On Fear, Success, And Wishing Stars

wish

Sometimes, some days, some nights, out of nowhere, my throat chokes up. My stomach heaves. The world, a moment ago bound by the walls of the room, balloons outwards; the sky is too wide, the streets are too long, the world is too big, too big, and I—

I am scared. Continue reading

Yes, You’re Going To Die and Rot In the Ground—So Here’s What You Should Do

I think it is healthy for the soul to visit a cemetery every now and then, just to remind yourself of the briefness of life.

Granted, it’s a macabre way to spend your Saturday afternoon, but it’s worth the perspective it brings. Better yet, for the less easily disturbed, watch a documentary on burials. Continue reading

I figured it out.

Today, when I woke up this morning, I figured it out.

O, The Miserable Reality Of Our Days

faces

Is it just me, or is there, oh, I can barely explain it, it’s just one of those things that exist but you can’t express them because words are inadequate and in truth you’re not sure exactly what it is in the first place, only that it’s there, and awful, and ruining everything. Continue reading

When Everyone Seems To Have Their Place In The World, Except, Well, You

lost

Perhaps it’s the warm summer evenings. Or the fact that I moved homes, and am still trying to find my footings, re-gain the familiarity that comes from living in the same place for an extended period of time. Or it could be just hormones. Anyway, what I’m trying to get at is, recently, I’ve found myself growing more and more melancholy about, well, myself. And, well, life, and stuff. Continue reading

Ferris Wheels

As a rule, dreamers prefer to see the world, people and life, and, well, everything, really, through rose-coloured glasses. However, it would be more accurate to call them cracked rose-coloured glasses: though we are good at noticing, from afar the nitty-gritty details of the world, due to our idealism, our vision is often faulty and fractured when it comes to closer ground – namely, our own surroundings, and the people around us.

Even when the needle quivers a little, here and there, its signals are ignored. Continue reading
