Catching Fear

Catching fear in my palms, I knew I was devoid of hope, yet I still pushed on with the gossamer silver cord of life. Bang! BanG!

Unwarranted, Outmatched

Rifle on my back, stepping into the aperture of the wilderness, orchestrated the wild into a war song, torn up from the outside, wretched from the inside, cacophonous ambiance, the trees were the sombre strings engulfing my entirety, asserting to me the only certainty was uncertainty.

Nian (Part 6)

As I woke up, I saw his ebony figure standing by the opening of the hut that we lived in. “Xi. I’m glad that you are awake.” He spoke with his back towards me. “I think I should not fill you in with more tedious details. Let’s get straight to the point, next season of […]

Nian (Part 5)

It was when the sun had made its mark over the horizon, beckoning the continuity of the banal life that had been led by the village. My life varied from them. My brother, an adventurous hungry soul, brought me up on the mountain which became our commonplace, and our favourite place, doing music, orchestrated by […]
