Today is the day of paradoxes. Love and Hate will walk hand in hand. Pleasure and Pain will become the best of friends.Life and Death will unite. But then. But then, isn’t it just any other day? I ask myself this question when a thousand roses bloom from my body. The fragile petals stroke my […]Read More Paradox
This piece uses the symbolism of different flowers. Here are the meanings of the flowers I used in my piece. Cyclamen: Resignation Gladiolus: Remembrance Yellow Jasmine: Grace and Elegance Magnolia: Love for nature Yellow Carnation: Dissapointment; Rejection The wind brushes past my tresses. Whispering secrets wrapped in the faint scent of moonlight into my black […]Read More The Language Of Flowers
Flying away to unexplored heights Following me is the deathly night A chase between my demons and dreams Inside my heart, a battle of screams. Opening one door, only to be pushed back Because my heart loves white, but my mind lives for black These passages of my soul, so labyrinthine Me, my purpose, is […]Read More Purpose
Glistening like moonlight on soft skinEach touch, like a magical heal.Those tiny raindrops on soft eyelashes,Looking like crystals on a black field A mystical rhythm and musical chant,Like angels singing a heavenly song.Fresh mud, and lush, green grass,A beautiful opera, all day long. A gentle breeze, breezing through the air,Like a calm and serene, mesmeric […]Read More Rain Kissed

In desperation, I write and rewrite my destiny. The black slate remains black. Crimson coloured curtains made of rose petals touch my body. […]Read More Into The Unknown
Deep, deep, deep inside,A place in the heart, unexplored,Lay a beautiful black rose.Touched by love and hate alike,A charming showpiece, quite ignored,Out of reach, but still so close.Some emotions that want to hide,Hide, but they just don’t go,Trapped by a beautiful rose.Lust, desire, passion–takes time,Hatred, anger and scarred ego–To gather it all, in the rose’s […]Read More Black Rose

The following poem centres around dance, something which is really close to my heart. I have made use of some words which may be unfamiliar to non-dancers. […]Read More An Ordinary Girl
