The Cancer of May 2014

Firstly, I apologise for having been "missing-in-action" lately. I have not been writing, reading nor visiting other blogs and sites.  The month of May was not easy. It was, in a word, cancerous. This past month, we saw a few friends lose their loved ones to cancer. A few more have been battling with it. And now, ...

POEM: All Right, Good Night

All right, Good night Sweet dreams, Sleep Tight Words we say On a daily basis To our dearly beloveds Safe travels,  See you soon, Our Good byes Are not supposed to be Final Farewells Everyday exchanges We share So much we take For granted Cherishing our own security While consoling others' loss As days struggle into weeks Time sharpens the anguish Uncertainty gnaws into sanity Still, answers elude All we can do is hope against ...

Poem: The Brilliant Carcass

No amount of concealer Will hide the bruises No foundation Will quite cover the pain No red lipstick Will match the blood Dripping from inside   In the asylum of mind There are battered walls Punctured by screams The cracks on windows Mirror the scars They will never heal They are wounds No one will see or hear   Do I look pretty? Am I thin enough? Will this make me desirable? Should I let ...

My Fearless Valentine Wish

I remember when I was much younger (let's not make me count backwards here), Valentine's Day was like a HUGE deal for me. It was my absolute favourite day after Chinese New Year and Christmas.

Poem: An Ode to Corset

My darling Corset How you beguile and bind Stifling every breath  Constricting each inch Moulding us into A Beauty of Disguise Our natural form You shun  Under the wire Of lace and bones You pull, you tug Tighter and tighter Breathing is unimportant Enduring the pain is a given Such exquisite torment We put ourselves through To carve our version Of Beauty in Contortion. Is it the corset that binds, Or our very sad ...

Poem: What is SEX to you?

Pic from SMT's Travel Journal WARNING: This Poem is not for everyone. I know, the words used in the poem below are harsh, and even offensive. They are chosen especially to reflect how some men view women and sex. To truly understand why I wrote this poem, please read NO HOLDS BARRED with CINDY GALLOP.   So, you want ...

Poem: The Human Race

Turn off the screens, Watch the flow of dreams In each other's eyes. Shut down the devices, Touch life's most precious As they become memories  Most priceless. Silence the noise, But never the voice, Listen to the music Played from the heart, Songs of love irreplaceable.   What dreams may craft, How earth may move, As the day slips into night, We each are rightful stars Whose light made ...

Warning: DO NOT BE FOOLED by EVERYTHING ONLINE

Today's blog post is dedicated to sharing a cautionary tale for readers and bloggers alike. Although I have been blessed over the past year of meeting wonderful "like-minded" folks online, there are those who prey on others under different guises. As with real life, there are not-so-nice people everywhere. The same applies to the online community. So, it ...
