Sunset

As you watch the sun go down,it’s bright orange colours blazing the skies,remind you of the years you burned away,self-loathing in front of a mirror. Listening to taunts from kidswho didn’t love themselves,why you had to be so dark,your nose too big and wide,your lips too thick. Now when you look in the mirror,you see […]

Wonder Women

When I look at her every day, Fresh as a rose In all the way. Little she speak sometimes aloud, She is full of fire, excitement and magical mould. She is like a flourished tree, All her thoughts may like the linnet be. She never shuffles love with pity nor hate, Not just Beauty she […]

I perceive an epiphany. Susi Bocks […]

Home Sweet Home

Cold Weather

I am wrapped, skeleton-like…in my blanket.Emasculated by the weather, falling into an abyss of its cold life threatening prison. A moody cup of coffee indefferently stares at me, its face turned to the broken side of miserable table. I grab it angrily towards my kiss-longing cursed lips. Oh, how lonely a soul can be on […]
