Poem: A December Day

December Day The air is crisp, cold and clean. My breath sparkles in its grasp like fairydust. I feel like a fairytale’s dragon.   The darkness cloaks the clouds, Choking out any lasting glimmers of light, As the sun sets low in the Winter sky.   The trees look fragile. Their vulnerability exposed, By the... Continue Reading →

Poem – What’s In A Tattoo?

The needle pierces my body, But I feel no pain.   Black Ink drowns my pores, Euphoria begins.   I am in paradise, I am transformed.   My skin marked before my eyes, An external expression of an inner form.   This is the poem I wrote for my first ever podcast published on my blog!...

Audio: What’s In A Tattoo?

What's In A Tattoo?   Do you have  tattoo? If yes/no, why? Are they works of art, or, blights to our sight?

Sigmund Freud – Pioneer or Provocateur?

The name 'Sigmund Freud' brings with it antagonistic thoughts in my mind, was he a sexist pig or pioneering psychoanalyst? I was going to enter a poetry competition recently about his findings on 'civilisation and it discontents'. But something stopped me in my tracks. It was the opinions of others around me when I told... Continue Reading →

Celtic Cavemen

Newgrange, Co. Meath, Rep. of Ireland The Emerald Isle has its fair share of busy cities and pretty coastlines so why not go and visit a big-ass dome in the middle of a field instead?

Poem: Fight

It doesn't matter what's wrong or what's right. If you go left, I'll go right. I don't want anyone to know I cry at night, So that's why I always put up a fight. I'll fight on a Monday, I'll fight on a Tuesday. I'll fight when you choose-a-day, Cuz for me, it's never a... Continue Reading →
