simply not enough time, nor patience For self is the centre of it all. Minutes fall around me, hours […]

“Chivalry is still alive!” We end up fighting for my handbag. All because of a comment I made that it contained my laptop in it.

They are all perfectly valid reasons and I am looking forward to that experience in a few months again. The peace and quiet, the gentility of the locals, not constantly harassed by having to look after people on holiday (shopkeepers, house owners renting ...

Single Parenting: For the Love of a Child Are you a single parent? Have you gone through years of trying to make ends meet with your priorities tilted towards your child and then be judged by people who think they know what is best for you, try to boss you, and think they know what’s better for you then you do, and also try to exploit you? Then ...
