I wrung my heart out today and it was graphite on paper. Then I could finally look for my writing which was stuck somewhere inside me. Behind my heart, I felt. Behind those words that fell on the paper. And, then, immediately, this came: My writing suffers when I suffer. And then I stumbled upon […]

happy 2015

January 1, 2015


I long for something fresh and inspiring to say. Nothing comes to mind. I’m searching, i’m searching, and I find nothing. So here, this will have to do: Have a happy, luminous new year. Fill it with love and laughter (and a little innocence). For yourself and for others. Make this the year that you […]

{what’s the point? i wondered}

December 5, 2014


I was reading some of my poems from NaPoWriMo 2013 recently (for reasons I’ll share some other time) when I came across one that I had shared with my ex. I had written it before we met but, as we started our relationship, I became convinced that I had written it for him and me…except […]

[in a life in the stars]

October 26, 2014


in a life in the stars  in the poet in his prose in the lines and the dots in the coming and the goes in the quiet in the words and the silent in the cold in the voice in the whisper the gem in the gold in that one and in mine in love […]

[returning home]

October 20, 2014


returning home  from a faraway land i am on a plane with a few bags filled with memories and things i realise too late (or: just late enough) that a suitcase the one i had taken from home has been forgotten there i look for ways to have it brought back then see: perhaps its contents […]

[traces of stories]

August 1, 2014


the skies were nothing but a void all its gems stolen and sold traces of stories left behind that would perhaps never be told broken pieces of sound if fell the emptiness swallowed them whole and night came after the darkness taking what was left of great hope

[her face was a blur]

June 23, 2014


her face was a blur or maybe a haze i don’t quite remember it’s been a few days i remember a feeling of eerie gloom a quick little thought of impending doom the room was dark and yet aglow her voice a soft whisper no more said “you’ll know when it’s time” then “just say […]

Love comes with a knife, not some shy question, and not with fears for its reputation! I say these things disinterestedly. Accept them in kind. Love is a madman, working his wild schemes, tearing off his clothes, running through the mountains, drinking poison, and now quietly choosing annihilation. ~ Rumi

[all was dark]

all was dark i could not see not a sparkle in my eye for one by one 'til it was e{ }ty he picked stars out of my sky (and hid them well) ~

[between all storms of ice and snow]

March 12, 2014


(i dunno…this just came. i was trying to write a haiku.) between all storms of ice and snow and underneath the freeze there is some calm to be found and some kind of release when dying’s done and born not yet and life’s not in the way it’s much much easier to let go much […]

[one’s idea]

March 5, 2014


one’s idea of paradise is a matter of perspective: one day it’s a little town on a hill by the sea in Italy… then one day it’s as simple as anywhere with you.


February 8, 2014


give me your words of praise and hell make me the reason for your well- being and hurl kind words at me that slither and writhe snakily twisting around each sorry curl around each limb we'll let them twirl and madden me and I’ll crave more: on me many more words you’ll pour! they’ll crush […]

let’s go next door

January 7, 2014


2013 was a great year and blah blah blah 2014 started with a lessthanBANG. i fell sick on the very first day of this new year which, i’m sure, will still be awesome. i mean, “what you do on the first day you will on the rest too” is clearly an untrue saying. (what, you […]

September 2, 2013


At night city lights flicker the city we walked through aimlessly sometimes hand in hand sometimes your arm about my waist claiming me and yes i’m yours we are covered by the same blanket of glittering stars and a radiant moon lights our nights and although there are miles and miles between us at least […]
