A few shoe cartons of a lifetime’s worth

A few shoe cartons of a lifetime’s worth

Mercilessly tucked in between the red backs of my Tintin comics, the binders filled with my old drawings and the random little tidbits I gathered throughout life, are a few plain-looking shoe cartons. It was a long time since they contained shoes. Instead, they have become museums of sorts. Or rather they are like those…

Sand

Sand

Today I woke up to vivid dreams building heavily from passed experiences. Dreams that never happend in real life but that was close enough to reality for me to not question their validity neither in my sleep nor as I woke up.  Still half a sleep my dreams lingered as waves slowly returning to the…

Escapism or a lack of purpose

Escapism or a lack of purpose

I haven’t been writing much lately. Inspiration left me long ago to go fuck someone else into mediocre poetry or some bullshit paragraphs of gibberish no-one reads. In her place, the brain-dead nothingness of a purposeless life has made herself ever-present in my flesh. It crawls under the surface as a leech, sucking the soul straight…

My biggest fear

My biggest fear

I’m heading for a cliff’s edge where no bridges have been built. I worry, not to fall over, but to foolishly stand there looking over the drop. I’m on a pursuit for a path that not only feds the passing of time, but leads to a destination. Only, I realise that while time passes whether…

17th Memory Lane ave.

As though a person in love waiting for a scheduled rendezvous, the excitement of my South Africa trip is finally starting to kicking in. As the new day dawns, this feeling for the future will be replaced by the experience of the moment. The past few weeks I have had little to no time to…

Simply living or living simply

Simply living or living simply

There is something to be said about the mundane. A charm in the nothingness that happens everyday, in the essence that could be described as nothing less than life. For a while now this is what has been my bedfellow; the ordinary, the things that will never be put down to memory: Ignoring the things…

Another one bites the dust

Another one bites the dust

I hate goodbyes. Not because I mind change, or for good things to come to an end. New things are always around the corner. At a third of my life lived, my lifestyle has seen to it that I experience regular goodbyes. Some welcomed, others split the soul in two. Waving to a shadow behind…

On the streets in Catania

On the streets in Catania

They are roughly my age. In worn clothes and dirty backpacks they hang like teenagers in shade of the trees across from the restaurant where we’re eating lunch. They are as barefoot as the kind-looking, but dirty, dogs they have with them. Their ‘too-cool-for-school’ body language portrays a desire for freedom through revolt against society,…
