POETRY | Suicide, Murder

Image credit: Pinterest He’s the fire that dances brightly across the skies, Painting it with bold strokes of red and yellow. She’s the water that rocks softly against the shore, Humming sweet lullabies in her native tongue. He fell in love with her. She fell in love with him. He longs to touch her face but the flames Go out with a scorching pain when he did. She desires his arms around her but she Would hurt him every time she gets close to him.

Image credit: Usha Shantharam It was Sunday morning when I saw Mom’s body sprawled over the bed. Her eyes were wide open with blood trickling from the corner of her mouth. I felt for a pulse. I shook her heavy body. I dialled for an ambulance. They merely took her pulse once the medical officers arrived.

But if anyone knows how to take this “child’s play”on to a whole new level, it’s definitely Sharon Kow.

POETRY | The Tones of Skin

Image credit: Mccollegeblog   “I go to a food stall and get served last, the seller acknowledging those with the same skin tone first. I look for a salesperson but I get ignored, as again, skin tone matters. I apply for jobs, but half of them want a certain skin tone, or in some cases, “those who can speak certain languages only”.
