The image always remained unbroken, in the unspoilt perfection of a dream. Finished in gloss, unspoilt and frozen It always stared out at me, framed in wanting, right in sight but so far away from touch. Taunting. A painful reminder of the perils of waiting, waiting until the feeling freezes. Fading. And then all that’s […]

It was cold beneath my feet, the solid ice throttling my soul and my back became separated from my lungs, leaving me fragmented and detached from myself.

There were cold stairs everywhere. Once, they would have welcomed faithful souls into its generous cradle but now they stood defeated and bitter, intimidating and wasted-reminding footsteps of the blasphemy they sow.
