Piggy in Tigerskin

Stranger things have happened in the animal kingdom, but this one is just damn cute!

Xmas Party

Here's a teaser of a ficlet I wrote last December. Inspired by my madcap muse. You know who you are! =p

[...]

There was something incredible erotic about the way you held the cigarette with your left hand, pale lithe fingers passing forth between your lips before coming back to rest lightly against the top of your knee. Every now and then you tapped burned ashes into a transparent glass dish, seemingly unperturbed by the fact that it was already overflowing with the half-end of burnt-out sticks. The silver band on your middle finger did more to arouse my curiosity than the jewelled ring on your little digit.

When you spoke, your voice was like deep velvety silk, catching me off-guard that I couldn't help but stare wide-eyed.

"Look."

If you like what you read, gimme cookie and I'll send you copy. Hey, that rhymes! =)

What Does It Means To Love Writing?

This is a delayed reaction. Or as Audrey would say, a 'thoroughly boiled/steamed/insert-own-verb' reaction.

Yes Shin darling, some, and I must emphasise, some bloggers, are egocentric creatures. The rest are just idiots.

Look at me World, I can write! (insert self-absorbed gleeful laughter)

*.*

Joke aside. Why do people write? It's common sense everything we do, we do for a particular reason. And I would argue that everyone writes with an agenda in mind.

Some write to justify how great they are, others to whine about the s***ty life they own, to share the day's trials and tribulations and successes, and of course we must not forget those who write because they have nothing better to do.

But I believe, many more write because they cannot imagine living a life doing something else.

If what they say is true, that the pen is mightier than the sword, then allow me the honour to weave my magic and make a difference in your world.

^.^

I forgot when it was I decided I wanted to be a writer. But I'm glad I didn't choose anything else.

Sincerity

Today

I don't feel like smiling that
false
pretentious
upturn twitch of lips
I'm not that gracious
to think only of your happiness

when I smile it doesn't mean
I'm happy
and when I don't it doesn't mean
I'm not

With a smile you can fool
everyone; even yourself
into believing in miracles

So if my smile suggests I'm without worries
Well, don't you feel you've been cheated
by a thin line of misleading information

Do you remember how god sunk the world
for days and days
and days?

Some people never learn

Today

I woke up
Buried within the closeness of my heart

Blur Dear

Do I love you? I'm not sure
My dilemma is you make me very insecure
Your charms and manners may be the lure
But unfortunately I am super blur
So I won't know unless you make it clear
That I'm the only one who is dear
In your heart, do you hear?

*

Something corny to kickstart this Tuesday morning. What was I thinking? Nothing I fear.
