Honour and Certainty

It is through one’s place in a world that one can be subjected to their perceptions on societal endearment.  Endearment can be of honour and certainty that has the potential to limit some while push others to strive and conquer; and therefore, can be placed upon certain minorities.

Promise to Love

The following is a response to mine and Suneet’s poem seminar. It also my personal response the poem itself.   We are empty and those that fill our void are important. You are important. Please continue to fill my void and I will meet you halfway. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that […]

Thee Only

The following is an emulation of the poem “To _ _ _” by Edgar Allan Poe.   Not long ago, the writer of these lines, In the mad pride of intellectuality, Struggled to find the words to express how weak she really was. Denied that ever an emotion could overcome logic. Feelings that arose within […]

All’s Well That Ends Well

The following is a rant. You are my happiness. No, you are what makes my happiness possible. Where there is nothing, you lay the roads – happiness just happens to follow. Who wouldn’t follow such beauty? I open a book of sonnets and cannot read the words on the pages. My eyes are blinded by […]

Instead of relying on ourselves as the source of certainty we require to pursue said actions; our belief is molded to concede to others’ perceptions of the circumstance as more valid and true. Usually in such instances, individuals have been forced to […]

Ophelia’s Colour

I’m not sure if I am missing a ‘creative piece’, so here it is! I found myself bare and pierced. As the last heart string broke, the knife that hung over my naked heart fell to it’s rightful place. I had found myself with only with the shallow breaths my body had allowed me to take. Eyes […]
