Humanity.

Emotions in excess,

Unyielding feelings

That I need to express,

Its what makes me human

That I sometimes detest.

Moral Stability.

With all he’s done

Within her

He finds, a moral compass

Within her,

He finds balance.

My Words.

Through my words,

I sometimes wonder

If you feel

What I want you

To see,

Or does it all

Pull us asunder?

Extraterrestrial Gateway.

Elevated in our presence

The moon

At the darkest times

Looks like a portal

To a better place.

Identity.

Not only is he rowdy

But his characterization

Falls under ‘cloudy’,

Unclear,

Makes sense

After you see

How often he rains

On parades.

All Smiles.

Such a colorful smile

She has,

Indeed, she is,

The rainbow

To my clouds.

Bursting Your Bubble.

And just like that

Her thought bubble was burst,

All it took, was one word,

For her to see

That he was not the man

He used to be.

Then Again …

Then again,

You don’t always

Have to hold a pen

To write

What makes

Others happy,

Instead of yourself.

Because Bloggers Play Tag.

I was recently tagged in a 21 question challenge by my one of my friends, Brett (yeah, he’s gonna kill me for taking this long to write this post lol blame my dissertation buddy 🙂 ). If you need to look at his blog you can check it out here

 

1. What is your current fashion obsession?

Haha me and fashion are not at all on the same wave-length. However, I just noticed recently that I love wearing flak jackets; that’s probably the only thing i’m obsessed about.

 

2. What are you wearing today?

Indoor clothing with my very special jacket to stay warm. Why is it special you ask? It reminds me of a few mistakes I made last year and how I overcame that ordeal. Ironically enough, I’m wearing the jacket on my twitter pic

 

3. Hair?

I always keep a fade, keeping it short most of the time.

 

4. Do you nap a lot?

Wait, there’s more to life outside of napping? Thats news to me 😀

 

5. Why is today special?

Apart from being blessed with a new day and being alive its also special ’cause hey, I haven’t talked to my fellow bloggers in a long while.

 

6. What would you like to learn to do?

Sky-diving solo without being strapped to an instructor; I believe having such experiences makes you look at life in a different way entirely. Besides, imagine the Google-earth-like selfie you could take from all the way up there.

 

7. What’s for dinner today?

Rice and curry, cooked by moi…is it vain for me to say I love my own cooking more than others? (well, except my sister’s Potato salad, can’t get enough of that one)

 

8. What are you listening to right now?

My playlist is on random right now, nothing specific.

 

9. What is your favorite weather?

I used to love having an overcast, but I’ve recently gained a fondness for sunny days. They rarely come metaphorically, so i’m starting to appreciate them literally.

 

10. What’s the last thing you bought?

Jelly Babies, i’m obsessed.

 

11. What are your essentials when traveling?

Apart from my phone? my ear-phones, definitely.

 

12. What’s your style?

Haha I don’t have one, but if  what my friends tell me is true then I guess Im the kind of person to mind my own business. Blunt for the most part, makes other people think i’m pompous.

 

13. What is your most challenging goal right now?

Finishing my dissertation due 6 November, I haven’t had the time to do anything else.

 

14. If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?

Hmmm, haven’t thought about that. Probably Japan or China, one or the other. I find their culture, interesting.

 

15. Favorite vacation spot?

Anywhere where my family is, I rarely see them except on Christmas.

 

16. Name the things you cannot live without?

God, definitely, everything else becomes secondary.

 

17. How was your childhood?

I was NAUGHTY…my rap-sheet can be measured from here to  Timbuktu. I had awesome friends though, but when it comes right down to it, I was the one who always engineered mischievous ideas for the gang. *sigh* how time flies.

 

18. What would you like to have in your hands right now?

Darth Vader’s light saber…. No, seriously, Darth Vader’s light saber.

 

19. What are you most excited for?

Finishing my Dissertation…second time i’m mentioning the darn thing in this post lol it has its fun moments though, when all the research connects and I find a variable that adds a whole new dimension (Fulfills my wanting to be Sherlock dream)

 

20. If you could go anywhere in the next hour, where would you go?

Moscow, Russia. Yeah, I need to see my parents after so long.

 

21. Which countries have you visited?

The USA, South Africa, Botswana, Russia, Netherlands and Germany (I thank the Lord for all the safe travels)

 

Here is a list of the bloggers I nominate for this challenge:

 

Pearly

 

ForgottenMeadows

 

Dorinda

 

Thank you for reading my post, I hope you enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂

Stagnant.

Was their romantic stagnation

All part of his imagination?

Perceiving too much,

Into the smallest hints;

He never thought

He’d become such.
